Sorry internet no pic for this one either, but traded my pump for another electro in hopes of starting a tournament team and it all came crashing down. The marker was an extremely upgraded smart parts ion
that NEVER shot. It was advertised as working, but it would never stopped leaking and 2 years ago i finally got rid of it because it was sitting on my work bench forever. I also found the problem, but it was just so far gone already.
Shocktech Bolt out back body
Air America vigilante reg with stripped threads
blue lazer eyes
2 qlock feednecks
(Way stupid trade on my part, but i got rid of it for one hell of a deal later!!!)
It all gets blurry from here honestly, but I bought an 2k2 vertfeed autococker and then later pumped it. It was a parts box sniper that i put a cheap pump kit on with CCM internals and a cp reg. it was smooth as butter
Sanchez machine barrel
ANS pump kit
This marker was used for a solid 6 months and played with basically every weekend
Not trying to shout out my Ig haha this was the only pic I had of it and for some reason I couldnt freaking save it off of IG
My Dm8. there isnt much about this gun other than it was my first highend marker. I traded my parts box sniper for it straight and finally started a tournament team and this gun was used in my first point in a tournament. It chopped like crazy (i didnt know it at the time, but the previous owner set the lpr way too high also it didnt have eyes at the time ). All of our guns went down this tourney so I used my friends Ans gx4 pump with a 50 round hopper for the whole tournament and I got a 3 pack (teammates died off the break) and we won the tournament! I only used this gun one game and the only reason I got rid of it was because when I got the eyes fixed (later on) I learned that the virtue board in the marker only capped to 10.5 and that eye malfunction was the only way i could play tournaments with the marker. So I traded the dm8 away.
(the only pic I had of the marker. this was the only point I played with the dm8 and it was my first point ever in a tournament!)
So remember the ion parts I had? I traded them for a 2003 dark angel ir3 copper to silver fade. After replacing the battery I was suprised to see that not only did everything but Cops work. that there were only 7k shots on the gun! it had almost no original parts, but damn it was a work of art. The milling was amazing and it even aired up no leaks on orriginal orings. I sold it to George at angel paintball parts (who i bought the battery from) so he could fully restore her. i just needed an actual marker because when the dm8 was being worked on i couldnt afford a project midseason. it was just bad timing
I always loved angels and they have always been my favorite gun company and this was my introduction to them.
here is a better pic of the dm8 as well.
The gun I should never have gotten rid of. i played with this gun once before selling it and I have regretted it ever since! Since the dm8 wasnt tournament legal i traded it to a guy on here. I got a smart parts NXT with every upgrade possible.
Pooty toolless back cap and can
upgraded trigger (I forgot the company I think cp?)
q lock feedneck
the marker shot money and I got rid of it
(The photo will not upload onto photobucket, but i will fix this later because i have alot of pics of this marker.)
The ego 6. I got this as a backup and had it at the same time as alot of other markers, but it never worked. The marker was in mint condition, but needed detentes. So i got brand new detentes and then i discovered it needed a reg seat (a bit harder to find) after some tinkering I ended up trading it with another gun. also the noid was going out and I didnt want to spend 100 dollars on a new one.
I traded my nxt for an angel a1. Now i loved the a1 platform and I always wanted more "modern" angel. So i went out and traded my perfect nxt for it and when I received not only did it go down in a tournament, it went down maybe everytime I went to play. And the worst part is the previous owner had stripped at least 5 to 6 different screws in the marker making it impossible to work on. I sent it out to brad and he helped me out, but then it started leaking again. My lesson has been learned to never use a magno valve/ram again.
So feeling really dumb about the entire situation I did a 2 for 1 and got a shocker sft with even more upgrades and after one day of constant issues it was sold. 1 It hated my mid pressure tank that I used because they really like 850 psi not 450 that my reg outputs. Also i found it to be extremely uncomfortable and guess what it didnt cap to 10! with either board it came with.
The ups were
ton ton frame
3 freak backs 1 tip 2 inserts
upped trigger (dont remember the brand)
early blackheart board
dynasty board (lowest cap was like 15 lol)
gloss red body
other odds and ends

Really basic dm13 with a carbon fiber can. I got it signed by federov at cup and that was really it. Reliable and I used it last season with my current team shake and bake.
I traded the dm13 at cup plus 20$ for a luxe 1.0 with a stripped screw. I went straight to the dlx booth. Come to find out that it was missing a screw it wasnt really stripped. The marker was fully rebuilt by them. It was a luxe 1.0 with 2.0 core, case, and eye covers, and eyes. Come to find out at the booth that the board needed to be replaced if i wanted to use the eyes i got for it so the seller refunded me half of the cost and we went our separate ways. I shot her blind for two practices and a day of reckball and after it went down on the last time i decided to trade it off. the luxe was beat up by the previous owner and it had alot of cases through it. I made the decision to get a different gun to shoot for this season.
I just got this marker a few days ago. Jt impulse with 6 cases through it. since the recent drop in resale value on 1.0s and the board issue i got a straight trade for a almost brand new JT impulse. i havent shot it yet (i was supposed to today, but im here feverish and writing instead lol) I love how lightweight and ergonomic this marker is. I have always been a spool guy and an inline poppet guy, but this may change my mind.
