Pballer413's past and present guns

Twistr Geo 4, the Geo 3.5 has been one of my favorite guns to shoot so when I saw the Geo 4 coming out I was very interested to try one but figured I would wait to get something used. When I saw the Twistr Geo 4 coming out I knew that I wanted to add it to my collection.



Purge Scenario Game Blast Camp Paintball


Planet Eclipse
Air Assault Paintball Veterans Day Guns, I was in the Marines and my office is a mix of military and paintball so military themed paintball markers just seem like a fit.
Quote from Air Assauly regarding the Markers
“Here at Air Assault Paintball we remember Veterans Day every year. Veterans Day is not only a public holiday dedicated to honoring United States military, it was also is a day to remember the end of World War I. Every year Veterans Day falls on November 11th and is not to be confused with Memorial Day. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all Military Veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering fallen men and women who gave their lives while in service. Although there is no mail service on this day we will be open for paintball play. In honor of both our current and fallen military Air Assault Paintball has released multiple limited edition Planet Eclipse veteran paintball markers since 2009. Two of the most memorable editions being the USMC EGO 11 and the POW*MIA LV1”

POW MIA LV1.5 (1 of 12). This is the first gun I have bought new since the release of the Ion. I wish it was released in the rising sun theme as well but beggars can't be choosers I guess. I paired this up with a pair of CSL screws and barrel tip. This is my main marker.


Game Play at Living Legends 11


POW MIA LV1 Rising Sun (1 of 12). I really like the rising sun version of this and would keep this over my LV1.5. May make a few changes to this eventually but instantly one of my favorites and will most likely be my main gun this year.



United States Marine Corps EGO 11 (1 of 12). Designed by Gary Reiersen and produced exclusively by Planet Eclipse for Air Assault Paintball. I searched for this gun for years. I am still working on my “man cave” which will be a blend of paintball and Marine Corps so this is the perfect piece for me. Currently has two matching barrel backs, CSL screw kit, DART Kit, and some custom Walnut grips that I designed/made



Gameplay at 3rd annual Halo game at Commando Paintball


Rising Sun POW MIA Geo (1 of 12). This marker was the second marker in my collection. The "rising sun" POW is on of my favorite designs. This was my main marker for years, I upgraded it with IV core has three barrel backs and shoots great. Recently retired as I am using my LV1.5 as my main




Had a teammate using this for Commando Paintballs Star Wars


Apocalypse Geo 3 (1 of 15) made for Paintball Revolution.

Joy Division Geo 3.5 The Geo 3.5 is one of my favorite shooters and I really like the anno on the Joy Division guns. Happy to add this one to my collection.



My ODD 07 Ego #21 Juggernaut





My ODD Collection for those not familiar with Odis Driftwood Designs they use to offer very custom designs for guns. I generally don't feel the (1 of 1 guns) due to lasering or anno but I do hold ODD guns on a different level. If you would like to see more of their work http://oddpb.wordpress.com/ is a site that is kind of a tribute to them and the other guns that they did.

EMEK if you haven't shot one of these guns you are missing out. I pack this for every game now as my bad weather / low paint / loaner / fun gun. I was honestly surprised how smooth they shoot probably swing for a pops eventually but for the money it is a great gun

Aurora Luxes

DLX Luxe Nebula Plated (1 of 1 Test Gun from factory) Stole some information from prior owners because they had done some research and added some of my own findings below.

Justice Paintball stated that there was originally 3 aurora/nebula plated markers came from factory (1 was a test body for aurora; 1 was a test body for Nebula, and the 3rd was a fully completed Luxe in aurora). The one I have pictured below is the Test Body for Nebula.

Through my own research I see that a user on pbnation cutstep (no longer active) appears to have been the one doing the aurora for ODD at the time. He mentions that aurora plating can peel and anyone that has owned or seen the aurora 07 ego parts may have witnessed this. Cutstep mentions if applied properly you wont have this issue and I will say that this Luxe has been applied correctly, it shows definite wear to the point of the aurora finish looking chrome where it was handled heavily but there are no signs of pitting or flaking on the gun. In Cutstep's thread he does state that he did a luxe for Darryl trent which would coincide with the information from TorontoCore and Justice Paintball.

Nebula I got this gun in and TorontCore had done some modernizing but I wanted to do a bit more. I part swapped the frame from a gloss black OLED Luxe so this is now an OLED all the way around except the body and eye covers





Bad pic but game pic at Battlefiled Paintball in Osseo WI


See above, this was one of the three test bodies as well (the aurora) only seemed fitting to end up back where it belonged. Since I brought the Nubula up to speed I wanted to do the same with the Aurora. I bought a white OLED but I wasn't happy with the combo so I ended up getting a T800 OLED Luxe and swapped the bodies. End result pretty shiny but I am pretty happy with the looks.




