I thought that the gun istself wouldnt look great because of the grenade launcher it will be husky and bulky looking kinda like a Frankin-Spyder with the adition of the G36 mod. Out of all the stocks I thought that the Saw would look the best with what im doing to the marker, other stocks are probably more practical but I dont think would look as good on the marker. Another thing is that I havnt seen a MR2 with a saw stock so it will be more unique.
I think that the T board will be a great adition, Im excited about this projec and am expecting big resaults. The only thing I dont know is where to get a small army to pack the heavy beast around!

i think the car stock would be a lot more function over form than the saw stock.

KingTutBaller
03-09-2008, 07:42 PM
i think you'll like the SAW stock, i have the special ops commando stock, and the product is great. if you're not into the car stocks these will definately add a cool look to your marker. I think that the saw stock will suit the look, like you said, with it looking all beefy, but we'll never know till it's on there. On the other hand, I'm personally not a big fan of the saw stock but if you're going for something unique, it will definately stick out from the sea of car stocks out there.

not so much trouble just i need new parts.

need to send the board back to SD, and i need to buy a new car stock... its a shame because i got it for christmas..:(

but once i have it up and running it should be flawless... i hope.. :cool:

ill show you a pic of it as it sits right now..

03-09-2008, 07:55 PM
I think the SAW is the best choice, the Car stock might have a few more functinable uses but i think it would look real ugly on the marker. I think my next choice would be the commando stock but i still dont think that would fit it as well as the SAW.

well hope you get your parts soon Spyderman.

you get the pic yet?

ps: how do you like the qloader mounted like that? ill post new pics when i get home from school

slim and shady
03-10-2008, 05:21 PM
I got the pic and decided on the SAW stock i think it will fit just nice, really need my proshop to get back to me though so I can get my new MR2 ordered and then grab the board, might even grab the stock this month too. Next month grab the expansion chamber and whatnot, only thing im worried about is the Launcher.
I like the Q-loader like that so much so in fact that this morning before i went to work I designed my own bracket to attach mine direct to the feedneck as well. I may have to get the same end you have though cuz it looks kinda funny having the big ear sticking out the front. I was gonna take pics but dont have my camra so i cant. i think that will get ride of alot more potential problem with the loader too getting rid of more hoses and fittings.

Ok well the gun is on its way now and should be here in a few days! Sweet deal the project is getting kicked off! I also grabed a set of MR wrap around grips, as soon as my question is answeard I may even grab the board!

I have a question for those who may know.....
Are the Verc T board and the vertue board the same thing???????
I have only heard of the Tado board or the Verc T board, so i thought that may be the same as the vertue??

slim and shady
03-13-2008, 02:05 PM
Decided to just go ahead and grab the SAW stock as well, still need the board question answeard though thanks!

dynastykiller08
03-13-2008, 04:33 PM
im 90 percent sure it's two different things but i got that from google so i dont know???? but as far as boards go i see your putting together a pretty cool project im doing the same and i have the tadao board/w chip and it rips...i love it wanna know more hit me up, and there cheaper than the other boards(at least i got it cheaper

slim and shady
03-13-2008, 07:01 PM
Ok I just might, I think I would like to stick to the VerC T board though supposed to be the best of the best and i want to go all out on this one but we will see thanks for the offer.

03-14-2008, 06:37 AM
I like the VerC.. but with virtue i guess you can calculate your ROF etc..

not much difference really, i like SD's customer service.

and the VerC isn't really all that programmable compared to the Virtue

slim and shady
03-14-2008, 12:03 PM
I think that I will stick to the Verc, can you use the eyes that come with the gun or do you have to buy new ones that match the board?

slim and shady
03-16-2008, 10:11 AM
I dont know now the only difference i can see between the two boards is that the Vertue is more custumizable (SP) to the user by setting your own ROF's and ramping rates. I may just grab this board now seeing as how its more commonly availeble to me here and in all rights seems a little better. The only thing im unsure on is if it will fit the MR2? Why hasnt anyone put it in there gun before?

I also heard that Trinity has a M16 mag out now so i will probably get that one in stead of the Ak.
I am having trouble locating a G36 OLD STYLE shroud. The new ones slip right over the marker and wont work. If anyone knows where I can get the old style G36 top rail(carry handel) I would apreciate if they let me know.

