So, after the tourney today, while the finals were being played I swapped parts with my friend. Its now gloss red with dust red parts, although my crappy camera makes that tough to see. I've got other macro just haven't put it on yet, and I've got stock grips but can't use them. Also got a new button pad since it didn't have one on it before.

I'll be ordering a set of grips like Muddy had on his SL66 soon, but in a different custom design. I'm loving the color scheme, and a teammate of mine has an dust red with gloss red parts SL74, so we've our guns are cousins. :) It shot great at the tourney today, and good thing, because its gonna be my gun for most of the 08 season.

I've got black macro on it now. I prefer the yellow macro just because I love random macro colors, but black will do.

For grips, Dark Seoul or whoever makes the custom ones Muddy got. I've already got a design, just need some $$$ to order them.

good, i was hoping to see you do that rather than ruin the class of the sl66 with some trashy whore / gangbanger grips or whatever is new with hybrid

Dark Seoul makes them, Stinger Paintball distributes them.

Have you thought about red macro fittings from Hobby? Silver ones are kinda killing it for me considering there is nothing else silver on the gun accept for the bolt pin and thinger on the ASA...

Color macro fittings are ugly IMO.

Either you keep vomiting on your keyboard and can't see (or your fingers keep slipping) or you seriously just enjoy typing like that and non-intentionally irritating the piss out of me.

I liked the colored fittings on Bamf's guns... ...and the black ones on my MR1 look great.

To each their own I guess.

Its mostly the fact that it probably won't match. Black is hard to not match, but other colors have variations. The reason why I don't have red macro is it doesn't match. It matches my Shocktech Timmy, but not my SL66.

Send the gun to me and I will send you back some matching fittings, but of course I will need to keep the marker. I will send just the fittings :)

Nice marker buddy.

I'm backing BAMF here - stop the spamming or else.

Oscum, it bothers me as well, and this isn't your personal blog or chat room. It isn't as easy to read to the rest of us and is quite annoying to MANY people, based off of pm's I personally have received. You've had a vacation of sorts already for this behavior. Personally, I wouldn't push it so close to having come back, but if you believe in Freedom of Speech, by all means keep at it!

Ace, this kind of thing needs to go to the PMs. While many may agree with you, it just breeds arguments and things we don't need to do have around here.

BAMF - :p

Timmy - Caps lock is on the left side of your keyboard. Sheesh! :moon:

I see what you mean about the fittings probably not matching... it'd be too much hassle to get them annoed the exact same color.

I wish they had a larger variety of colors for macro...


...or even designs. Wouldn't it be cool to get some black macro with Japanese print it in white? Or other things like the Louis Vuitton(sp) designer stuff.

Maybe they should stop developing guns that they feel are 'better' and more on accessories and little things like macro. Hehe. :p

colored fittings are powdercoated.


ok you guys win, i guess ill start using the longer, grammatically correct speech.


vike- you have been gettin pm's about me? wow. i just received a pm from the pumper stating the following:

Edited as PMs are exactly that - private messages. They don't need to be made public....

Ace24

I'm pretty sure they are annoed... The black ones I have are not powder coated.

In fact, due to the anno, there is a small leak in them because they don't seal all the way... I've got to talk to Hobby about that.

Oscum Guy
11-08-2007, 05:35 PM
pretty sure they are powdercoated because they are made from brass and you can only anno ss and al.


edit: checked the site, and yes youre right, they are made from al and annoed. i could have swore he used to powdercoat brass fittings tho

Ace24

Lol you had me worried about your sanity for a second there. :p

They make brass barbs... maybe that's what you're thinking of?

Oscum Guy
11-08-2007, 05:58 PM
hobbyhorse fittings are probably just alot better than mine because mine are made from brass.

and imo brass is like the most pointless metal ever used. everything that it is used to make, can be made better with other metals. well most.

Yes, and I'm sure I'm not the only mod that's received them. This ought to tell you something, if you put some thought into it.

We appreciate the fact that you're going to try harder and type in a more respectable manner, not in the "chat" type anymore, nor spamming the way you have in the past. That sort of speak falls under the old "AGG" that quickly became so uncool in like what, a matter of days? When you present yourself in a more respectful, and respectable, manner, people will reciprocate in like fashion. On the internet, since no one knows you, this is always the better decision.

Now, back on track - I think I may need to get a set of those colored fittings. Just for a change, that is!

I don't know - I saw some on some of BAMF's guns, and they don't look half bad. Sort of goes with the flow, so to speak...

11-08-2007, 06:43 PM
i would only get the black ones. bamfs look a little different than the new ones.


man this grammatically correct stuff takes forever to type!
