AR:K owners... Speedball?

Just curious if anyone has any experience playing with the AR:k in speedball? Thoughts?

A few people have posted pictures of their AR:Ks stripped of the rails and stock to play speedball. It looks a little funky, but it's definitely doable. Underneath all the milsim accessories it's no different than the Fly SB, so it doesn't have a problem competing.

Yea that's what I figured, I think the small disadvantages would be weight? I actually think the ark looks great with rails but no butt. Just purchased one, who knows might replace my a1 fly?

There is a slight weight difference, but probably not enough to be very noticeable, especially with a tank and loader.

instead of using the ark for speedball you should trade it to me for an 06speed

The ark is a slick gun- take a the milsim stuff off like doc said and you have Sb ....the nicest shooting last gen angel ever built . I love the Sb.

Thanks!
I actually like the Milsim extras. I've always been a fan of real guns and also I started off playing scenario, so I feel like the ark with its rails (not the butt) will give me a more comfortable feeling for speedball.just my two cents

I feel you on that. I actually have the tactical add on kit thrown on my SB when I know it's gonna be a woodsy day. Love it.

Nice! I got a mental picture of how that would look, is your gun black? Would look kinda funky if it has rainbow colors with that tactical add on

It's clear with a blue splash. A tad funky looking. But it serves its purpose.
