Mill that baby!

Plus that reg is so off color.  Maybe paint it all to match after milling the marker.

if your gonna get a new trigger, go for a fang.

As for what type of centerfeed neck to get, alot go for the Rufus Dawg Centerfeed kit.

About milling, its basicly just doing custom body work to the receiver halfs. Some actually use a real mill, but most just use sandpaper or files and stuff like that. common milling is getting rid of the raise "Tippmann" on the gun, as well as slimming down the rear sights and eliminating the velocity ajustment lip. other things include getting rid of the sight rails or filling in the warning lables and such.
Basicly, you just do whatever custom work to the body that you want. there are plenty of ways to do it and plenty of things to be done. it just depends what you want your gun to look like. lots of people are more than happy to keep their gun looking the way it is. If thats you, dont bother milling your gun.

Yeah thats the centerfeed I was refering to I would say get it either from rufus himself or Tippmann parts, that first link it trying to rip you off charging that much for the same thing.

Reason I would say get the fang instead of the Ape is that its cheaper and the ape doesnt really offer any better function

The fang is only 30$ US and the Ape is 50$ also the fang has three places for adjustment, post, pre, AND microswitch tripper. the ape only has one adjustable stop and switch tripper. so in my oppinion, the fang is better AND cheaper. yeah the ape comes with a magnetic trigger return, but those arent really needed, and if you really want one you can easily make your own with the little magnets you get like with the fake earings and such. Yeah the ape comes with a trigger guard but you already have a trigger guard thanks to your gta double trigger so that isnt a worry.

So basicly, go with the fang unless you REALLY want a magnetic return and don't want to make your own. 20$ for something you dont need and could make yourself anyways for practically free. The ape does have a "Special ultra smooth pivot point" but that does just about nothing. again, waste of 20$

by the way I guess I never actually said it,
Nice gun.

Also I would go with the centerfeed from Rufus Dawg's site because if you scroll down more they have a link to how you can send it to them for milling and install.

Edit: or for those kind of people who dont like following directions....

Thinking about it...
