Hey guys, I just finished weathering my AGM MP44. It was quite a lot of work, and I really did many mistakes, but I'm kinda happy with the result. I might rework the stock, it needs to look more shiny. Other than that, it's done.
Why does the stock need to be shiny? One other bot of constructive criticism: remove some of the rust. If its blued (which seems to be what you were making it look like), it shouldn't rust heavily. Only time that would happen is if it was a bare metal '45er.
My name...its supposed to appear as "LSSAH1944"....its not Issah

Not very shiny, more like semi-gloss. I think the stocks needs one coat of varnish. Why? Because I like it.
It's not rust, although it looks like it. That was my first mistake: I tried to blacken the metal with fire and oil, but the main parts are not the metal I've expected, so I burned it. So what I did is burnishing, not blueing.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
