Hello,
I have recently picked up a Tippmann X-7. I have had a couple of ideas for different rifles it could emulate.
I think the Heckler Koch G3 could a possibility or maybe even the  Heckler Koch G11.
What do you all think? Any ideas?

I don't know if the G3 would really, work.  The X7 has a body-length top rail which resembles nothing close to the G3.  To pull off a G3 look I think a circular tube similar to that of the A5 would need to be used as well as a handguard that would require the use of at least a 16" barrel to look right.  Its a long rifle and just wouldn't be realistic.  I do like it, however, and would love to see someone try to pull this mod off on an X7.  It sure would take some custom work though.

The G-11 would be a tricky one. Very unusual design.

I've always had thoughts of converting an MP5 mod into an HK91... Slightly elongated body and a 5.56mm STANAG magazine, and there you go. So few people know the firearm though that I'd probably just hear "Dude, why'd you ruin that MP5?".

Yup, he actually said that.

i think the g11 would be easy to make, it's just a box shape tho.