Found A scepter, problem is that it is for an A-5 and its a barrel attachment style. I would have to chop the barrel off or see it i could get the right threads machined on there. If I couldnt get the threads machined I would have to come up with a custom mounting method. My home mods are rather ugly and i am not sure i would want to take that route, so then i might be forced to get the Tippmann ordinance launcher but thats and extra 200$.

That is where I am sitting right now, when things change I will let you know. And again if anyone knows where to get the old G36 new or used I would apreciate it.

-The Virtue board can be used with ALL spyder markers


I also heard that Trinity has a M16 mag out now so i will probably get that one in stead of the Ak.

-The trinity M16 mag..I Don't think it would work as good as the AK mag and I say this only because if you look at the M16 mag it screws into the little stubby adapter thing on the body and leaves a gap between the marker and the mag. But seeing as you are the king of DIY you could make a skirt for it or something out of wood.

What do you mean by G36 shroud? I know you can grab a G36 X7 rail at AVI but i dont think it will work because there isnt enough rail.


Found A scepter, problem is that it is for an A-5 and its a barrel attachment style. I would have to chop the barrel off or see it i could get the right threads machined on there. If I couldnt get the threads machined I would have to come up with a custom mounting method. My home mods are rather ugly and i am not sure i would want to take that route, so then i might be forced to get the Tippmann ordinance launcher but thats and extra 200$.
-I have no idea what a scepter is but I know Rap4 makes M203 launchers for Spyders that attach to barrels/shrouds



That is where I am sitting right now, when things change I will let you know. And again if anyone knows where to get the old G36 new or used I would apreciate it.

03-16-2008, 08:27 PM
Well Viper just solved alot of my problems finding me the G36 raised rail, it wont fit the MR2 either thats why there is a need for a custom shroud and being you have to do that you may as well make it to fit all barrels right. He hooked me up with alot of info on that and how he did his to witch is a GREAT help.
I feel this project is finally starting to come together now. Tommorow morning I will order the rail and then set my mind to the creation of the shroud.

I think i will get the Vertue board it seems more adjusteble.

The reason i want a Scepter or a ordinance launcher is they shoot sergical tub grenades or waterballoons not the "shootgun" effects that the RAP 4 ones do. If im lugin the weight around I want it to at least be effective!

slim and shady
03-17-2008, 06:07 PM
well tommorow I am buying the fallowing

-Vertue board with eyes
-Trinity X chamber
-G36 rail

So the only thing I will have left for the project is the launcher and the custom shroud.

slim and shady
03-18-2008, 09:34 AM
ok I got the fallowing

-G36 rail
-AR15 site riser
-Vertue Board with eyes
-Trinity expansion chamber (AK) and all appropriate fittings

I also realised that i am going to need a 16" barrel not a 14" because of the custom shroud, so I am in the prossess of getting one from Maverick
its a 16” Sniper CMI Tru-Flight Straight Rifled & Muzzled Barrel w/fitted Dye Sight rail. But I will take off the site rail.

The only thing left for the project now is the custom rail and the Grenade launcher I will probably buy that tonight and the only thing left will be the custom shroud.

slim and shady
03-18-2008, 07:58 PM
ok tommorow I am going to order the derlin block for my battle shroud, then take it to a machinest I know to have it custom made, to be honest if I could get it as close as possible to vipers i would be more then happy!
So thats the next step, let you know when something new transpires, but im waiting on alot of parts so it may go a lil dead for a wial.

How much does the MR2 weigh with the stock off?

slim and shady
03-19-2008, 06:39 PM
Weight: 4.25 9For the MR2 W/eye I got this outta Facefull magazine) So without the stock something like 4LBS.

I thought everything was going great with this project then....... The company i bought the derlin from this morning left a message when i got home from work saying that they actually no longer ship internationaly. So now I either have to find some place that does ship to canada or find another way to have it shipped up here if anyone can help me out let me know!
Also My MR2 came with a faulty battery so I had to have a new one shipped out to. That is where I am at right now.

