Default 30 min DIY Glock, many of video

I don't know how many people are following, but I did a bunch of builds using various kits to make of Glock slide compatible frame from scratch and not.

Lately, I was talking a couple of people about building with only front and rear pieces of Marigold Glock kit. At first, I did not like the idea, but actually I see it is not bad idea. The new kit Marigold-3 has it's midsection reduced to minimum. What this means that you can use airsoft frame for a Glock build where airsoft frame does all the mag holding and top steel piece handles all the work with the slide. This speeds the build a lot.

I built a Glock frame while filming. The actual work of building took around 30 min. Is not bad. It does not include time to find all the drill bits on the floor, cauterizing wounds and smoking breaks. I will post more still pictures also re-shoot shooting as it was very dark in basement of shooting range.

Also, it is not first Glock I built so some parts were done on eyeball and I have some jigs that speeds things up. Some parts like dremeling airsoft frame could have done faster as I used that bit to carve aluminum and it was dull.

Guarder frames are popular but they expensive and hard to find. This one, is $13 and many places have it.

Building Glock 17-22-31 in 30 min, using Armus (a-r-m-u-s.com) Marigold-3 kit (http://www.a-r-m-u-s.com/mg3.html), CYMA G18C Airsoft Spring Gun Pistol ZM17 ($13) and Glock 22 LPK ($75)


Three things that you need to get this party started, Glock LPK for G22, Marigold 3 kit and ZM17 airsoft pistol




Overview of MG3 kit, it's a lot like MG1 and 2, except the mag piece is shortened and also the aft piece is shortened to the same length



grinding of rails for the front piece




grinding of rails for the aft piece




grinding locking block that unlocks barrel, to fit into the forepiece




mark and drill holes in the forepiece to hold the locking block




notch the dimple on the middle piece to have the aft piece lining up for welding. Note that for J2, it may require additional fitting.




Setup 3 pieces on the welding jig




Weld three pieces together




mark and cut slots for slide stop




make hole for spring stop





weld the spring stop in




clean the weld joint




prepare airsoft frame by taking off the "slide" and pulling few other parts away




dremel some parts out of airsoft frame. I am showing another frame that was already dremeled out and marking with white-out those areas that need to be milled out. Those areas are pretty obvious once you try to fit the iron frame in, but they look much more visible on camera.




the ejector piece needs to be slightly trimmed with few slashes of a knife, also very obvious where once you try to squeeze it in. This is how your assembly should look like with a mag. At this point it can be fired. Pins and some adhesive would make this more durable.




rough frame sides in prep for glueing




glue the steel frame in the plastic frame



I am showing three things here. One, the pin holes work perfectly to secure locking block and the trigger housing, essentially pulling entire steel frame into the plastic frame. Two. Gen 4 slides don't really work since the dust cover over the spring is just too tight and would not let Gen4 go back. This could be solved by widening/ dremeling it out. Three, the rail actually works with your basic accessories like lasers and flashing lights. This should be a great comfort to people who are into the tacticool doodoo.




slow mag dump

BORIS! You're here!
I love your work, I've been following it all since the shovel AK build.
You are truly a Slav among men high five.

But here, what do you think of this? I'd like the masers opinion.

Looks like great work/interesting.

I like the video for another reason....

One of my neighbors went on and on about banning airsoft as you can swap parts and make a real gun....

I will try to get him to watch this to understand what is required....

How many rounds have been put through any of the guns you have built? I'm curious how the rails and slide stop have held up.

Why bother? Expose him to 80% and watch him pee his pants.

Default "Iron Glock" from ARMUS kit

Just wanted to show what can be created from one of Boris's kits. The photos are of a "Snapdragon" kit built into a G19. All steel, weight 27oz empty, 29.4oz with mag, 44oz with 30rd mag.
The frame is all steel front to back. This steel frame is very easy to build using the available alignment jig.
Ordered the parts from A-R-M-U-S.
