OICW

Hey I took a look aroun and as far as I know no-one has suggested this so far; how about a custom-made XM-29 OICW for airsoft? It would be interesting to make, and I think possible (though I could be totally wrong here.)

What you'd need is:

1) A carbine of the apropriate size (maybe a TM G36c?) This would be the lower assault rifle/carbine used in the system.

2) some sort of grenade system, if there is a gas/Co2 semi-auto shotgun out there it would be perfect. Shotshells would work best regardless, M203s are too big, nor can you fire more than one shot out of them.

3) http://www.unconventional-airsoft.co...w/guncamscope/ for the OICW's hi-tech scope... I'm sure you can make the camera system smaller if you try. In fact I'm pretty sure I saw a post where somone (maybe the guy from Unconventional Airsoft) was trying to make a new version of the Camera/Scope system.

If you can get those three things and figure out a way to use them all together in a OICW style shell... well you'd have a unique gun to say the least.

Some problems I can forsee:
1) Weight... this would be a heavy mutha.
2)the outer shell, it would be dificult to shape a OICW frame for the guns.
3)the grenade system. I don't know if there is a semi-auto GBB shotgun out there, or any kind of semi-auto spread weapon. I suppose alternativly it could launch something like little nerf foam balls, though I have no clue how to make THAT semi-auto either.
4) the trigger system... I have no flipping clue how to make it so one trigger operates both guns.

Just a suggestion, feel free to tear it apart.

well my old school GBB used a hammer to hit a pin that lets it release a small burst of gas in order to propel the BB. You could look into modding a GBB mag to release more gas or figure out how to take the CO2 guns' gas operation system and make it work as a semi auto propellent for the Nerf balls.

I have no experience with these ideas so...good luck..

I'm pretty sure that's how most GBBs work, the catch in this case is that if you wanted to make this you'd need a hell of alot more gas to propell either one big, soft projecile or a shotgun blast of bbs.the catch really is magazine feed. You'd need to make a custom mag for the nerf balls (if you chose that projectile) plus the gas. It's simpler just to have a shotshel in there and fine a way to fire it semi-auto. Hell maybe you could make a second AEG on to that uses a cross between a spring shotgun system (like the TM M3 series for example) but with a motor to drive the air piston.

I don't know... something to look into

I think you would have better realism if you used a P90 or Steyr AUG
but the only problem with those is again the size, you have to add the grenade launcher, and the scope, not to mention the price of the scope alone.

Noone said it would be cheap or easy hell I'm just throwing this out here as an Idea to see if it can be done, doesn't mean I'm gonna try and build it. I certainly don't have the money to make one right now... though I may try later in life when I have more money.

Please, tell me how the hell you see either a G36, AUG or P90 in the OICW. Maybe take a look at the gun again.
http://www.popularmechanics.com/scie...e/1281176.html

Neither of those look anything like the OICW and the end product would look like shit. If you're going to do something, dont do it half-assed. It would need to be made from scratch. The only current existing airsoft parts that could be used is maybe the grip and magazines from an M4 and the selector switch from a G36.

the front handguard looks a bit like a G36's but you're right , you'd have to do a lot of machining to get it done

you could make an AICW with an AUG.
For the GL, I think the 27mm mini moscarts would be best, if you could make an appropriate launcher.

Yeah , that'd be a bit easier , very expensive , though.

again, let's assume cost isn't an issue. The AICW would be easier to make but doesn't have quite the same kick-ass look IMO. I sugested a G36c for the similarity in design to the assault rifle section of the OICW system. Another Idea would to be to canibalize a M4A1 and attempt to make it resemble the lower section of the OICW... but I imagine that would be as much of a pain.

yeah, just looking at the rifle subsection, it looks like it takes armalite mags. You could probably build up around a CQB-R or something, take the flashider from a G36/XM8 and the foregrip form an XM8. If you want an outside power source for the GL (not in the shells), I think you could rip apart an M1100 (that's the semi auto shell ejecting one, right?) and mod it to take magazines, though personally, I would expect self containted shells ala 40mm, 27mm moscart/tanaka 1897 shells would work better (also simpler/smaller mechanism).

i see a verry heavly moded m4 for the lower section. and unfortunatly i think the gl would have to be compleetly custom built. although i agree 27 mm moscart shells would be best for the gl. or you could find a way to mod real i would have to say .50 bmg shell maby cut to a shorter length to accepr some kind of foam projectile somthing like this im thinking it defenatly would not be easy, although would be cool as hell.

Not a bad Idea... but it would be difficult to do.

If it has any resemblence to anything its going to be a g36 with a Stanmag well. But yes it would be a frakenstein of AEGs, however id thing this would have to be all custom work, what exactly compelled you to this, are you a fan of the OICW project, or do you think itd be interesting, we always need more innovators in the forums.
