I will most likely do that.

not sure if this would be possible at all but it was just something i though of reading this thread. could you take layers of carbon fiber and bond them together to make a solid/millable block of carbon fiber? then make carbon fiber parts from that like asa's, triggers, grip frames ect? hopefully this idea isnt as far fetched as i think it might be

They make sheets of CF that you can get off mcmaster and the like in thickness close to a trigger width. I have seen a few people make their own triggers and backplates with them before.

I think the problem with bonding several sheets together and then machining them would be cost. It could be done, but if you have a huge chunk of CF that you are going to make a body or frame out of, you are going to have to remove a whole lot of material to do so which would be pretty wasteful.

I think, for reverse engineering, that buying the marker and physically sectioning it to gain acess ot the internals would yield great results... This is what we do at work for failure analysis and test analysis of various parts.

However this will only youw know the dimensions of ONE marker that (hopefully) passed QC checks. To really reverse engineer soemthing without any intuition you need to analyze a number of identical parts to really learn some of the tolerence issues. However, with a sound engineering/analysis background, the design can simply be understood as to what tolerences it might require.

A high flow/capacity regulator for low pressure,to my knowledge AKA 2 liter and Palmer ULP Fatty are the only good ones on the market,would lend itself well to custom guns where reg relocation is required to eliminate dropoff
