Hey Riddler, did you get that CF twister from the guy who used to work at Boston who was selling it a couple years ago? said it was used like once?

beautiful stuff by the way, jealous of a couple in there

I did indeed snag it from Matt Falbe of BPS. Good eye. Thing's gem minty... It ran flawlessly even after sitting in a closet all those years. I did swap the springs and re-sweetspot it, but that probably wasn't even necessary.

And thanks! If a couple of mine catch your eye, I think I'm doing something right... You've definitely got some goodies!

That red twister and the merlin most notably...jeez those two just jump out at me...

if you dont mind me asking, did you pay Matt's asking price for that one? I remember what he had it listed for...or did you get off the hook for a little less? I hardly take mine out to play any more but they turn heads every time I do

Thanks! A local buddy did the 'inferno' Merlin (new inline style, obviously - and my camera really doesn't do it justice), blue splash Twister (that one was a restoration project) and smoke Automag (bought new from Tuna) anodizing. I still have to decide how to have him do the DSP.

As for the red splash Twister, I may or may not have gotten it for a bit less than asking price, but I still went pretty big on it. And it was worth it... Every year it seems there are fewer and fewer unmolested, un-beat custom markers ('cockers or other) left in the world. I'm thankfully in a place financially where I can try to snag a few of them (though never as many as I'd like!) before they disappear forever. That's the name of the game for me, celebrating paintball's history.

I'm looking for an original Lapco pump now...

There aren't fewer of them...just fewer people willing to part with them...or fewer people who know what they have and want to sell them....

sadly...


what kind of LAPCO are you looking for? a Ghost? I may know a couple people with them. I assume you don't want one of the '06 or newer models though...

Definitely one of the originals and not the new breed. Beyond that, I'm open to Ghosts, Spirits. Spectres, Daystars, etc. Preferably complete and unmolested. I have an AGD 6-pack begging for a home, and while one of my Apexes would be perfectly well-suited for it, I'm leaning towards a tasty old Lapco. Need one n my collection, anyways.

That Eclipse Sterling is the gem of the bunch imo, and there's some very nice markers in here. I would love to find one of those to add to my collection someday.

Oh, jeez, and I did not get a chance to see it.

In regards to the red/black twister, I just wish that I asked Matt about it while I was still playing at BPS. If you ever want to sell it, I would love to help you recoup your 'losses.' I regret not seeing it for sale in time.

Thanks yo! Getting the (enormous bore) matching AA barrel Freaked this week or next, so it'll be super playable.

Yeah, I guess one day he just needed the funds more than the gun gathering dust in his closet. It was priced a bit high, but well worth every penny. Shoots as good as it looks, too. One of these days I have to take the blue splash one to the field...

Man, the twisters, sterlings, and suprisingly the rainmakers were my favorites.

Rich history indeed, I wish my twister light was a clamshell.
