if the gun itself wasnt so long, it would be one of the coolest looking guns out there.  thats including DM4's and Timmies.  but tippmanns are just too long to look great.  the gun is probably a little unbalanced because the reg is not right below the feedneck.  im not 100% liking the open linkage arm, but i shoot a cocker and its got a lot of moving parts, so i guess it cant be that bad.  finish it up too.  like make the trigger and the fittings look better and itll be hot.

as for teh good things.  that has to be the MOST coolest freaking milling i have seen on a tippmann.  ever.  its got full rear cocking, and the milled in rocket cock is bangin. cant wait to see the shroud.

Can't please everyone. I would put money on it that some of you hate the Mona Lisa as well.

mona lisa is hot.

hey you used the same t gas fittings as me! i think this should qualify you as my pier(however u spell that). i feel so special .

id give ur gun a 10/10 mostly cuz atleast some1 agrees with me that this is a great idea. i love the paintjob, and by the way did u just use like a toaster oven or wat.

i would say the only thing i wouldve changed is the way you obviosly got a little carried away with the bondo hehe... i also dont like how, alright u got a rocket cock under the bondo and all... but forget about going electric right?

i love that thing u did where the safety should be, just cuz it looks cool but i think it would be cool if some1 could engrave that instead of using bondo. note- i will most likely steal that little idea and use it.

by the way all my pics i think are still up but... are really out of date, i think thats what they looked like... like last year? oh well, i totally agree with u not showing ALL of ur custom work. but gun looks nice.

keep up the good work.

Looks pretty ugly IMO (Shape) paint is nice and I respect people when they can od their own work on their gun.  You probably have one of the fastest non RT blowbacks ever.  tell me if i am wrong.

Dack, I do not plan on going electro with my Tippmann.

Ashran, hopefully it will be the fastest non-RT blowback gun ever.      And if not, it will still be stupid fast for a fully mech gun.

Evil, what screw are you talking about? As for the brass fittings I am working on a cosmetic alum. shroud to cover them, but most likely I will just resort to spraying them the same color as the gun.

And Dack again, glad you enjoy my webpage index. Unfortunatly its really just a place holder. I haven't updated it in a long time. But you can tell that at the time I was planning on starting up some paintball industry.

I have to agree with you on the length of the Tippmann. Because I didn't feel like reworking the internals to shrink stuff up only a small bit, I opted to move the from grip back and replace it with a vert mounted reg.

What's really funny about the length of my gun though is that I put my gun without a barrel next to my teammates 04 Shocker with a 45/4500 tank and 12" Freak and the Shocker was only 1" longer.

Oops, sorry, I meant to address that.

What I did was spray down a half dozen or so coats of the base red paint. Followed it with 3 finishing coats of red and then 2 finishing coats of black allowing each coat to air dry before repainting.

Then I clear coated the whole shebang with a spray can of automotive clear coat from Wal-Mart.

Then I put all the painted parts into my regular house oven and brought the temp up to 250*F for about half an hour.

Turned the oven off and left the door open to cool everything down.

After that it was rock hard.



As for electro, I have a brandy new black 04 Vision Shocker with Free Flow bolt on my order list so I felt it wasn't necessary to electro the Tippmann.

Plus there is something very primal about a fully mech gun that tears.

arent .... ehm...

im not sure if i dreampt this up, but wouldnt the air in the oven be toxic after baking something painted in the oven?? just curious! thats alot of coats... i was only planning on doing 2 light coats and then one final coat to get the shimmer on it cuz my paint is got sprinkles .

also with that toxic air thing, would it be safe to cook food in the oven after this whole procedure? i might just buy like a $10 toaster oven and do this instead....

Pish, toxic, those fumes smelled happy to me.

But seriously, my house is a machine/paint shop first, living quarters next.

oh, well since i still live with my parents i would guess it probably wouldnt be smart. i love happy fumes. my brother used car paint on his prolite, but im not sure if its cuz the metal wasnt right? too many layers or just didnt bake it, cuz that was like 2 months ago and u can still dig ur nail into it. its hard, but u can.

Yeah, originally I wasn't going to bake it, but when you bake it it changes the molecular lattice of the paint and makes it really hard.

Baking it is the trick.

Oh yeah, just did some trigger tests.

Trigger pull is now 6 ounces over 1.5 mm at the longest point. I believe I can drop the trigger weight down even more if I switch out the sear spring.
