Didn’t expect to go so hard for a first build. Wrecked the gen 9 case for over tightening and broke the default wiring for impatience. So after new case and wiring (and custom tools, grommets, rings, paint, glues, et al) finally it is done. On to my next one, An SLR, half built already…and then an M16A2…


Shit hot and pimped out bro , well done :sunglasses:

shmexy blaster my dude.

Is that scope from ?

If so, my one is shooting downwards.
I’ve tried adjusting it but it doesn’t seem to make a difference.

Thanks, Liam👍🏼

Welcome! Don’t shop at Tactoys.

Send it back, full refund.


Ok, any other decent gel blaster websites? Thanks👍🏼

M4A1, Xforce Tactical, Tactical Edge Hobbies. There are more but those are large and stand by their items Aus wide.

Start there others will suggest more.

I think the one in the pic from last year is a real Bushnell 1x40RD. You may not get the adjustment in cheap knockoffs to adjust down enough.

Others may suggest good RDS and where to get :+1:

Really like how u put the rail covers on top, that looks really cool

I love the ACR. I like how you fitted the drum mag. Did you have to sand the mag or the actual mag well?
Here is my ACR. It doesn’t have a gearbox yet, I’m currently having a CNC one built for me at Big Boss.


Any issues with putting that handguard on? And that gearbox built was around $300 more than just the 92h box from BBT so doing it myself although putting in that much $ if not more.

Ive wondered if its a bad idea doing the magwell. Would j10 mags still fit ok?
Be easier than doing the mags I have at least 3 to do.

I wish I had the tech skills to build a gearbox, but I’m useless at that stuff so I leave it to the experts. Body mods are easier for me to do. The hand guard fits perfectly, I have an 18 inch bushmaster barrel assembly inside it. You can see it a bit more in this pic lol


That’s a really nice job, I’m a big fan of Black and Tan and ACR’s. Well done.

Here’s ‘Black Betty’ my modded ACR, only finished about 8 weeks ago. Thanks to Aitchi’s gel blasters and Edmoe’s mods in Mount Gambier. 50 cm barrel, with gel igniter hidden in suppressor, 18.1 SHS gears, Hi Torgue motor, M110 spring, 11.1v, metal black out kit, 380+ FPS.


What is a M110 spring, is it like a 1.5 ? Do you have problem with that drum mag falling out? I didn’t have much luck with that type of drum on the ACR.

Love the m4 handle on it, actually looks dope!
