i finally bought my PSA M4 upper with the 7" handguard for fathers day and now i want to put a CASV clone.

ive read all of the threads on why you shouldnt put airsoft stuff on a real gun but i want to know if this CASV clone can hold up to the recoil?

I don't know but why? if money is the issue, there are plenty of non airsoft stuff that is fairly inexpensive.

its a money issue.

but can it hold up to the recoil?

i have it installed on my .22LR L85 (Marlin 795). im planning to do a test fit.

that's why those items are stated specifically for "AIRSOFT". Just like the Magpul UBR stock clone, Magpul warns not to use it on a real gun, will probably break and cause injuries.

Can it stand up to the recoil? Only way to find out is to test it. Personally, if money is an issue, I would rather hold off and save enough to buy the real thing, cause if the airsoft stuff does not hold up, you'll just end up spending more down the road.

I agree that it's not worth losing money on if you're wrong, especially if money is tight.

thanks.

ill be using iron sights so i dont think the recoil would be an issue

to further clarify my question. im referring to see if the CASV clone can hold up as a "handguard" to the 5.56 recoil.

i mean if a MOE plastic handguard can stand up to a 5.56 recoil, why wouldnt this?

yea ill test it out. if it doesnt, ill put it back on my .22.

if i can find a used one at $150 ill be happy to pay that.
