PostSubject: BE SL9-Revamp Ideas.   Thu Jan 03, 2008 2:58 pm

Wandering around the internet today, I stumbled across the BE (Both Elephant) SL9. It's apparently available with a Plastic or metal gearbox, and comes in at around $100 USD.

Now I know that BE isn't exactly what we might call a "High Quality Airsoft Gun Company," but an SL9 for $100 or less? You can't really beat that price...

So... If I were to buy this, I'd probably use it until it died on the inside, and then replace the guts with... Maybe some Echo1 or CA parts (or G&G, if they're available)... But I could use a little help as to starting.

Apparently it's based on the BE XM-8, so mags are an issue. Perhaps the $10 Echo 1 Magwell replacement from ASGI could remedy this?

Yeah, I know, I should just get something else... But I love the way the SL9 looks, and I don't want to cough up $300+ for a CA one... at least not right now...

CA makes a SL9 model????? Personally having owned one of their G36k's the externals arent very good quality at all. i had plastic parts break after 2 weeks of use. So you may want to rethink this.

Hm, I might just put this on my list. It looks like my L96 sniper had a lovechild with a G36. Shorty's idea of replacing the outer barrel with a silencer sounds even better since I could use my gemtec blackside. I'm just impressed with the styling of it, so I might just get this instead of some gas guns I was thinking about. As far as it being BE, I've heard both good and bad so it might be a bit of a gamble, but if your thinking of gutting it anyway when it fails then I would say go for it since 100 isnt bad at all.

My bad, CA makes an SL8.

the SL8 (ironically) is Heckler and Koch's newer design. But the SL8 comes stock with a red dot carry handle thing, and has a vented fore-grip.
