Another cheapo
« on: November 06, 2016, 10:28:13 AM »
After an old friend saw my first attempt at converting an SMK79 to hpa he asked me to convert his. So, that,s what I did. As opposed to the first one I had problems getting the power up. But, after a bit of fiddling, it settled at 11fpe. Honestly, it is so easy to do. You have to change a couple of screws for stronger ones and fit nitrile seals and , maybe fit a different TP , but that,s about it. And all for 38. Sorry , I forgot to take the photos that were asked for.

No, he did it himself . And, like me, he makes his own moderators.
