So now I have a rare bodied timmy with a little more up to date part's!

I still have to get a couple more thing's. I plan on getting a CCM no-pro or no-rise feedneck (haven't decided which and CCM is having a closeout sale on them so I better hurry). I also have to get a set of grip's that allow me to see the LED light and I think both are getting ordered next week. Gonna get a new barrel proabably a CP barrel dunno yet though!

Almost done but meh.. It might be up for trade!

I tried to do a "walking the trigger aiming blah blah" shot but it didn't come out right but I'm really bored sitting at home with a broken toe still so I have a lot of time on my hand's!

Nice JB. Like Tim though I'd like to see a video.

I don't know how well a video would do with me shooting it! I've played semi twice in 10 month's so the rate of fire with me walking might not be up to par! Might just do PSP setting's though haha!!!

Heres what you do. Have a friend that is good at walking a trigger shoot the gun for you. When you video tape it don't so him, at most only show his fingers. Then you can say it was you.

Well I did get to shoot it today and even though I was using crap paint and it had a leak it shot great in semi mode once I got my finger's going! I really really thought about trading it for a Buzzard but I think I might keep it around for awhile! Weird I've had a marker for almost three month's and it's killing me to even think about trading it!

Very hot, I think an Ultralite or Pepperstick would flow well with that, a CP would look good too.

Very nice job on the ninja Ironmen. Might want to hang on to it since they are pretty rare nowadays.

The guard looks terrible, to be quite honest... Doesn't match the frame at all... Maybe better once you put grips on, but I don't dig the look...

It's growing on me... lol and I think the issue is the grips... It's like... Lumpy gun... Lumpy guard... Smoooooooth frame...

Your kinda right but I definitely don't want to get rid of the Ironmen trigger gaurd. I think to fix the smooth frame I'm gonna get a CP snatch grip which I think will help but really I don't think it's off too much!

It doesnt look awful with the guard, once the grips get on it will improve alot IMO.

I'm still looking for a set of grip's. I almost bought the grenade hybrid's but I don't think would look too good. If I could find them in black/grey that would be alright but dang I ain't paying $26 plus shipping for a set up grip's. I dunno Ima keep searching!

Edit-
I just bought these grip's for $17 shipped and since my trigger frame has a clear plastic window I'm gonna cut out the red/clear window in the grip cause the red clashes. Then I think I'm going to attempt to dye the grey a dark black. I've done it before and it should work! I think it will look pretty good!

I purchased Dow 55 and the grip's today. Now just needing a new barrel and possible a new feedneck!

Hey should I ditch that big white gauge for a smaller one with a black background? If so what brand should I get or is there any difference?

Yeah I'm glad I didn't get rid of it as I'm pretty sure I would have regret it. Got my Dow 55 lube today, my grip's yesterday and I think my barrel kit will show up tomorrow or saturday so hopefully I'll fix this leak and hit the field sunday woot woot!!

Let me know if you don't fix that leak. I'm sure I can help you get it running before Sunday.

Fred
Last night I put some lube on all the o-ring's on the ram and the cap on the back and the leak is almost gone. I dry fired it a couple times and it was getting better but still a very very faint leak! I'll tinker more when I have time tomorrow!

If the leak is minimizing as you shoot, it sounds like the cupseal just needs broken in. Maybe that's it, let me know.

I'll try and tinker a little more tonight after I get off work and back from the gym and hopefully get more info that way I'm not waiting till sunday morning to get it up to par as I don't have a lot of time saturday now!

My Empire 4 piece barrel kit came in today though! All I'm waiting on is my CCM feedneck and I'm done till I send the body off but that's gonna be a while though!

Thanks for the help,
JB.
