I'm real tempted to hack more off, but I don't have spare shells if I mess it up too bad.  I just used the drill attachment for the first time on the dremel, man it works good.

Okay with the $150 cap,... if you buy a package that contains a gun, but also other gear (through ebay auctions, etc), are you able to deduct the value of the unused gear from your budget (with a judges evaluation), or if you are able to sell the excess equipment, are you then able to deduct that from the amount originally applied to the $150 budget.

Such that in a hypthetical scenario, I buy a gun, a mask, a tank, and a harness for 65 dollars. Obviously the harness, mask, and tank make up some of that cost, and are not going to be used in regards to the build off. If you are than able to sell them for (lets say) 30 dollars,... would you be allowed to deduct that from the 65 dollar amount... making the cost of the marker 35 dollars attributed to the budgeted amount?

Good question there C.C. I'm going to have to confer with the judges on this one. I'll have an answer by tomorrow.

I think it should only be deducted if you sell the extra stuff

just my oppinion

I will throw my opinion out in the open and let tallen702 confer with the other judges.

This contest is also about honesty and sportsmanship....with this said...I would encourage everyone to look for deals to keep costs down so more contestants(you) can enter.....a 4 axis CNC mill job is not going to impress me anymore than a low buck. why did I not think about that modification(s) marker....also just bolting on something isn't going to work for me either...

There is not a simple way to do a checks and balances on what a contestant buys or trades...so it's your word....if we find out something is not legit, then we will cross that road if it happens.....If you buy something in a lot as described by Ccool I personally do not care about the extra's. If this person wants to keep the extras or sell them they should not be penalized...I would like a just and fair market/deal price declared for the item(s) used ...I really do not want to keep a running list on everyone and make my fingers sore by punching the numbers into a calculator....I really, really don't want to have a rule list three miles long...but even if it's in a grey area...the judges have the final say....just so you know...if that's not ok please don't enter into this contest....

With the sportsmanship...help the fellow contestant....ok aleast to a certain point.....you don't want to help to much...you do want to win, don't you?...but you get my point....if you know where an item or part is that they are looking for or a how-to....help them out....there may be a sportsmanship prize...or maybe not...

I'm working on some prizes....Tallon702 doesn't even know yet..so the pot is sweetened.......Thanks for putting up with this long post......

 

I don't want to double post so I'll post here....

Tallon702 has updated the rules....please take a second and gloss over them....

Maybe down the road, but price caps add another challenge to the whole thing.

     This sounds like a great idea with one of the best platforms to build off of, the 98. Everything seems well thought out so far but I was wondering if the loader and tank count towards the marker being judged and if they count towards the budget? In most cases I would say no because the focus should be on the marker I beleive. However in some cases like a custom made spring fed magazine I would say yes because that is something more creative than a like a revy and should hold some merit. So is the contest about a complete, ready to fire marker, or just marker itself? 

     If I can get my own project 98 done, which would not qaulify for this contest at all, before the the start of this build off then im in. I can't stop thinking of ideas haha. Well good luck to everyone and be honest, honorable, and have fun, because in reality that is what paintball is all about.

Grr, I must decide between an SLG and building a 98.  Tough, tough choice.

Just the marker itself, Tanks and loaders are not considered into the price unless you are doing something like welding a spring-fed S/C feed tube to the marker. Anything that changes the composition of the marker itself is what we are looking at. Oh, and for all intents and purposes, the barrel is considered a part of the marker.
