G&G releasing the M1903A3 Springfield

http://www.airsoft2day.com/news/1250...ringfield.html


Guay Guay Trading Co. Ltd. in Taiwan will shortly release their M1903A3 Springfield bolt action rifle into the airsoft market; announced at SHOT Show 2013, the model missed its initial target release date but now seems almost certain to be available for purchase come late January 2014. As written previously within another article, airsoft companies KTW, Classic Airsoft, S&T Armament, and Zeta Lab have each respectively produced M1903 Springfield replicas of their own; nevertheless, G&G Armament's iteration does boast a number of quality details that warrant consideration. Along with a one-piece laminated wood stock, the model features many steel parts including the whole gas bolt carrier, the bolt handle, bolt sleeve, anti-slide rod, the hammer, valve knocking piece, and both front and rear sling swivels.[1] A functioning bolt safety lock, release lever, and low-profile hop-up dial only further complement the replica's quality. Already available for pre-order at CWI Airsoft for 420 USD, a ceremonial version of the G&G M1903A3 in silver chrome finish can now be reserved as well.

They have been "ready to release" that for almost as long as their Garand, so since we have all seen their Garand I am so excited to get one of these. Oh wait, no one has seen their Garand. So I expect it will come out by Christmas. Just not sure of what year.

I'm excited for this, but I suppose they will actually have to release it for me to be able to get one.

Yeah, I want one too. But I have wanted it since I first heard it almost ready, which was about a week after the Kar98 came out. That's also about the time they were "about to release" their Garand. Its kinda become a "I will believe it when I see it" thing. I have wanted a Springfield for years and hope it actually does come out soon. Its bout the only bolt gun I can actually see myself gaming.

It finally came in. Matrix (AGM) MG42 AEG. I was in a hurry today so I didn't take my time taking these photos. Sorry for the bad pics.

First impression: Wow, this thing is massive. I've never seen a real MG42, so I don't know how it compares to this but it's a bit bigger than I imagined, and it's not light. The shipping weight was 25.5 lbs. Not sure how much the AEG weighs but I imagine it'll wear me out in the field. The color looks good. The receivers look nice and flat black. The handguard is a bit more shinier than I like, but it's still not bad. I noticed that some paint chipped off already at places like the iron sights where metal parts hinge and also some parts like the bipod and screws on the top cover were loose. I have to tighten them. I'm not sure if it was made like this or if Evike did it (I needed them to change the spring to pass Canada regulations). The wood stock looks good. Twists on and off firmly. My repro MG42 sling didn't fit. The spot at the grip is too wide for it.

I got a few projects going right now so I probably won't go into the gearbox soon. Maybe some more detail pics later.









It barely fits in my Condor MG bag with the stock removed.

That orange flashhider.....

The MG34/42 slings also do not fit well on the RWA MG34. The grip is too fat.

Take pics of how the drum mag feeds into the gun and whats under the top cover plz. Also, the battery storage.

As requested, pictures of the feeding mechanism and drum.

I'm not familiar with MG's. Can someone tell me what this does? Does it draw power from the AEG battery instead of using AA's? Or is this a signal wire signalling the motor to pick up bb's? The instructions just tells you to connect the connector to the gun, it doesn't say what it is.

Here's a pic of the feed tube and a little connector.







You can see where the paint is already scratched from me trying to insert the drum.



There's a little bit of movement with this plate. It could potentially cause a misalignment of the feed hole... I will play around with this to see if it can be shimmed or tightened, when I have time.





Battery compartment.

Here's the drum fitted to the gun with the feed tube inserted. Giggidy. I kinda wish the adaptor wasn't there. I was going to buy some Mauser rounds on a belt and complete the look. That little door can slide open wider.



Original battery.



The battery pushed all the way into the receiver. The compartment extends to about where the stub on the wood stock begins. It has room for a larger battery.

god dammit, why cant my MG34 have battery storage like that?

and yea, that little connector probably gives it the ability to wind up the drum mag when you press the trigger.
