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.

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.
