The reason I am doing this in a separate thread is because I believe the self eject part of my M1 Garand build can be used with the magazines being used in most of these builds. In any case I have found a way to put the bottom plate cover on an AEG M1 Garand to make it more realistic. With this plate in postion the AEG M1 Garand is virtually the same as the original from the side or bottom shot. The first photo shows an arrow to the hinge. When the shell is ejected the bottom plate pops open and the shell falls from the rifle. It's a simple matter to pop in another shell and snap the plate back into position. You don't have to line up anything for it to snap back. The hinge holds it in proper alignment and it is held in postion with a magnet. That is pointed out in the 2nd photo. When I started this build it was my desire to make a rifle as close in appearance to a "real steel" M1 Garand as possible. I have used several real steel parts, but all of those parts can be replaced with look alike parts to meet your obligations to the law. This post will be added to the "mini tutorial" for those wanting to see the eject system. [/img]

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.

ajman: 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.
