SR Update - February 2019
One-year anniversary update! Working on a new M-Trigger design for standard V2 gearboxes and a new custom gun project using many 3D printed parts.
P90 & F2000 M-Trigger
Customers have been loving upgrading their P90 or F2000 with an M-Trigger. So far I've had orders from 13 different countries! I've been getting great feedback and look forward to helping more airsofters in the second year of Shadow Regime Designs.
I've been starting a new project to try and incorporate the design goals of the P90 & F2000 M-Trigger into a standard V2 gearbox: a drop-in microswitch trigger system that shortens the trigger pull. Some challenges of this project are the limited space and small pieces required to fit inside a V2 gearbox, and achieving a short enough trigger pull that plays nicely with the original cut off lever. Preliminary design works, but there is room for improvement.
Custom Gun Project
Last November, I bought a boneyard Tippmann Commando AEG for $50. The problem? Broken tappet plate and missing battery connector. So with a few dollars and time, I had a new AEG to start upgrading. This budget AEG is actually surprisingly good quality. I'll have a full review up soon going over externals and internals.
Since this gun is not compatile with many aftermarket upgrades, this is a great opportunity to show how 3D printing can be used to create custom airsoft parts.
So far, I've made a custom outer barrel, rail, foregrip, stock adapter, and dust cover. I'll do a full write-up on these custom parts as well in a later article. This gun will also be the base for designing and testing the new V2 M-Trigger.
Thanks for reading and check back soon for more updates!
