It looks alright, it's probly better than the picture makes it out to be. I think making it a flat blue would be more practical for woodsball. This is mine with gloss paint and satin clearcoat

I give it a strong 7/10
I'ld be real cool if you shaved down the front sight alittle bit since its not really helping as much as a sight now.

thanks...

about the front sight.... there is really nothing to mill down...there isnt that much around the bolt so i left it alone...

as for the paint i did 3 caots of primer, 3 coats of Saphire Blue metal flake, and 2 coats of clear coat. all paint was Testors brand model paint and it worked very well...i used the 2 part laquor system (primer and clear coat) and the base coat was an enamel.

i can honestly say i didnt do a perfect job... there are a few like, micro sized air bubbles where the rear sight used to be. also didnt do a 100% job on the milling of the letters. still a little bit of a texture cause i couldnt get it perfectly smooth and round. but all of that isnt hardly noticable unless you stare at it pretty good. but for my first time milling and painting...id say i did a d4mn good job.

I'm talking about the part that you push down to release the elbow could be shaved/cut down to smooth out front end of the gun.

OOOO! i guess it could be done... ill see what others think about that and wether or not it would still function right to release the elbow.

The whole exposed part doesn't need to be removed, just enough to match the milled rear sight might look cool.

Thats a neat looking color of blue. It might not be due to the quality of the pic, but looks good. I think milling the front sight a bit to match the rear would look good.

thanks guys...

ItsJustMe: like i said in my first post...their horrible pics. just temps untill i can get my dads digital.

Bunker_Attack: yea i know...lol fortunatly enough, when ive out shot my stock hopper, i havnt chopped any balls. never chopped a ball and ive put about 6,000 since i got it in January.

but as for milling the front sight down, i wont be doing that... it wouldnt be practical cause then i wouldnt be able to push it down to release the feedneck.

thanks guys and keep the comments coming.

Yeah, i'd go for more performance upgrades.  The paintjob is nice but like you said, the part where the letters was is still a little rough.  I'd have sanded it down more smoothly before painting.

Also, if you do mill down the front sight, (i say don't), don't go past the screw hole.

trust me i wont....

the only other thing IM doing to the gun is probably a hopper. this gun wont be mine for too much longer. im sellin it then getting a BKO and upgrading that w/ PDS. so i im holding onto my tippy untill i can get what i need for my new gun.
