So here goes my tutorial on how to convert your cheap MX-991/U, into a WWII TL-122 B, C, or D.
Start off by taking apart the flashlight.
put the bulb end of the flashlight back together in order shown here.
Get out the handy dremel tool and cut the fins off the body.
(Dont do the next two steps if you are making a TL-122D(came out in late 44) next use one of the Dremel sanding cylinders and refine where you cut the fins off, and sand down the flare on the bottom piece.
next bondo up the threads on the bottom piece. and sand them to make them look something like this.
use Scotchbrite pads, and roughen up the plastic so the paint will stick well. Then paint it with At the fronts Helmet paint, or testors FS 34087 Olive Drab paint.
And there you have it, a cheap way to get you that WWII TL-122 you wanted.

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

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.
