The older cockers get, the less I see builds posted here. Lets change that!

Call me crazy, but the one gun I ever truly regretted selling was my entirely blue eBladed, superbolt. About this time last year I set out to find it and failed. That is how this project began, and I just anodized and timed it last night. I call it my "ultrabolt" because I feel it deserves at least half of the reputation of an ultralite at this point.

Nice gun and nicely down. How'd you have the anodize done?

How do you like the double trigger slider? I've never used one before

Thank you!

I actually did the anodize myself. I stripped the original anodize off all the parts. I degreased all the parts after the acid strip, and then bead blasted all the parts with very fine grit aluminum oxide. The color is called "Fast Blue."

The double trigger slider is pretty nice. It is far less resistive on the trigger pull than a hinge frame.

Very nice work. Over the decade plus I've been playing the only marker I regret selling is my first cocker. I've owned tons since but I'll always miss the first one.

It sure isn't the BPS build that's on here, but it does fill that hole of regret. I agree completely. I started paintball with autocockers about 7 or 8 years ago, and my first marker was a BNIB superstock. I was 12 at the time and caught the, "I have to overhaul the heck out of this autococker...halfblock..mQ.. ego frame..all of it!" Years wiser and older, I regret not just leaving that gun stock and running a perfectly flawless cocker. As it turns out, some of the best autocockers I have ever shot were all stock. Luckily for me, I found a BNIB superstock this year to fill that regret. The superbolt was my first mech, so now I feel complete again.

I just think most cocker enthusiasts have found their way to CC. Most beginners find PBnation first.

Definitely do! Lets keep up the spirit

That is a sweet cold fusion.

Also, dbkid, you are right. That said, about 5 years ago this place had high traffic all the time!



Just finished the anodize this morning on this one!

My current project:



Currently missing:
detent
a decent cup seal
jam nut
bolt pin and retainer (though I'm probably just going to get a delrin bolt and a plunger & ball lock pin)
banjo (to be transplanted from my '05 black magic along with the LPR as soon as my systemX front block kit comes in)
a ram
a decent ASA
a decent slide frame

I'll probably mod a dust red karni front block, seal the VASA holes, drill the back block through for a traditional cocking rod and possibly get a DCL wave trigger for the SF frame and get it recessed for e-blade buttons. And there's plenty of meat left for cosmetic milling, then a good polishing job and off to anodize, I'll probably have 2 or 3 markers anodized at once to make it worth my while.

That's the plan, it may take years for it all to happen though.

Still need an oring or 2 and some grease and it's ready to be timed. Too bad my tank is out of hydro!

What kind of body is that?

tac:
Superstock projects are sweet. The SF frame is super comfortable. You should definitely get the ego button mod done. I have a completely stock superstock I found and had the button mod done. In my opinion, it is the most comfortable of eblade compatible frames. What are you thinking on the anno?

tipp98:
That turned out very nice. You have the nicest reflex project I have seen. I also like that you kept to your traditional blue/black color scheme.

I wouldn't get the button mod done. It's already drilled, but I still need to recess the frame so I can actually get to the buttons. It is the most comfortable of the e-blade compatible frames (although a bit more room in the trigger guard would be nice), but the grips are too wide for my hands (I have child sized hands, even size small empire gloves are a bit too large for me). I'll see if I can make some grips by molding silicone over acrylic (or just plain sculpting acrylic, worked well enough with my FEP Quest).

As for cosmetics, IF I have it milled (filed down with guidance from a friend who's a jeweler, already have a decent set of small hand files and a dremel for details and the final polish), I'm thinking I'll round it out and sculpt some scales running front to back like a karni, but going all the way down to the bottom tube (think karni meets ripper) and then have it ano'd either gloss black and yellow like a wasp or metallic green like a dragon fly, with the frame/s (SF and slider) and pneus ano'd to match.
