Cool Did I miss anything lol?

Ok I am having PPS build me a Classic 'Phoon with the below stats.

Jungle print nickel plating
Chrome/nickel highlights
2 inch barrel extension
Custom 45 frame with Blade trigger
HV/LP internals (I use air only not Co2)
No-rise center feed
1 QEV on ram
Double barrel venting
Delrin bolt orings
Nickel Stabilizer

I'm sure that I forgot a couple of things, but that's got to be close. I think that the total so far is up to like $1600 plus. I spare no expense on Typhoons because they're my favorite markers of all time hehe. Is there anything else that would be worth adding to the gun before it's shipped a month from now?

if its not too late, a matching drop would be nice...or even a matching muzzle brake, just for an extra added inch

a sight hood and bead wouldnt do much good unless mounted on a 45 to the body on the left or right so thats out

what about a custom milled velocity adjustor cap?

i love creating extra work for craig...heh (j/k craig, u know i luv ya! )

Pump kit. I had a pump kit on my old Classic Typhoon and it was the smoothest pump stroke I've ever felt.

Custom fore grip of some sort.

Yeah a pump-kit is another thing that I should get. Are they hard to convert?

my friend Wigum has a phoon w/ pump kit on it...he just has a rock knob on the LPR on the front and has the pump arm on the gun at all times

when not being used for pump, its held on with a small metal piece he fabricated to hold it into place, and when he wants to switch to pump he un-hooks the pump arm, slides it off, turns off the LPR so no air gets to the RAM, slides the pump arm back on and hooks it to the bolt instead of the small fabbed piece and he's good to go...

its so nice...

now he has a Q-loader on it....sheesh, like it wasnt hard enough for me to hit him at pump day already....bastard.........

Grips

Some nice custom wood grips, Shartleys are recommended. Wood grips really set off a Classic Typhoon with the matt/gloss nickel finish on a classic. I just ordered wood grips for my classic Typhoon CP28. I should get them this week. I will post pics when I get them.

Wood grips are an interesting idea as well.I'm not sure what kind of grips I'M going to use yet for sure. Craig is making me a custom 45 frame for it so I can use almost any grip on the market. $300 for just the frame !!