03-20-2008, 06:27 PM
Hey Dynasty thanks alot for the offer I really apreciate it! I would have taken you up on it but Viper wrote and said i could send it to him and he would custom make it for me (i dont have the tools) of corse I didnt hesitate to accept! So this gun is gonna have a sweet CUSTOM VIPERX BATTLE SHROUD! I can hardly contain my excitment! Well i guess i better get back to the grind stone, damn home renovations cutting in to my PB time!
Let you all know when somethingn new transpires.

03-23-2008, 01:05 PM
the g36 shroud fits?

slim and shady
03-23-2008, 08:21 PM
The G36 fits any 7/8 rail, HOWEVER it is about 1" longer then the MR2 rail hence one of the many reasons I have to get the custom derlin battle shroud.
So to answear your question NO it wont just fit on the MR2 without some custom moding.

slim and shady
03-25-2008, 08:54 PM
well here is what is happening with the project, waiting on the derlin for the shroud, then that will commence. I have about 400 for the launcher with about 200 left to go before I can buy it. i decided to go with the Tippmann ordinance launcher. They are still sold in stores so it is easier to get one, and they shoot water balloons (Inside a cardboard breakaway shell) instead of special sergical tube grenades that could get costly. When more happens i will let you know.

slim and shady
03-29-2008, 03:00 PM
So I put the new vertue board in my gun with laser eyes and this thing rips its crazy. The board itself is extreamly programable as well that is a huge help. Its easy to switch modes and customise the settings. Im happy I ended up going with the vertue board. I hade to drill a hole in hte back of the trigger frame though for the charging port. Other then that it was a breeze to instal as well.

04-03-2008, 06:11 PM
I was holding out on pics until i was all done! I wanted the ohhhh ahhhh affect! But I have run into the most unfortinate surcumstanses(SP???) My truck broke down and cost me 1600 to get it fixed so now I am working my but off to try to keep this gun project on schedual. Hopefully It will be compleate at the end of the month though I may have to wait a little longer to get my launcher:(

But as soon as I can I will throw up pics. I am currently still waiting on th x chamber to arrive as well as the AR15 riser too. The shroud is still in progress and im so excited about that one this set up is gonna be killer.
Then all I have left is the launcher but i hope i can still grab that too.

ohhh I just thought of something i am going to have to make some sort of skirt to cover the eye wires when I put the X chamber on. The forgrip will be gone and with it the means of covering them. Anyone have any ideas?

What I did: (uber ghetto) I use like 4 layers of duct tape and taped over the eye wires and then sharpied the tape so it didnt look totally ghetto

DFSniper
04-05-2008, 07:29 AM
just use electrical tape.

timmy covers might work, but you'd have to completely flatten them first.

slim and shady
04-05-2008, 07:47 AM
I am not sure about the tape I would have to see what it looks like I dont want to make it look ugly either i think what i might have to do is get the ambition to custom make my aluminum eyes early and make them is some weird design that covers the the eyes and detents as well as the wire.
However the side of the marker with the feedneck has the eye cover attached direct to the feedneck so i would have to mod that in some way as well. I guess I will just have to sit down and draw a deign that fits and works then stencel (SP) it onto the aluminum. Im not sure what kind of design but i guess it will have to flow with the marker cover everything and look ok.
Any ideas for that?

DFSniper
04-05-2008, 07:59 AM
get some cheap tac rails, and then mill them for eyes, detent, etc.

slim and shady
04-05-2008, 08:07 AM
I dont think that tac rails would be wide enough to cover the wires to.
I thought even of moding the top part of the stock forgrip to fit somehow but i dont want to cheepn the marker or its looks either. I think I may have to make the custom covers either out of aluminum or darlin.
Have any ideas for a design or any other ideas how to beat this problem?

Havnt seen you in a wial Interceptor, have any ideas on how to solve my eye cover problems?

04-05-2008, 08:30 AM
nope not a clue lol sorry, I haven't done too much of the freelance modding myself just because when i do, i usually break things and then my dad thinks i mod too much.... which is impossible !!!

do you think maybe making a custom wood part and painting it black or something would work? you'd hafta make some measurements of course, but it might work(mebe?!?)

slim and shady
04-05-2008, 12:41 PM
Well i made a template for the eye covers its an Apache warriors head, it turned out ok but on the marker I think that it is a little to large and im not sure if im gonna keep it or make a different design. most things I think look to big on there but it has to be large enough to cover the eye wires so im not sure how its gonna turn out in the end.

slim and shady
04-05-2008, 02:00 PM
I also just realised that i never took into account the portion of the barrel that threaded into the marker so now the barrel is to short and i am on the lookout for another one. This project is getting more and more expensive everytime i turn around. So if anyone has a cheep 18-20+ inch barrel they wanna sell cheep let me know.

