With the tremendous amount of Picatinny accessory on the market today, it's relatively easy to add technology to your airsoft gun. Attaching accessories to your airsoft gun is also a quick and easy way to give your gun an unique look among a field of airsoft guns.
The M4 with a quad-rail provides lots of attachment real estate for attaching accessories. But if you have an MP5 or a pistol, you may not have any Picatinny rails. This article provides instruction to attach metal Picatinny and/or Weaver rails to your mock silencer to create attachment space.
If you have a MP5, check out our "Adding Rails to MP5 Handguard" article.
The mock silencer is generally a round barrel. Unless you get some science fiction mock silencers that are square, you can't just attach Picatinny rails to them. That is because most Picatinny rails have a flat bottom for attaching to flat surfaces.
