I was thinking everyone is probably getting sick of me posting my ghetto mods on the thread "post a pic of your MR2" so i decided to make a thread where people who make home mods for there guns or any other PB equiptment can post it. So here it is feel free to post whatever mods or you make to your equiptment.

I guess I will throw a few pics of some of my land mines up to start the thread off.

I made one out of wood for my MP7 mod and it works very well I made it so it could push right in or be pulled out too a few diferent spots and lock in. I want to get some light small diameter pipe and make the same model out of steal or aluminum.

What did you make your stock out of? look forward to seeing pics either way.

The curved butt plate part is a thin piece of steel, like a shroud off of a grinder & the, the..... the part that connects that to the frame is some kind of bracket with holes drilled in it & like 1/4" thick steel.

slim and shady, that is a pretty cool APC

slim and shady, that is a pretty cool APC

Thank you I can hall a team of 6 (not including the driver) all of the people are fully geared and are all abel to shoot through 3" sniper ports that can be closed up if you receive to heavy of incoming fire. The large flaps on the side can also be flipped up for greater visibility and easier shooting, but most people just look out the plexyglass windows.
It works very well for taking troops behing the enemy to pinccer them or flank them, and of corse my personal faverit tactic is using it to take sniper teams across wide open spaces and insert them into the thick underbrush where they can do there work!
I also have a trailer that is kinda the same but only has 2 wheels. When i get the time I am going to build a mobil command center, or bunker out of it to pull behind the APC to, this will give me the ability to be taking in a team of 12 safly. But thanks again


I dont think im to cool for anything IntercepterMR2, I think my ghetto home mods just needed a place where there fugly nature wasnt cluttering up all that clean cut good lookin manufactured equiptment! This is home!

Here is my new mag set up for sniping. All I need to do is paint it and find a nice real light spring for it. The back comes off for easy cleaning via 2 screws so if you chop it can be cleaned out. The tub where the paint goes acts as a mag and just pulls out, I have 2 of them so I can switch on the go, or i can use those tiny ten round tubs to fill.

thats pretty cool. how many rounds can it hold?

thats pretty cool. how many rounds can it hold?


Each Magazine holds 21 balls. All in all it cost 5$ for the LB fitting and 5$ for 10 feet of electrical pvc (3/4) a wood dowl that I use to put in the coupler on the end cost nothing for such little amount and for each of the pvc couplers (thats whats on the end) cost .47cents. I can make like 10 or 11 mags off the langth of pipe I got so its real cheep to. Its fast to switch mags on the go light and very low profile. The only thing i couldnt find was a real light spring, something like Ariakon uses in there overloard pistol.


I forgot to post also that I got materials to make a winter ghuillie suit as well as a fall one. (Then I will have one for all seasons) I plan on starting that right away. i would apreciate if anyone would post an idea for a cool looking sniper shroud that I could use to continue my sniper mod!

Instead of a spring why dont you put a little tilt to it?

I didnt bring the stock home saturday but Ill get it monday & Ill get pics of my bipods since their on the carport when I do the stock.

I thought that with a spring i could help battel the blowback up the feedneck. I dont suspect that it would be much of a problem because of the lower rates of fire just thought it would help. Or if your in an urban setting shooting out a window ect. You work hard to get into position for that one shot, so when you pull the trigger and it pops you wanna make sure there is a round chambered!

I hope you get pics of your stock and bi-pods soon. I got the material today to make a steal version of my MP7 stock so I will try to get around to that in the next few days as well.

Drill holes in that LB to vent any blowback. It wont stop it 100% but will help.

I wouldnt drill holes, for the idea you are talking about for venting I could just shim up the cover on the back of the LB and it would do the same thing, I dunno still would like a spring!

11-26-2007, 03:08 PM
Ok, heres a shot of the stock at work. I still havent drilled the frame holes in the pic but I did a short time after I took this pic.

The way its sitting is now upside down. After pretending there was a frame to hold onto, I flipped it & adjusted it all the way down. It did kinda feel like having my DZ3 turned around it was so long.

