I shot the gun today and was only shooting around 250fps with CO2 and was only getting 215-220 with air. I need to get a stronger main spring to raise the velocity up. I shot a few FS rounds and they were amazing.

My friend with the chrono brought out his mech Black Magic and put a few FS rounds through it. The real proof today was when he shot at a fence that was 50-60 yards away, the FS round flew almost level and broke easily on the fence. He then shot a regular paintball at the fence, the paintball didn't even make it to the fence and bounced off the cement in front of it.

Finished pictures:
All the way down

Medium

All the way up - - there is also a setting between each of these as well, no need for that many pics




Business end


Bi-pod folded up


Drivers view

Actual eye placement

No suppressor


Some close ups of breech area (not very good but you can see what it looks like)






Better pictures will be take outside when I have time during the day.
The gun will also be getting a ghillie rifle wrap so that will cover any flaws. I'm happy with the gun the way it sits.

Only thing I need to finish is to tune the gun to a higher velocity, spring kit will be here by the weekend. Once that's done I can further site in the red dot with paint and FS rounds.

I also have a 4x32 scope on the way with a T9 I'm trading for, so that will be put on this gun for those long shots.

Thanks for the compliment.

It shoots great, just was shoot @ 250fps max this past saturday. I didn't know how full the tank I was using was. It shoots harder with 12 grams (when I was testing) but then there's no stock so I'm going to tune the gun based on the 9oz tank. I will be getting my tank filled and the spring kit by this weekend and hopefully be able to get the gun up to speed.

looks good

whats inside the body infront of the trigger guard (bit with shark logo on) would be a good location for a hk ump style (straight) FS mag, if it could be hollowed out and a mag release made

Thanks.

There nothing inside there, just some supporting plastic for the frame. I was thinking it would be a good spot for a mag but that's a lot more work and money than I want to put into the gun. I have a T9.1 on the way so if I want FS mag few gun I'll use that. Thanks for the idea though.

Well I haven't got a chance to make the notch yet but I have been distracted with a few other toys.
I bought/traded for a RAP4 P99. It's .43 caliber and is a realistic replica of a real P99. It's almost completely metal and very heavy. I got a holster and 5 magazines with the gun. This is my sidearm to go along with this rifle. Should be fun for woodsball and scenario play.

I also am expected a T9.1 that's coming on monday. The T9.1 is coming with a nice scope that I will be putting on this rifle. The red dot will be put/used on the T9 for now. It's a 4x32 scope so it should be just enough magnification to use with FS rounds.

Speaking from experience, bigger porting makes for a more efficient suppressor.

Thanks for the comment, I'll take that into consideration.

I have just recently moved on with this project. I am using parts from this gun on a newly purchased Empire Trracer which will be build into a similar gun. Not sure what is to come but I've been working on a suppressed freak tip instead on the one used for this project. Without a lathe, boring out and centering the pvc was a pain.
