    Feb 16, 2009, 12:24 AM - Sci-fire Hyperfirm MG-15 Project... #1

    Well, this project has just become a reality. Thanks to Art for supplying the scopes and Marcelo for supplying the MG-15, we are now in production of the hyperfirm MG-15s. Take a look at the progress and final assembled blaster. We still need to attach the braided cables and insert the laser cut lenses for the scopes but we are very proud of this weapon.





    The first hyperfirm rubber casting of the MG-15 base weapon. The writing on the cannister is not there on the official production models. We laser etched the cannister for our friend Marcelo for allowing us to take over this project.








    The waterjet armatures for the front scope. We had to waterjet armatures from aluminum to embed into the front scope to keep the mounting rigid. We machined, threaded and welded each steel riser for the front scope to maintain the proper screen accurate look of the blaster.

    I've never really been a big fan of the MG-15 but now I see it with scope mounted, it looks awesome. I might have to add this to my Hyperfirm collection. As always, great work John & Lewis.

    Its great to finally see this assembled and ready for production, the MG-15 has a lot of oddly distinctive qualities particularly those nifty scopes that make it stand out from its more recognizable siblings the MG-34 and 42.

    The guys really came through on getting this done and the resulting quality and detail speak for themselves.