Its to cold to go outside right now so yall have to wait one more day on the bipod pics & a better & maybe mounted pic for the stock.

whoa, i like the mag dude, but yeah all that homemade stuff? i love the homemade mods, it always seems to be so much cooler than the manufactured ones, im not sure why, but i guess its like what you said, its home! it adds a cool effect of the gun and you truly are making the gun your own. im going to have to try the mag thing that looks pretty swedish.

hey interceptor, do you actually use the red dot scope or is it more for looks? i've been thinking about getting one, but can't decide if it would be something that i would really use and i don't want to blow $30 for one and not use it.

The stock looks great ironmudder, good work.

You should try to make the mag InterceprorMR2, its real wasy like 7 min to make it, I havent found a spring to attach yet though so I will say 10 min. and about that in price to! so yeah great home made mod.

alabama I have a Walther 11 power red dot scope and use it all the time, it was a great investment and I sugest to anyone to get some form of sights. I dont regreat getting mine at all.

I actually use it, it works great if you get it right where your shots are. that took me a little while but it really helps in ambushing :D but if you want to be able to see farther, then i suggest you get a regular magnifying scope. Red dots dont magnify they just have a red dot where your shot is. but it works great for me!

I've thought about doing it but I just don't have the need right now. We play in some pretty heavy woods where it's mostly pine and some smaller brush, plus the games we all play are pretty short so by the time I go find a spot the game's almost over anyway. I do have a pretty popular guille on my remote pack that I made out of strips from my digi-camo shirt. Everytime we go out they just tag my lens the first chance they get to try marking me for the rest of the day but I got that fixed now...hahaha
you should post some pics of the rest of the suit.

slim and shady
12-02-2007, 07:48 AM
As I continue to do the suit I will post pics it takes a very long time though, this will be the theird one that i have made, they work great too I have actually gone through games without being disqualified due to a paint shoot. My kill rate isnt the highest usually around 20-24 but my deaths are always real low when i snipe. So they do work well.

The idea behind this suit was to simulate snow with tufts of grass and brush through it. Of corse everyone knows the ghullie isnt done untill you add small bits of branches grass and twigs from your environment.
When i get the whole suit done I want to go into different locations and get someone to take pics to show how well they work, but thats hard to tell through a camra unless you have a real expensive one. But I wanna try it anyway. When i get the snow one done my next one will be for fall then I have one for all seasons.

Ok here are those pic of the stock I built at work & bipod from a few years back. Remember how I said the stock was flipped from the pic above, well after mounting it, it set to low so flipping it back like in that pic it turned out good. I still need to adjust it out a little longer.

The feet are metal washers, legs are just some random steel rods & thepiece where the barrel sits is a cast iron fitting cut in half.

Aint no 'on-the-go' adjusting with this stock. 2, 1/2" wrenchs. Pull the nuts off & move it & put the nuts back on.

hey what did you make your sling out of?
its an old nylon carrying strap from a roller blade bag that i never use, and some standard army-issue 5-50 (or "parachute") nylon cord. the one end is threaded through the hole where the sight rail screw goes, and the other is threaded through the holes in the drop.

nice mods, do you use your strap alot? most people who have straps have heavy over assessorised(SP, to be honest im not even sure thats a word!) milsim markers.
i actually made that out of boredom one day and havent played with it yet. but i plan on using it a lot once i get done with the gun (mil-sim barrel & stock, bigger tank, and possibly a q-loader)

Well its cold outside and the homemade mods have come to a stop, until now. I purchesed me a furnice(SP) for my garage so I can work on my mods and also i bought a sawmill so im hopping that will help pull me in a little more cash for the mods i want to get. So hopefully I will start working on everything again soon.

I was also wondering if anyone has made any homemade grenade launchers that attach to your gun and arent the size of a house or weight twice as much?

It is a Trracer pump and there are a few homemade mods on it that I did tonight. I still need to get my sight back from my sister and throw it back on there. I want to get it ready for my next winter game. My MR2 dont do so well in the cold. Does anyone else have trouble with there MR not working well when the snow flies? (I do use HPA)

slim and shady
12-18-2007, 08:03 PM
Here is some more pics. I have made a folding bi-pod and added a 4x40 bushnell scope.

Break down of the pump....