HavocNC
04-05-2008, 03:50 PM
Like how long are the wires for the eyes I maybe able to come up with an idea.

slim and shady
04-05-2008, 05:34 PM
Well im going to assum that you have seen an MR3 or a MR2 W/eye. The wires I need covered run from the eye covers down underneith the forgrip and to the bottom of the marker. When I have to take the forgrip off to put on the X chamber they will be showing. so the distance would be at an angle from the eye covers to the bottom of the frame. Hope you come up with something more constructive than I did!

slim and shady
04-05-2008, 05:36 PM
oh I also bought a smart parts 20" tactical barrel so that problem is fixed again.

HavocNC
04-05-2008, 05:42 PM

Ok, the "mountain" thing is basically a representation of a landscape picture. When you click it, it will bring up a pop-up for the URL of the image you want to show.

You need to register on a photo uploading website, I prefer www.photobucket.com, but there are many out there. Click the browse button in the uploader on Photobucket in the middle near the top on your album page, and show it where the picture file is on your computer. Then, when it's uploaded, you can click the link for the direct image and use the "mountain" button here and paste the link in, or click the link for the [IMG} tags and paste it directly into your reply.

I know there's probably a way to attach images, but I never use it as it is a pain for all the members viewing the thread to open the links to view them. It's much easier to just put up the picture on a photo webhost and have it show up from there.

Well back on topic, the shroud is lookin crazy sick I think that it is buy far the peice that is going to make this project. Im so excited to throw it on the gun when it is all finished. i have a few more odds and ends to pick up as well such as extra rails and the like. Then its just getting the shroud finished and put on and buying a grenade launcher. So things are still going ok I still have a little time before my absolute deadline of May 11th (I have a scenario that day) But i hope to have it done before the end of the month so i can play a few games withit before hand and make sure all is well. When something new happens I will let you know.

Out of curiousity, where did you get your rail kit, Shady? It mounts the 3/8" dovetail, right?

Good to hear you're going to a scenario, those are always fun. :)

Shady I may have figure out how to hide the majority of the wire but the eye cover I have not quite figured out yet. Well I was thinking what if you just cut off the Long Stem (What I am calling it for now) that hides the macro line and cut the upperhalf until you can fit the expansion chamber neatly between the tow screw holes on it so that way you can still run the eye wire under that piece and it will still look neat. That is what I have right just a quick thought I had at school about it and just had to post it. I saw the diagram of the MR2 with and this just jumped in my head. So When I got home I sat down and drew it out and figured it just may work. Your lucky I though of this in my last hour and not like my first or I would have forgot. I drew it up and this idea to me did not look half bad. I am no artist but tried my best at drawing it and to me it may give it a little better to the AK clip. Please if this does not work do not be mad at me :):D Remember this is just a thought I do not know the full dimensions of everything but I figured it couldn't be too big, and maybe the shroud will still fit down between the covver.:D :cool:

how about shrink wrapping the wires?

slim and shady
04-07-2008, 05:02 PM
I can wait until this project is done to. To be honest Bigred the rail kit is just 1" rails (2 of them) and I drilled and tapped the original 3/8 rail to fit them. That wont be on this new gun though I went with the AR15 ontop of the G36 rail instead. If you can Havoc throw up a pic and let me take a look all ideas are apreciated! I think that shrinkwrap would help protect the wires alot better DF however im not sure that is the solution im looking for.
I also thought i would make a thread after to "Name that marker" and everyone can throw up ideas on what to name the marker. We put the most popular to a vote and se hwat one wins, what do you guys think?

great I think what I will do is have everyone throw up names, then vote to see what one wins after that anyone who is artistic enough can draw a logo or name emblem (im not sure what to call it but you get the idea) of the name i will compy that design for my new eye cover? I think that would be the perfect way to finish of a great project and thank everyone who helped so much with it.

