By then I was practically one of the resident OG's. And I'm older than you, which qualifies me.

One thing though, if you're fiddling with video, screw the A-5, get a TPX, or similar pistol and make yourself a full on Corner Shot. That might make for the coolest mil-sim project...pretty much ever. Unless you cooked up one of those flashlight/transformer style deals.

Hijacking can end up rather interesting, not a big deal, I like seeing where they go .

I had a TPX and modded SA-8 but I had to sell the 2 to pay bills. I'm thinning down all my guns and with about 1/3 of the $$$ I'm getting for them goes to upgrading my keepers. I would love to make a corner shot but until I get a job, its not going to happen. Besides, when I finally get job, I'm going to get a P95PR, then a TPX for a corner shot.

Just a Mock up but so far this is how its coming. Tapped the slip fit to 1/8" and plugged it, opened the side outlet, got to run a hose to link the 2 ASA's. I am awaiting the rail stock so I can mount the 3.5oz. Slip a 2" PVC pipe over the 3.5oz and dress it up as an M203.

Its going to be interesting.

I put the Bipod on it to hold it up. I am waiting on the stock to arrive and trying my luck on eBay for an inexpensive backup camera system to rig on it.

Edit: Camera System is on the way.

Well that certainly appears to be more than one drop forward...I'd consider that a success.

Green Garden Twine, Home knit tank cover for 3.5oz tank.

Mmmmm... I can feel my arteries hardening already

And cool design! I imagine it's pretty tough if it's made of twine, too... might aid in camouflaging the tank a little.
But, would it prevent the tank from warming up after continuous fire?

The next Agg craze in paintball; crocheted tank covers. I bet if you did one outta 550 Cord it'd be pretty nice.

...am I wrong to want to demand that you put a grip block and that super mega 3x noob drop on there? I mean c'mon, a marker with 5 freakin' drops on it, how would that not be cool?

Just put an HK logo on it, it'd sell like mad.

Continuous fire from a 3.5oz, its not going to be used like that. Its not really an insulator, you can see the tank between the weaves, it should not have a problem warming up.

If I can get some coming up, I will. That was actually the first thing I wanted to make it out of.

It may be cool but it wont be functional. I want this gun to be functional + the grip would not be able to handle the stress of the drops with the monster 48oz tank.

Functional? What the hell is that?!? This is paintball, functional has nothing to do with it.

Not trying to jack your thread but this is what I was thinking:



I don't have a long enough line to power it yet but I think it would work pretty good under your tippy and it would be funtional. At least its an idea. I don't think the weight would bother you as you usually run heavy and its not really that heavy any ways.
