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.
