In response to the numerous PM's and enquires I get regarding my Marushin conversion, I have decided to post so more pictures detailing the construction. I hope these are helpful to any felllow builders. Enjoy!
Gun broken down into its component parts. the two rings on the inner barrel are actually O-rings which act as barrel spacers.
The two main receiver parts after painting
These pics show how the upper handguard is retained by the front reciever section. also note the grub-screw in the outer barrel which sits in a small hole in the stock. this retains the outer barrel and stops it from rotating. Also note the cut-down hop unit block.
here you can see how the tail of the reciever is held in place with a small section of the original Marushin stock
Bolt end assembly. the very end section is held on with a grub screw so it just acts as a cover rather than having the main screw go all the way through and out the back.

This is an absolute work of art Bosh! You have inspired me! Thanks for posting details. Your work is outstanding, full of passion, and you pay attention to detail. Could you put some captions with picks explaining some of your methods? Again SPECTACULAR WORK. When mine is complete it will top off my SS impression. Thanks Bosh!
Hier ist ein Geschenk von der deutschen Armee!....FIRE!
I have recently completed another Kar98 springer conversion, again using a JG-bar10 but this time using a Dboys K98 as the donor gun.
This was built as a commision for a friend and I went all out with this to try out some new ideas and to try to make it as realistic and close to the RS as I possibly could.
This includes turning down sections of the BAR10 receiver and adding an extra jacket to the breach section to make it the correct size, enlarging the ejection port and re-shaping the rear of the receiver.
I also added some authentic makers marks for a 1937 Kar98k from the Mauser-Werks AG Berlin Borsigwalde factory!
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.
