View Full Version : New gun.... Mini riddle...

Well, I spent a couple minutes deliberating my Threshold after I aired it up, and decided that although it was the most awesome factory mill job I'd laid my eyes upon, it shot like a ****ing tank. I decided that in that case... I'd just have to get something else. I found this marker at a decent price, and just had to have it. Yeah, it's one of the original 1/10's I believe, so they're not that common. It's also from my favorite company in paintball right now, and as many know their guns are some of the best shooting, if not THE best shooting from the factory, right out of the box! What is it? :)

Pictures'll be up tonight when I get home of the answer..... Just got a call saying it's waiting on my doorstep. ;) First one to guess what it is before pictures are posted gets five (5!) brownie points so long as they have not been told by me what it is. :)

EDIT: Here the pictures are:

I would say talon or blade II......I would guess talon for the ultra smooth pump stroke.

^ I think your right taco. ;)

bigred76
02-25-2008, 11:00 AM
Hahahaha, the Talon is FTL compared to the Blade2! That thing's AGGSAUCE! :dodgy:

Pikadoll? I don't know about them... they're not seeming so great!

The Vice isn't that "ubber" right out of the box... seeing that trigger spring in Taco's, it'd be below this gun. ;)

bigred76
02-25-2008, 06:14 PM
Hahaha, I can tell you already. ;) They're the best shooting gun I've ever owned, and Taco said that my last one that I traded off to him for a Threshold was better than his Ego7. So much so that he sold the Ego7 before it! They're like an AKA in a lot of senses, but they're sooooooo much lighter. I believe it's right above 2lbs, about a hair over.

The stock trigger is "meh".... it needs a PBK Scythe. ;)

Seen it and the Borg aint even sweatin', Ted. ;) My last one dragged me down the field while IT mowed faces, and I'm sure this one just might do the same. :D

I have to agree, it's one of the best colors I've seen on them to date. My red/black was sexy in person, but this one just takes it to a whole new level.

Holy ****ing ****! I just found all the ORIGINAL paperwork for the purchase of this Borg! It came in a case with the Borg, behind the foam. I just checked it, and this Borg, #3467, is 1/10.... it's factory anodized black!!!! :D It was bought from PBK, teched, and sent out in late 2006, I even have the original price tag that was on the gun from PBK! LOL! I was afraid that this was one of the after-the-fact anno's to bite off the 1/10's...

Hahaha, you shoulda taken me up on my last Borg, BigD. God knows who has it now, but it shot ropes... I <3 this thing, but as soon as my money transfers to PayPal, this stock trigger's gone. PBK Scythe is what I had on my first when I fell in love with it, and the stocker's got nothing on it! :)


XSiv, I'm damn lucky to have picked this one up. I don't know how she shoots yet with this one, it might need a lubing, but other than that.... dayum is all I can say looking at it.

I do too, that one was one of ODD's better jobs IMO!

Sascha, I've had that predicament before... actually, a couple weeks ago. My mom gave me money for "school..." I bought myself a new hammer. ;) A real nice one for later on in the "school" of life. :D You can always try that excuse. :)

I've beat it up a bit :( Or at least someone I loaned it to did.......I think I will get another Dust Black 06 Borg and do it up again one of these days! The anno wasn't the best.........but ODD didn't do that part at the time. The stock anno's on MD Borgs are really good! It would have held up alot better that way! It's on my to do list!

There ya go... ;) 'Twas $120 after shipping, and it's the largest size of titanium hammer that the company puts out. It's well worth the money if you're in the Industry and use your hammer everyday. The manufacture claims that it hits like a 28oz hammer, but I haven't been able to test that yet. Just swinging it in the air I can tell you it is the BEST hammer I have ever owned, and I've had many... they just killed my arms after using them for long stretches in a full day's work. This one wont, I can just tell.

bigred76
02-27-2008, 06:15 PM
NME? (It's pronounced Enemy ;)) It was made by SystemX, which went out of business. It's a Timmy knock-off, but it's definitely not the worst one made, if not the best. I personally like how they look, but as for performance... I haven't had one to gauge it compared to an authentic Timmy. If it's sub-$300, it's a worthwhile buy!

We have a local team named X-Bomb here that's tearing it up in XPSL, and another named SCP (field they play at/are sponsored by) Epic. Epic's just about always in top five of XPSL.

I thought so, but didn't want to be wrong and seem a fool. ;) They're an awesome team, I'm glad that their first squad got moved up. It'll be interesting to see how their team does this year!