All Americans Adrenaline Shocker I really liked the anno on these when I first saw them released paid more than I would have like but was happy to get one in my collection. Great shooting marker, I also ordered an Adrenaline Luxe to go into my collection whenever that is finished



Played a local scenario game that was magfed only (or 10 round tubes)


(1 of 9) Infidel Shocker in my search to get more private labeled milled markers I was happy to come across this. I still like the Adrenaline shocker more due to the anno but still a cool piece to have in the collection.

Cocker

Just got this cocker in and it really is a team gun that I am very happy to hold on to. Paintball to Go in Roodhouse IL had a scenario game Battle on Monte Casino that Dan Colby and Bud Orr both generaled at the last two years. The team I am on played both years and this year the field hosted a "Top Gun" pump tournament the night before the game started. They took 50 volunteers and gave us all Sniper auto cockers and we played 1v1 to see who would be the Top Gun. The team I am on SAS Yeti Squad entered almost all of our players to increase our chances of winning even though most of us have never played pump but fortunately the plan worked and the final match was two of our players playing against each other. The guy that won the gun is not a big cocker guy so he knew myself and another teammate would really appreciate it. Bud said he thinks this is a one of three in this fade and this one was never issued out and came with the box that both Bud and Dan Colby signed at the event.






Flame I bought this as a pitted chrome Flame with a red anno and a "barn yard find" Marker was in pretty rough condition so I decided I would get it rebuilt. I originally wanted to run it as a "rat rod" ugly plating and all but the guy I sent it to for rebuild talked me into stripping it and going with a straight gloss black anno. Rebuilt with an Inception Regulator, Inception ASA and Reail, Shocktech Bolt and Push Pin, Shockteck Phuematic's, Shockteck Ball Detent, Shocktech Beavertail, Shocktech Trigger Shoe, Shocktech Timing Rod, Shocktech Internals. Not exactly stock but I figured I would
Before

After





Flame Autococker Project, when I bought my first flame autococker the chrome was flaking a bit and I planned on getting it rebuilt and running it as is. The guy rebuilding it had a great price on anno and I kind of went with it and did the Black Flame above. I kind of regretted getting it annodized so when I had the chance at another Flame autococker with the fade I was happy to get it. Story on this one was hanging in the rafter at a field for years, came in from out of the country in a box but I had a teamate rebuild it for me. Has some flaking but I plan on running it as a "Rat Rod"




(1 of 10) Plated Karnivor



Inception Designs (1 of 50) Twistr Autocockers with a tri fade anno. This thing may make me put my Emek into retirement.

Dye Ultralight "Creamsicle" this is one of those markers I always stared at as a kid even though I wasn't a cocker guy. I knew I would want one in my collection eventually and was happy to add this one. I do have the stock asa as well just need a new on off screw for it.



Ripper Resurrection, I really like the milling on these bodies, immediately bought this body when they came out this was a sniper for a bit but I am not a pump guy so was happy to get it converted to mechanical.


Had a teamate converted it to Mech for me


White Wolf Airsmith Ripper E-Blade



PPS Nasty Typhoon

Axe/Empire

Last Twistr Bodies discovered. BPS Sold 4 Twistr Bodies as individual bodies each in a one off anno. I bought three of the 4 and found the 4th on the market. My teamate is a huge axe collector so I sold him one of the 4 but I have the other 3 1 off splash anno's done by BPS.

1 of 50 bodies done it a 1 off Factory Anno by BPS.


Gameplay at Blast Camp Paintball "The Purge"


My second 1 of 50 bodies done it a 1 off Factory Anno by BPS Splash bodies referenced above


Gameplay from Blastcamps Battle of Hoth



My Third 1 of 50 bodies done it a 1 off Factory Anno by BPS Splash bodies referenced above



Twistr Axe (1 of 50) raw body will be an anno project at some point



Vanquish SSX (1 of 40) To stay with the Boston Paintball Theme I bought one of the SSX Vanquishes. I wasn't the biggest fan of the lasering on the first one that I bought so when I saw this one come up I figured the Red White and Blue kind of fit my collection a bitt better



“USMC” Axe Pro. Unfortunately this gun is in my collection because I would be to embarrassed to sell it. There was a user on here that was offering free laser to a certain amount of users as a proof of work. He did 5 jobs and I was the 5th free one. After seeing the others I was hopeful, he asked me for some ideas before hand, and I though it would be a good color to do a military theme with. I sent a few pictures for ideas as he asked and unfortunately the pictures look pixelated and there was no other lasering done so it looks pretty empty as well. I sent an axe for a reason and it was free so I won’t complain (other then here) but some day I may need try to, send in for additional lasering

Bob Long

Bob Long Marq, honestly not a gun I really thought I would have in my collection but I liked the anno work and figured it was a pretty neat piece to have






Aurora Ripper 2.5





I don't know as much about Timmy's as I would like. The A-Bomb and Naughty Dogs have always been some of my favorite millings available on these. I did have a new Ripper in candy apple red project that I sold in 2017 since I wasn't able to build it at that time and I regret to this day.

