And lose the stock barrel.

The stubby stock barrel gives it an almost goofy appearance.
Other than that, I like what you've done so far.

I'm a huge fan of the ALPHA. I used mine the other day in a cold rainy game, and it preformed without skipping a beat.

I think it would look better. IRL your composite materials don't weather.

IRL a mag is made of metal... not so much on an alpha black. Again... It would just look silly...


True, I forgot about that. I would hit up EE. If I remember right he modded a M16 30 rd magazine onto his alpha, ask him how he did it.

That is an awesome idea, but i live in New Jersey and our state is gay with its gun laws... You cannot buy a 30 round magazine here...

Had a thought:

Maybe I could modify and expansion chamber mag for a 98C to fit my gun, and make it functional... hmmmmmm..... must look into this! Thanks for the Idea Snake!

I've got a 16'' R.I.S. barrel on the way. I totaly agree about the stubbiness. I will be updating soon prob middle of June when My project will be complete. Thanks!

I painted it myself using Krylon fusion camo paint and these stencils.

Paint-$20 Stencils-$20

Enjoy!

Grip can be found here.

as long as the X7 grip has a weaver mount they will fit on that rail. I believe it does.

That is the most amazing gun I have ever seen,I have 2 questions about it:

1)How did you paint it?

2)How much did it cost?

Thanks man!

If you visit www.tacticalcamo.com and read up on all the helpful info they have to offer, you can get a good idea on how to paint using his stencils. The stencils cost me $20 and the paint I used also cost me $20.

I have deff spent alot on uprades... prob about $300-$400 total inc. cost of marker.
