Nice to know there's so many people interested in this; I really want to have it made only problem is as stated before, is my struggle to find a good machine shop. The last shop I found didnt have a CNC mill for the grip frame and front block so if anyone knows a good reputable shop I'm all ears. Also as for TeeTwo . . .

As long as you don't try to sell the system and use it personally, you should be legally safe. We all know how sue happy this industry can be though, god forbid we see advancement by individuals like yourself. Keep up the good work

Well because I can't find a machinist I was thinking of some other ways to make a prototype; and I came accross "styrene" (plastic board) while I was at Hobby Town USA today so I picked some up and im going to see if I can use it to build a plastic model of my front block design, and I should be able to use it for testing because my design does not have ports in it for the LPR/gauges it just holds the ram and the 2 3-ways. If all goes well i'll atempt to make the grip frame as well, then go back the the first machine shop I found, and have them make my LPR adapter.

This is a platform we never really got off the ground and in terms of innovation it was a F-22 entering WWII airspace.

You aren't taking pre-orders for anything, trying to make a buck on something we made famous nor are you trying to create a blatant knock-off and replicate the original model (unlike some people out there), all that would do is de-value the brand and piss off current owners.

We applaud your efforts good sir on this one... From one Reflex owner to another: make us proud!

****If you need parts let me know.

Well if you ever get the opportunity to get your hands on a Reflex Kit, you will understand nothing can compare to the badass factor of the monster front block and the look on people faces when they can't figure out wtf it does or what it is, thats kinda why I wanna build something like it, but make it so you can get w/e after market parts for it that you want for example two 3-ways of your choice along with the LPR and ram; which in the end is simpler . . . if it works thats is.

Heres the front block mock up using the styrene. After I got this done I've come to the conclusion that its a tad to weak for testing but at least I know I can sqush everything together on a normal sized block with no issues other than having to remove the barbs on just one 3 way.

Maybe I missed something but it looks like the 2way(?) is going to have the same amount of travel as the rod running the back block. I doubt traditional 3ways have anywhere near that travel. Maybe having the connector slide freely on the block arm with adjustable stops wouldwwork. Then it would only direct air to the trigger ram when the back block is at full extension. Just a thought.

The kit was rapidly banned at many fields.

Well great news! I got a hold of Craig Palmer yesterday and we're hammering out the details now on milling my front block and banjo bolt. Now those of you who wanted one of the banjo bolts they are costing around 100$ to get one milled. It'll have the threading in the front so you can screw your LPR or w/e into it directly, also on the inside it will be slotted for an Allen key for installation/removal purposes, and lastly it will not have the side venting holes that would usually allow air passage from the main body through the banjo-bolt into the LPR. Once I get these two parts I'll test it on a 2k cocker with a Boston reflex autococker grip frame to see if it'll even work, if it does, well hopefully Craig and I can have some more business in the future regarding a custom frame for my kit. Heres the final product draft for the front block and banjo bolt. . .

I'm the original owner for the very first Reflex Kit Boston Paintball sold. I built an autococker from scratch with their kit using a Twister body. If anyone is interested please feel free to PM me. Pretty impressive piece of history for sure. It took a few years for loaders to be designed that could keep up with the firing rate of this gun.

$100 for those banjos! I'll make them for $50 then, all though it'll cost me $5 in materials and labor.

I think everyone has questions about how it works. Both a pneumatic work of art, and vicious nightmare. If you could do a write up on it, I for one, would be very interested in it.
