Experimentation with Digital Tigerstripe; whatcha think? by wookie
What Kind of paint did you use for your gun? I've used flat black Rustoleum spray paint (the kind they use for bar-b-ques), among other brands, for my own custom gun projects and the stuff literally disolves and turns to sludge when it comes in contact with paintball paint. How well does the paint on your apoxie sculpt hold up to a paintball hit or splatter?Originally Posted by famousgamer
Spray paint on a paintball marker sucks any way you slice it. I am sure there is some nice stuff out there, but I have not seen it yet. Duracoat is the best. Regular spray paint is bad.Originally Posted by ghost flanker
I sanded EVERY part that was painted and it still chipped, flaked, and scratched off. Really what I am talking about is the Q Loader not accepting paint. The sculpted areas are not bad.
To do my camo I use adhesive vinyl sheets that have been custom printed with the camo of my BDUs. I heat gun em on.
The Apoxie Sculpt can take a hit like any other plastic component, as it is a plastic in essence. It is fairly lightweight, and is very strong. Sanding it into the desired smoothness is quite easy and long as you have a fair bit of skill in the area. It is actually ten times easier to just paint the Apoxie parts you make, as it accepts paint very well. The marker and Q Loader do not. Betweent he vinyl layer and the durability of the Apoxie parts I am confident it will hold up to some serious stress.
That pic makes a pretty strong agruement for the Spec Ops marauder pattern. It looks pretty good in the forest there that you are in MT.Originally Posted by mt84
I am Canadian too, and I wish I liked CADPAT more, but I find it too dark. It is too bad because all the darker stuff looks cooler!
I was just at a Marine base in Hawaii and it was nice to see soem MARPAT around the place. Their official pattern has less blotches in it as opposed to alot of knock off patterns out there, so buyer beware. It was also interestign to see the varying degrees of wear and fading in the Marpat pattern. It actually appears to get better as it gets older, as the colors settle down and become very natural.
nice mask ... any other tactical mag projects out there?
well my tac emag is coming along really slowly due to lack of funds but i did make a rain gaurd that works better than i could have ever imagined
My Version of a Tatical Classic 68.
Missing in the picture is the M4 collapsible stock.
Know what i think this guy has you all beat
Thats the Elite Super UBER ZOMFG WTF Tactical mod there....
if only it shot paintballs
famousgamer has a sweet gun and sweet tats!!! good job, and nice tats
had to dig up this treasure
Dude, I just realised something. So, I know I havn't been on for like a **** long time, but dude, your marker looks like the pistol "Matilda" from Resident Evil 4. The thing that is even funnier, if you upgrade "Matilda" all the way up with exclusive, it holds 100 rounds. This is funny because not only does your marker look like Matilda (in so many ways it lacks humor), it also holds the exact number of paintballs as Matilda does rounds (with the Q-pod and all).
my version of a tactical mag:
Classic Automag 68
Warp right body
Proteam adaptor 10 round stick feed
Palmer Sideline Stabilizer
Taso 8" pro series SS barrel
Taso sight rail
modded B-Square Air Gun Adapter dovetail to weaver
20 rounds per 12 gram
that is pretty cool
does the stabilizer help with Co2 usage
indeed it doesOriginally Posted by paintball_fiend
without the stabiizer i was frosting out at 12 shots at 1 per second
with the stabilizer it will shoot 20 before the pressure is too low to recock
verrrrrrryyyy nice work doc
put that in for the next motm
So I finally got around to taking a picture of my Tactical style automag.
I swapped out the rail that came with the Tac-One for a classic rail to mount the stock, otherwise its your basic Tac-One with Longbow magazine system. The stock's angle provides perfect mask clearance for me.
those are some pretty nice setups. Ghost Flanker, that has got to be the best tac setup I've seen for a mag in a long time. I like the back Q-loader set up...reduces the profile to nill...you should seriously either patented it, or think about selling the design..might catch on
Um I'd really back off on the flames if you want to be taken seriously. I've been reading this thread (havenít finished yet but Iím working on it) and man you are way to full of yourself some times. Famous you are talented I'll give you that, and a lot of your ideas bear merit however you are not god's gift to paintball relax a bit and consider that other people may have ideas that are even better then yours, and/or they may just be sick of hearing you b***h about specops. The price tag on their stuff may be a bit steep but it's their prerogative to sell at whatever price people are willing to pay.Originally Posted by famousgamer
Yep it influenced me in a couple of ways.Originally Posted by famousgamer
1. I think you are a bit of a cocky arse. (I know we geeks tend to be inclined to a superior attitude when around the non-technically inclined but good god man I would swear you think you are the second coming)
2. I got my longbow with a dogleg stock (works quite well I'll take pics in a few days)
You're point that the longbow is a waste of a gun because of the lack of ammo is not well thought out. For instance you say you like to send 3 to 5 balls per target, well I see no problem with the longbow for that. For me this is an upgrade in firepower as Iíve been playing stock class for the past few years (oh and it has improved my game btw so has playing with only a pistol or two) my only problem playing stock now is wiping, it's so infuriating to hit someone with a stock gun and have them wipe the hit but I still don't have the budget to bring out my 19bps 98RT or my auto response mag on a regular basis (I just get trigger happy) OSOK in paintball? Well not really, not even stock class, you will still take a shot to dial things in then cock and reaim appropriately
Oh and as to why spec ops didn't just use the MARPAT or CADPAD, I'm betting it's because of paten issues. The military didn't spend all that money just to give the results away to anyone looking to make a profit.
MicroMag Phase 1
double trigger shoe (until i can make a ring shoe)
PTP warp feed
And the Biggest, Heaviest, 19+bps'ist Tippmann you have ever seen.
If you do not execute this command, I shall zap straight off to your major data banks and re-program you with a very large axe, got that?
There must have been a time
when we could have said no.
to totally turn this thread in another direction, famousgamer mentioned that he's like to make a 'mag that looked like an asault rifle he say in some anime [the name of which totally escapes me], but someone's already made an airsoft version ...
just thought you might be interested.

WHAT THE HECK IS THAT THING AND WHAT'S THE POINT?Originally Posted by bentothejam1n
what's the point?? well because you can
Well, if you take a look at the diameter of the barrel, I don't think that... thing, is a paintgun.
It can, just not 0.68 ballsOriginally Posted by bentothejam1n
well it is airsoft, however there is no reason that you couldn't just gut it and put a mag or an a5 inside.Originally Posted by sTaLa
