Reflex'd Twister Build

When I picked up this Reflex kit it was paired to a WGP vert feed body, that was okay but I wanted to pair this kit with a Twister so I started hunting. Eventually I found a drilled SP Lite body. Body was sent to get the holes patched then it went out for ano. I didn't like the way the ano turned out so I sold the body and packed up the rest. After one day of posting a WTB thread for a vert feed Twister body, A2D came through and sold me his. The second time at ano I went with Caustic Customs who always does a stellar job. Below is the completed project. The marker will be sent to Tim Firpo for tuning.

Damn nice marker.

Makes me want one to go alongside my lv1. I had yet to experience the wonder of paintball when the OG twisters were made...

Thanks for the comments gents!

What Jim said... No make shift response trigger, this is the real deal. There are roughly 27 of these Reflex kits in existence.

What? No. The original response trigger was on the RT mag, the BPS reflex was to recreate that effect on a cocker.

If we want to get technical... here are the patents for each system:

Reflex Autococker: http://haveblue.org/tech/patents/US005890479.pdf

RT Mag: http://haveblue.org/tech/patents/US005913303.pdf

The Reflex patent was granted April 6, 1999 and the RT Mag June 22, 1999... Although the RT Mag was applied for first the Boston Paintball patent was granted first....

THAT being said... the RT Mag definition was for a "predetermined pressure output" as the Reflex system was adjustable (and has since evolved into the Response systems used today) hence a much more sophisticated system.

Chicken or Egg?

Hey! I'm that Tim Firpo guy you were talking about!



Beautiful colors and so nice that the kit actually matches on this one! All the ones that I own or have worked on were the flat black factory anno but were put on cockers with spectacular anno jobs, kinda makes me sad, heh.

There isn't a word in any dictionary to describe how much envy I have.

Truly amazing marker.

Did you want to go with a time period reg/asa?
