That's her now. I've decided on a couple things.

1. The ASA+rail is being swapped for a Bob Long gear-drive direct mount:



It's the only direct mount on/off I found with a macroline port on the front rather than the side.

2. Replace the Dye Hyper3 with a Shocktech inline:



I fit a red one at my local PB store but it has to be a black one. The look and the fit to the front block is perfect though.

3. Although the SCMIII is the best LPR, I'm thinking about a different look for this gun. I would need to find an Alias LPR to use this Hybrid LPR cap:



I haven't been able to find the full Hybrid Verdikt LPR anywhere.

So what you guys think? Still thinking of ideas. Definitely not going to spend money on the AKA 2-liter for this gun, the Shocktech looks good and is way cheaper.

Oh, also guys, I need to find a new frame piece. The cover side, not the side that holds the internals. If anyone has one, let me know please!

Also thinking of looking into some custom milling to take off some weight.

Ok, picked up the BL gear drive. It doesn't quite fit exactly where I want it to, but I think it looks better than the Eclipse rail + NDZ on/off.

I am considering the CP Gen3 inline. I fitted it to the gun and it looks quite awesome. Just trying to decide if $80 is worth it for my NME.

If anyone knows:

1. A machinist with NME experience
2. A way to get NME frame parts

Please let me know. The marker is performing good now, but I'm definitely going the milling route. I also want to replace the one side of the frame that is no good.

Also if anyone has NME parts they want to empty out, let me know.

Looks pretty nice so far.

I wouldn't buy the Shocktech regulator. Not great regs IMO. If you have the stock reg, it's actually very good. It's internally identical in design to Bob Long Torpedo regs. The only thing you would need to do to make it any better is add a delrin piston (paintballkingdom.com has them). If you really want a good reg and are not as concerned about asthetics, pick up an AKA reg. The 2-liter plus is the most consistent reg out there hands down. No other brand even comes close.

Also for the LPR, pick up an Alias housing (Preferably without internals) from the BST and use the Hybrid LPR cap you posted a pic of. You don't need any of the internals. Go over to AKA's website and buy the SCM-III internals for $15 (Or take apart the SCM-III you already have) and drop them into your Alias style LPR housing (No modification needed). Now you've got a great looking SCM-III for cheap. See my post on it here:

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...9#post57154739

You can make it slightly better by using a PBK (Site mentioned previously) delrin LPR piston in conjunctions with the SCM-III internals. It will be hands down the best LPR you can get and it will look great as well.

I will do that with the LPR TJ, that's going to be nice.

As for the inline, I'm pretty sure I'm going to pick up the CP Gen 3. I like the looks better than the AKA and it's a lot cheaper. For my rarely used backup, I can't justify a $100 reg.

Glad you didn't go with the shocktech. The CP should perform much better.

How are the regs from the WGP Black Magic? The milling is awesome.

Nemo, the blackmagic reg I had didn't even come close to my System X regs on consistency or recharge rate. Get that baby rippin a string and you will notice more shootdown with the Black Magic reg IMO.

By they way, Kudos for continuing your love affair with the NME... Looking forward to someday getting one of my own. (I used the regs on an Alias and an 05 Ego as I like the ergonomics.)

That was true at one time, but Shocktech hasn't made regs in quite some time and teh CP regs have been refined and improved since.

Ok all, I will update with a pic soon. I'm just waiting for the Alias LPR body and CP Gen3 inline. I really wish I could find the full Verdikt LPR. I love the look of it.

I am currently deciding on whether or not to get the flame volumizer with the Alias LPR. If it would help for overall performance, why the hell not. If it hurts performance however, let me know as I don't want to negatively affect it.

Also, I plan on sketching up some custom milling. I would still like to get my hands on the base half of the frame since the screw hole was tapped out to a bigger one.

I'm going to see if the machinist can mill in some dovetails to the frame so I can ditch the BL gear drive and use the Custom Designs Twister I had on it. I decided I just don't like the look of the BL Gear.

I'm also worried about getting different color parts and not being able to anno them to match well. What do you all think?

I like the look of the All American barrel on it, but the Hero barrel from the Vanguard Creed also looks sweet. Plus I can anno it. The AA, not so much can be done.

CP reg is ordered. Someone offered me the Alias LPR and flame volumizer for $40. I'm not even using the internals, so I don't know if it's worth spending that...

Well, discuss!

Someone on AOG has a blue front block with a black Hybrid Verdikt LPR on it for $25 here:

http://www.intimidatorowners.com/for...ead.php?t=7327

$25 would be a pretty good price for either. Buy it, keep the LPR, and sell the front block. You could probably get what you paid.
