Agreed. Also the template for gravity fed hopper would also fit a revvy. Two birds with one stone.

I forgot, to ask you to send me some extra scrap pieces. I wanted to see how the foam reacted to long-term exposure to paint.

*edit* I just hooked up my equipment, and this may take longer than i thought. There is too much ambient noise down here. Between my computer fans and the aquarium.

If you have to trim a little off to fit just right into the hopper, use those little scraps. As a matter of fact, drown 'em. I was told that this material is non-absorbant.

If you haven't already, you should make a post on the spec ops forums. All those guys obsessed with being "snipers" are sure to want something like this.

That's nice, but look Yo, I need someone that's gonna test this out and come back to post up their findings, that's MY fee for sending one for free. I'm packing these and driving to the post office to mail off on my tab. I can deal with a concise review, but so long as they're descriptive and given with an honest and thorough opinion. Is he even part of this forum? Doesn't sound like it to me.

Anyways, I may just post this up in the Spec Ops forums as well, but not until I have templates for a Revvy. Until then though, the TIPPMANN gang still gets first crack at 'em, so PM me for yours. If you're willing to review it for me, then I'm willing to send you one.

No, he's not part of the forum.  That why I wanted to check with him first - to make sure he'd be willing to write up a full and complete review for you.  Were both going to an all day scenario game soon, so I'll be with him the whole time and this is probably when the majority of the review would take place.  I'd make sure the review got to you.

Anyways, I understand if you don't want to because hes not a direct member of the forum and such.  Just figured I'd put it out there for you.  As of now, I still don't know if he'd be interested.

Ok then, well if he is and is willing to post up through you or whatever, I think that'd be great too. Let me know if either of you are interested and thanks.

I'd like to get in on it, and would gladly test out the X7 pattern for you. I've got almost immediate access to an area where I can shoot and run to test the noise dampening factor of the pattern.

My one question would be how difficult it would be to clean should there end up being a ball break or something in the hopper?

How absorbent is the material to paint, and how would it effect subsequent rounds stored in the hopper- also, should I have to clean it- what would that entail?

Yeah, sure thing 'oldp'. I'll be getting those done soon in the next week or so. I've been in kind of a rut lately. I haven't ganked anyone in over a week.
