a couple of my modified 78s and some otheres
« on: December 26, 2011, 07:17:20 PM »
i didnt see a gallery section so i thought i would put these here as they are pretty modified. i have worked on countless 78s and 79s and i love these inexpensive malleable guns. they are so easily and cheaply modified in to  shockingly accurate guns that can hold their own against rifles of 3 times the price

my silver 78 with extended gas tube and solo stock. its not finished as i will be adding a gas tube half shroud to make the stock look much neater. that gap under the gas tube will be filled and that plug will come forward a couple of inches..... one day when i have the time





heres another 78 with an eagle stock, this one has a shortened barrel. it normally has a bulk fill nipple in the end cap but i swapped over the caps to test a different gun just before the photos were taken





this was before i put the extended gas tube on, again with that god aweful scope, i bought it because it was silver but it was rubbish, i dont have it any more. these have all internals polished and modified too



heres a few other guns of mine, although a couple of them i have recently sold



i have several more but not got photos of them as yet. i also have a few that are in the process of being made. when i work on a gun it often takes forever as i always seem to be busy working on other peoples guns lol

cheers guys, that airmagnum has a 12oz paintball bottle that was refilled from a fire extinguisher but i have now changed it over to a regulated HPA bottle, i do like co2 for its consistency but air when regulated is just easier
