So after being out of paintball after playing all through college, I've decided to build another pump for a few reasons. The main reason is to have a cheap way of playing any type of paintball, whether it be speedball, woodsball or scenario. Also it's what I enjoy doing, custom work and building, repairing etc. guns.
Here is where the project began: after tossing the idea of even starting a build around, I found a nice pump that I liked but didn't like the price.
Here's the gun:
Looked decent in the pictures.
It was already half-blocked which I wanted and it had a WWA (White Wolf Airsmithing) pump kit which is the same kit I used on my last pump build and loved it once set-up properly. Also had a valuable CCM frame which I never planned on using but helped with the decisions.
After some negotiation with the PO I pulled the trigger and bought the gun complete besides the asa and rail.
The project was under way so I dug out all of my old gear, knowing I had quite a few parts I wanted to use.
First part was my favorite barrel that I've always kept over the years. It's a WWA freak back which can be hard to get and I've always loved the look of it. Here's a few pictures of it, I had some CF vinyl laying around so it's currently CF wrapped.
Also wrapped a Macdev asa I planned on using. It came off a Drone DX but the threads had been messed up by a bad tank bonnet.
Ended up removing the vinyl from the asa but not the freak back.
Last part I still had I wanted to use was a hyper 2 that I've had for a long time. I shaved/milled whatever the center rings out of it. Still functions great but has always needed to be polished.
Once I had the gun I stripped it and removed all the parts I didn't want to use.
The CCM frame was quickly sold. CCM feedneck was removed, CP reg removed etc.
Found a few small problems but wasn't unhappy with the deal
-Detent is barely working - needs to be replaced
-Pump arm is bent - planned on replacing and added dual pump arms anyways
-Hammer was cut, not slotted - not sure if it'll be a problem but I have a spare I can slot if needed
-Bolt showed more wear than I care for
-Plan to polish the breach because of this too
-Bolt pin was ghetto rigged - need to replace
-Pump handle was trimmed but not very well or even
