Convert a G4-A2 Blazing Hog into a G4-A5 DMR...

Postby charbrec » Sat Sep 29, 2012 10:54 pm

So I purchased a Blazing Hog a few months ago, and it's a great gun. But I've been seriously thinking about buying a DMR or Sniper lately, and was curious to see how hard it would be to convert my G4-A2 into a dmr via an upper-receiver swap. I've been looking at all the other G4's, and was looking at what rail/outer barrel/inner barrel they where running, trying to determine how much it would cost. I was thinking about essentially building the upper receiver for the G4-A5 DMR, and was curious if anybody knew exactly what parts go into it? Thanks in advance, i'm still an Airsoft noob.

Well, if you expect to get better performance from just switching the upper receivers and barrels, you've got it wrong. A G4 DMR doesn't have a significant range or accuracy advantage over the other G4s because they're all the same gun inside. A true DMR takes time and money to build to actually outperform everyone else's guns or else you just have a long and heavy gun that shoots the same as someone's compact and light gun.

But if you want to have it anyway, you would need a G&G plastic upper receiver and whatever rail system the A5 has.
