What would be some first thing recommended up grades? I was thinking a 14" J&J ceramic barrel and an ACS delrin bolt. I don't want to turn it into an electric at the moment. What was your first upgrades and do you recommend them.

Thanks,
Badoingle

.... rather ... i'd try to first go with a barrel and electronic hoppers ... since the gravity hoppers seem to have trouble with feeding because of blowback ... Also you could try for HPA ... and later on you could get a electronic trigger ... Besides that ... all you can really do is go LP

stay away from the ACS bolts...they seem to be more trouble than they are worth

^^ QFT... staying with the stock bolt won't hinder your gun at all ... Just do the boltmod by taking the venturi out of the bolt ..

any recommendations on bolts then? I'll take the hopper and barrel into consideration and how would one fill an HPA bottle? Sorry for asking such a dumb question but I am in little town South Dakota.

Thanks again,

well.. if your talking about filling it at home ... don't do it .... since it's pretty dangerous ... unless you know what your doing

But if your talking about some professional filling it .. probably go to the local paintball shop .. and then you can fill it there ...

As for recomendations on bolts ... the AKA lightning bolt is good .. also you can try the ACP Blue Bolt .. or the TigerShark bolt (isn't made anymore) .. but stay away from the superfly bolts ..

The thing is Bob that there isn't a pro shop around here anymore so for right now I will stick with CO2. So I should get a halo hopper and the J&J I wanted?

well it really depends with the hopper ... are you gonna stick around with paintball .. and upgrade your guns and such?? .. if so go for the halo ... if not try an eggy or even a revvy ...

I'v heard some bad revies on the J&J ceramic, but it's all really your choice .. you could also shoot for the CP one piece, or the SP teardrop
