Hey guys, getting closer to finishing the grips.

I have added a few new ones to the album below. They are primed grey and are almost ready for casting in black resin. Just need to add texture for a better grip.

Since we haven't heard from this guy in about a month, looks like another hype us up just to let us down thing that seems to hit these types of sites sporadically. IOW, don't hold your breath on this -

If it happens then it happens. Between now and then life - and paintball - goes on.

Hey Dragon, thanks for the confidence vote. I assume you have never made anything like these. Please correct me if I am wrong.

If I am going to sell these I am sure you all want them to be as perfect as possible. Creating a near-perfect master from which to cast is a challenge at best. Given the holidays and actually working a full time job, not to mention a wife and 3 kids it is difficult to find time to finish anything.

I have been delayed as I found that one of the grip sides was not fitting flush to the marker handle. In all I have read that you guys want a grip that will fit as tight to the marker as possible unlike the stock grips. As a result I had to actually break the one side in half and rework it. Very frusterating and time consuming if you can imagine.

Also I am trying to be unique in how I represent the texture on the grip. To be different I am going to represent the grip texture a the words "WARFARE" running down the grip face. This is based on my company name which is "Warfare Designs".

I will post some new pics very shortly. Thank you all, including Dragon for your patience.

Pat

Hee hee, thought that might get you from clinging on to the woodwork. We hear this stuff all the time and if someone doesn't say, "Hey, I'm still tinkering", faith kinda dissipates -
