AR-15 real steel parts on M4?

Postby Mooseman » Sun Nov 05, 2017 12:13 pm

I wanted to ask the hivemind what your thoughts are on using real steel externals on an airsoft M4.

Furthermore, is it possible?

I saw an interesting wood furniture set for an AR-15 at a gun show recently and thought about how sick that would be, but make sure its possible before I traded my arm, leg, and first born son for it.

It depends on what gun you have and what parts you are looking to switch out. The tolerances for airsoft guns can vary depending on brand, or model, which means that some items may fit on say a KWA LM4, that may not fit on a G&G combat machine. because the combat machines are a starter gun and the LM4 is made to military specs.
so what brand and make of gun are we talking?

Yes, I believe the Tippmann will take real M4 parts.
Evike says "Accepts many real AR stocks and handguards" so there's you go.
