Woodzball trocks.   IMO take off the sight and barrel shroud thingy, and get a r/t and eggII.

Very Unique. I like it, Kudos to you. How Does it proform?

I give it a 10/10 for effort and uniquness (is that a word) [I dont grade Easy]

Suggestions to Upgrade - I would like to see the gun one solid color, I would get a better site Like a Guarder 1X30 Sight, and once you get the R/T get a Revvy or some electric hopper.

Im gonna take the tape off the stock and spraypaint it like the rest of the gun along with the barrel. I dont know what to do about the balancing part.  Any suggestions would be nice.  I'll update the pics.

try tapering the hand guard down into the barrel so it looks more like an m16 handguard  look at the armotechs and the hand guards on opsgear for some help

i was looking at some of those closed red dot sights they use on M4s and stuff, where can I find the one you listed? (I dont really want a scope thing that zooms in like 20x, maybe one that zooms in 1x or 2x).  And its performed well since i got it.  May not be the fastest gun ever, but my friend sold me the barrell brand new for $10, and thanks, i put alot of work into it. and ill check out those armotechs and fiddle around with the handguard.

I have an armotech. One of the best guns I bought.

You can get a sight like the one I was talking about for 95 bucks from redwolf airsoft.



If you dont want to go with something that expensive Go to www.devilmountainsports.com and get $50.00 BSA Reddot



Both are good sights.

Off Topic Question, Where do you live, if you live close maybe we can get a game going.

OH MUH GUH!!11 TEH WOODZBALL IZ SUX ADN ITZ FER TEH NOOBS!11

And yes the TASCO sight is very good for its price.

But remember, when you put your gun away, turn the sight off, unlike me. I learned that the hard way. Those batteries are NOT cheap.

i would suggest for just about any woodsball player not camo paint their marker, youd be much better off getting a ghillie rifle wrap or make your own, i did, its made out of a cut up advantage t-shirt, i made kinda long strips and tied them together. heres pictures

with


without ther rifle rag is in my sig

but i threw that stuff away and bought the rifle wrap which you can buy at opsgear, its awesome so it all depends on whether you want to buy it for 5 bucks or 20 bucks

... oh ya and by the way its a great marker, i understand the stability part with having the front barrel cover or whatever, i like the stock, definitly nice homemade job, r/t will help with speed, but the way i play i dont need that high of bps

.. ok i got updated version with rifle rag

i really dont think painting the gun or adding foliage to it really helps to blend in that mch.  IMO, flat black is just as good and looks a bit nicer.

 

but anyway, isnt that handguard the g36 one?  if so, what you need to do inorder to make it blend to ur marker is to get the g36 sight rail to go along the top.  That'll pull everything together rather nicely.  And as everyone else's been sayin, either paint everything black or paint it all green.

SilentStealth- that rifle rag is pretty sweet.  I have fish netting that might work with some como strips.  Thanks for the idea.

SOL General- I live in Colorado, yeah, startin a game would be sweet.  You can e-mail me or IM me, i got msn and aol.

Stone- I made the hand grip, is there a place i can buy just the G36 style sight?  Might have to do some jerry-rigging to get in on.

Thanks for all your help and suggestions.

Silent stealth the gun wraps look good. I use them too but when you need to move its much easier with a camoed gun. I agree not nearly as effective as a good wrap but the wraps have a tendency to get caught on every little branch at just the wrong time. Great for sniping though

Silentstealth- Do you find that the second rifle rag gets stuck on branches or other crap when your playing in a forest? I tried on once and found it did alot.

Helmut- As for sights look into the adco e-dot, It's a pretty sweet sight but also pretty pricey. Another question, What kind of barrels on your gun? Looks sweet 8/10

ya thats why i switched to the burlap, the burlap doesnt get as nearly caught up as the ripped up t-shirt did (even tho it does occasionally, its a lil more realistic, plus it holds real leaves and stuff better, oh ya and it blends with my ghillie suit real nice

I was thinking about getting a Tippman 98c to replace my Spyder Imagine, because I've been doing alot of woodsball recently and my Imagine just isn't cut out for it.  I need reccomendations on what kind of stock to get on it, because I'm lacking funds.  though I might do like the creator of the topic, and make one.  But I'd like to know what kind of sights also, because I might put a .22 rifle scope on it.

Nice gun I think that it is a 7.5/10 because your hard work put into the your gun. I have made my own stock out of wood for my A-5. I think definely need the G36 sight/hand rail. Play safe and have fun.

g0dhead- Try a red dot scope they work great for short range and somewhat long.  If your going to get a scope get something good don't waste your money on a 4x 15mm or anything crappy like that they're useless.  But yea red dot scopes are awesome and the majority of them are very durable and will last a very long time if you take care of them.

I already have a little Bushnell .22 scope, so I didn't really want to spend the money on another scope.  And yeah, red-dot scopes ARE awesome.  I'll look into it though, see if I can get the extra money.
