Eagle 68

Yup.

I have one now, missing the clips and the parts for the c02 cartridges, it does have a rigged remote line adapter, but the best part is the shells are in good condition, i would guess it wasnt used much


also just got a second one for a steal, not much info on it until it arrives but im hoping it has the spring clips


so now i have 2 of these rare and classic desert-eagle sized paintball pistols, no idea what im gonna do with them but there you have it

got the second one in.... the shells are in pretty piss-poor shape but the internals are all intact and look to be in good shape....now to get some 12g cartridges and find some way of finding or making a clip for it, thinking a low tension spring modified to fit in a 10rd tube... not sure yet

hey that would be awesome, finding anything for these is near impossible and I count myself lucky to have found the one I did...haha

I'm thinking that I am going to make at least one working gun, using the more broken pair of shells and lots of epoxy...that way I can keep a pair of shells in that nice vintage condition

Started to epoxy the broken set of shells, its nearly 2 pieces and some parts (like the trigger spring) are missing bits, trying to rebuild those bits with epoxy

used a whole tube of jbweld and so far it looks like im gonna need a whole lot more.... hopefully when its done it will at least fire a few times, lol

Alright so I found this pretty awesome product on amazon while looking for epoxy to order:

http://www.amazon.com/InstaMorph-Mol...A2C2L4358Y1E24

Instamorph, its some kind of poly-plastic, easily moldable around 160 degrees F, used in 3d printing, etc

figure I can use a heat gun to melt it into the cracks of the eagle 68 bodies, and as it cools i can mold it so that all the internals fit and work correctly


pretty awesome, should be an easy way to rebuild these shells, and if i can figure out how to make a mold out of the existing shells, i can just make new ones out of this material, but thats being optimistic

Ive started filling in the frames with the instamorph, so far so good, the plastic used on the shells is really quite weak, it starts to crack if it gets too hot, so its a bit tricky..... and it is taking a while, soon though, soon
