This is my gas blowback Beretta compared to my last upload which was the spring model. Heres a pic from the other side: [link]
It would almost be finished if the paint wasnt an issue. It looks perfectly fine in shots and videos but when you actually see it in person its messy and sticky to hold it and has crap stuck on it. I've taken the paint off multiple times and resprayed but everytime it comes out messy. The gun was clear due to UK gun laws as i dont have a license i can only get coloured or clear airsoft guns. This is just to show how its looking at the moment but im going to have to buy the proper chrome Tokyo Marui model so the frame wont be painted. As i dont have a license it will need to be painted but i have asked them about it and all they paint is the slide which i dont need anyway. Its expensive but i'll have to if i want it to be right. All thats missing is the laser, which Madam Wesker has at the moment. I got one as close looking to the RE5 one as i could find. I also have a rail which i hadnt added for this pic but i fitted on last night and took this pic: [link]
Havent sprayed it chrome yet but might leave it black, depends how the laser looks on it. If it fits that is, if not i'll have to buy a different rail. The Tick rail might be better, isnt so bulky on the receiver but if this looks alright then i'll just stick with this one
Another issue with painting it is that the buttons no longer work properly, the one to move the slide back into position when its pulled back no longer works at all and the trigger isnt connecting properly to the hammer the majority of the time now. I took a vid of the gun if you want to see it: [link]
can see it wasnt firing properly and i had to hold it on the other side to try to get it to connect. The safety is also too slack and goes on sometimes without me realising it, when i was rebuilding the slide a pin and spring came out of it and im not sure where they go to put them back, they make the safety a bit tighter will need to see if i can work out where to put them back
Once the gun is fully finished i will upload a final pic of it, most likely having bought the proper chrome gun. This plastic isnt good for paint sticking to it..
EDIT: This is what the gun originally looked like: [link]
