Do you mean to hold paint or for cosmetics. If you want to hold paint then PM Slim as he has done that for his Trracer as for cosmetic I do not know sorry.

yup works great however finding springs is a pain. But it is ver cheep and easy to do. Like I said the only hard part is finding springs. With my pumps I just go with the old style rock and cock but it has a low BPS so there is no issues with that. I only made the spring mags and they work great I really like it for limited ball games.

Cosmetics is just another term for asthetics.

Ok so both of those terms basically mean looks and appearance.

yeah ive made mags that force feed paintballs into the gun each one holda about 18 shots in it. if you want to know about it let me know. they work realy well for people that dont want a hopper in the way but dont shoot as much.

if your using a semi auto, it basicaly turns into a pump if you have to tilt it to shoot each time, with a spring you can fire at will. it is compleatly uncompairable, I have used both styles.

because the tube is horizantal you have to tip the gun back for a paintball to roll back to the feed tube. pics are to much of a pain in the ass now, would have to take one, put it on the computer upload to phoptobucket (takes forever with dial up) resize ect soooooo no pics sorry. tell the mods to put the handy button thingamajigy back on here and I will put up all the photos you want!

Yup, I got that part with gravity tube, and kinda got decsription with spring. But, how do you load it? Is tube fixed to gun, spring is a cap, you open, load manualy and then you push the cap? Or you have preloaded tube with spring in it?

preloaded tub with a spring in it. I use a 90* 3/4 electrical PVC fitting attached to the marker inplace of a feedneck, 3/4 pvc slides and holds secure into that. whan thinking of the tubes think of something similer to an ariakon mag spring setup. then you just pull the endcap slip it in the fitting and rlease the tension on the spring to push on the stack.

Aha, I see. Well, I knew how som eof them look from the outside, but had no idea how to make one mechanism by myself. I have such plastic tubes, inner size is perfect for PB, but I was afraid if I cut along the lenght of it for spring release, it will become too fragile.
