I've managed to fit the internals from a WE M14 gbbr into an ICS M1 aeg stock and fit a load of other real steel furniture:
I modified the receiver a little to better relocate the look of the M1:
Cut down M14 magazine with a 4mm airline running to a Mancraft regulator and CO2 adapter in the stock:
I used the bottom of an ICS M1 magazine to cover up the bottom:
I've modified the WE tube loader to act as a charger which should fit in the cartrisge belt:
Loads through the top:
Overall I'm quite happy with the conversion. I didn't want a normal aeg because quite frankly, I find them a bit boring! I can get over 50 shots from a single CO2 bulb and while changing them is fiddly, I find that with the restrictions on ammunition at WW2 events, I won't be needing to do it very often!
Impressive. Obviously a video showing it in operation is the next order of business. Way back (nearly 20 years ago) when an M1 Garand airport rifle was just a fantasy I had visions of a top loader like you have created but I invisioned a plunger speed loader that would look like an unblock clip and rounds. I even tried to fabricate one using modified existing speed loader but alas nothing I came up with functioned as I had hoped.

aj czarkowski: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
