So while I wait for a jingji mauser to arrive, thought I might pull apart a Galaxy Glock.
Replaced stock spring with a cut down 1.3mm rifle spring and added a 7v battery.
Which has increased distance before drop off by roughly 3-4 metres.
Next will be replacing the motor with a stock m4 gen8 motor whenever that arrives or if that doesn’t fit a brushless high torque quadcopter motor and adding an aluminium barrel.
Anyone else kit out their auto pistols beyond just a spring replacement? Has it worked? The hardest thing I’m finding is where to source metal gears… every custom machinist I’ve asked said it’d be ridiculously hard and expensive to make these gears metal.
So the choices are
-just get the gears made in nylon or other tough plastic
D.I.Y sand cast high strength aluminium gears
Smash together a custom pistol gearbox that would fit shs metal gears.