Hey thats pretty good you are quit the artist! I got the general idea of what you mean and i thought of that as well. i may even do it that way. Since you are such the artist keep in mind that when im done i will throw up some pics everyone can throw up names for the "Name the marker" portion after that its put to a vote what one wins. Whatever one wins whoever has talent enough to draw or do it on the computer makes a design of the name and i will custom fit that to be the new eye cover!

04-13-2008, 04:03 PM
no its a EGL-47 Launcher (it's the eone the US military uses to train there troops) So monday i think im going to buy my launcher. I went coyote hunting this weekend and when I got home one of the water pipes had broke and flooded my new laminant floor I put in so thats gonna cut into the project again. Im starting to get sick of fixing stuff.
Great news....Shroud is 95% done and it's killer hope you all are as excited about this as I am because its just about time for the grand finally(SP?????)The X chamber should be here any day (Im getting so sick of waiting for it) I hope the launcher does not take that long to have sent.

04-13-2008, 05:38 PM
A question for all you experianced paintballers. If I buy this launcher even though its tippmann can i get fittings and everything to insure i can hook it up to my spyder? I would emagin Tippmann uses different fittings ect. i have never owned a tippmann product. Can someone help me out with this. I just need to be assured that once I get it i will be able to get fittings and the like to make it rn off a spyder.

bigred76
04-13-2008, 09:53 PM
Should be able to... Only hold up would be the adapter from the Spyder's metric to the industry standard NPT fittings that Tippmann's use.

Well i have to wait till Wendsday now for my launcher I phoned there but no one there knows anythig at all. I have never talked to a paintball company who hired people who know nothing about anything to do with paintball. So i have to wait and talk to the manager Wendsday apperintly he is the only one who knows anything relating to the products they are selling. That is a setback but as long as I can get it before May 11Th im still on schedual.

bigred76
04-14-2008, 07:13 PM
LOL! Gotta love that.... I never did like their company practices....

As for the adapter, Shocktech is a common company that makes them, but I know that there are many others that do as well. They are a common air fitting. Heck, PM HobbyHorse and ask him for a metric/standard adapter for macro.

I am still waiting on a few things though I still am waiting for the x-chamber and AR15 riser they have bein "Shipping" for like 3 weeks and are probably in Russia by now. Then the shroud when i get the few things to all come together it will be done but its like 80-85% done. Soon it will be time to throw the pics up i hope

slim and shady
04-18-2008, 08:39 PM
well I dont know if im ever ment to get this launcher no one will respond from the link that Dynasty give me and i finaly got to talk to the manager at exotic sportz and he asked me if we could place the order a different day he was to bussy. To bussy to place an order for 600$ WTF you would think for that kinda cash you would be interested in getting the order done.

Good news I finally located my X chamber and AR-15 riser and they should be at my door in 1-2 days that is good news i suppose. Waited long enough for that to.

So again the major setback is the launcher. But the good news is that they are open tommorow so hopefuly the order can be compleated then. Not to postpone things even further but once i get the launcher i have to custom make brackets to fit the MR2 and of corse get the right fittings. But that shouldnt take to long. so im a week or so im hopping this project will be done. Then we will name the marker and I will custom make the new eye covers, and throw up a few pics with them. So this is going to be wraping up very soon.

EDIT: i also forgot to mention i also bought Spydermans Q-loader so i have 10 pods now for this project, instead of 5. I thought that it would help to carry 1000 rnds instead of 500 being I made this gun for cover and supporting fire.

04-21-2008, 09:43 AM
ok here is a list of a few more things that I have picked up for this project.

-32* 9 peice spring kit
-shocktek shim kit
-G36 3 peice rail kit (short)
-G36 3 peice rail kit (long)
-Timmy detents
-custom langth steal braided hose and fittings for expansion chamber

I think thats it for now although i probably will have to grab a few more G36 short rails to make it look right.

EDIT:
I got my x chamber and AR 15 riser rail today and put those on. I had trouble with the X chamber so i couldnt hook the air up. The custom steal braided hose I asked them to make was like 1" short so it wont fit. I have the adapter to go into the ASA but I will have to get a longer hose.

Time for the great news, I talked to Viper and the shroud will be shipping out tommorw! i cant wait to see what it looks like on the marker. I think that will be the part that makes this marker! So that is the best news I got in a long time :D

I wanted to give some reviews on a few of the products that I have bought for my MR2 W/ eye.

