For those that aren't aware, the FN303 is usually used for riot control and shoots a ball that weighs nearly three times that of a paintball at 450 fps. OUCH!

I've had one for over 8 years (some of you may have seen me review it on my youtube channel) and brought the velocity down on it before, but wanted to get it really set up well for shooting first strike rounds. (The first strike rounds are actually a development of the round that this gun was actually designed to shoot).

First off I cut open the valve so I could put an insert inside it to get the velocity down. Now she is shooting at 297-299 with first strike rounds.

Then I removed the stock barrel made an adaptor ring and set it up to take Autococker threaded barrels. (after a quick call to Tom to check out how the barrel was originally installed). I have an Empire Superfreak with carbon fibre tip installed so I can run a 0.69 insert for the first strike rounds, but could also bore size it down if I was running normal paintballs.





Quiet, and accurate now. and I have the versatility of using any part of the Super Freak barrel system (even the Apex 2 with normal paint if I wanted).

Only thing left is to get an angled sight rail and set it up with one of my cross bow scopes.

I will have it with me at the next Tunaball for sure.

Quite neat indeed, seen a few videos on youtube about these. They are interesting, alas too much work involved for me to buy one

Simon if you don't anno that black and yellow acid wash I swear that I will drive to Jersey and kick you square in the balls......
I'm kidding, I kid. But, seriously, nice work on the conversion. Why not just shoot the riot ball? I'm pretty sure everyone will stop shooting back at you..

Awesome.

What do first strike rounds usually bore out to? Reading the part about the freak set up made me wonder.

Very cool Simon! Always fun to see projects like this done right! I'm not a big scenario guy myself, but I'd imagine that if these mods weren't too difficult to do, maybe you could produce some change over kits? Just an idea I guess.

Not that i don't think this isn't cool but why was this on the main page as you said other people have done this as well, also you might want to try using a rifled barrel most first strikes users who have used them recommend them.

Other people have turned an fn303 into an actual field legal paintball gun??

Simon, very cool man. Does the magazine require anything special in order to use non-first strike round paint?
