Default Prototype Clear T2 Pump Handle

After sending out numerous request to the usual "paintball" machine shops and getting turned down by them all, all stating they wouldn't work with the material, I turned to a local shop that took on the job.

Sneak peek of prototype #1 of the T2 clear pump handle:



I had it milled from clear polycarbonate (same as lexan/bullet proof glass)

It is milled to the stock shape but has a few "ridges" milled into it much like the you would find on the CCM pump kits.

I didn't really get a chance to test it since this one was miscut, I only had it for about 5 mins. You can't really tell from the pic but the hole for the guide rod was drilled to short and it prevented the gun from even cocking all the way.

Its already back at the shop waiting in line again to get redrilled.

I'll get more pics when i get it back from the shop in a few days.

Yeah, I don't know why CCM is so adamant on only using delrin, but major props on the initiative to go out and get one done yourself. Looks hot as hell.

CCM claims they were cracking, but I am not sure what material they were using.

Probably plexi, I haven't really heard of Polycarbonate cracking while being machined, mind you, your design is a little less intricate than the stock handle, so maybe the material was heating up a bit too much when milling their design.