Nope, never heard of them XSiv. I've got enough teams to remember from my area, LOL! XSV, Epic, X-Bomb, CPS, Grrl on Grrl, just to name some of the more prominent ones on top of my head! Xplode, on some brief reconnoitering, is either some random team or a D3 Xball team from Georgia. If the latter is the case, then they're sandbagging like mother ****ers!

I don't know if I ever posted it, but here's the video of my last Cyborg I put together. Was mainly fiddling with Windows Movie Maker, seeing what it could do. Comments on it are good... So long as they're nice. ;)

I Agree completely... My dad's wheelbarrows dont agree though :D

(they're directly underneath the tree I shoot at, resulting in sticky yellow wheelbarrows:D :D )

The box was there to cut down on spray back at me because of the camera (didn't want the lense to catch a bit of shell or anything, would have been a ***** to clean). I normally shoot a tree at my house, but at the GF's there's only that corner of the fence to shoot at. :(

Nice Vid! Though the clicking when the text appeared saying the mode made my skull feel like it was rattling.

Hmmm, that's odd... I'll have to reupload it, that version doesn't even have the ending I put on. I thought I checked it before uploading, too... :confused:


EDIT: Checked my comp's version, checked Photobucket's version, and somehow when uploading it added that noise. Kinda odd, but I reuploaded it and this is the new version:

Hey Tim, what'd the wall look like behind the box? Lol.


I bet your parents made you clean that up.

Oh and your VLocity/hopper sounds like a hair drier. >.>
I want me a Borg.

Hahaha, my parents don't even bother me here... GF's house ftw! I dropped about a half case into that spot and it was gooey as ****... I think I have a picture of it somewhere around here, lemme check.

Meh, it's REALLY low on batteries. I should've changed them about 2 months ago. :D

How did your GF explain that to her parents?

"...uh mom/dad... well... see... I had a really bad stomach ache... and well... I puked..."

Parents reaction: "WE'RE SENDING YOU TO THE E.R.!!! What were those chunky shell bits from?!"

Hahaha, her mom was here and said it was fine so long as I washed it down. Here's before the washdown:

The box helped consolidate a lot of the spray/paint/shell, but a bunch still was everywhere... I'm considering my options on how to do it next time so that it works a little better.

this is the trap i was telling you about. it should eliminate about 99% of all splatter/paint pickup. it may require A LOT of duct tape though. for everyone who doesnt know how it works, basically you pad the box w/ shredded paper/packing peanuts. then you tape a trash bag around the back of the box, then another bag over that (if you use the strong bags, one may be enough.) then you make a steep ramp that will catch a lot of the balls that try to bounce out. the ones that do bounce out will almost always land in the box on the ground. and taping up the front of the box with a plastic bag will help keep most of the paint in, and when its ripped to shreds, just replace it. set it on a table, and there you go. now, with no further adieu, DFSniper's ghetto paintball trap:

Hmmm, that makes more sense now.... I'd only worry about the bag in the back getting blown the **** out of it by my guns. The yard here's only about 15ft long, LOL!

Shadow, that's what a Cyborg, a half case of paint, and an itchy trigger finger bring on. ;)

i was about 10ft away, but my fps was way low (hadnt chrono'd it yet). basically the padding absorbs all the energy, so the few that do make it through have very little force left in them to rip through two layers of trash bags. you could alway use those reinforced Glad or Hefty bags!

Unfortunately, the Cyborg doesn't know what low FPS means.... When you set it, it's pretty much at 275fps. :D

Heh, it's only a half case there, XSiv... Imagine what it looked like after I stopped filming and taking pictures and shot another half... :D

Just about was. Cheri (the GF) had her cousin come down the next weekend with his Pilot ACS, and the boxes I set up to keep spray down were ripped to shreds before I could tell them to shoot the middle of the boxes.... Hooked the little guy up with my Alias after he shot his Spyder and his eyes went wide, lmfao!

Those droids are real nice the borg is kinda fuggly , but i hear great things about them so they must be great markers.

Eh, it looks WAY better in person. The milling's just amazing, not like the Threshold I had, but it's better than, say, a Spyder's. I have yet to see a Droid, but I'm trying to pressure my local shop into being a dealer for MacDev. I think that after the ballers in the area see my Borg, they might realize what a good company it is.

They're better than great markers, Muddy Taco even said at one point my old one beat his Ego7 in performance. :D

Was fiddling with images in GIMP (free version of PhotoShop by a different company, basically), and came up with this:

Yup, Dark Seoul transparent smoke grips. I'da gotten Dark Seoul black grips, but I wasn't sure about how they'd work with the LED and all. This way I can see it very well.
