Daewoo DR200 Upgrades
Final fall Richard got here out together with his first product in a line of DR200 upgrades – charging handles for the DR200. See the picture under. On the left is the brand new charging deal with. It’s a mixture of milled metal and MJF 3D printing. You may see how the angle could be very completely different from the unique Korean DR200 charging deal with. These additionally work for the K2 rifle.
Putting in the charging deal with is tremendous straightforward. Simply take away the higher from the decrease, and pull the bolt again so you’ll be able to slide the charging deal with out. Just like a SCAR, solely it’s not ambidextrous. Then you definitely swap in Richard’s charging deal with. Now the charging deal with is simpler to control. Considerably like an AK.
Extra DR200 Upgrades
Now Richard has come out with extra DR200 upgrades. This time an enhanced bolt catch, ambi-mag launch/catch, and 6-position gasoline regulator.
The ambi-mag catch is probably the most tough to swap. For some cause, Daewoo/SNT Motiv determined to take a departure from Eugene Stoner’s design and use a spherical magazine launch button than an oval-shaped one. The magazine button shouldn’t be even threaded, as an alternative, it’s held in place with a really small roll pin. Richard needed to take a 1/16 punch and grind it all the way down to get it to slot in the magazine button. I took a special strategy. I used an Allen wrench that was sufficiently small to slot in the opening. Reduce off the 90º bend and use my Wheeler AR Pivot pin/roll pin instrument to punch the Allen wrench.
You may see the roll pin poking out under the magazine button. Go sluggish so the roll pin doesn’t fall all the best way out.
Subsequent up is the improved bolt catch.
The manufacturing unit bolt catch is just a bolt launch. You might seize the ping pong paddle and pull it out to lock the bolt again however that’s overly difficult. So Richard made this catch for his DR200 upgrades. Simply use a 3mm punch. Punch the roll pin in the direction of the muzzle. Go sluggish since this punch additionally holds the ejector in place. When you clear the bolt catch, simply swap it for the improved model. I used channel lock pliers to push the roll pin again in place.
Final up in Richard’s DR200 upgrades is his 6-position gasoline regulator. The manufacturing unit one has 4 positions. Now you’ve two suppressed settings together with the conventional 4 positions. Simply push the detent and rotate the gasoline regulator vertically. Pull it out of the gasoline block and set up the brand new one.
Ultimate Ideas On DR200 Upgrades
Richard has a bunch of regulators however not that many magazine catches or bolt catches. At this second he bought out of these elements however nonetheless has some gasoline regulators left.
I’ve but to go to the vary and take a look at these DR200 upgrades. The magazine catch and bolt catch work as they need to. However I should shoot the DR200 to check the gasoline regulator. The value was not unhealthy, particularly for small half runs like this for a distinct segment weapon platform. I hope different folks provide you with extra upgrades, new barrels could be nice.
