Default Upgrade help

I was looking around for a suitable barrel and sight rail, so far I have an m4 style barrel(which is what I want) and a m4 sight rail. http://rap4.com/paintball/os/spyder-...el-p-2683.html, http://rap4.com/paintball/os/spyder-...le-p-1876.html
But the thing is they are really expensive and i don't want to blow my budget. So I was wondering if there is any other alternatives that look good, is in my budget and m4 style.

What's your budget? Gotta give us an idea how much you're willing to part with or its kinda hard for everyone here to throw in their ideas.

If you remove the shroud then you're open for more options.

I can't justify shelling out 85$ plus shipping for what probably is a mediocre barrel just for the handgrips and front sight. You can buy those independantly and put them on your favorite barrel. You have so many more options and could really save some $$ if you look around. Also any weaver
m16/m4 rail will work, even from airsoft markers or even off of tippmans line of x-7 rails and upgrades that use the weaver rail to mount on. RAP4 can be costly if you go that route.


You could always get a flatline shroud for $14 like this one with accessory rails. Just make your own barrel to shroud adapter(ring) make it out of plastic, PVC etc.

solid aluminum shroud and four composite rails
JCS R.I.S. 4-RAIL KIT no holes
7/8 MIL-STD Style Accessory Rails



If you go to PBreview.com, look up the low-end mechanical markers and search for "viperm1" Look at the ViperM1 military and look at the user's photos, there should only be one there and it's a photo of my ViperM1 marker where I made my own custom hand guard out of PVC, painted it with truck bedliner spraypaint from walmart for a rubberized coating and it looks awesome! You can drill it with holes for looks or add weaver rails to mount fore-grips, lasers etc. I did all that with just scrap I had in my garage and a little help from a dremel.

For a barrel I have decided on the Trinity accurate barrel http://www.anythingxtreme.com/Trinit...15891C905.aspx But what i cannot find is an m16 style front site and back that is under 50 i guess. The only one i can find is this that will fit http://rap4.com/paintball/os/spyder-...le-p-1876.html

You're right, RAP4 has the best front sight for the looks and will fit a paintball barrel. Tippmann is coming out with some cheaper plastic versions that aren't quite milsim for the X-7 but they will fit a paintball barrel and can give you a front sight. It all really depends on your preferrence and budget.

The carry handle, well there are plenty of those and if you watch for them on ebay they can go pretty cheap, some are for airsoft, some are for actual rifles, but in essence they all look the same and as long as they are weaver mountable they will work. The only difference between RAP4's carry handle and other generic brands may just be the length of the handle itself, maybe other RAP4 carry handle owners can verify what lenght their handle is, then just ask whomever your buying the carry handle from what the length is before you buy.

UPDATE: There is a carry handle on Ebay for $22-buy it now with a $16.00 auction start(Item number: 120099903267).
Plus many others for far less than $50.

Just type in "Carry Handle" under sporting goods.