-Fake silencer 12" (It is homemade doesnt break paint and isnt illegal because its fake. I was looking for something for crazy langth, long barrels just waist air so i went with a long long supressor shroud!)
-21 shot magazine X11 (I think thats plenty for a pump and they change instantly with no playing around. Thats also home made.)
-Folding Bipod (added stability and look, homemade)
-Vertical forgrip (I added this for those times you want to use the auto pump feture having a vertical grip lets the paint fly like 2X as fast. Or you can use the conventinal horizontal grip for a rifel like feel. The grip is homemade, well its a grinder handel that I attached to the pump mechanism, not really homw made.)
-4X40 Bushnell (works great but scopes like this arent as practical as red dots. Its more for look than ability or advantage.)
9oZ butplate (Just to finish off the look and add a littel more stability and it makes it more comfy.)


The overall langth of the entire marker is actually 3 feet and 4 inches. It scertinaly acheived the langth I was looking for and it turned out much like I hoped for so I think im pretty happy with this mod. It is actually light to I havent weighed it but compaired to my MR2 its real light.

hey, i found some REALLY cool and thick cardboard tubes to make fake silencers out of. i have 3 2 1/2 foot tubes,and the plastic end pieces are slightly larger than barrels, so if i can find a good way to attach them to the gun, would anyone be interested in one? i wouldnt charge much (mostly for the screws that i'll need to buy to clamp them to the gun and paint and labor). i have a pretty good idea of how it will work (just like any other slip-on barrel shroud) and i may experiment with length and the front opening (to prevent balls from hitting the sides).

hey chnk!! i made a grenade launcher out of PVC it is pretty "bad donkey" i don't have any pics of it though, its about 6 feet tall and can shoot anything with a diameter of less that 2 inches, or something like that, I mostly use it as a shotgun (sometimes use gravel and shoot at birds, pigeons, yeh i live on a farm)

it was really easy and cheep to make, i use hairspray to fuel it, thinking of upgrading to propane but i want to live so i will think about that later.

and yes i have electronics outside the handle, i usually have two batteries taped on, the triggers in pretty bad shape, i couldn't fit a battery inside because of the screw i had to put on to hold on the drop forward, its hard to explain so just trust me RODEOS RULE

and yes, i have WAAAAY too much free time on my hands...

i have enough material to make about 5 more (depending on the lengths). after i get back from vacation, im going to experiment with making a mock silencer before school starts (but i think the tubes are a little too big for it to look good). i want to get some rails for it, but i dont know where to find them cheap (unless ace can hook me up. he said he found his in a bargain bin, i believe). then im going to cut a bunch of vertical openings between the rails and make it look better. its too plain for my taste right now.

my next project is going to be an AK style flip-up stock that runs through the quick-strip pin, but i need to find a really strong metal rod...

Here is a quick tip to make your barrel water tight.

Go to your local hardware store and bring the ported section of your barrel if it is a two piece and the whole barrel if it is a one piece.

In the plumbing aisle look for clear flexible hose. Get a few feet of the hose that fits the barrel, you want a size that is a little bigger than the barrel.

Now look around for the tube your barrel came in, if you don't have it check your local paintball store (they usually have lots of extras). There should be two rubber caps on it. Those will be the ends of the barrel cover.

Take one and make a small X slice in the middle with a razor then take sharp scissors and make the opening round. The size of the hole should be just a little smaller than the size of the tip of the barrel. Take the second cap and make a larger X and again cut the opening round. This one should be a little smaller than the base of the barrel. Now take your clear hose and cut it using a razor or shears the length of the ported section of the barrel, you don't need the cuts perfect. Then take the two caps and fit them on the clear hose. You now have your all weather porting cover. Push it down over the barrel and go play in the rain or snow.

If you have a Freak barrel with All American Tips I have done the work for you. Get 1 1/4" hose with an inside diameter of 1".

And before you say it, yes you can just use tape to cover the ports, but this is a no mar way to keep water out.

Here are the pics:

hey S&S how effective are your paintgrenades? im lookin for something that will really surprise my friends the next time i go paintballing, and I dont plan on getting the squadbuster after hearing how crappy it is. are those grenades as effective as the f bomb big boy? I just want to have something to surprise and piss off my friends just for laughs :D

The reason i make my own grenades is that most store bought grenades have been on the shelf to long. this causes the paint to stail and the ball bearing to get stuck. What it sums up to is when you throw it they dont go off, even with a nice arching throw. i got sick of that when I played heavy gunner, so i made my own. I have never had one that didnt go off when i threw it, shallow throw or a high. But I have the ball bearing right at the tip of the sergical tube, so the first pressure that it gets after you pull the pin it goes off. they spray 15 feet in a circle I make my own paint to out of childrens water soluble paint and cornstarch. It's high visability and works great.

