It's the newer version of the T1 kit (The One kit). Actually, it's pretty much the same thing as the Dragun T1 from a couple years ago. Excellent upgrade to change from a blowback to electro pneu....

Deff a good upgrade option for spyders..

Whats their website?

bad trig frame i think tho ... what board it got?
The website is www.custompbsolutions.com but the site is down. I got mine today and found a catch. I have used gold cup oil since 93 and the zip kit requires grease to be used. The instructions say that oil will damage the solenoid. I am fixing to start a local search for Dow 33. Anyone in The Oklahoma City area know where it can be found?

Any paintball store there will have it - ask for shocker lube. I guess I should have told you that in my first post. Do you live in the City? Cool - another Okie boy!
Blink effect - the board is similar to the Dragun board, not any of these new whizbang boards out. They do make a T board for it though, but it's not really needed.

Frat - Splatter in Moore 912-0961. You either want Shocker lube or something equivalent. John will hook you up.

Well vike if your like me you love your eyes.... So i would suggest buying the T-board for the eyes... Also that it is fully adjustble and you can get ramping or other options..
05-25-2006, 06:48 AM
So, the ZIP doesn't come with eyes? I thought it did. In that case, yeah, the tboard would be a better option.
(The Dragun T1 kit did have eyes is why I'm confused on this....)
I'm actually out in Harrah. Do you guys ever go to N5 to Play?
05-25-2006, 09:29 AM
Too far for me, and waaaaaaaaay too far for vike.

Scratch that, I'll be there Sunday.
I will be there tomorrow but depending on my schedule Sunday and how much paint I shoot tomorrow I may be back out there Sunday.
05-27-2006, 05:35 AM
I'll be at N5 as well....
Matt from Splatter is having a going away party I believe I heard 11:00a. I shot a whole case which is rare for me but it was a fun day. Anyway there should be a very good sized crowd out there tomorrow.

So if I get there at around 1'ish, am I going to miss out on everything???
05-28-2006, 06:43 AM
Just 2 hours of people talking noise, shooting most their paint over the chrono and other pointless activities.
Most of the play was on the x-ball field which I try to stay off of. X-ballers are their own strange breed. For the most part I don't go into their little world and they don't go into the woods. I didn't play much and reff'ed a little. It was kinda a slow day for me.

Were you there yesterday? Which one were you?
I was in the digi camo with the modified MR1.
05-29-2006, 04:38 PM
Hmmm, short memory and attention span here - were you wearing the white wife beater??? Spent some time with the group on that HUMONGUS speedball field west of the Xball field?
No if I was playing I was wearing Digi BDUs, when I reffed just had on a dark gray t-shirt and the BDU pants. If you played on the speedball field you probably played with me. I did not miss many games on it.

I was the one in the camo FKH Army jersey sporting the pIMP.
05-30-2006, 04:36 AM
I was the one in the black and green jersey with the skullflake on it. Shooting the blue shocker with the Ton Ton frame.
Vike did you get friendly fired by a kid in blue on the speedball field?
05-30-2006, 07:52 AM
Not that I remember. I only played on the Xball field and one game of 1 vs 1 on the spool field with Chris...
Our paths probably did not cross then except in passing. I try to stay off the x-ball field. We had a kid in a blue sweat shirt that lit up one of his own team mebers (a guy in a green and black jersey) and then went on to bunker some poor guy at the bottom of the Snake. It was his first time playing and he got a little carried away. I reffed that game and went to talk to him but his dad was already on him about it so I figured that was good enough.

I was in the digi camo with the modified MR1.
If yours was the MR1 with the top of the stock cut, then I think I saw at least the gun walking the field. I thought it looked kind of unique.
The bunch on the XBall field was insane. Random groups of 5-on-5 in some incredibly fast games. I think the average game was under a minute. If you watched any games, I was also the guy who started each game on one knee in the back center due to my knee.
Insane is a mild word. I watched but it was mostly to watch people get blown up. One of the guys pulled his shirt up and I bet there 15-20 welts on his back some with broken skin. Allot of paint fired and N2 spent. It was my MR1 you saw. As soon as I can get a new sear I am going to put the egrip back on it. If I can keep the e-markers at a distance I have a fair enough chance but in close the mechanical markers just can not match paint

I wonder if that's the guy I lit when he tried to get to the back corner off the break. On that field, unless you have ungodly speed there was NO WAY to make that corner! It was pretty funny, first I hit him about 8-9 times, then two other guys ended up lighting him up after I hit him!
It was definitely pretty wild! I was the short guy that usually started the game directly beside or behind Chris, then ATTEMPTED to bump to the rolly or out to the side - because it was usually blow up time when that happened.
Vike where do you and Chris live?
05-31-2006, 06:49 AM
I'm in the city, vike is in the northwest part of the state. Out of respect for his privacy, I'll leave it to him to say exactly where.

I live in Woodward.
Wow, didn't realize There were so many of us Okies here....DJ Katt RMX, thechubbs12, *Justin*, The Beautiful, and Maverick (I haven't heard from these last two in awhile though.)
Did I miss anyone? Sorry if I did!
Dang you drove from Woodward to play!!!!!

At some point and time we will need to organize an Okie get together. Find a field that is more centrally located and play. When I was stationed up at Philly I used to drive 45 min or so into Jersey to play or about an hour and a half west into Penn to play. Now I am fortunate enough to live with in 20 minutes of 3 fields. I only play at N5 though.

We tried it a couple of times, but it always feel through for one reason or the other. I'd be up for it though, of course, depending on date, place and time!
