Old/new mag project, need advice.

An old paintball chum of mine recently came across a box full of paintball equipment we both thought was long gone.

Inside he found some goodies that used to belong to me:

A grey/blue ULE mag body,
A X-valve with complete lvl 10 kit
A carbon fiber trigger frame (no grips)
A basic mag rail (not drilled for front grip)
A sear which seems to fit the body/frame/rail.

I bought these parts long ago (2004), but never got the puppy up and running. Along with the stuff he found, I've had a Tuna Rail in storage which I'm hoping to use.

I know nothing about mags so I have just a few questions.

If I use the Tuna Rail instead of the basic mag rail, can I throw a front grip on the mag without drilling? What parts would I need? Would I need to buy a different sear as well? A lot of the tutorials linked are long since broken, but if someone has a good guide they'd suggest I read, I'm happy to do it.

On the trigger frame, it looks like my only option is an intelliframe if that's incorrect, could somoene offer some suggestions? Thanks!

I'll throw some before/after pics when I get time.

You can drill the standard rail for a foregrip screw, they typically are drilled almost thru except for less than 1/8".

You would need an RT pro sear and sear pin to use the Tunarail.

There are many aftermarket frames but the Intelliframe is a good choice.

Good luck with your new addiction.

Big thanks to Tuna and tunamart.com. They had all the little dink parts I needed and were quick to respond to my questions.

The marker shoots great. I bought a ULT but took it out after giving it a try... shoots a bit finicky for me.

the finished product:


Felt surreal working on a mech gun, but man... this thing is fun to shoot!
