i took a 3in cutting wheel and cut out a bunch of my grip frame......only becuase i have to turn on and off a board in there, ur only gonna like lose 4oz's, why go through struggle just to loose that.

i say do that if ur gonna mill the rest of the gun, that way u loose like 1/2lb togeter.

mine weights 8.4lbs w/ EVERYTHING on it

You should take the clamshells apart and take everything off them and feel how heavy they really are. Aluminum is extremly light and even if you were able to "Drill" away half of the recievers you would not even notice the weight difference. But that is cool that you are looking for ways to customize your marker and make it your own. I have a 98 as well as half the civilized world and i am proud of the fact that mine is different then most others you see.

I don't have pictures of the before.  But I took pictures just right now of the after the 98 superlight mod job - just for you. 

Here they are at :

--- Could some one on this forum take one of their grips off and take a picture of their trigger frame so that daniero can know and see the difference?

Maybe you could take all the internals out, put the shells back together, and just throw grenades. If you throw enough of them you will build up the muscle in your arm to be able put the internals back in and be able to lug your heavy marker around. Nice thought, but I dont think that all those small holes in the frame would make enough of a difference would it?

Hey madcardisease you are soooo funny it's just too bad you can't read!!! But if you could you would have known that I already said "Okay guys, well thanks for letting me know it won't do jack nothing but I did it anyway.Ē

But to answer your dumb question again which was: "Nice thought, but I donít think that all those small holes in the frame would make enough of a difference would it?"

No it won't do jack nothing as I had just said 3 post before yours.  Anyway hopefully now you'll understand that after your mommy reads it for you or spells it out to you. 

Okay and actually, about the weights...  I am not really some scrawny guy. I am a lifeguard and I am actually quite fit, although I haven't worked out in the past year because of a bad ankle injury I got when skateboarding and was told to keep weight off of it.  But before that injury I had worked out for a year and a half and although I am not very big I am one of the most fit and muscular lifeguards at the pool that I work at.  -- I'm sure you don't give a donkey's a$$ nor will you chose to believe any of this or you might try to insult me saying that all the people at my work must be twigs or something but just donít even try to insult my size because first of all your not funny and second of all, I am most likely more muscular than youíll ever be.  

The real reason for me doing that too my gun is because I like playing around with it and modifying and upgrading my gun.  It's what I like to do, so that is why I did it!  So how about you shut up with your lame jokes before I give your mom "madcardisease".

Oh ya, and how about you get an education so that you can learn how to read.  I also just hope that you will soon obtain some common sense so that you can figure out that youíll just look dumb posting and asking a question that was answered by me 3 posts upward from yours and above that by almost everyone else in this thread.  So next time do us all a favor: get your mommy to read the thread for you so that you donít waste our time and so that you donít show how much of an idiot you really are.

Just to say, the internals are what make up most of the weight of the gun, aluminum is extremely light. The gun looks pretty cool though.

We sure do get some odd ball mods from some clearly troubled players. Drilling a hole is what is done with a drill bit. Screwing a hole??? One screwed up 98! I can't believe I actually read this thread!

Well I'm sorry your mom died (if she really is past away and your not just saying that then I really feel bad) also that I took most of my anger out on you today madcardisease.  But I was just getting ticked off at everyone that called me weak (directly or indirectly) and saying the mod I did was dumb.  But whatever I shouldn't really care what others think and I shouldn't have snapped like that.

So .... I'm sorry.

No, a little calculation with the thickness of the material and the apparent diameter of the holes indicates he likely reduced the weight just a little more than 1/2 of an ounce.

well... i guess it's good for the diehard 98 guys on the speedball field...  it's his choice to do this mod...  it's not like he can't get new receivers if he screwed it up.  experimenting is how society progresses...
