    Feb 22, 2013, 8:35 AM - Jay851's 2012 lawgiver build #1

    hi all
    With all the great lawgiver projects coming to life on here, i have decided to have a crack at one myself.
    i am building it around a WE gen 4 glock 18c airsoft pistol, which although is not screen accurate due to the fire selector, the full auto option was a must.
    hopefully all the parts will be made from aluminium and i have started on the fron magwell area, which im happy with at the moment. i still have some finishing bits to do on it, and i have machined some rails on the inside so it slides straight on to the glock rail.
    i must say with all the great project i have seen on here from some very talented people, it is very inspirational to a prop building noob like me.
    keep up the great work guys and girls.

    thanks guys.
    its going to get a lot harder trying to secure all the rear parts as there is next to nowhere on the glock to mount anything. i may have to run a steel strut from the front block along the top of the slide, to the rear of the gun. will keep updating.

    on my build I've put an inverted U shape bracket at the rear that you attach the grip saddle to to keep it all in place...if that makes any sense

    I did originally just pop a couple of small screws in the bottom half of the glock but ended up breaking the trigger mechanism by drilling through it :/ oops

    oh and dunno if you're already planning for it but in case you're not :- that fire selector switch will have to come off or you'll have some serious problems fitting it into the shrouds

    What are you planning to do with the fire selector (since the overlays usually fit flush with the slide there)? Sand it down? Replace it with a slotted screw? Remove it completely?
    I have a G18 airsoft as well so I have to decide what I'm going to do when I eventually get my lawgiver kit.
    I'm leaning towards just removing it (if I can do it without breaking it). From looking at the workings and from what I've heard anecdotally, removing it completely will just leave the gun permanently on full-auto. Which is fine by me.

    yes im pretty sure you are right, that it will be full auto only if the selector is removed.thats fine with me too but ideally i would like it selectable, so i will try and reduce the selector in size to blend it in with the slide, and maybe have a slot in it.

    Nice, can't wait to see more progress, what's the weight like?

    cheers.
    it feels a bit weighty at the moment but should be able to remove more material to lighten it up.

    You may have to be careful of how much weight you add to the slide. Due to the fact that they are airsoft guns rather than actual firearms, sometimes they're very sensitive to the weight on the slide. Too much and it won't cycle. At the same time, you may want to add a little bit of weight to slow down the cyclic rate. The rate on a normal 18C is absolutely insane and WAY outside of what it looked like on the movie.

    One of the curious parts of the Lawgiver from the movie was how the shrouds interacted with the slide. I might have to watch it again to specifically observe that. I wonder if anyone has any pictures.

    i dont think it should add too much weight to the slide as im pretty sure it is only the rear part that moves and this will be made from aluminium, but the rof is a blur and could do with slowing up a bit. have managed to make the front shroud from billet aluminium which was a pain, and i think i may have to trim about 4mm off the bottom as it is sitting a bit high.

    I'm wondering if you could use the select-fire switch as an anchoring point for the pieces you're planning on attaching to the slide. Obviously, that switch is attached to a mechanism inside the slide, so it could potentially be used as an attachment point. The switch will probably have to be modified anyway given that it would get in the way.

    thanks guys.

    regarding the slide...
    yes mate im thinking the same aswell. im hoping to machine the whole slide part in one piece, and having the selector holding one side and a screw in the back, as there is a solid part on the back of the g18c slide to put a small thread in.

    got a bit more done, the main body. had to make two cut outs at the front to get the front shroud on, but these should be covered with the other parts. still have to add a strut on the main body to run above the slide to support the rear shroud.
