Just to say, if you want to build a DL-44 from the classic trilogy ALL airsoft Mausers are wrong. They all represent a Mauser 712 automatic firing gun and not the C96. There are some major differences.

As the most wrote before converting a Denix or the FM C96 would be the better choice

Have a look at my Star Wars builds thread if you like. All my DL-44 are Denix-based due to the costs of a FM replica or a (even more expensive but screen accurate) MGC replica.

I am not in a position to voice an opinion on "the best" option, but I can say that I have one of chubsANDdoggers blasters and it is absolutely a magnificent piece (and he is a great guy and an excellent communicator)!

I guess it all depends on what you want to accomplish and only you can answer that. IMHO that looks nothing like a Denix but then again I wouldn’t be cross shopping against that if I was looking for a replica.

An alternative would be this airsoft model from evike. At $250, it’s not $20 cheap but not also $500-$900 for a hobby / enthusiast grade replica and has the advantage of being functional if that’s your thing.
With that price, then I would hunt for a DENIX On E-Bay like I did! I was able to snag one for $50.00 with free shipping.
And what's REALLY Nice about mine, is that there is NO "DENIX" Diamond on the left side of the gun. The ONLY Markings, are the "M96" on the right side, and the Sight slide markings. It's a VERY Clean replica and I KNOW that whatever Conversion Kit I go with it will look Awesome! :)

The actual Denix has no "diamond" anymore. The have reworked the whole thing, and yes, it's much cleaner than the older version. It's available with plastic or wood grips.

Yep! That's what I have is the Wood Grips version. I was VERY Surprised to find it at the price I did?!
Most are selling for about $ 80.00 or more PLUS Shipping! I got mine for $ 50.00 with free shipping!

I LOVE the weight of this piece. It just FEELS Right! I can't WAIT to get the Conversion Kit to finish this! :D

These are highly worthy.

If you're new to the blaster game, any that are offered today are constructed like the original with a cross bar and a dovetailed steel cradle. That feels amazing to handle and will feel very authentic.

(the bull barrel is up for debate, I personally think the original was threaded onto a chopped barrel, but most today use the sleeve method. Todd's C. does the threaded barrel. Field Marshall/BlasterFactory has a thinner scope cradle I think, which is a hair more accurate. Splitting hairs though)

Hey y'all, dumb questions. On the Field Marshall kits from Blaster Factory / War Machine Paintball, the pictures for the Basic Denix unpainted does not have all the greeblies showing, but the painted version does. Do the basic unpainted kits come with all the parts or do you have to buy them separately? Do the basic kits come with a Denix? I assume the Denix Mauser is not included, but I wanted to verify :D