A-Bomb Timmy, have had few of these come and go and always had intentions to get them anno'd but have been dragging my feet for a few years don’t let the collection fool you I am cheap). This one is in good condition and I intend to get it anno'd eventually but I think it still looks good for the time being. Again this marker came out in 2004 and I believe was the lightest intimidator of the series.
Well I finally sent one out for anno pics following the progress and review will be below when I have them.



Naughty Dogs



DragonProject this gun needs to be rebuilt completely. I bought this in a lot with 14 other Timmy's and while I was going through them my at the time 4 year old daughter who loves dinosaurs and dragons said she would buy it. I told her to get her money and she paid 35 cents for it she has since bought a dye cf barrel with PGA green tip that kind of matches the gun. I guess this will be her upgrade from the ebolted 98

Dye/Proto/Matrix

-My ODD Proto #41 I remember seeing this on ODD"s site when they were around and it made me decide that I would send something in for them to do work on one of mine. Unfortunately when I got out of the marine's they were no longer around, so when I saw this come up for sale I was excited to get it. I was told by previous owner that it has never been used in a game before and it looks that way.
cp reg
cp on off
cp barrel (someone has two matching backs that were parted when sold)
Hater board
orange bolt








IM9 Claret & Champagne (my favorite colorway the came in) I first saw the IM9's when a friend showed me a picture right before we came back from Iraq (forgot the magazine but this was in 2009). I saw this exact color IM9 and decided I would buy one. I was deployed for most of 09 so I wasn't able to get a new one but I did eventually get one in my collection. I have had a few other IM9's as well (Ice and the black and red). This one is in great cosmetic condition the crosses are still red which always faded on these.


Boom M2 M2's are great shooters although I didn't plan on keeping one in my collection. This one does have some sentimental value to me as Boom is a local team and back in the day I used to play against and even with them in a few tournaments. So to see all these years later that they had their own marker figured I would keep one around.


Vintage Paintball Milled Dye M2 This is not a marker I thought I would own (not something I was really going after) but a local player had it and offered it to trade so still something unique to add to the collection.



Smart Parts

Shockers I remember when the ads for the first SFT shocker came out, it was instantly the coolest gun in my opinion. Half my team switched I couldn't afford the switch but I have always owned a shocker since I started collecting. I owned almost all the PL bodies (never had a Gmax or Pre Cup strange) at one point but never used them so I sold them. Now I just have the few in my collection

Signature Series NXT Project shocker. Recently saw the signature series Angel Fragoza Ghetto Superstar 006 for sale and scooped it up.




Galaxy Dynasty NXT



SFT Dynasty Shocker



Dynasty Ion wanted to convert this to a mech...eventually

Joker Ace these are sometimes referred to as the poor man's Westwood as it has the 5 scoops. This one is in a Factory anno of dark blue to light blue with a white splash. Pretty awesome marker missing the stock barrel but great looking marker



Airstar Nova 700 these are project markers that I hope to get to someday the anno on them is just awesome so I will keep one for my collection for sure

Equalizer


Since I have really slimmed down the collection and separated my jerseys to a separate thread I figured I would put some other odds and ends that I have that I don't come by to often.

I referenced it earlier about wanting to make my own grips for my markers. I have still been working on it have a few "testers" ready now

CSL Clear Acrylic


Walnut Grips for My POW Geo


USAF Grips for Bomber Geo

2nd set



Mirrored Acrylic for an SLS with writing showing through


Clear acrylic for my custom annod A-Bomb since I didn't want to hide the anno.


Herring Bone Tile look for 09 Ego


Grass Growing (bloodsplatter) Ego 11's Grips

More Customer Grips I am working on

Piccolo Grips for Ion


Barrels

White and Gold CF Boomstick these are pretty limited in carbon fiber back I believe you could only get them with the NT originally I planned on using this with the CSL tip but never got around to getting the adapter


CSL 16' Tip use to have both but got an offer I couldn't refuse on the 14' so just have the 16 in my collection now. have been using the Parabolic barrel system so this mainly stays in a case


Aradus Barrel I actually just recently learned about these. They have a control bore based on a rotating system (similar to the apex) but it changes the bore of the barrel. I have not used it in a game yet I have heard it had issues but was still an interesting piece to add to the collection




Stainless Steel ultralight back


Dye TI back


Freak Stainless Steal back


PMI Clear barrel pictured with the spyder to cocker converter


Ramrod spyder threaded


Barrel Condoms I have shelf of barrel condoms from over the years but pictured below are a few that I have come across that I don't see often

Aardvark


Keely Watson this barrel condom just screamed 2000's paintball to me from the splat magazine to Keely was one of the few barrel condoms I bought for more than I would be willing to admit


Smart Parts (Bea Youngs) I met Bea briefly at the Challenge for Children a few years ago and she seemed very nice, I actually bought one of her jerseys for my collection and wanted to add the barrel condom as well. The other two smart parts girl condoms are there but really aren't to hard to find and don't mean much to my collection

Freak