Virtue board W/ laser eyes- I decided to get the Virtue over the T-board because of its customisability(SP??) the options for this board are virtuealy endless. The board is top notch and the custemer service is even better. There is a minor problem when you go to install it however you have to drill a new hole for the charging port right between where the old charging port used to be on the stock board and the eye on off button on the old board. It's not a big deal but some people may find that discouraging. Other then that the board is simple to install and use. You can figure it out in a hurry.

SAW stock- This really is a great stock I hope that this reveiw will help more people decide to get it. This is buy far the most sturdy stock that I have ever seen its unreal. It is durable comferitable and looks good. The setback to it however is that it is also by far the most HEAVY stock I have ever seen as well.

A-5 G36 rail- excellent construction light overall a great product. No complaints whatsoever.

BT 16- This is a good light shroud that adds to the milsim look I also added a set of G36 long rails to it for more assessories. It is very light and doesnt way your gun down. Perhaps not as durable and strong as lots of the aluminum shrouds out there but no where near as heavy either. Good product.

AK-47 expansion chamber- This is a fairly heavy assessorie, outside of cosmetic perposes im not expecting this addition to do much in the way of preformence. The big thing that stands out to me about it is how esily it scratches, after I play with it for a week im sure it will be stainless steel in color. I think it is a little pricy for what you get also, it never impressed me a whole lot.

SP Tactical 20" barrel- This barrel really impressed me right out of the box, great milsim design to it and the feel of the barrel was just impressive. I needed the extra langth to fit my custom shroud, BT 16, EGL-47 bracket and fake suppressor. The barrel more then met my expectations it is light for being 20" long and is a great perchase IMO.

AR15 Riser rail- Durrable much the same quality as the Opsgear G36 shroud. Nothing bad to say about it.

Q-loader- What could I say about the Q-loader that hasnt already bein said? Great product, a little finiky if you use the hoses. That is why i decided to direct feed it. No complaints what so ever I like q-loaders if anyone has one and needs help contact "Kodiak" on the Mil-sim empire page or Q-loader forums.

Walther 11 power red dot- Great red dot sight in a semi-scope format I actually had this for a few years great red dot sight.

MR series grips- I really like these grips and I think they are worth every penny there is no comparison the the stock grips. No complaints whatso ever.

of corse the MR2 Weye- My first impressions of the gun are it is by rights the same as my old MR2. At least in terms of durability strangth and weight. As with the original MR2 it is a heavy gun, lift weights. The eyes speak for themselvs and make this gun truly incredible. I think to sum it up its a great gun a tad on the heavyside but IMO it is the best woodsball gun out there.

When I started this project I had a goal. To shut up all the A-5 users who said that the MR2 is no good because it is not customisable enough. you cant do anything "Cool" with it. So I wanted show them that it could be customised into a great gun that had eyes. I think thats the selling point of the marker the Eyes, that and you can practically chop down trees with this sucker its so durrable your deffinatly not worried about breaking it.

With the stock board I think it was a great idea to bring back 3rnd burst that they got away from with the MR3. i also belive having the option of turning the eye on or off in any mode is a great adition to the marker over the MR3's eyes that only work on 1 semi mode, not the other semi-mode or full auto. Not everyone uses the full auto on the MR2's but for the ones that do im sure they will be happy to know there eyes are on and functioning in that mode.

EDIT:A slight problem I forgot to mention is on the stock board the charging terminal is extreamly sloppy so when you go to charge make sure to look at your charger and insure the RED light is on indicating its charging if its not, then its not making contact wiggle it around till it does.
Becaue of this im deducting another 1/2 point, and 1/2 because of the weight.

So for the gun I give it 4 stars out of five, lose only due to the weight of the marker and charging port.

Well the hits keep comming the guys at exotic sportz never got around to sending my launcher until today. They are the worst companyI have ever delt with and if I had anyother choice I wouldnt deal with them again. So it will be like a week for shipping.

Had a little misque with Spyderman723 when I bought his q-loader and he threw some of the stuff out instead of sending it so thats another set back. Now i am in the prossess of figuring that out and getting the parts replaced.

