Anyone tried a Max55..need advice

Hi all,
This may seem like a strange question, but I wanted to know if anybody has and tried .50 cal paint through a maxx55 marker. I know these are very cheap at the moment because they have stopped being made. I know they were designed for .55 cal. This means that putting .50 cal through may be very inaccurate and lead to a slower ball. (especially because they come with a 4 inch barrel)
The reason I ask is that I am looking to add .50 cal to my paintball site in the UK and I am just looking for a few cheap markers to test the market. I would never move from my .68 cal FT-12 becuase they are excellent. Insurance industries in the UK will only cover .50 cal paintballing for younger players.

we did a bit of testing on the Maxx 55 and found that they will shoot @265-280 fps with a heavy spring. Ball detents were an issue also.
we ended up machining the body and installed Tippmann detents but with the huge bore, they had issues with accuracy, so we made some .50 barrels.
they shoot ok, but we did see some ball breakage at the breach due to it being larger than the barrel bore. overall, not a cost effective modification for field operations.
