After lots of thought I decided to modify my A-5 a little bit more... and I also took off some un-needed things such as the Stock and Sight Rail, in return I added an X-Core, Macrolined it, made the R\T a Super R\T strapped on a Q.E.V. and that's about it.. I was thinking of adding a UMP mag.. and maybe, later, turning it into a replica of the sub-machine gun in Half Life 2.

Looks pretty good, though I'd use the Xcore as my front grip.

It's not bad, but it looks wierd having the expansion chamber(or whatever it is) and a foregrip.

I say mod a hollow mag to go around your x-core, it might make it look pretty awesome. Just even if it only half covers the spankshon, it would kinda push away from the grippy look of it.

Also possibly fill the area where the stock grip goes such as that thing that UnderGroundModshop makes... doesnt have to be That, just something of that style. I love the drop, been thinking of buying one of them myself as Ive probably mentioned before.

Yes, that is IBC Rootbeer  Yeah.. one thing I hate as well is the X-core that I put on... But it's the best exp chamber out there and none of them come in "Tactical Adonized Black" :( or "Satin Black" I might actually be turning it in a UMP soon with a couple of Opsgear products... no more flatline if I do though and I'm completely inlove with it  And yeah, before I had a stock on it... but it was just too big of a profile, so I decided to slim it down from an Assault Rifle look to a Sub-Machine Gun look...Right now I can't even get my R\T to work....And Jawa.. where can I fnd a hollow mag that could go over it??

Hmmnn... Well I mean you could butcher an Opsgear one, but thats some serious $$$. If you managed to get hold of a flatblack plastic mag (second hand or something) you could buy some similar thickness plasticard and widen the mag if it didnt cover properly, or just make one from scratch if you have the skillz. I dunno, that xcore does look mighty thick on the bumps though.

I'm just starting to design a mag for my palmers out of plasticard (or similar thin easily workable plastic sheets) and thin aluminium. The palmers is thinner so it might be a tad easier than the xcore, but I dont really know. Also a large stormshield is in the works for when I ref at my local (A disk the size of a serving dish dont do much good against 17+bps) and also for indoor at the RATC (Scenario).

Oh and just had another idea, if you wanted to, butcher a plastic toy mag or something and give it sum re-inforcement or something. All ideas, just have a brainstorm.

looks nice. it will look even better once you get a mag there to cover the expansion chamber.
