BAR X7 Altercations: The On-Goiing Saga
Posted 20 July 2010 - 01:40 PM
If you dont remember what Ma Bess looks like..here she is:
Those two pics represent stage one. Thats how I got her from Engler. Well all was well and good, but there were some design problems with it that annoyed me, as well as other people. After posting a video of it on YouTube, I got requests to move the Wooden fore grip back so it eliminates that large gap between it and the marker body/magwell.
For a while I wasnt going to do anything about it, but after starring at it over and over again, I realized I had to change it..It just didnt look right. However, the first thing I needed was a Bi-Pod, so I bought one from Engler and had him paint it..thus giving us Ma Bess v2.0:
After getting that, I started work on moving the grip back...which turned out to be a longer process than I first anticipated. All good and well though, as it was worth it. Below is Ma Bess v3.0 with new Flasc barrel and grip moved back (note, I havent got the barrel painted yet..it will be soon)
(Pic with old barrel)
(Up close pic with Flasc)
Now that it is done, I move on to getting several things completed, all of which I will update my progress on here:
1) Sling attachment for the gas tube..so I can actually use a sling
2) Removal of the pistol grip (another big YouTube request) Jackson will be assisting with this
3) Finding a real BAR rear sight, modding it to fit
4) Finding a real BAR bi-pod, modding it to fit. The bipod that is on it is just too dinky and doesnt look right on Ma Bess.
Any other suggestions is more than acceptable

Are you going to straight up remove the grip so you'll shoot it like the actual BAR? (Your hands must be far larger than mine if that's the plan! )
My only suggestion, would be that once you're done, send it to engler again to get the flasc, bipod, rear sight, whatever painted to match

Definitely very cool though, I'd love an Engler! ... Though I still don't get the idea of a "minimalist" Phenom...seriously taking off the Milsim/rails doesn't make sense because for the same price you could just buy a speedball marker xD

Im actually working on removing the pistol grip right now Hope it turns out! Also sent the barrel in to Engler to get painted. Its on its way too him. I probably wont get it back until he ships me Mosin Nagant Phantom back
That I am not sure. I got to hold the minimalist Phenom while it was in its beta stages, I imagine the point was to make it look like some sort of pistol/Desert Eagle. Its actually pretty cool and really light.

Yes..it looks rough..I know. But its almost done. Very Beta stages..but I know how it make it fire consistently now..its just not secure 100%. Gotta love video decompression...ignore the retarded audio.

As for the Nagant, mine has the version 2 bolt action on it. Its a very smooth pump. I love that marker.
