The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

 Post subject: HCG Grenade launcher

Hi All
I recived my HGC grenade launcher puchased from Matsuo. Very happy with this but wondering if anyone has done upgrades such as metal parts. Thinking of spring loading the trigger and shell lifter. Might put a metal front block but sounds like a lot of work. Im debating if I want to use this on my current pulse build. Put a ton of work on the launcher that is currently on my pulse. I know its an airsoft spas but its very close in size. I have pics comparing both. All opinions welcome.

You ever make any progress on this?

I too just picked up an HGC launcher from matsuo and plan to replace the solid resin one on my pulse now. It never occurred to me the moving parts would prevent me from attaching it the same way...duh. So now I feel a bit dumb. Oh well. If I have to gut the sucker to attach it, I may as well 'upgrade' too.

Hi
Really hate to admit this but I did gut the launcher after a lot of debate and a few beers! (sorry Matt.)I did it in a way that I can put the peices back if I want to. Managed to get my metal front block to fit after extensive grinding of the plastic. One major problem I ran into was all the grinding making the plastic very weak in the slide track for the grip at the front. After all of the work to gut it I changed my mind and used the airsoft launcher. Didnt have the heart to gut the airsoft Launcher after all the work that I have done to it. Also didnt want to spend another day having to fabricate my own metal racking system to put in the HCG launcher. Who knows I may change my mind yet again!
