A master list of all parts available in the latest version of Pimp My Gun.
The receiver is the part of a firearm which houses the trigger group and the bolt. Pretty much all of the major parts of a weapon are attached to the receiver, so when building a gun, it is often a good idea to put together the receiver first.
M16A2 Upper ReceiverEdit
M16A1 Upper ReceiverEdit
A modification for the barrel, which reduces firing noises when shooting.
non-adjustable shoulder rest present on many small arms. sometimes containing cleaning equipment or formed around buffer tubes such as on the M16A1 rifle.
Collapsible Stocks- Edit
Stocks that are able to adjust the length of pull between a rifles pistol grip and the operators shoulder for comfort or shooting method. present in many forms Collapsible stocks can be side folding, run along a buffer tube, or use PDW style slide retainers, such as on the MP5N.
An adjustable stock is essentialy the same principle as a collapsible stock except that it is usually folded against the receiver, as in some AK Style Rifles or the Airborne Version of the M1 Carbine.
A folding stock is a stock which can be locked and unlocked on a pivotal axis so the entire stock can be folded against the weapons reciever for compactness such as used in the SIG556 Rifle.
Cheek rests are padded cushions that are fitted to a weapons stock such as on a Sniper Rifle or HUnting rifle to aid in the process of hittting a target easier and more comfortably.
Buffer Tubes- Edit
Buffer Tubes are a part of the recoil system which soaks up a lot of the recoil (through accelerating its mass) and slows down the fast-moving parts of the action so that they don't damage either themselves or the frame of the rifle in which they are working.Edit
The AR-15/M-16 is one good example, but you find buffers in nearly all full-auto firearms as well, and in a bunch of the semi-auto ones. The AR-15/M-16 uses a tube buffer, but there are other types, 'squish' buffers, Belleville washer buffers, hydrostatic buffers, nested spring buffers, even pneumatic buffers.
Sights & ScopesEdit
Iron Sights- Edit
Iron sights are the sights that come with the weapon straight out of the box. They assist the shooter in sighting a target.