The grenades are cheep to make all you need is plastic pull ties, surgical tube 1/4, 3/8 ball bearings, haywire, paint and a 2oz seringe. You can get all these items on ebay cheep. They cost roughly .75 cents a grenade to make paint included. If you get the stuff pm or post on here and i will give you step by step instructions on how to make them.

If your looking for something to get your friends get a TR-12 Mastermine tripmine. They are 60$ and well worth it. I bought one and I think it was a good investment there is nothing more suprising then getting soaked with paint when no one is near you. They are fairly loud to so they have a startling effect. The M-80 mine to is a great mine but it has to be burried and stepped on as apposed to the Tr-12 that is a trip wire. But the M-80 also has burst tubes that make alot of noise. I just thought you might be interested in something like this. I think landmines are great and are one of the most unsung heros of paintball!

okay cool, thanks for the advice and the list man, Im definetly gonna look into getting that stuff, and when it comes to the mines, i dont quite have the cash for them yet, but I will soon after i get a job this spring. I cant wait to see the look on my friends faces after i pull somethin like this on em! :D :D

I can give you the plans to make a mine for like 15$ they are cheep to make and very safe. I make my own mines to, and they are very effective. One is made from steel but you have to know how to weld. The other one (the 15$ one) is made from PVC. I will be honest that you have to be a little handy though with tools and to like, if your not that kinda guy probably not the best project to tackel.

No actually I have gotten lazy, work got crazy lattly too. But i will start working on it soon, the base component of it though I can tell you will be the color of dead long grass kind of a tan brown, with darker brown patches and streaks of green and red brown.
But between work and my kids i havnt much time lattly when i do have time i check my pages quick and work a little on my stuff i changed my MR again and then started working on my MR1 I just bought that will be my main sniper rifel. I bought a Q-loader 2 and still have to stick that on my MR2 whenever it arives in the mail. But I will try to get workking on that soon. Have you started work on your ghillie yet?

if you decide to put a coaxial gun on there, i came up with an ingenious idea today while walking between classes: run a warp feed on the gun, and make a GIANT hopper out of one of those Culligan water bottles and a plastic hopper! you could even use an old agitated hopper and cut the bottom half of the hopper to fit the bottle neck!

interceptorMR2

Thanks for the idea DF im open to anyones ideas for my modes i was actually thinking of buying Yoders MR2 in the BST section of this group to and running twin MR2 in a "Hammer" fashion in a 360 degree rotating turret. Guns on one side bunker busting cannon on the other I was gonna PM ViperX to see if he still wanted to sell his launcher so I could take the lazy way out and not have to construct my own from scratch. Maby I will just change my mind and use your idea!

You dont need much cash to do the Mag setup either Intercepter, The hardest thing is finding the springs I still need 8 to finish off my 11 mags. But I will find them eventually. Let me know how your friend ends up making out with his.

yeah the mag thing is easy, i just have to convince my dad to take me into town this weekend. I live in a little tourist town in oregon where everything is extra pricey, so we usually have to go to a town 20 miles or so away to get our stuff at normal prices, but I dont think the ace hardware here is TOO mached up. I think I'll use whatever is left of my money and get to makin that mag.

02-01-2008, 07:42 AM
Try www.McMaster.com for your springs or other hardware stuff. They've got tons of stuff from screws to fittings.

I would also suggest shock springs from a bigger Nitro RC truck like the HPI Savage. They could possibly work with some modding.


If you are having trouble finding the right spring, try to see if you can "make" one by stretching it or cutting it to the right length.

Stretching it will also make it softer so maybe a spring you thought was too stiff would actually work for you.

Your not gonna make me right this again are you? Is it possible that you could just get the list from your friend that I give it to? Would save me alot of work, let me check my email and see if it saved a copy. It did...


go to your local hardwar stor and buy the fallowing...........

