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!

Just watched this vid, this guys good! All mods I’d like to do myself, especially the magazine guide rail. Guess I gotta go buy a 3D printer now.

Pretty sure Matt still sells the rails; wouldn't hurt to ask him if you're after one. He's on the forum here; search / PM Dynofiend

Hello :)

Yup I have all the files for the printed parts on my rifle and have made them to sell before. Postage costs can be an issue globally with small orders but there are alternatives we can talk through :)

I can vouch for Matt’s loading rails, they make loading mags a breeze! Matt is quite ingenious!

Matt,

I would gladly pay you for a conversion kit for the grenade lanucher, and instructions. I think that would make my use of that replica so much more enjoyable, and further break peoples minds at the local field!

I am also interested on instructions on converting the shroud to allow the lower reciever to be removed without disassembly of the whole replica. Were there any parts that you made? Does the lower and upper stay rigid with the shroud conversion?

If you still have my email we can talk particulars on the buying and shipping part.

Thanks very much for the kind words regards the rails and the conversion :)

I would love to offer the parts for a grenade conversion, but regretably there is only one 3d printed piece that I can replicate (the front cap). All the other parts were just fabricated by hand from aluminium stock, and I have no measurements or anything to help me replicate them. I'd also say that roughly 80% of the work involved is in modifying the spas cage interior and the airsoft grenade launcher itself, and it all kind of needs to be done in conjunction with the custom fabricated parts so that they all line up with each other.

I have another thread on this forum which shows some interior shots of the conversion in progress which should allow you to see what I did to get it all to fit, but other than that and the front cap part, there's not a lot I can supply, sorry :(

I understand, I’m interested in the cover peice, and that speedloader, if you can replicate that too!

I have an idea on the mounting (pic rail).
