    After getting my 995 and shooting it, the issue with the flush mount magazine, while nothing major, became apparent whenever I let friends shoot the gun. Inevitably they'd fail to seat the magazine. Here's the solution I came up with from Home Depot. They've held in place through two subsequent range sessions, although the black paint scratches off easily from the smooth plastic finish on the furniture sliders.

    Are Those Stick Ons??? (yes, I flipped the pic, reduced glare :rofl:)

    Once you graduate from that (if ever) try LongShot ;)

    http://longshotmanufacturing.com/products/hi-point-magazine-bumpers

    $20 for 4 bumpers, but permanent installation. Looks cool, too!
    Try them for rails and accessories, I have 3 different product sets,
    all are flawless works of Art! :eek:

    Thanks for cleaning up the photo. I posted in a hurry this morning before a kids' basketball game.

    I looked at Long Shot and nothing against. They look really good and I may indeed add at some point.

    My 995 was a budget fun gun, so I was just trying to keep my cost down.

    I bought the gun with the folding fore grip and immediately ordered two mags + the two mags & buttstock holder. That left $100 in my play fund, so I started bargain shopping after that.

    $25 red dot from Amazon, a $10 low profile riser so red dot would clear rear sight assembly and the rest went towards ammo. Then I got lucky and found a Gamo air rifle laser at a local liquidation store for $9. Figured what the heck, if it won't hold zero I'll throw it on a paintball gun for fun.

    Well it has held up through 300 rounds. (after setting it up, I dripped a drop of locktite and allowed it to seep into the screw threads on the adjustment screws). That left my desire for mag bumpers and I just looked around the hardware store to see what I might could modify. Again, budget minded, I walked out for $5.

    I know none are serious, quality accessories, but the carbine has all the "Black Ops" video game accessories on it and that got my teenager to the range with me and enjoying shooting...

    If they don't hold up, I'll more than likely definitely pick up a set of the Long Shots

    PS:

    :welcome:burpgun!!!

    I like your solution, I make a lot of my own stuff too.
    The Carbines are not a real "high recoil" gun, and a lot
    of the airsoft and paintball accessories hold up well.

    I have a few of the cheaper red/green dot sights, not listed
    as airsoft, but I'm hoping they hold up to the smaller caliber
    rifles and carbines I am going to use them on. We shall see :D

    We make bumpers for the 9mm carbine magazines. They work really well, too.
     
  6. I cant believe I spent the last 40 min looking for the missing "Everbilt" logo hidden beneath the flash in burpgun's photo :rolleyes:

    undeRGRound has always been nothing but nice to me ever since I started frequenting these forum's. Why couldn't I just leave thing's alone and move onto something more important?

    What's wrong with me?
    It's official... I HAVE NO LIFE!!!
    :wah:

    I'm hoping you are my Rich Uncle, "The Donald"??? </mach-0 mel> :D


    Wait a bit, Trump-Y... when the jokes begin, it gets really FUN!
    But I will not question your sexuality like m00nZ does, mostly
    because I do not question my OWN, (like m00nZ does :rofl:)

    I'm looking at your new full length rail for my 4595/DRUM project,
    J&M!!! I mean "LongShot" ;) It is going to be BAD-A$$!
    I oughta call it "PROJECT HEAVY METAL"
    But I doubt it will be that heavy, add maybe 2# fully loaded?
    Around 29 rounds of 45 ACP, (1.33#, 230gr hardball)
    almost a pound for the drum, a few oz. for the rail... :D

    Nah,...it won't be too heavy. Quite honestly though, my personal preference would be to use our 21" Adapter Rail and then only add short M-LOK rails where I might need them, That would give me 21" of usable location area but at a total weight of around 6 or 7 oz. A full 21" long picatinny rail is gonna weigh about 11oz or more and most of the rail area won't even get used unless I were to place 5 or 6 accessorries along its entire length. And THEN it would start to get pretty heavy.

    COOL, I'm looking at an IR Optic
    (illuminated Reticle that still works w/o batts)
    and flip-ups or 45* BUIS... So I will need 2 sections
    of rail, long in back, short in front! This is gonna ROCK!

    FWIW - permanent marker is a better way to make these black than paint.

    I use that on certain things, and it works well!
    Are you saying on entire aluminum rails? :eek: :D

    Sorry wasn't clear. Was referring to the tan sliders I made into bumpers. Black paint flaked off over course of 3 range sessions, so I went back over with permanent marker.