-Still waiting on the custom shroud from X he has bein really bussy lattly and i havnt bein able to get ahold of him the last few days so I cant even tell you if it is shiped or if he still has it. When I know you will know!

-Still waiting on my extra parts for my X chamber although I would emagin there at the post office however I cannot pick them up on the weekend have to wait till monday.

-Of corse by my worysome post I also am still waiting on my grenade launcher they were supposed to ship it Tuesday and didnt do it till Friday so that will still be a wial I just pray it jumps the boarder or im gonna take you up on your offer Irish!

-I also still have to order the CMS socket from Q-loader but there online shopping wont work so I will do that tommorow. We all know what a Q-loader looks like anyway so if that isnt in the pics no biggie but im not throwin up any untill I get the rest of the stuff on there and done.

I have said this alot but I think a week or however long it takes the Launcher to get from Michigan to Alberta Canada. How fast can you drive Irish?
And of corse if X hasnt had a chance to hit up the post office yet that could be the last product in.

So sorry to be jerkin you guys around but i got no control over it anymore at this point. As soon as I get the stuff pics will be posted I can promise you that and I need that to be before May 11th and my scenario game!

Anyway on a positive note I ordered the CMS socket today. No suprise they said they may have to wait a few days before they could ship.

Also I noticed the little valve fell out of my remote at some point in time or the next so i had to order a new remote as well. Thats all the news I have at this point in time again

Someone up there really has it out for you. What, with all the shipping issues and customs.

No kiddin none of you probably realise this but by time im done with the shipping and customs on all these items this project is around 2000$ havnt figured out the exact figure yet, hopin my wife dont either :p
I have had problems with broken products and the like by time they get here to. It's hard to do these projects in canada if you cant find stores here that sell what you want.

Now for great news X pmed last night and said that he shipped the shroud last week so it could be here any day. Once I have that the main body will be done and just waiting on the launcher, and scrub parts. I still have to throw the rails on the shroud but that wont be hard.

I am considering throwing up some pics after I get that on but I dont wanna ruin the shock and awwwww effect of the launcher so asking an honest question: If I do put up some pics before the launcher do you guys think it will ruin the shock effect latter?

Comon Slim... lets be honest here! Nah I didn't say that, but now that he has the idea in my head, and the fact that he obviously only listens to me around here(:D), I might make a suggestion. No one sees this until I fly out to Edmonton and drive down to see it myself first hand!!! (I actually was supposed to go out on May 16th, but I can't make it out anymore, bleh!) So yeah man, do what you want but I think waiting for a few finished product pictures will give the effect you want.

By the way, which site did you do most of your ordering through? I'm looking to try to pick up alot of stuff in one big order instead of 1million different packages, any ideas? Any other border problems with any items? I havn't ran into any yet myself, but it's good to know.

I usually buy all my stuff from Tactical paintball. However most of it they didnt have in stock and they told me they just placed there orders so it would be at least a month before they even re ordered from them again. Im not that patient so I did alot of strait from the dealer buying including

Q-loader (they phoned a store in Canada and had them ship it from there so it was cheeper)
Virtue- 35.00 CUSTOMS
Special ops 30.00 CUSTOMS
Ops gear 15.00 CUSTOMS
extream sportz (havnt got the customs bill yet. I just hope it makes it through.)
ViperX (I got the shroud from)
that doesnt include the shipping just customs.

Those are the US places I bought from. I bought the fallowing from Tactical paintball in Canada

MR2 W/eye
Trinity Ak chamber
AR15 riser
Spring kit
Shim kit
MR series Grips

other places i bought from include
Ebay-G36 Rails

Spyder BST section
Q-pods (From Spidie)
Chrono(From ooglieboogliebob) I need to set the FPS of this new project right! LOL
ACP bolt (From Yoder)
16" barrel (From Maverickgot86ed) Turns out it was far to short for what i needed nice barrel though.


My local PB shop at YGP
SP Tactical 20" barrel
Squeegie

Canadian tire
gun cleaning kit (DONT LAUGH) I had to get another gun cleaning kit because the overall barrel langth including supressor is 26" long there is no Squigee that long so i have to use cleaning rods for a rifle and the .20guage fuzzy swabs. But there real cheep only 2.00 each cheeper then squeegies.

