Well I decided a while back to leave woodsball, but now I want back in, and I wanted to have a little project going before school is in session.

So I traded an airsoft Ak-47 for:

PMI Mech marker
20in Sniporz Barrel:D
M16 Grip Handle (For my Tippmann thats in the mail)
Aimpoint Site (For my Tippmann thats in the mail)
Flashlight (For my Tippmann thats in the mail)

I already owned the stock so it's good to go, just need some small modifications, and it's good to go.

Yes that's electrical tape, and yes thats a quantam loader.

It weighs around 4 lbs, and is 37.5inches in length.

Unbelievably this took me around 3 hours for everything to be finished.
The inletting was pretty easy. All I used was a pencil, knife, and sandpaper to do it. It is a bit wobbly, but I'll just give one or two tight wraps of electrical tape on the barrel for a good snug.
I used two light coats of matte black spray paint, and used a light circular motion sandpaper to get the look I wanted.

The bad part of this whole project is I forgot to make a slit near the back for the vlocity adjuster :D. So that's my future plan, along with some ghillie rifle wrap.


Comments are welcome.

I have no idea. All I know is it's a 3 piece long ass barrel.

I'd try and fabricate a strap to go from one side of the wood stock, over the top of the paintball gun, and to the other side of the wooden stock. Attach it with screws and keep the marker tight in the stock. My initial thoughts would be; plumbing perforated strap, electrical conduit 2 hole strap, or plumbing 2 hole strap. Paint it black and it would blend in nicely.
As for the trigger location; can you notch out the stock so that the gun can sit farther back in it? Maybe so that the trigger would be closer to the grip of the buttstock.
Line the inside of the wood with tennis raquet grip tape- soft, sticky/grippy, and cheap. (Gamma grip is good) That will give a snug fit and protect the finish of the paintball gun.
There you have it, my ghetto mod thoughts! :)

Wtf? They do not lose distance. That's the ONLY thing you gain by a longer barrel, and it's only by a few feet. The air required to push it that far is what your losing.

:mad:

Well I finished it in under 4 hours with a pencil, knife and sandpaper.

IMO it turned out very nicely.
I'm gonna see if I can shoot it sometime tomorrow.

The very last 2 pictures.

Currently I'm trying to make a Velocity Adjuster Soot where I can mess with the velocity and not take the entire thing apart.

you gain distance up to a point say 14 inches or so, after that, the extra length only causes unneeded friction. think of it as spreading butter too thin on a piece of toast.

looks good for getting it done in 4 hours

That trigger frame is killing me hahaha.

Too bad there is no way to do an electrical remote setup or... wait there is!

You could have a e-trigger back at the wooden handle, run wires through the wood and into the chopped off e-frame in the normal area that would trip the sear. Hmmm...

Well unfortunately I snapped the frame while trying to make the Velocity Adjustment Soot.
No problem, I'll just try and find another one.

Well I decided to just screw with the snapped frame and it turned out better than I expected.(Pic in the first post).

I wrapped it with alot of electrical tape, and it didn't work that well, so currently I'm gorilla gluing the frame to it. Should be finished sometime tomorrow night.

And I was bored so I made a shroud out of a crappy airsoft gun.
