Hey guys I wanted to update all of you on my 98 custom platinum series. I have put about $425 into this gun and I am still gonna keep upgrading it. I will show you some pics of it now. Tell me what you think and if I should add anything. I am thinking about adding a bipod and upgrading internals. :) Happy Valentines day!



sorry for big pics... took with my IPOD
That is what it looks like now :)

Don't waste your money on "upgraded internals". They will do nothing but empty your wallet. No significant increase in performance/durability and in some cases may actually lower performance. For an upgrade that will actually make a difference and not just add weight and tacticool, look into an HPA tank.

Wow, I just reread the description and realize you mention having over $400 into this marker and it doesnt even have an E-grip?? Holy Crap Batman!

I was thinking about polishing internals...What else would i need beside a steel wool? And IDK about HPA because my local field uses them and when firing you can watch the air gauge go down.  I play once a month from 8 in the morning till 6 in the afternoon using co2. 1 20oz co2 last me most of the day.

CO2 typically does allow for more shots per tank than HPA, but HPA is considerably more consistent.  I think every field that I have played at has had an all day air fee that is somewhat reasonable compared to single fills on CO2.

Sounds like a lack of maintenance by the local field.

If CO2 tanks had guages, you would see those guages move as well.

You can check c02 pressure with a gauge like this but I prefer to weigh c02 tanks to determine how full the tank is.

On the c02 tank in the picture you can barely see some red paint on the side of the tank which states the weight of the tank when it's empty.
