The feed hose was split at the end and not long enough to cut it off and with Normandy only 4 days away, I created the tubing out of 3/4" pipe and fittings I had...

The pipe, where it meets the Warp at the bottom, was flared slightly into a kind of 'funnel' by setting a Ballpeen hammer in the end of the pipe and tapping it with a dead-shot mallet. This allows unrestricted feeding into the tube. A 90* elbow fits onto that and that fits onto a 45* elbow, which mounts onto the angle-feed. This provides a 'seamless' flow so that any sharp enges (that I might have missed) won't cut a ball.

I wrapped the entire contraption with electrical tape for now because I don't have time to mess with it any more this week.

Whutchya think??

Yep. I was going to use my Ion as my primary but we just received our orders and...well...let's just say I'm going to be in the field a loooooooooooooooong time...lol.

If I use my Ion, I'm going to be burning through the paint like there's no tomorrow...mostly because I have no self control when it comes to slowing my trigger fingers..:D ..

For me to be out in the field for an extended period of time, I need to conserve paint and air. My Ion's way more efficient than the Mag but the Mag is a slower shooter. I'd rather carry a spare 20 oz than a case of paint - especially since I made a 5+4 to mount on my vest. Any more paint and I won't be able to move...lol...

Haven't seen a warp feed in a couple of years! Carrying all that paint PLUS a warp fed mag - man, you better eat your Wheaties and bring an energy bar...

Better yet, since the tube was fixed up, put it in a back back, filled with paint and run it like that....remember to lift with your legs, not your back, LOL!

Mag looks great, by the way - I like the smooth look to those babies...

um...no. Unless of course we get the thunderstorms they are calling for...then you may just get your wish...lol.

Simple design, simple operation, closed bolt mechanism...old schoolness is a plus and you have to shoot one to be able to appreciate it.

Thanks and Ok.
Perhaps...I want to see how I like it first before I go selling it off. Besides..."Canukland" is going to cost you :D

I know, they are a dying breed it seems.

I'm plenty strong for the task...lol. I am, however, taking the energy bars for when I'm feeling the 80*F heat...lol.

You wouldn't be suggesting I create my own TurtlePack...now would you? :D
