Edited with some better internal pictures and what not, figured these would help hold you guys over until I can get a video (probably a week or so the way my week has been going at work and school).  Anyways, Ill be sure to get a video asap when I get air, paint, and time lol.  Enjoy!

That gun inspired me to pull my 98 out of the tool box.  Speaking of Natural Nub I haven't slung paint with him in a long time.

I always wanted a beautiful E-98 like that.

But they're just so huge and expensive.

Nah not really..thats what the clay is for..so i dont pinch eye wires.  Other than making sure the eye wires arent between the recievers its just like closing any other 98.

That's crazy cool, man. A lot of ingenuity went into it after a further look. Again, nice work.

He did it for just 20.00, but he doesn't do it anymore due to him taking a break from machining.

How did the Howitzer bolt effect the gun? Ive been wondering if I should upgrade the stock power tube and bolt. With my gun the only thing Im only looking for is accuracy and wanting to do anything to upgrade that.

Howitzer bolt is just for total upgradedness..theres not much improvement over stock.  Your bolt isnt going to help your accuracy, for that you need a better barrel and better paint.  Go with a CP 1 piece..they are cheap and the best barrel ive ever had.  Im going to buy one for this 98, but in 14".

To everyone else..Im in the process of moving/packing so I havent had the time to even get to the field and my gear is packed in boxes for the move..im working on getting a video once Im done relocating.

Every time I open this thread, I'm still impressed.

It must be very satisfying, knowing you have made a work of art.

Thanks for all the great comments guys.  I just wish I had the time to get to the field and make a video, heck..even get to the field.
