    Yeah, I guess all things considered it is a bit of a misnomer to call it a ule

    Someone send me a solid bar of gold and I will make you a ule body
    Out of it for free if I can have the chips.lol
    Especially as the copper oxidizes(is that the right term?) and turns green...

    So a measly 7oz, or less than a half a pound, maybe right at 8 once you add the feedneck and detents. Looks like I better hit the gym.

    debruynda you just described basically the exact cocker I've wanted since 96 or 7. Except no AA comp air tank. I want a nitroduck megareg on it

    I'm using A OEM classic rt now. So the weight of this wouldn't phase me at all. And it is unique. So I love it.

    They are still out there The guy that owns the field I play at has one that is just sitting around. I've been after him to sell it so if he does I'll let you know and you can have dibs on it.

    So how did you handle the impact of the bolt?
    enough cycles and the breach may start getting mushroomed or deformed...
    Stainless Steel Bushing?

    Classic mag with AA. Apocalypse and 114 tank. SS boomer. Brass would seem light.
    I took the road least traveled...now where the hell am I ?

    I've not really been searching because I'd be tempted to buy. As much as I've always wanted one. Mags are so much easier to mess with. Hence using mags since the mid 90s instead of cockers.

    Well here it is.

    Just shot it...what can I say XMT. I love it. Looks real good on the black mag too

    It is noticeably heavier when compared to my ule rt pro body you did but once mounted it is feels really well balanced.

    So if i send you the "cannon" project I've had for ten years you might could make me one of these? Cast brass and of large enough dia.? started to dress it down then lost use of the leathe due to the company shuting down. Cannon got benched so now maybe I got a use for this chunk of brass? Maybe a minimag style body with Dallara tail? Long brass sluggo? Brain damaged hallucination?LSD Flashback? "Charlie's coming!!!!" You still haven't said if you'd take on an alum. sydarm body project either.

    My first paintball marker was a Rap4 T68. Compared to that, playing with brass is not that bad. You have to keep in mind that it's not solid on the inside.

    Here is my mirror polished T2 for reference:



    You honestly don't notice it when playing. Granted the bulk of my weight sits in my frame which makes it very stable in my hands.

    If there was a small run of these mag bodies, I might be interested in picking one up.
