Did he ever mention what he used to make the stock? I PMEd him a couple times in the past but he never replied.
Certainly thought of it before. You could even make a functional magazine out of a Qloader. If you based it on the RT valve you could really mow people down with that.Originally Posted by DanMan
If you dig through the thread, you'll see what he used in detail, and how he made it. The stock is made of a store-bought air-through stock (the top part) with custom molded plastic for aesthetics and comfort (which he crafted himself.)Originally Posted by cyrus-the-virus
His build inspired the Park-52 Mag, which is using a nearly identical rear setup (except my stock is at 0 degrees, and his stock is at 15 degrees), and I'll be putting the air on the FRONT of the marker, under the barrel, instead of a remote setup. Before we get into lengthy discussions about weight, I'll be using 3.5 oz tanks.
I know all that except what kind of plastic he used. "Custom molded plastic" doesen't tell me much,Originally Posted by Bagheera
This is what he used.The white you see on the Profiler is a base layer of white epoxy putty, called Aves Apoxie Sculpt. Its excellent stuff. I do the final detail layer with green epoxy putty, called "green stuff". It is what my girlfriend uses to sculpt miniatures with, and it holds detail very well..
I have the Longbow Stock and I needed to make it about 2" longer cause I have gorilla arms. (hence, "Silverback", ) I like this adapter, are you using aluminum bar stock, or steel?Originally Posted by famousgamer

I Know why his head is bent, he is using his RIGHT EYE to sight, while shooting LEFT handed. (I know because I'm LEFT EYED and have to turn my head when shooting my pistol, rifle or paintball gun RIGHT HANDED, but not when I shoot LEFT HANDED.Originally Posted by famousgamer
HMMMM, who's fudging whoses pictures?
Well, being that none of those pictures were originally posted by him, I'd say, um, not him.Originally Posted by Silverback
Oh, and he won't reply, I don't think he comes here anymore. Which is why I find it funny that everyone necroposts this thread asking him questions... Check right above the picture, though, he says he's using a bent aluminum bar.
The big reason why the head is not tilted is simply the height of the red dot sight. If you notice, the SpecOps setup has a shroud on top of a vertical feed, and then a sight on top of that. It's much higher, and easier to get your head behind. However, it doesn't lend itself well to a low profile, as compared to a side feed and the sight with no riser directly on top of the body.
However, this is a good thread to necro, as it has a lot of good ideas being bantered about.
That appears to be the bipod I mailed to famousgamer in exchange for the custom bottomline mount and butt-stock. Never heard from him since. Shame.

No kidding, he really disappeared after this thread. I was hoping for a whole revolution of light'n'tight low-profile classic 'mags; FamousGamer inspired my build to a great degree, and I've gotten PMs from multiple people telling me my build inspired theirs. Cool stuff, I think this style setup is awesome and it even seems to be catching on a bit, but the guy who really started it just dropped off the radar. Still a trip down memory lane whenever someone bumps this thread, though.Originally Posted by borph
ill take a look at this on a later date
Where can i get the PRO classic, and does it have the RT.
HELLO WARRIORS. Its been a long time i have posted here. Finally I have built the Ultimate woodsball Marker!! Hundreds was spent to make this happen. If you do not believe me look at my previous posts. unfortunately there is no such thing as the paintball sniper. Primary all paintball shoot the same distance. so I opt to be more flexible. The longbow is only design for one role and on role only. Once your opposition is aware of your whereabouts. You have very little time to fight back, the gun is big and cumbersome. I have used the LONG BOW, QBOW, WARPFEED, all have its disadvantages and advantages. so i took a little bit from every setup and came up with this setup:
this setup is very adaptable, you can crawl and play the sniper role. plus have the firepower and line of sight to lay down proper shots. low profile, light and most of all serviceable. this setup can be disassemble with allen keys and with hand screws enjoy!
BACK IN THE GAME.
That's pretty cool man.Originally Posted by LONEWOLFOO1

i need to read this last few posts
Afterbuying a cool wire stock for my Tippmann 98 I realized this. The new stock requires a new sighting arrangement ....so more accesories.........and dollars spent.For every rifle style stock Special Ops makes, they sell another off set sight mount, or overly huge sight riser to compensate for the lack of mask clearance... and they are not honest about the fact that their stocks like that are primarily for looks, not function. They are gouging, and I dont like it.
A soft face mask can help somewhat with this problem. The other problem is the inherent paintball inaccuracy ............ so sighting is somewhat unnecessary. Its taken me a whole season to learn to watch the paintball flight vs the sights.
this is why i made the gun the why i made it today. full function.
They pretty much fixed any problems with the main idea with the dogleg air-through stock. It just goes around the mask. I have one on my a-5 and it works great. Im moding one for my longbow and it should fix any line of sight problems.Originally Posted by LONEWOLFOO1
