Alright, I moved the MLOK sling attachment to the bottom rear off the stock rail and took pics as I went;

Need to widen the hole on the MLOK mount for an M6(?) screw to screw into the female hole already there. Just used a drill with a larger size bit.

Looks good! I bet you will feel a difference when you are at the ready vs having it at the end of the stock.

Only question that I have is, are you left handed? The front sling mount should be on the opposite side of your favored side, so the sling isn't moving over the barrel and also lends to better leverage.

Yeah southpaw here. I kind of like it because the ammo counter is visible to me when using it without having to look at it :)

Also I found these single-point MLOK adapters; https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MLOK-1-25-QD ... 2668651826

Going to try and get one and it will replace the bottom one, should look a lot better.

Now that I know you are a leftie that makes sense.

Its a shame that they dont have kit to chose which side the ammo counter is on, I would like my counter facing the side facing me.

I suppose that QD connector would work fine.

Still waiting on that connector but I'll post some pics with it on. I also got a 3/5 slot picatinny rail attachment to add to the right side of the barrel shroud to mount my fake peq box (just red laser and battery box) for it.

Added the PEQ box on a picatinny rail mount on the other side. Just a battery box with a red dot laser.

Ended up switching the mlok qd mounts about a bit;
https://i.imgur.com/qJFgb8k.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/F5uFOcC.jpg


My shoulder stock goes back into the rifle rather easily now which is annoying - if I open the gun up can I make it more secure? I need it to be fully extended but a few pounds of pressure pushes it back in.

Check the portion under the release button to see if it’s cracked. If its not that, the spring retaining the pin for the stock could be weak or the hole in the stock might have been rounded out with use.

I have a similar problem but I think its a crack that
I accidentally made in the shroud once, and Im going to fix it with body shop grade epoxy.

Thanks. Planning to do a bunch of minor upgrades for airsoft play soon so I'll do everything when I have the gun open at the same time.

If you can buy an extra mag bottom cover, and cut a mag sized hole in the bottom where the mag will go you will be able to use the longer Thompson mags and you can double your capacity if you use high caps, or you can use the 110 round midcaps. It will make winding/reloading easier. It will also put less of a strain on the bases tension/spring that keeps it attached to the gun, and it wont be as prone to falling off after a lot of releods kills the tension.

I've got 5 of the standard mags for it at the moment - are they midcaps?

Anywhere you can actually get a spare cap for the bottom? because like you say to make reloading BBs easier. are there no mags that fit which have that string you pull a couple times to reload it? how much further out do the higher cap mags stick? I didn't even know you could get larger ones - https://www.bespokeairsoft.co.uk/snow-w ... azine-sw11 these are the ones I have. I gotta admit though having to wind them up is a pain in the ass, when I'm target shooting in the back yard I sometimes just leave the cap off and leave my finger on the cog and wind it *as i'm firing* so there's a constant stream.

Why can the mags not just like, auto-load themselves? I don't know anything about airsoft mags but it just seems like they surely could be designed in such a way that you just fill them up and blast away until they are empty. The winding cog was kind of a surprise when I first got it.

The easiest way to know if you have a hicap or midcap is if you have to load the magazine with a speedloader, or by forcing the bb in the mag, its a midcap, if you pour the bbs in and have to wind a wheel or pull a line to load the mag, its a high cap. With a midcap, you can keep firing shots until the bbs fully run out, hicaps will feed about 30-50 shots and the run out but the tou need to wind it up again to feed more bbs. Typically, more experienced players end up prefering midcaps because its somewhat annoying to ba e to spend the time to wind the wheel up to shoot again in the middle of a firefight. Hicaps also tend to rattle and can give your position away or just be annoyong to hear.

When use my M4 or my SCAR MK16, I use 6 midcaps and one highcap because the hicap I carry is the G&G 450 round hicap, and when it is loaded and fully wound, one can shoot about 150 or so shots before it needs to wind again; I use this mag for when I am suppressing with three round burst, so I dont burn all of my ammo at one time, and it keeps my fire discipline strong by not allowing myself to mag dump all the time.

My main gun is a M110 Semi Automatic Sniper Rifle so shooting burst or full auto these days is kind of a rare thing for me.

As far as magazines for the pulse rifle go, the are just Thompson magazines; the Pulse rifle comes with a replica of the 20 round magazine, 30 round replicas come in 400 round hicaps and 110 or 60 round midcaps , you can probably find pictures of 20 and 30 round mags jext to each other through a Google search but the 30 rounds stick out about an inch or so further than the mag bases lowest point, its not that bad.

Evike sells the mag bases https://www.evike.com/products/45801/ .

Are you winding the mag till the wheel starts to click? You shouldn't have to wind it constantly while firing

I can feel a click as soon as I start winding it. I really need to see an exploded/transparent view of these mags so I can see exactly what is going on when the winding happens.

Is there any way to modify the mags (I have 5 of them now) to use a pull-string or something? taking the cap off (or rather leaving it off) for airsoft play is just ... lame, really.

They will click alittle when winding but if you keep winding the click will get noticeably louder, thats when you stop. It may take a while to get to the louder click but you will hear it.
Im not sure if you can get the flash mags for the thompson but these work fine when wound correctly.
Give it a try!

Also contact noble for mag base adapters so the mag an cap are connected together, well worth the purchase! Can also cut a slot in the bottom of the cap for winding the mag without removing it!

What I mean is once the mag is fully 'wound' it's fine shooting, but once the magazine itself (even with winding) starts getting below 50% capacity, it jsut seems to shoot as fast and and constantly spinning the mag wheel while on full auto gives a huge speed boost, I was hoping to basically have that but without the thing I do.

There are no flashmags available for the Thompsons.

Speaking of those mag bases, does anybody know where to find those? I've looked all over and only found a 3d printable version but sadly I don't have a 3d printer.

Alright, thanks! I need to find those "mag upgrades" where you can attach the base to the magazine sometime. I heard someone on here sells them.

Yeah what I mean is, do you fix the magazines to these so I would need 5x for each mag? I am not sure how I would fit them in my battlebelt, but they look good.
