Awesome stuff. I want to do the same. You know, as things progress, a detailed, step by step guide on modding the Denix would be very valuable. I don't know that I can do all you did, but I have done about a third already.:thumbsup
Yeah, I successfully added some aluminum sheet to close the gap between my upper and lower halves. Still really want to completely obscure that attaching screw, but I'd still like the ability to take it apart. May have to lose that though.
I got rid of the screw and made the lip more like the real Mauser and plan to attach the receivers by adding a small screw hole and nut under the slide. To disassemble, you would hold back the slide to unscrew the screw.
The nut can be epoxied to the inside of the Mag Well and a large washer (with small hole) can be shaped and epoxied to the under side of the upper receiver.
I have a question. I just received my wood gripped Denix and I love it. It seems to be oiled. Do you use rubbing alcohol to remove the oil to seal or repaint it? It seems to be a graphite colour? Is that finish what everyone else has? And where can I get the correct screw and nut for the grips?
After you finish with all the mods what are you going to use to paint/seal your Denix kpax?