1 LB fitting 3/4 (its for electrical wiring) (3.00)
1 Langth of 3/4 electrical PVC pipe (5.00 for the langth)
12 strait 3/4 connectors (.49 cents each)
1 langth (I think there 2") 7/8 dowelrod
11 really light springs (I am having a horribel time finding as many springs as i need I only found 3 so far, they have to be very light and soft, like an Ariakon Overloards spring in its mag.)

First cut a foot off the PVC at the flaired end and set this asside, you can use this for other plans.

Now I am unfamiliar how thick a feedneck is on your gun either you can fit the LB right to the feedneck buy first wraping a few wraps of tape around it or if its thin enough like the MR series you cut a peice of the PVC 1/4 longer than your feedneck take a 3/4 drill bit and ream it out a little at a time until it fits real snug on your feedneck put your LB ontop of that.
cut a bunch of the PVC pipe 11 inches long and put the strait couplers on one end. Cut the dowel ror about 1/2 inch long and wrap it with tape until it fits real snug into the other end of the coupler attach your spring to the dowel. you could even drive a screw through the coupler into the dowel if you wanted to. thats it your done. I have 13 total mags for mine they hold I think its 17 in each mag and an extra 4 fit in the mag on the gun cuz of the LB you can experiment with the langth of the mags you want to they dont have to be 11 inches 12 inch after the coupler is on.
Hope that helps you if you want pics get intercepter to give you the links off the Spyder page i dont have time to gather them up right now. Because you bought the PVC I will give you some plans to make that silencer out of the 1 foot you cut off the electrical PVC with the flair at the end. They really work great.

Hope this works for you.

interceptorMR2
02-07-2008, 06:42 PM
well im not so sure, i was hoping to use pvc or some sort of plastic, but due to the rounded shape of the grenade, i may need to use wood for all i know, unless I am able to find a rounded end or something. Ill probably make my first example out of wood to see if it works well.

slim and shady
02-07-2008, 07:15 PM
Ok the one thing im gonna sugest though is to watch that it doesnt get to heavy, if you plan on tossing it ovver a bunker ect. you dont wanna have it end up landing on someones head and hurting them. Im interested to see what you come up with. Another problem you may face is that the wood will soak up the paint you will have to stain or clearcoat the inside as well.

hey s&s, im selling a bunch of old paintball stuff and a few other things and should get around 100-130 bucks or so, so I am going to start on the ghillie sometime next week. what exactly did you do for a ghillie face veil/head cover? I was thinkin maybe i could just sew a hood or something onto my BDU im going to be using, or just use some sort of hat.

slim and shady
02-15-2008, 06:40 AM
You could use a camo hat and sew the fish net to that, to be honest that was the first style that i made. The next was a compleate net that you droped overtop your mask. I personaly like that one better. the one with a hat can conflict with your mask. you just figure out where your face wil be and leave a spot for your lens so you can see still cover the bottom half though so they cant tell that it is a mask or head as esily. Take your time with the headpeice the 2 most esily spoted things for a paintball sniper is your head shoulder outline and then your hopper. It takes a wial to make but they are very well worth it. Hope this helps.

Originally Written by SOL Low-Light on the MilSimOG, I am just adding it to the MilSimE and it is his info. It is good info and I would like to see it live on after the MilsimOG is no more. Thank you SOL Low-Light for the info.

Thought this might help some of you that are thinking of making your own ghille suit....Enjoy.

Ghille Suit
For this little project you are going to need the following:

€coveralls (preferably ones with a loose fit and are a dark color)

€about 5 sq. yards of burlap

€a lot of green dye

€brown dye

€scissors

€sewing needle

€strong thread

*OPTIONAL* Camo spray paint (olive drab, brown, tan, black)(available in outdoor catalogues and stores)

€and most of all...patience, this will take a while.

Step One

A)Dye about 4-1/2 sq yards of burlap green (preferably an olive drab)

B)Dye the remaining 1/2 sq yard of burlap dark brown

Step Two

Cut the burlap into 2" X 18" strips

(Keep the colors seperated)

Step Three

Tie a knot (a knot, not a bow) in the center of each strip.

Fray the strips so you have a burlap ball with lots of string hanging off. (this makes for better camo)

Step Four (this is the part that takes all the time) Take the burlap and sew them on to the coveralls. Put 8-10 stiches THROUGH THE KNOT of the burlap pieces. BE SURE TO PUT MOST OF THE BURLAP ON THE BACK AND SHOULDERS OF THE SUIT.

