you know you can ungroup the tape right lol
Answers kinda obvious ;)
How do you do it?
PS we used 60+ year old wood stain on it.
How does one make the wood look like that?
Steps for making wood stocks look sexy:
1) Got to the hardware store and buy wood stain of your chosen color (preferably Minwax brand)
2) Sand off the cheap chinese paint/stain with a fine grit sanding block
3) Wipe down stock/handguard with damp rag
4) Shake the can of wood stain before opening, and open can
5) Dip a rag into wood stain and wipe the stain onto the stock/handguard
6) Repeat step five until you've stained the whole piece
7) Allow time for stain to dry
8) Once dry to touch, repeat steps 5-7 until the piece is as dark as you would like it to be
9) Let sit in a clean dry area for up to 48 hours to allow stain to cure
10) Put sexy ass stock and handguard back on your gun
You should have mention when wiping the stain on the wood, brush with the grain of the wood.
Cool, thanks for the answer.
I have a 7.2v lipo laying about... will it do well with this gun? (Im not expecting you to be able to answer that question, but hey)
I would take the gearbox down and give it a good shimming and regreasing before I ran a lipo in it.
Also, I'd probably replace the cylinder and the piston
In that case stick to a 9.6v
Hmm... Well, okay.
If i were to get into changing out the cylinder and piston, what should I get?
You could get away with just the piston and cylinder, but if you're doing it you might as well get all of it
Hmm.. Right.. Excuse my ignorance, but why is it recommended to upgrade to these parts? Is it because the lipo will not deliver optimal performance with the CM048 by default or is it because it will damage the internals of the CM048, if not upgraded?
It's because the CM048 internals, while good, are not the best and will wear out quickly on a lipo.
Also, with these parts you will get better performance out of the gun in general.
Shim the gearbox though. I cannot stress how important this is. Even with the better internals, nothing wears out a gearbox faster than improperly shimmed gears
I can't find any of those parts you linked, on danish websites though. Is there anything special about these exact parts or is it possible to just get some that share the same specifications, of some sort?
I was under the impression that 7.4s were slightly less powerful than 9.6s
I used a 7.4 in my stock ging jong and it shot slightly slower than with 9.6
I can't recommend using one in this gun simply because I have no experience with lipos other than what I've read
11.1 lipos are the ones that can fuck your gun up.
No, you'll be fine.
Any lipo up to an 11.1 can be considered a drop in upgrade and you won't need to change any stock parts.
Alright, thanks for the answers guys. I'll make sure to do the shimming, though.
I'm looking forward to get this gun.. I hope i will get around making it as beautiful as yours, felix.
What's the best battery that I can fit into the stock? It's pretty small.
I can fit my 9.6v in there.
It's this battery
But I'm p. sure you could fit a regular 9.6v nun-chuck in there too.
I'm investing in a 7.4v lipo for it next
The CM048M is the same thing except it's an AKM instead of an AK74. It'll still fit
I just got my CM048M. My lipo doesn't fit :(. So i guess i gotta buy a smaller battery.
It's a neat gun. Glad i could get the AKM, i like it over the AK74, but i still gotta get around to do what felix has done to his wood.
CM048, now only $400 in Canada
brb killing self
I'm buying one after Christmas, come down and help me make it look sexy.
