I finally get around to changing out my RA mech on my 130 with an Omer MB.
It turned out to be an interesting experience. It was by no means as simple as I had thought it was going to be. Thankfully it all worked out nicely. While in the process I also added a new line release being that the alligator clip on the Omer left much to be desired.

Here are some of the pics I took in the process.

Nice!!! I like the idea for the line release. Will keep that one in mind for future mod's. :D :D :D

My C4 also has a similar type of line release, also uses the spear to keep it in place.

Hey, is that silver section the center part of a MB barrel? I have an extra MB gun that I'm not using...


Also, where'd you pick up the Valentin release? I know Hanapaa had some, but haven't seen them anywhere else.
