Question Modding a paradigm LM

Hey guys,

Got myself a M series paradigm from 2009.. She is a beauty. Already ordered the heatcore upgrade to make tear down and cleaning easier etc..

I'm pretty handy when it comes to modding anything. But here is my question;

Should I, or should I not, mod the marker to receive the proprietary scarab tgr2 mags?

Clearly it would hurt resale value of this marker, but would also make her pretty bad ***.. Should I really chop a limited edition marker serial number 000022??

Thanks guys/girls

I suppose that would depend. Would modding to allow SA mags prevent it from continuing to use the Milsig mags?

If the answer is no, then I would say the resale would only take a hit if you did a crappy job. Otherwise I see no reason modding the gun to allow more mag types would be can issue with anyone.

As for whether you should do it or not that's really up to you. What about the SA mags make you want to do it? The round collar mags don't support FS so that may be what you're thinking about. The question you should really ask yourself is if you feel the risk of potential irreversible damage is worth it.

Thanks for the reply.

The new scarab mags allow both FS and regular .68 paintballs to be fired from the same mag. It has a half round and half square collar. The mod is pretty straight forward as for machining the marker/ bolt.

And the original round collar milsig mags would still work.

How often do you use first strike rounds?

I don't so far. Waiting for a FS ready MKP-II bolt.
