So this little Rebel 02 Bottomline is the first marker I ever purchased and I'd like to upgrade it into a pump. I purchased a used azodin kp and love playing pump now. That being said, I know this will take work and I'm ok with that - buying a pump is not my solution or reason for this.
I've gone through on eBay and I notice a lot of rebel frames and upgrade bolts and whatnot for sale. I will eventually be using those.
I feel comfortable with converting the internals (hammer and bolt) but my confusion comes with the actual pump (not connecting to the bolt) and cleanly preventing the blow back.
I don't want to buy a pump kit, I'd enjoy the process of manufacturing my own. I feel I can't get all the necessary parts between Lowes and Home Depot here in Fairbanks. I'm also trying to avoid purchasing too much online because a pump kit can cost $25 and the shipping will be $30 just because I'm outside the 48 contiguous states.
I've seen some of the "spump" guides but I'd like a little more detail on the pump handle and how that works along with stopping the blow back properly and without harm to the gun.
I am also using a $10 spyder xtra I found as a trial run
Had to mention that in case there is one other 32 degrees Rebel fan out there that will curse my paintball career!
Thanks in advance
