does anyone know if the magpul UBR stock (listed here: http://www.airsoftgi...roducts_id=5646
) will mount to the SR12 ok without modification? Sorry if someone already tried this, i skimmed through the pages to see if it was mentioned but i didnt see. Its possible i may have missed it, so sorry if i did!
"Without modification"... no, but the mods are not insurmountable. I have the UBR to put on my SR10 (same body as SR12) and have mapped out and test fit all the mods needed:
1) The separate rear spacer plate needs to be beveled on the back side so the wires do not get pinched on the sharp edge on the bottom of the "U" cut out on this plate.
2) The metal body's tail stock needs to be cut short. About 20mm long works well. This is the biggest mod needed.
3) Adapt the wire set to fit (with selected battery) in the buffer tube.
That's it. The good news is the buffer tube fits over the tail piece "as is" in that the inside diameter of the buffer tube is good... no milling/ dremeling/ or sanding needed, just cut the KWA body's tail stock down in length as stated.
Save your wire set as you WILL need to keep your in line fuse holder, if you plan to use a fuse. It is small enough to fit in the buffer tube beside a VERY few lipos.
If, on the other hand you've resigned yourself to using a battery that fills up the buffer tube (max 29mm x 152mm + space for wires), then I will GLADLY take the fuse holder wire set off your hands!
