Custom GSL

Last year at world cup I was lucky enough to use one of Eclipse GSL markers before they were released. As soon as I had the gun in my hand I was blown away by everything on the gun but I personally didn't care for all of the lines on the sides and top of the gun. Obviously that is a personal preference but I wondered what the gun would look like without them. The gun seriously shot amazing and we ended up winning the tournament. It also had the most kills of any gun and highest fantasy paintball points scored in the league. I figured I would try my best to get a hold of one to use for the 2014 season. Fast forward to a couple of months ago, I was able to get a GSL (which I purchased mind you) and one day later I was off to working on the body. Originally I wanted to have the gun ready before the Dallas PSP event but I knew that would be tough given I only got the gun 3 weeks before Dallas.

The first thing I did was talk to Drewbie because he had done something similar (although on a much larger scale) with one of his recent guns so I got his take on it as well as tips and any suggestions he had. After that I took to the gun the next day. Everything was done with a dremel, and several different grades of sand paper. I can not say enough that this takes a long time but at least you have less risk of ruining your $1800 gun. I wasn't able to finish the gun before Dallas so I used unfinished which actually made the gun look very worn and pretty damn cool if you ask me. Jack Wood even suggested I should keep it that way, although when he first saw the gun he thought I was crazy.

I want to thank Mario Calva and FX Anodizing for doing the final polish and anodizing the gun. I really cant say enough about the quality of his work as well as how professional he is.

Now for the eye candy.

Here are progress pictures from when I first started, I swapped out the gold parts with silver half way through the project.










This is the gun as it was used in Dallas








Before ano



And finally, the finished product

Wow that looks amazing, the GSL milling is definitely beautiful but I prefer the smoothness of this one for sure.

Uber nice! It takes a ton of time to do a nice job by hand but in the end it's your baby. No one else could make it just like you did. Plus if you're going to reanodize it, why not. Make it truly your own. A pure thread of hand and home milled guns be a treat.

You should name the gun , "el cojones grande"
I know I couldn't take the risk on an investment like that. But damn did it payoff for you. Beautiful gun, very well executed.
