My interest in IP Blasters has been renewed lately. More from less, thats the goal here. I want to say a BIG thanks to OrangeModWorks for making the awesome new kits they offer---seeing them also contributed to my rekindled interest in the Recon. Thanks Guys!
Ok, so I got some goodies today-----my Stage1 kit, and a clear Recon :mrgreen:
I am making this write-up to show you how to take your Recon a step further---so I will assume you have taken your A/R out, and improved your plunger seal. Its not a bad idea to pad+reinforce the back of the PT also. I would have installed a L/R, but it's only like 18 days until I get my stage2 kit from OrangeModWorks. Anywho, open up your Recon----remove all your internals:
Throw away the dart tooth----from here on we are firing stefans! Grab a segment of PETG, and wrap with E-tape as shown:
Install your wrapped PETG into the Recons barrel guide/stub as shown.......
Secure with Hotglue at the front AND back. You want the PETG to stay put!
Take a 1" stub of 17/32 brass--- with some strategic sanding to the ID of the Recons bolt it will slid in. The key is to sand the ID so the brass stub is nice and snug. Also a key----sand the top and sides so your PETG can slide freely without binding. Your stub should look like this:
When positioned, secure the stub with superglue. Your finished breech....
This is an adapted version of the breech in my "IronHide" LS......its cheap, easy, and now your Recon fires stefans! Back to the mod......
Install the OrangeModWorks parts.....catch+spring, Plunger spring, and back plate. Be sure your back plate is seated correctly, like so......
For posterity----OMW spring next to a RFSG spring....
Super sweet Overview and firing vid!
