family pic; original sl-68 II, pro-lite and my a-5 when i first got it. sl-68 II and pro-lite still rockin' after nearly 20 years!

my a-5 has since undergone some cosmetic mods: i shaved the rear sight and top rail smooth, filled in the name plate and relocated the top bolt.


work in-progress. shaved the grip smooth too.

the upper receiver was then covered with 3m di-noc carbon fiber vinyl in the graphite color. all pics are clickable to full-size:


cqb setup! completely useless lol. stock barrel cut to 4.5", tac-cap, 12-gram c02 drop-out changer with 15-degree asa adapter and a jcs folding stock.


with jcs stock extended.


increased capacity!


all business with my trusty 12" j&j ceramic barrel and was e-grip.


close-up showing the pattern in the vinyl. still pictures don't do it justice.


the "ugly" side.

that's all. stock internals, other than a lightweight hammer, spring kit and jcs rva to help tune it and make it more efficient (fva is full-open). receiver halves are polished inside, lo-pro hopper was lined with shelf foam so it doesn't make noise as i run.

Where did you get the carbon fibre vinyl and how difficult was it to apply? Looks unreal.

Cool gun! How do you get a A-5 to shoot accurately. I have one and it is the most un accurate gun.
