incubus- I've seen tons of threads asking the same question but no definete answer is ever presented. Its always I think or I'm pretty sure. I've heard so many different numbers its not even funny. Searching definetly is your friend though. I just never cared about it enough to try and find out.

I dont know if it has been already decided but I have always really liked tribal eye covers for timmies. Might be hard to find now though.

I do like them but I already got a pair of normal nonmilled eye covers. If I get bored I might pick up a pair and get them annoed. I know a place where I can get them NIB but they are like 45.00 which is a bit much.

You know, i havent had any problems with it, my friend had one on his 2k2 and it would pop out every once and while, i put a Empire valve in this ripper, and i notice that the reg housing holds the spring really nice...i dont know, i might end up keeping it...im still thinking about it.

Sorry for no update guys. FBM is being really lame and I dont have any idea what they are doing with my Ripper. If anyone is thinking about using them dont. In my case not only have them been slow their communication has been terrible. If anyone knows anybody at FBM please let 'em know to hurry up with this thing lol. I'll probably be giving them a call tommorrow.

I think the stuff getting done on my future Ripper will be done from PrecisonPb. He really looks like he has a good operation going. I really like that Black and Blue fade thing

Ripper 1's are so expensive as project guns. I'll go through a brief run down of what I had to do, I started in 2004...I had always liked Intimidators, I had a Classic as my 4th gun in 2002. In the summer of 2004 I started my Ripper hunt.

I started with an Alias and about $500. I traded the Alias for a 03 Viking and a 2k2 Timmy. I traded the Viking and 2k2 for an Empire + $300. Then I searched for a Ripper, bought a stock one for $1000. Seller didn't tell me about the stripped frame screw. Sent the Ripper body off to a machinist to have the bottom tube milled and to have the hole rethreaded with an insert. I also had him send it to his anodizer for a run of Yellow and Black. I had both guns (Empire and Ripper) anodized. That was about $100. I sold the Empire body for $250 or so, and I finally had my Ripper/Empire Hybrid, AKA, the hottest gun in the world. So, total money spent? An Alias and $50. I paid for the Alias myself if anyone is wondering. I didn't include the parts prices because I have enough parts to rebuild 2 Intimidators and build 1 from scratch.

My next project is going to be insane...but you'll have to wait and see what it is. Muahahahaha. Hint: Classic Body...Liposuction.

Nice, nice Invader Zim.

Yea I really dont wanna think about how much I spent on this gun. I got a great deal for the Ripper itself. I traded a pretty much stock DM4 I had for it(this was around when DM5's had been out for a while). So I got a steal on that. But then I bought all the parts individually and brand new because I didnt really care about the cost as long as it was exactly what I wanted, which is what I got.

I traded an Ego for the one I'm getting. Its already been 05'd pretty much, but I'm gonna change quite a bit on it. I look forward to projects, it takes up time(and money) and gives you something special in the end.

I can't wait to see what this Ripper is gonna look like and to see Zim's next monster.

Now that's tight right there... now line up your right grip panel to the proper hole. It's too far forward, it should line up exactly like the left panel.