But yeah tactical paintball has bin a fav of mine for some time. your in ontario......

These stores are in ontario dont remember what they are called though.

1-705-645-0186 (This is the store that Q-loader told to send my CMS socket, and I also bought a new JT remote from them for the project.)

613-933-0833 This one is in Ontario to you could try them as well. Sorry i dont remember the names.

Well I checked the mail AGAIN nothing. So here I am on my 1000 post with yet again no pics to show you. :(.

Good news is that I got ahold of the guy at extream sportz and he said he figures i should have NO problem with the launcher going through customs. Bad news is I have to wait till monday to see if they have a tracking number, they do things so screwy there.

Still never got the rail kit, shroud or CMS socket either. Hopefully soon.

slim and shady
05-05-2008, 07:45 PM
Sure will X you get exclusive pics the others dont get to see yet! ;)
I havnt got the shroud yet though, im so excited and every day :( but I guess it just gives me something to look forward to the next day.
But you are right in a sceance actually. i may not have the shroud but thank God the launcher made its way through customs and into my hands. Again I had to pay 35$ for customs but at least I got it!
I installed the Jackhammer II reg and hooked up the air fittings tonight. I still have to custom make the brakets to hold the launcher to the gun but I cannot do that till I get the shroud so that I can get it specific.
I bought a front bracket but sadly its cheep plastic and the arms are to short so i have to extend them or make a new bracket out of aluminum. I may get my machinest friend to see if he can make the brackets. But im not sure yet.

Either way its time for the sad news now, off to work I go for like 2 months! i will be back periodicly like every 3rd or 4th night but I wont be on line every chance I get and i wont get a chance to work on the remainder of this project till Saterday, thats 1 day before my scenario game. But when i come home I will let you know if i got the shroud and rail kit. If I did I will make some mounts and throw up some pictures.

So soon this project will be finished :)

X PMed me and said if it isnt here buy Tuesday to let him know and he will go to the post office and see whats up.

I wouldnt know how to put it up for spyder of the month if I wanted to LOL. Not sure I would get many votes either!

It was a little rocky throwing it together i had to grind a hallow in my ASA so i could properly get the reg to fit in there, I still dont like how the macro line goes from the reg to the launcher, dont like the bracket setup that holds the launcher and I still need to place another rail kit on my battle shroud. There is alot more I wanna do just things drug out to long and everyone wants pics, now they got them. When im compleatly finished I will throw up more.

I wanted to post this right away as well for all the people that were instremental to the compleation of this project.

First and formost- ViperX, for all the help with EVERYTHING. For the custom derlin shroud, extra parts and spport, and for always finding a way to get me out of the trouble spots I was in. Without you this project wouldnt have happened. Thanks

The three stooges, you know who you are. For keeping the thread going and my ambition for the project. It was great to have people who were as excited about it as I was all along the way. Thanks

DFsniper for always answearing questions I had about the project real fast and giving sound advise on it.

All the people who sold me parts and peices dirt cheep through the BST section of this group, if anyone is looking to do a project thats the first and best place to start.

So thanks to everyone who made this happen.

This is what I was looking for best one that I have heard so far.

When i look at this gun, and the pictures do not do it justice at all (Camra phone) I think of war. Now when i think of the wars certin things stand out to me
-People who sacraficed everything
-The Native americans who participated in the unbreakable code even though faced with alot of ridculment from there own army.

I havnt weighed it for sure my scale is broken when I am sure i will put up specs. However i would wager that it is around 25LBS without paint or air. Does it look cool, yup. Is it fun to play around with, yup. Is it practical, :dodgy:

I knew that this would be a heavy overall project, with all the rails, launcher expanchin chamber raisers ect. But honestly the weight of it did astound me it really is a heavy marker but hey, its ment for backrow only no quick fast movements needed! i am really happy with it and the pictures do not do it justice at all I will take better ones when i get my camara back.

Any other ideas for names guys?

Looking at it really it is an intimidating weapon i have showed about 4 people and they all said that, just because it looks mean. There are alot more practical markers out there that do what there ment to do, but this is mine :D

I wanted the bulky mean intimidating look and i think I really pulled that off well. i am happy I went with the Saw stock over the car stock too. I think alot of the little things came together on this marker.
