My friend TC posted this photo of his display. It looks clean and professional. What you are looking at is a DIY weapon display he made. It is just peg board that he painted silver. Fooled me. I thought it was metal sheets with holes. And to top it all off, those are not guns. They are airsoft. Look closely at the magazines.

Who cares? It is a fantastic display of his collection. Good job TC, good job.

    I like those retro builds.

    • Twilight sparkle

      Xm 177 ftw

  • datimes

    I hope that is the interior of the gun safe.

    • Havok

      Airsoft….

      • Twilight sparkle

        There’s a lot of people on here that don’t read the article, they just look at the pretty pictures… half the time I’m that person…

        • FOC Ewe

          There really hasn’t been much reading necessary for recent articles.

        • mrsatyre

          I’d respond to your post, but I haven’t read it.

        • BraveNewWhirled

          Folks are more honest around here…

    • Klaus

      More like a toy box. Remember when kids had toy boxes to put there toys in

      • datimes

        I had one!

  • JT303

    What optic is that on the XM177? I’ve seen it somewhere once before, I think. Looks kinda weird.

    • Mike N.

      It’s called a Singlepoint. Predecessor to the modern red dot sights.

    • Friend

      You know where you saw it?

      A) You’re a nerd and you saw it in son tay raid pictures on ARFCOM.

      Or

      B) You’re a nerd and you saw it on some guns in Star Wars.

      🙂

      I’m a nerd.

      • Anonymoose

        Or I saw Ian use it in an InrangeTV video.

  • alex archuleta

    Question,
    Are there any airsoft products that are solid enough to carry over to real firearms? I was looking at some rail scales.
    But what about airsoft rails, mounts for keymod Mlok and picitanny? Can any of them be put on a real AR with as much confidence as say magpul, LaRue etc? Thanks!

    • USMC03Vet

      Most likely no because those types of products are made with poor metals and treatment to cut costs.

    • Nicholas C

      It depends on the item. Many will say no because typically they are made of lesser grade materials. Some companies do make legit stuff. Like CNC using aircraft grade aluminum.

      • alex archuleta

        Thanks for the answer gents.
        Realizing that many products are made of lessor materials and overall craftsmanship as 03vet and Nicholas advised, my question is if anyone does know the name of any airsoft companies that do make “legit” stuff out of quality materials?

    • Cymond

      I wouldn’t trust my life to airsoft stuff, but it’s cheap & some of it is fine for plinking guns. I have an airsoftair clone of the SOPMOD stock, and it works fine so far. I don’t think it will ever fail on me, but I’m not hard on gear or planning to go to war. I also have an airsoft grade copy of the Strike Industries angled foregrip. Again, it’s probably fine, and it’s not even a crucial piece.

      Cheap gear might not be as good, but it’s an easy way to experiment with different options. If I like it and the cheap version isn’t good enough, *then* I’ll shell out for the real deal.

      • alex archuleta

        Thanks for the comment! On my POF Renegade + I have trijicon, surefire, Steiner, strike industries, Ergo but I’ve been looking into getting some rail scales. For a complete set that I want it’s gonna be like over $200!
        Then I saw that I can either buy some airsoft knock offs (since it’s a non critical piece of gear)
        Or I can just buy some plain G10 bars off of EBay then trim and cut them myself and make my own rail scales for my entire gun for about the price I’d pay for like 1 complete Rail Scale, thoughts?

  • JSIII

    Bottom 3 guns make me feel like I just walked into a early 90’s action film.

    • gunsandrockets

      Hah! I saw that picture and before the airsoft punchline hit, what came to my mind was the gun-room scene from the opening moments of the crappy 1985 film “Commando”.

      • USMC03Vet

        Sir, Commando is a classic action movie. It’s is not crap, but rather is pure unadulterated 80’s filmography and you should probably cool off, Bennett…..

        • gunsandrockets

          Yah, who could forget that classic obvious-dummy-falling-from-the-wheel-well scene, as our hero leaps 50 feet down to the ground from an airborne jetliner doing 200 mph?

          • Phil Ward

            So many good one liners tho
            “You know when I said I’d kill you last?”
            “… yes?”
            “I Liiiiiied!”

            Not to mention trimming the rose bushes with a belt fed!

          • gunsandrockets

            Oh God, that M60…

            I even made a joke to my friend that stuck about that “Commando” M60. I called it the negative entropy machine-gun belt, because it got longer the more it was fired.

            Now that was some fine fine Hollywood editing and story continuity!

          • The Brigadier

            I actually paid to see that movie. Arnold in the back yard mowing down with his M60 dozens of troops that waited to be hit instead of mowing him down with their expensive assault rifles. I was very POed after I walked out of the theater. I should have waited for it come out on VHS. It was probably Arnold’s worst movie.

  • USMC03Vet

    I have a custom POG champ display to get them Honies in the mood. This guy needs a fog machine and some lasers to make it legit.

  • Friend

    I want the Mk.12. Also the SR15. But also the Mk.12. Did I mention I really want that Mk.12?

    Anyone want to loan me a Mk.12?

    • Anonymoose

      Not for the 2k Daniel Defense wants for their Mk12, but you could get a BCM upper for under $1000.

      • 22winmag

        My $650 Mk. 12 tribute: Palmetto 1/7 .223 Wylde 18 inch 416R rifle-gas keymod upper- Gogun supercomp- LuthAR rifle stock/delton rifle buffer. Runs Magpul D60s and green tip thru 75gr HPs very well.

  • Dickie

    Was gunna say peg board not strong enuff for all that. But its airsoft

    • Blake

      I was gonna ask why some people felt it necessary to own so many AR-15s (c’mon, you gotta have a good bolt-action & a 22LR, not to mention shotguns…).

      But then I guess with airsoft the point is to be able to host your own party.

      I wonder how many real guns he could’ve gotten for what he spent on all these…
      (at least he didn’t put a bipod on any of them, that’s just silly)

      • Nashvone

        It’s an addiction that doesn’t have a 12-step program.

      • Twilight sparkle

        What’s wrong with having multiple ar-15s?

        • Dietrich

          Nothing wrong as long as you have at least one battle rifle of the FN/FAL or G3 variety. That’s my definition of diversity.

    • ThatOneGuy

      I’ve got a similar pegboard for display, and it’s more than strong enough for everything I’ve tried on it (real firearms).

  • Blake
  • 22winmag

    Rubberized hooks, real timber and LED lighting would make an even better display.

    Let’s do it!

  • Martin Morinigo

    This is my modest collection and DIY display rack & storage.
    It’s retail store slatwall & pegs inside a previously unused closet.

      I wished I had a picture of the one I had as a kid – now everything sits in a vault.

      • Dingo1971

        I’d like a large vault style safe, but it’s not in either the budget nor the space allowance. Besides, I like the look of this setup, and I have plenty of storage for all of my firearms and accoutrements.

  • jcitizen

    I used to have a heck of a peg board display rack – had to mount it to the studs in the wall, and heavy duty bolts, so it would take all the weight. No AR 15s, but I did have one AR-180 in the mix.
