speaking of.. I'm sitting here looking at this Tippmann 68 carbine that's somehow got a selectable full auto mode and like the pre-cursor to the cyclone feed.. You manually spin the loader thingum up by hand.. If you stick your finger in, hold the paddles and wind it up... pull your finger out.. Holy **** does that thing spin FAST. If this gun didn't have a bad oring I'd totally see how fast I could make it shoot. I bet it RIPS.

Lemme upload pictures of this goofy thing.

Ah, the Tippmann Factory FA. Trouble is they never quite worked right. I hear the right collectors will pay a pretty penny for those.

Sadly I don't think its something my boss would let me sell. He's looking to create a paintball museum of sorts in part of his store.. He's got some paintball stuff that's as old as I am.. lol..

Thanks to him though I finally got to shoot an original splatmaster the other day.. Those things shoot sweet! too bad it only chrono'd in at like 158fps.. But it got like a million shots outta the 12gram.

Original SplatMaster, you say?






We have some fun a couple times a year as a little staff group.

They're a blast. You never know if you've got one that shoots 150 or 280, gets 30 shots or 15 out of a 12-gram, if you've got one that leaks or seals. We have a rule that everyone has to switch guns every couple games, too, to keep it fair.

Isn't it funny how we're a group that loves technology, loves to lay down paint, loves fast toys, and has more fun playing with 20 rounds on us one shot at a time than anything else?

I've been considering dropping the money and getting a true stock class pump this season because of that.. I really want to own one of those two PGP's that I posted above.

Its such a stress reliever to play recball after practice with a bunch of randoms.. using a mechanical cocker. I go after people who think they need to ramp and shut them down. Mostly enjoy coaching noobs and helping them have a good time.. a stock class would make sure I'm taking it easy

Plus I shoot ultra evil all outdoor season anyway.

You can see that Tippmann Factory F/A featured in this epically nostalgic ad from 1996:

Last I heard Elia had stopped taking new work and was backed up for months, but that's been a while, so it might be worth dropping them an email. Be prepared to spend some money...

Who is Elia; and how can I reach him? What work has he been known for?

Dude Elia does some sick milling. His UL milling will make any gun crazy light.

Looks like his prices have gotten cheaper then they were... when I last asked him about milling my SFT like a gun he did to match/beat the weight of a gmax he quoted me for $415~ .. looks like I could get that for way less now.

If I weren't in love with the faded stock anno of my sft I woulda dropped the money on a mill job last summer just for something unique.

I'm nervous about my dark man, I hope that the oil fixed the drop off.. I never got a chance to pickup some circlip pliers from my grandparents to take the ram out and lube it.

Homeboy is being a douche and not answering my text messages asking if I can use his virtue clock tonight and check for drop-off (scientifically). Tourney Sunday. Need 2 reliable guns! One teammate is shooting a luxe and he doesn't know how to maintain it.. so who knows when that's gonna go down!

Gentleman, I have a challenge for you with a finders fee. I am looking for an 06 dark ego. Ideally like the one I had back in the day. It was white with polished red accents. But I will look at other colors. Like I said, there is a cash reward to who ever finds me one in great shape. Thought about getting and 11, but realized I want my old gat back. I tracked down the user I traded it to but sure enough, banned.

06 Dark Ego was the last electro I had as a main shooter. Traded it off for my Darq I shoot now. They're really great guns. Both of them.

Wolf, maybe I can find the guy. What was his old screen name?

Arizona-Diamondbacks was his name, but this was in 06 or 07 haha.

Here is a shot of the beast in her prime...

Tough spot, looks like he was scamming people on here from a quick check.

06 was really the last time, IMO, any Egos had real personality. Kind of a shame 07 was when they jumped forward in performance, and lost the millwork that made the PL ones unique guns.
