Default Cheap/free upgrades

I though it would be cool if we just shared some of or ideas about how to make are markers better, you no like tell each other what we have done to improve or makres. I learned that if you put a peice of foam behing your trigger you can cut down on double hammering. You can out a heat packet on your c02 tank if you are playing in the cold. I wish someone would tell me about this boring out crap on the fenix i can't find anything and thanks.

Those are some good ideas. Its cool to find out new things other players do to improve their gun for cheap/free. Otters site is great for beginners to get their guns running awesome.

There are also a few stickied threads in the forums, like the ESP forum (if we still have that forum) that show how to do some mods to your gun for cheap...

I also found that if you put the acs bolt in the freezer and then put it in hot water, that will lossin up that spring a bit and ,make it work better. Dont over do it like freeze it then put it boiling hot water cause it will break faster than a car at the Duke reuinion. excuse my grammer, I'm from Iowa, what do you expect lol

And yes, I would check http://www.ottersccustoms.com. I assume you're talking about boring out the VA, which is on otter's website..an easy mod.

www.ottersccustom is hands down the best spyder web site I have evr been to. Not just because of the number of mods but 99% of them are free. If you have some sand paper, a drill and a spyder it is better than or equal to an karnovior lol jk, I wish. But still you make your gun alot better than it already is for almost no money.

I have made a clamping feedneck for under $4. What you do is bring your hopper and feedneck to Home Depot. You look under "Plumbing Supplies" for Copper Pipe Reducers. You find one that is a tight fit on the neck of your hopper (it may even be a little too small) and the other end could be tight on your feedneck or loose (it won't matter, I"ll explain later) You also get a hose clamp that fits around the top part of your reducer.

Cut about 5-6 evenly spaced cuts on the top of your copper reducer with a hack saw or something of the likes(where the hopper will go in) so it can expand and contract. Then you epoxy or crazy glue the other end to your stock feedneck.

You may have to sand the inside of the reducer to allow your hopper to fit snugly. Then use the hose clamp to tighten the top of the feedneck. If the instructions are fuzzy, I'm sorry, and if anyone would like to show me how to insert pics I'd be happy to post some when I get the time.

go to a free image hosting site like imageshack

upload the pic and copy the link they provide into the post on the board.

let us know if you have any questions.
