Default Extreme makeover paintball edition.

Started with this.


Then this.


Made this.


Hitmen (or chickun wing) pump mod.



I got sick of taping my hopper's as I have a bunch of different one's I use so I bought this cocker with a threaded feedneck so I can put a clamping one on. Bought a CCM it should be here wednesday! I kept my Torpedo reg as I it's just awesome. Also getting new grip's that will match the body better!

So far so good. I'm liking it! :P

Oh yeah all excess part's will be up for sale shortly.

JB

Yeah I'd like to get a reg that the fitting goes into the bottom and pressure adjust's from the side. I think I should have straighen out the chickun wing better.

i green cp reg would look great. and maybe a stop to a hardware store you could get some stuff so that you could mount a rail then mount a specops foregrip on and replace the chicken wing (although that could be a bit bulky, i dunno im just throwing out ideas) i think you could probibly make a good one with some copper tubing and coper elbows (so you dont have to bend it identically) if you can get it that skinny (then spray paint)

I gotta get new grips too. Those greyish stickies don't match anything on there.

Any suggestion's anybody?

JB.

Nice job on the hitman pump mod JB. Is your pump stroke really smooth/soft enough to work the pump with your index finger though? If so, I'm impressed. I've never mastered the art of springing my Sniper well enough to make the stroke that smooth.

As for the grip color, maybe look around for some of those smart parts wooden grips. I saw some light green NIB wood panel grips go up on ebay recently for dirt cheap. If not wood, maybe look into the contract killer grips. Maybe they make something in green.

Did you ever figure out what kind of feedneck threads you have on that eclipse body? If so, what are they?

The pump stroke was pretty smooth but I do need a light spring return to get it to work right but with this body and all eclipse/nexus internal's it's a piece of cake to pull it back. I also have to sand the guide rod as I got a little glue on it and it's hindering the performance. Should be fixed by the weekend.

Feedneck is cocker threading but it's either messed up or the feed I have just doesn't match up right. Nonetheless I ordered a CCM neck and if it won't fit right it's getting rigged on!

Grip's I'm still up in the air at the moment. Might pick up something locally so I get the right color green.

Oh Dave if you want a pre made hitmen pump mod to tinker with pm me I have a ton of them. It's just a stainless steel pipe hanger that we have at my work!

JB.