After this step, you should be done. Of course, add and remove the strips as you like to acheve the best look for you. And remember, the more burlap, the more your outline will be broken up (to a certain extent)

Step Five (OPTIONAL)

AT A DISTANCE spray camo paint on the suit. (use random color splotches kinda like woodland camo)LIGHTLY SPRAY, YOU DON'T WANT SOLID COLORS YOU WANT IT TO BLEND IN, NOT STAND OUT.

Before anyone says it, I don't care about any "bounce" factor on gear/equipment. I play that if I'm hit, I'm out and I don't dabble in semantics about it.

Now that that's been said~~~

For anyone not knowing what they are, they are called Vambraces (forearm guards). The Romans invented them (or so they claim) but they (or similar representations) were used by just about every primitive-to-ancient-to-current- fighting force(s) on the planet.

The Celts used an all-leather version (as I have made), hardened into armor by one of 2 ways: boiling them in water or soaking them in melted wax. Historians have held the widely accepted opinion that boiling water was the most likely form of hardening the leather. I have not done this because it makes the leather chaff the skin. Originals were often lined in lamb's wool or wool cloth and it was acceptable because of the climate normal to the region. Obviously, I don't need that here in PA.

A bit of history is that for some years now, I've dabbled in creating leather hunting accessories...knife sheaths, handgun holsters and possible bags for muzzle loading.

I just spent 20+ hours on them, everything done by hand. The longest (and most difficult) part was the sewing. Getting them in the proper arc of my forearm was a pain, even though I made patterns in cardboard.

The black outer layer is 10 oz leather and the brown accent pieces are 16 oz leather. There are 2 inner layers on each Bracer for padding/anti-chaffing and each of these layers are 6-8 oz upholstery-grade leather.

I was going to harden them into true "armor" by submerging them in boiling water but I decided they are too nice to risk the dyes bleeding into each other. Instead, I'll rub some conditioner into them and then a final layer of wax to protect them.

Is this the one you were looking for. I really like them, and I found a case of like 36 ping pong balls at wally world so I could really stock up. I do have to say, make sure you have some patience when you sit down to do it. My hands started getting pretty cramped the first time.

I couldn't find anything as specific as that one. I did type in "potassium Nitrate" on ebay and found tons of hits, including some from pyrotechnics suppliers. They were like 5lb bags for $4. I think I should try to find an additive to put in to supress the flames. I play in a wooded area and would hate to start something ablaze.

I will second that I am a certified "Wildfire" fighter and it is no joke when the forest catches on fire. I think i would only use mine for urban assault on cement floors where I was sure nothing would catch fire. I sure would like to make a few though i think that it would be a huge advantage. Question though, how toxic would that stuff be to breath in? I mean no one wants to casue harm to anyone else playin you know? Has anyone heard anything negative about using it?

Potassium Nitrate is Not toxic......Potassium is found in bannanas (think i spelled that right....how does the song go?) which are edible and you actually breath in Nitrogen, but depending on the consentration of the chemical will give you certain levels of irritation if any....ill see if i can find the actual chemical makeup of the chemical

Though not home-made (and slightly on the spendy side) these might be a safe alternative for woodsball use.
http://www.evhill.com/products/White_Smoke.htm (http://www.evhill.com/products/White_Smoke.htm)

I think a larger quantity of baking soda may be the key to the KNO3 smoke bomb, as well as using pyrotechnic grade potassium nitrate, which seems to have additives in it already to suppress flames. It's something I'll have to test out when I have a chance. If anyone else has a chance to test it with either of these options be sure to let us know.

cyberthrasher_706
04-21-2008, 11:15 AM
Well, here's my thoughts. If we could develop the mixture, it would be simple enough to use a slimmed down version of the pull pin from the KNO3 bomb. I say slimmed down since the point in figuring this out is to limit as much as possible any flame involved. On the Safe-Vue page they have a link to info sheets, basically safety info, that lists what they are made of. Since that's a proprietary mixture I looked around and found that there are other smoke testing candles on the market which may be made of something else ( I still have to research it) that's more easily attainable. An ebay search did bring up some cheaper alternatives. Maybe I should pull out an old chemistry book. I spent the night as I was falling asleep contemplating the options.

