Quick Darw Sights

This may be a bit difficult to see but the sights have been painted a flourescent green so that they ar easier to align when drawn quickly



Another Variation of this mod is to get the flourescent acrylic rods that are for hunting bows and glue the rod to the body or screw the entire assembly to the top of the gun body

Foregrip Mod

First and foremost you need a Tac 8


Next you need a Tippmann A-5 Foregrip or one similar(personal preferance)


Steps:

1. Take the foregrip and sand the little nub on top of it down


2. Remove the front frame screw


3. Find/get another 8-32 screw to replace the front one, it should be 1/8" longer then the stock screw


4. Remove barrel to reveal front frame hole


5. Insert screw(and washer if head is too small) and screw into frame while holding the grip straight


6. Reinsert the barrel and spring and make sure your screw does not come up through the frame. you have your completed foregrip
note that the screw does not protrude into the barrel opening


Adds a nice little touch of individualism to the Tac 8 (throw the stock on it and scream HALO!!!)

I like the A5 forgrip idea as I've been toying with the Tib SMG idea quite a bit lately. Should look good with the End Game and a couple other neat toys in the works.

nice ones so far... bought mine 3 weeks ago, and lent it to my uncle. He's looking if he can make a little longer barrel and have it fit for the BT Apex. I don't know what the outcome will be, but I can't wait to see if it actually works...

Treadstone, I love that suppressor

That'd be nice to see an Apex on the Tac 8

I think you could fit an apex on it if you bought a longer barrel

I remember seeing an Apex front adapter somewhere online

Can the stock barrel of the Tac8 be bored out for Freak inserts?

^^ thats what I wanted to know..

I think I asked this in another forum and the answer is yes as long as the barrel's metal is thick enough to house the insert

I would have to say no, it isn't possible. The issue is the slot for the barrel retaining pins. The barrel is thin where the slot is milled out, probably not enough metal to bore out for an insert, it would most likely cut into the slot.

Not in the slightest. The laser wire is routed away from the trigger. I have found zero adverse effects from the mod. I purchased another plastic handle from Tiberus Arms and modded that one, so I frequently switch between having the laser and not, just to make sure that my mod didn't do anything to the performance of the gun. It sure does scare the hell outta kids that haven't seen it before.

I know this is an old thread, but I looked everywhere and couldn't find any other info.

Could someone explain the 'rate of fire' mod to me please? I have just recently picked up a T8 and I was looking for things to do to it.
