Is there anyway i can convert this airsoft rilfe into a paintball gun? or maybe use it as a body kit? it extremly durable so i think it should be able to accept a paintball gun but if so how would that be possible?

Why dont you just get the X7, because the X7 is actually based on the SCAR

Of course it can be used as a body kit. You just need to get one into your hands and start taking measurements to determine where things would need to be dimensionally modified to fit. As for outright converting it, you'd better be ready to do some serious machining both on a mill and a lathe, not to mention that you'd need to decide upon the means of attachment for any critical components (fasteners, threading one part into another, whether or not to use bolts or pins, friction-fit, etc.) and you'd have to chose a valve design suitable for the shape and size. IMHO, you'd be better off buying something cheaper as the basis for such a mod unless you're already skilled in metalworking and/or gunsmithing (as either discipline would have already provided you with the skills and know-how to undertake such a project without too many issues). Warcowboy could probably give you some pointers on how to go about executing such a mod without creating unnecessary work for yourself.

This is the mods and upgrade room. We need to encourage people to make stuff. I'd say go do it if you have it, but other wise don't spend $576.00 on it.

that's a bit on the expensive side, what i would do is find a cheaper model, steal the stock off of it and stick it on an x7.

I believe somebody recently posted pictures somewhere around here of an airsoft SCAR stock that they had attached to an X7; you probably could locate just the stock itself somewhere and modify it to bolt onto the endcap of the X7.

Yep, I plan to build one soon enough.
I will have this one in the things to do section of projects. I have planned this very one for some time now.
That STAR version is very expensive, but its the only way you'll get the true grenade launcher with it.
JLS makes a cheaper version, but IMO it would need duracoating to get the look back to realistic.

thanks guys very helpful. i do like the one above but the color is a lil off and its not an exact copy...i kinda of wanted to do it very precisely.ado the price is a lil high, its justified with the functional grenade launcher. any other recommandations on what to use as a base gun?

something small and workable

ion (probably your best bet)
98c (probably second best)
(some) spiders
brass eagle (don't waste your money)
a5 (maybe)
any pistol basicaly (but don't spend too much or too little)

some of these may require alot of moding and molding my sugestion is that you take some spray foam and use it to fix the shell of the airsoft gun
guy "How come you guys didn't arm the bomb"
aimforthetrash "because we all died"
my crowning forum achhivement
Feedback here soon.
I support Mike and TechPb. Put this in your sig if you do too.

Sticking a pb gun inside an airsoft shell will never be as sturdy as buying special pb gun mod kit parts. I put G3A3 parts on a pb gun and had to hold them on with hose clamps. I couldnt be very rough with it and took it apart after one game. Some airsoft parts can be used, the only ones I would NOT use are the stock and barrel shroud/grips. Body kits would be ok probably, you might have to dremel the inside to make it fit and deffinetly have to make a slot for the bolt and feed tube where ever they are on your gun.

from what i can see the scar above seems very durable for an airsoft gun, being made with the same materials a real scar would.
thats why i choose it instead of a cheaper version....and if that launcher cound use paintball grenade rounds its god-like

Yea someone suggested the ion...thats a pretty good price for a used one like 175$ i believe...i can already see this being an expensive project probably 800 and up...but itll be worth it in the end i guess. any other suggestions ?