yea i would do it the way your doing it but i just dont have the time right now between school and stuff but i probally will spend alot of time doing that when i get the time during the summer or winter. but yea that would be good right now and the reason i was doing that is because my dad told me he read somewhere the rope that i use you cant focus with depth perception and all on the strands or something like that to break up shoulder/head outline a bit more, but yea i also use my dads old marine corps woodland and desert camo so paint doesnt matter too much to me....but then again the rope pulls out easy the way i do it lol so yea thats a thought

If it works ok im going to build them large enough to fit in my EGL-47 with a 60 yard peice of string on it so when i shot it and it hits the end of the string it will pull the pin and blanket the area in smoke. My luckk the smoke will be because the grenade landed in dry grass and cought fire but what the heck hey! :rolleyes: (For the record this last bit is extreamly sarcastic and something I would never try to do!)

You should keep in mind the fire concerns for me. Maybe try the extra baking soda. The recipe calls for 1 part baking soda with a 6 part batch of salt peter so I was thinking of trying 2 parts. I still have to find a pan to use that my wife won't kill me for.

Hey DF, I just had an idea for your spring problem. I don't know how heavy of one you need but, Some slightly older instrument cables (the 1/4" kind) had springs at each end to allow for flex at the joints, in place of the rubber they have on them now. It is a little light but might do the trick for what you want. You could probably find one at a pawn shop if you looked. I might even have some, I'll have to check tomorrow or something. I just don't know how much force you need. I'll keep my mind open to other stuff that has springs in it.

Oh, Maybe stretched brake springs??

Uhhmmm, I said instrument cable, like a guitar cable. That would be dumb to go buy an entire instrument just for the springs.:D

streached break springs would be way to stiff
I was thinking along the lines of caliper springs, with the hooked ends. I have some in my tool box from an old 80's datsun, but I'm not a mechanic so I don't know exactly what they're called. I just know I got them off of the breaks. I was also just thinking about the door stops I have in my apartment. They're long tight springs, about 4" long as they are but they could easily be stretched out to lengthen them and that would also make them light enough to use.

Twaaaannnnnngggggg. My cat likes to play with them.

The funny thing is the sheet says I can finish it in roughly 6-7 hours if I tie one knot at least every 7 or so seconds, and even though I tie my knots faster than that, I'm nowhere close to finishing.

White trash speed feed (not good enough to be called ghetto so...)

A parmesan cheese container lid! It does fit in my grav hopper and it looks pretty good and it will probably work I just haven't tested it. It's got that big door on it for pouring the cheese so you can feed through there and then it will close most of the way back by itself which should block the paint from coming back out. not tested

If anyone doesn't know what that looks like I can post pics just ask.

Okay so I've finally decided to do something this tg break, so I found some scrap wood my dad didn't care for and decided I would use it to creat a magazine, maybe my AK-47 front sight, and maybe even those pvc pipe magazine holsters I talked about way back.

Heres my problem. I have no way of securing any of these pieces of wood to my actual marker. I have no idea how I would do it. Anyone have any ideas? I dont have any tools that can tap a screw hole into the wood, which would enable me to use some older allen screws. I pretty much have nothing to use that would make them secure like most other items would. for the dragunov mag Im making, I might have to actually extend a piece that goes up and around the top of the marker, but that would look like crap... and the sight, well, I have no idea how I'm gonna do that. I guess i could try to find some a really small bolt and see if that works... Most I've seen have a small hole at the bottom for a screw where it just tightens and clamps onto a barrel, kind of like how a feedneck would. I have a few ideas for the pvc pipe magazine holsters that would likely work, but if anyone has any ideas of securing the magazine to the marker and the sight to the barrel, I'm all ears. Just a little background info on my air setup, I did the same thing kingtutballer did with his air when he made his wooden shroud. My remote coil goes directly into the marker, no drop forward or steel line. Just thought id put that out there in case some ideas would conflict with that...

EDIT: Foundan idea for the mag, im going to try to extend a part of the mag upestf so that it goes up a around that small plug that sticks out when you take off the MR2 shroud. After that Ill cut a bit off of the bottom (horizontally) from my plastic airsoft shroud I'm using as the dragunov handguard so that the extended piece fits through.

