LV1 Conversion?

I just checked EP and the list for the 50 cal conversion does not include the LV1, I'm wondering if the LV1 can be converted?

I thinking that when the conversion was made and the list was posted the LV1 was not in existence.

Any help would be grateful. Im going to ask in the LV1 thread

Thanks Scott

There is no conversion and there's not going to be one.I called PE and that is what they told me.

Probably won't see many more conversions being offered for any gun really. .50 cal has pretty much been established as a rental only caliber. The fields near me that use .50 cal will only allow it to be used in their rentals, no player owned guns at all.

Why would they not allow it to be used by other players? That seems ridiculous.

Well, more precisely, they won't allow ANY player owned guns on those days. Their renters generally like to only play against other renters. So if you want to play on those particular day, you rent a gun, and it will be .50 cal.

If you want to use your own gun you play on a special gear owners day. Those days they allow .68 cal. I suppose they would sell you some .50 cal, but you'd be the only one using it.

Ok, thats a totally different situation that makes a lot of sense. I thought you were saying that they wouldn't allow you to use .50 cal on a standard day i.e. against other people using .68.

What's this comment for??? 50 cal is picking up at our field. I'm in the market for a new marker and was thinking if theLV1 was compatible with the conversion, I could kill two birds with one stone. Just swap it out when a 50 cal game picks up.

A lot of the pap players at our field like going out and playing with each other for the hole day and shooting less than a case of paint, just a change in paste

Maybe learn about the situation before you run your mouth! If you don't like 50 cal play stay out of the thread!

Oh, I like 50 cal. But just about everyone that plays it uses rentals or basic mech's that they own. I case my 3.5 and still feel shady using my backup etek on days with a lot of rentals @ my local field. Using a tourney gun against an army of rentals is overkill as the I implied in the last post.

That being said, shut the **** up sandbagger. Go shoot up more rentals with your lv1. YOU SO GUD

It'd be cheaper just to buy a cheap .50 cal than to convert to .50. If your really after that electro feel, pick up an ego 10 and throw the PE conversion kit at it.

Im not sure what you issue is but lets bring some common sense to this discussion. Amazingly enough, you can use .50 cal against any type of player, not just rentals. There are some major benefits to using .50 cal in terms of capacity, effficiency, kick, etc. It is just a fun and handy round that would be fun to have an LV1 conversion kit for. Unfortunately one does not exist. /thread
