Default Evolution of an E-90

I'll edit this for clarity, but wanted to start this while I was inspired. So right now this is mainly a photo journal.

BigEvil posted up a Facebook memory commemorating the anniversary of the E-90. I was thinking about this the other day and reminded of something Keith said a while back about how mags just evolve from smaller parts or whole guns into different guns.

In my case, it started with a rail...

A Noxious rail that Christian was offloading as the last of his current parts at the time. He had just started talking about and put up renders of his new foregrip, so I wanted a project. Then someone made an M-90.




It was awesome and shot like a dream. But as you can see, incomplete and waiting for more parts. I got to playing with it in this configuration for a while. I didn't want a round ASA style forgrip, so I held off and used it like this instead. But I fell out of love for the centerfeed twist lock body because paint was so friggin small and I swapped a ULE body on it from another mag just to see what it was like.

Then came a proposal for an E-version and I sent my rail, body, and valve away for fitting and tuning. There were only 6 to be made. BigEvil sent me this later:


Finally got it in my hands:

From there it went through various design stages... This was because I couldn't take it anymore and I just wanted a damn foregrip because I thought I was never getting the Evolution grip from Venomous Designs that I paid for.



And this FINALLY arrived:


So:




I really liked the black ULE on it...



And finally:



I am very satisfied with where this is at, and I don't think there is much to do for upgrades. It's a strange feeling to finish a project, because I was always looking for just one more piece to make it perfect. Thankfully I have four other guns that need to be finished!
