Yep it would be possible. Same thing as doing a regular conversion. I wouldn't suggest doing it though. Tanker extremely uncommon in WW2, probably non existent. It would be anymore work to do a regular conversion. The socom will work for a regular conversion by the way. You'll just need to get a new outer barrel.
Yeah it could work the same way as a full sized M1. They weren't really used during WWII but I guess if you go to a reenactment where not every little thing has to be perfect you can use it. One of my friends found a g33/40 stock (the carbine version of the kar98) and was going to use it to make an airsoft one but he was told it was so rare during the war he couldn't use it. you might want to make sure you could use it first at reenactments where you live

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.
