A broke University student's markers...

Nothing crazy, I've done all my own purchasing except for my first marker.
All started with this:


360 QEV, HPv1 bolt, XE kit, Qlock, Hybrid (I think) on/off, Un1tec, random trigger with custom magnet mod (increasing instead of decreasing force with a magnet balance... it's pretty slick.) Used to have the pink empire baller grips and the 2litre (to break it in)

Then I bought this:

I kind of regret getting the black chrome model, as the finish hasn't really lasted. but, it's my workhorse and I find myself going for it over anything else still. bone stock other than the grips to match my other markers. Love it. The tape is holding the battery door on as I somehow lost the screw. I put it away with the screw in it, grabbed the gun and no screw. No idea what happened.
Evidence of finish issues:


Then I bought the Prostock, but a red one. decided I would halfblock it and made a mess, so a friend gave me his blue one (long story) so I did a minor parts swap. yes I like those empire baller grips. The Detent is only missing temporarily - decided to see differences between it and the one off the Karnivor when I noticed that it is jammed 'in' so I'm working on getting it fixed.

The pump was given to me with the pneus on it YEARS ago, so i bought a pump kit(i originally thought it was for a 2k+ body... ) and slapped it on there. the frame and reg are from my red PS. Turns out it's a 97 mini RF - stock Mini too! Pneus leak like it's their job and I since I already have a mech... I pumped it.

Just recently bought the Karnivor. it's pretty much stock besides the barrel. I LOVE it, and it'll be getting an MQ2 here soon, along with some other upgrades with my tax return. The clamping feedneck by the 97 pneus is what WILL be on the Karni IF I COULD GET THE DAMN FEEDNECK OFF
The 2litre is on there for now as I can't seem to get the stock HPR apart to rebuild it. I'm undecided if it will stay. Probably will.


I thought the image was amusing. also this one:

If it isn't obvious, it's the karnivor bolt, the Prostock bolt, and the 97 all lined up to the bolt pin showing length differences.

Well, I picked up an 05 BM body, and found a nice new home for my 11/16 MQ:




I had to cannibalize my Karnivor for this(which was being a PITA), but I'm working on finding a new frame and eye for this, so the Karnivor can be put back together. (which I have another MQ for)

This was given to me somewhere along the way:


No idea of it's condition... but this is different from other ones I've seen posted here:



And of course, the project Aedes "Alice"

In pieces right now, and that's not the final ASA. This has been put on hold indefinitely until I graduate or find time (and money) to do it properly.

How she sits now... I have a BL Cam Drive to go on it (might end up on the Karni...)

The Aedes was originally intended to be the best of the best, hence the UL frame, 2Litre and Cam Drive.

NO PARTS OF ANYTHING ARE FOR SALE - ESPECIALLY THE MQ. DON'T EVEN ASK... UNLESS THEY'RE LISTED IN ANOTHER THREAD.

Use the 2-litre for sure, as it may just be the best HPR on the market.

I like your autococker collection, I have always had a soft spot for autocockers. They are so unique, I miss mine already. How is the karnivor?

I like the black chrome finish on the mini. I have no seen that before and I like Empire markers.

Make that ion a pump ion.

Sweet collection.
