So call me crazy, but I love clean straight lines on paintball bodies. If fact I tend to collect guns that have very square lines. Here are some examples from my collection:
I really like how flat and straight all the lines are on those gun. I have always liked very "Square" guns so I've made it a point to pick up all the guns I've always wanted since I started playing back in 1995 that were square and had clean lines.
I wanted to take my love of "Square" guns and marry it with my love of Automags. So I set out to find the "Squarest" parts for mags and build myself a square mag. Well little did I know that this journey would take me down 2 very different paths...
Now I know she's not that pretty to look at right now, but I have great plans for this piece of metal. Basically it's a Tac Body that has been milled down to be very square and straight. The rail is a ULE RT rail that matches the body's lines very well. The emag battery case is in real bad condition cause the battery leaked and the acid burned it. I have a bid into a few places to get everything polished out and then I'm going to anodize it all a nice glossy black to let the lines really show cleanly. The trigger fame is going to be a surprise to both you and me. Stay tuned cause this little ugly duck is going to look great when all said and done.
This little gem was originally a mint vert Micromag 2k. I took a gamble and sent it out to be milled for both a clamping feedneck mod and to have the swirls milled off the sides. I've always wanted and loved these bodies, but hated the swirls on the side so I had them milled off. So far it looks pretty good, but the next part scares me the most. All older PTP Micromag bodies have "pressed" in steel rings which make them very difficult to get anodized. I'm working with an anodizer right now trying to find a way to get this body a nice glossy black. The forgrip was also milled down to be very square to match the body. I'm excited to see this one through. The trigger frame will be a surprise to just you cause I'm pretty sure I know how I want this one to look in the end, but stay tuned to see for yourself.
Just got back some parts from the Anodizer. Turns out they messed up a few parts and will being fixing them soon. For the time being here are some pictures to give an idea of what the Square Mag should look:
