here it is, i believe i put roughly $470 and 5 hours into this gun. Most of the parts were used but still, thats a lot.

i want to say thank you to: pbgrampa for the BL torp, tumtum00 for the t-board & eyes and MVS1 for the frontblock, AA tip and the valve AND to otter, for all the info on how to mod my stock bolt and drill for eyes.

the pics are pretty bad so sorry bout that

Ok... first let me say, whoa to the amount of cash you spent.

Second, let me ask, "why didn't you buy a used, high end?"

...third, all that really matters is that you built it, you like it, you had FUN building it, and that you'll never sell it (I hope, because you'll NEVER get that much back on it unless you MAJORLY part it. Even then you're stretching it)

To each his own, however I feel the need to tell you, that with out a trigger guard you will not be allowed on most fields. It is an insurance regulation.

well i gradually upgraded it, if i would have bought everything all at once, then i probably would have bought a better gun, plus i run co2. i bought this gun about 3 years ago, and have been upgrading since.

oh and bamf, i play at a homemade field, all those other ones are way expensive. i only pay about 30 bucks for 2000 balls at fleetfarm. i'm pretty cheap, but it works alright. plus i live on a farm, my parents own about 500 acres of woods so it works pretty well

might be an illusion, but it looks like there is a gap from the eyes all the way out of the gun. just wondering if thats the case and does it make the gun weak anywhere (shakes bends ect....)?