Okay I just finished up with my mag and shroud for my "tac-dragunov" project. I still need to get a longer barrel and an AK sight, but that will come, hopefully in the not too distant future. Here's some pics of the finished product, one picture with the unfinished shroud and no mag, and one picture of the mag and shroud before they were spray painted, and the mag wasn't quite complete. Hope you guys like it. Oh and I also ended up cutting part of the shroud off in the back, it was so long to the point where it was very difficult unscrewing the barrel later.

I plan on making a better magazine once we get a drill press, but this will do for now.

wow, that looks really good. need to paint the screw heads black though!

i wish i could find my friends old m4 mag so that i could gut it and put it on my mr1, because i dont want to spend $15 on a mag.

interceptorMR2
11-26-2008, 03:10 PM
yeah I forgot to do the screw heads, I'll do that tomorrow though, I'm tired.
I decided I wasn't going to buy a mag since we just finished setting up our woodshop, so I figured, hey, if we have some scrap wood, i could just make one for free. I'll probably end up making a better one once we get a drill press though, mine got kind of scratched up in the process.

heres a tip, use black nail polish on the screws. it'll be a lot faster than spray paint, and it wont flake off.

interceptorMR2
11-26-2008, 03:31 PM
I may do that in the future, but for now I'll just use black spray paint. My dad made my sister throw out her black nail polish cause he hates "that goth ****" lol. I'll probably get some sooner or later though.

thanks man, depending on whether we get any snow this year, I'm hoping to get a 20" or so barrel and an ak-47 front sight soon here, I may end up making the ak sight on my own though...

ok i did not see this on here so im gonna post it. i cannot claim this as my own idea as i overheard it at a local paintball shop. But instead of buying a sometimes pricey speed-feed for your hopper, buy a rubber garbage disposal guard/cover that you see in 90-99% of kitchen sinks for about 2-4 dollars from almost any hardware store. the person says they run a little small sometimes so heat up the rubber with a blow dryer to soften the rubber and stretch it around the hopper opening. if it runs a little big. cut a slice out of the piece like you would a pizza and use a hose clamp to hold it on. i think that is all he said about it. hope it works, i have yet to try it but plan to. have not gotten into town besides work. no free time with two young ones to take care of.

Okay, so this is one of the few days that I've actually had time to work on my ghillie suit that I started nearly a year ago, and I'm not too far... about shoulder height. I was originally planning on making this a full body suit, but now I am wondering at this point, is it really necessary for me to go all the way down the front of the ghillie suit? Considering a tend to do a lot of creeping and crawling, like most snipers, do I really need a front of the ghillie suit or should I just stick to finishing up the shoulders, the hood, and the chest? I'm afraid If I do actually go through with the whole front of the ghillie suit, I may end up tearing it up anyways from all the crawling I do. What do you guys think?

http://paintballsilencer.tripod.com/ hey i dont know how legal this is but it aparently works try this out also could you use a small flash powder charge and put that in the center of some paintballs hot glued togeather and set it up on a fuse ?

slim and shady
11-19-2009, 05:53 PM
ummm anything using a fuse or explosives doesnt belong in THIS SPORT the idea of paintball is good clean fun not hurting people. Also the use of anything that creates extream heat of flame is probably a bad idea as well wildfires are no joke and alot esier to light then you may think.

I would asume that you are playing outlaw ball and not on a actual paintball feild, there is nothing wrong with that. Just keep in mind safty is first, you only have 2 eyes so chrono your markers (buy a cheep handheld they work) and dont use anything that isnt ment for the sport. Im all for finding new ways to make land mines, launchers ect. But it has to be 100% without a doubt safe. Just keep it in mind.

ok the silencer i just built works pretty well as i dont play on fields that much im going to use it with my friends... but ow do you keep it constatly lonned up?
because the problem i have the paintballs will explode if they even lighly tap the side wall


also i came up with a nade launcher bassed off the "blooper" ill send you some stuff on facebook (you jsut added me) aidan mcmuffin

It's not like that's a whole lot. ;)

Also, lose the foregrip little man. It doesn't look good and will actually hurt the functionality of the marker.

anything that uses open flame is a safty risk there are alot of home smoke grenades, in my experiance I say spend the 8$ agrenade and get the proper ones.

i would say leave the ping pong smoke grenade as a neat party trick :) there are other types of flameless smoke grenades though.
