I knew it was first gen, but didn't know the beer can looked like that.

I like the external eyes, keeps that old school look to it. Mario keeps telling me it's gonna get shot and cause a mess, but I haven't had any issues so far.

I'm ready to go play on Nov 10th, Should be a decent group of co-workers,friends, and Spyder if he still plans to come.

It's the one weekend I can't go . I'll be in Charleston on Vacation. Fulda Gap is that weekend too, and I can't go. Never been so disappointed in having to take vacation

I was thinking of getting a jersey for me and my wife sometime, would possibly add this as a patch.

Such a nice color. And after I sell the tank and loader it will effectively have cost $100.

Well the body set screws were screwed in at weird depts and I unbuilt it and then built it again only better. So ha.

Strangely I have noticed that the tolerances on this gun are on point. Bolt OD's and ID's are perfect, trigger and pin are perfect with zero play (which is really weird for a Dye gun, normally UL triggers wobble all over the place) all the threading is tight but not sticky or sharp. It does look like a mill took a couple bites out of where the forward back cap o-ring sits, but I've seen that before and it doesn't cause any issues.

What's weird though is it looks like the original barrel back was machined off center or one side of it spent too much time on a buffing wheel, the "dye" on one side is super faint with the "e" barely visible at all, and the teardrops on the back portion of that side are shallow as well. Never seen this before. The bore and threading is straight though and I use my Ti anyways. Just wish I had the matching bronze tip, it came with a black one.

As a side note, I really wish people would learn that there are ways to take apart a Hyper2/3 without leaving tool marks all over it. I think 2/3 of Hyper2's out there are chewed up. And the other 1/3 have never been disassembled.

Of course, that wouldn't be an issue if Dye used a 3pc design like Eclipse rather than 4pc for the reg body, where the 006 o-ring and adjuster inside gets moved to the bottom cap and the piston comes out the bottom, eliminating the need for a top cap.
