Old School Shocker

I got this shoebox a while back and it worked pretty dang good. The only problem was that the trigger adjustment sucked and it was almost impossible to walk. I had a spare gz frame laying around in the stock pile of parts and wanted to see how well it mated up. It fit pretty good but it was a tad to long and curved at the top. I threw the frame on my mill and shortened it up along with taking the curve out of the top. Then I milled the tray out a little bit to help route the wires easier and provide a way to mount the frame screws. I reused the front frame screw holder and drilled and tapped the rear screw. Amazingly enough the frame is the same width as the bottom of the tray so it looks pretty good. The next thing on the schedule was to do away with the freaking maxflo reg. I used a remote line on/off for the new asa. I milled it down a little bit shorter on the top and drilled and tapped both the tray and the asa. I also tapped the inside of the asa on the top for an 1/8" plug, put it in and sealed it up with some epoxy. Then I put 2 regular sized macro line fittings on it to get away from the massive ones that were on there. Thats where it stands of right now. Some time this week I am going to reroute the micro switch to a conventional gen 2 timmy style and look for a universal board that will accept eyes and some more adjustable modes and stuff. Also I have "The Part" for it, but I am going to make sure I can get it working with the regular parts before swapping the out for "the Part" haa

How I got it:


How it looks as of 1/3/08:



Any thoughts or suggestions are more then welcomed.

Nice work. I've done several angel frame installs on shockers but never thought of putting a timmy frame on one. I also like the vert adapter, but was it necessary to use all that epoxy? I did one in the past similar to yours but was sealed with a blue loctited screw through the tray into the top of the VA.

That's some clean work you have done! I've had plans for doing some work on a Shoebox, but finding one for a reasonable price has proven to be a challenge.

I also have to notice, your tablecloth in the second photo is very vibrant and extraordinarily distracting

no it wasn't necessary to use all the epoxy but the little bit that came out around the top of the asa will be removed, it is just excess. and the epoxy that i put over the plug was just insurance that it wouldn't leak. Anyone know offhand if the universal tboard supports dual noids?

The universal t-board says it supports closed bolt guns so it should support dual noids.

I bet that feels so much better than the stock frame, I used to own one myself and had put an otb 90* frame on mine. Splash anno FTW.

the only issue - most shoeboxs just arn't quick enough to really unleash the power of a timmy frame. they just arn't to quick maxing at anywhere from 10-13 CPS.

clean work tho, the vert ASA looks nice!

Here is a vid of a shoebox that I worked with last year. http://www.paintballer187.com/Vids/T...cker_Small.wmv

I'm not sure if it's shooting the 15bps PSP ramp that it was set on, but I'm fairly certian it's over 10bps and should be at least 13.

sounds like about 10-13. defiantly not 15. SP always claimed they could get 14 CPS out of them, but i think they were stretching it a bit.

either way, they are cool guns. lots of fun to play with. they just arn't speed demons, never were.

Thanks for the comments guys. 13bps is plenty fast enough as this is just a screw around marker. The speed demon title is currently being reserved for a black vice here in a few weeks....

Nice work, I'm kinda fond of the old shoeboxes. The guy I ref for shoots a very old Pneumatic Ventures Inc Shocker. It would be pretty sweet if you could mill a bit of the excess metal off the body too.
