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!

I started pricing out the pieces and costs are double if not triple, but still doable. Will need to see if Matty makes the spaz metal cages at all anymore...

I have used real steel Thompson parts to replace parts that have broken on my Thompson AEG due to brittle metal but the best way to build a faithful Pulse Rifle, is to use an airsoft gun version of the M1A1, especially since its not very hard to pick up a used M1A1 AEG for under $100.00 (USD), and pretty much has everything needed to represent the Thompson parts of the gun.

Spend the money on good pieces that are needed for the conversion.

Let this remind us. No matter how old, if it is new to you, share it. The knowledge will inevitably be new to someone else as well...

What do your guys magwell to hopup unit area look like?

The side-supports that screw my hopup unit broke and I can't find any replacements anywhere so I had to use gorilla glue and try to glue the hopup unit in place, but I am still having feeding issues.. this is what it looks like right now:

I tried to align it and let the glue set as best as I could so it is straight but I either get it too far one way or the other.

I can find completely new total v6 gearboxes for the gun (snow wolf pulse rifle) but no hopup units ANYWHERE and I have spent probably weeks looking. short of buying a thompson for £150 and taking the hopup unit out of it for my £300 + at least that much in other upgrades / magazines for the pulse rifle and using that I don't know what else to do.

Hop-ups are pretty standard aren’t they?? Thought it wasn’t too model specific?

You can get a Well Thompson for around £70, actually pretty decent for a cheapo.

Found the complete hopup chamber set for the tokyo marui M1A1 which looks to be compatible/same as the cybergun one; http://impulse101.jp/en/thompson-m1a1-p ... s-set-4814 gonna buy that and give it a try. if I've still got feeding issues after that then back to drawing board.

CYMA/SnowWolf/Matrix is a direct copy of the Marui, that should work for you.

And now you know why I buy extra Thompson AEGs (metal gearbox models) either from Airsoft stores boneyards, or through cheap sales on ebay.
