UPDATE: I put a new RIS on today, and I plan to put a full stock on it, with the battery internal. The only problem is, is that the post that the stock attaches too got sawed shorter in order to put the retractable stock on. Hey, you live and you learn, right? I'll need to get a whole new stock post now, and I dont even know if that is possible. It may just be attached to the receiver? Does anyone have any knowledge about this? Also, I did take the handle off. I put a small riser on, and it looks sweet now! Pictures to follow.
Two tone on rifles looks awful. New RIS looks MUCH better, but it's still got a long way to go. Pitch the riser, get a tangodown vfg, longer glass, etc.
If you don't want to change the buffer tube, consider just getting a Crane Stock. That way it'll fit the look of the weapon (AND hold you battery if you get a crane stock battery, or better yet a lipo).
That looks soooo much better man. Now do as ghast said, save some money and buy yourself some nice replica glass. If it was my rifle I would also ditch the dinky little barrel extension too. (and the bipod)
Ohh and fyi.. VFG is vertical front/forward grip. There are some nice clones of the the tangodown Ghast suggested.
Good work on taking peoples advice and making your rifle look better. +1

Unfortunately, I will need to order a new body I will order the noveske body pictured above on monday, and hopefully will have it all together by friday. My new motor should be in by then too.
OH and quick question; with my new gearbox/m150 spring, when I shoot the gun the motor AND battery/wires heats up a LOT. It also has a louder sound, and I can feel it working hard to get off the shot. It does shoot amazingly fast still, but I'm worried. Is this normal for such an upgraded gun? What can I do to help if this is a problem?
