Yeah I know they don't.....but I was thinking that I might try some funky custom mount.... if I have an extra receiver shell ANYWAY..... maybe I can save myself the 60 bucks for the SP-8 brackets.....
And Slinky... I PM'ed you about the board.

That would be super.... as long as you want less than 29.95 for them like smart parts....... ugg... I know I should have bought a another tippmann...... but the SP-8 is just so pretty.......

Perhaps by LNIB they meant "Loader Neck Is Broken"
If it's holding solid, I wouldn't be too worried about it. If you want to reinforce it until you get the money from the guy, and the new body, fully disassembly the upper receiver, and remove the feedneck (otherwise it will get glued in place) and drill a small hole (smallest bit you have) at the end of the crack - then drip some thin cyano acrylate glue (AKA Crazy Glye - but the thin runny stuff, not the thick "gap filling" kind) on, and let it flow through the crack. The glue will hold it together, the hole will stop the crack from continuing. From there, you can fill the hole with epoxy or thick CA glue.
Certainly, once you've got two bodies, you can do a conversion like this:

I do think that is one pepper of a job there...... ( I already had that one in my bookmarks ) But I am not a huge fan of putting the Q out under the barrel.... I like it ,especially on the SP-8, right up tight against the side of the reciver... I think it look sharp and will be far superior in my style of play. but what I was thinking, was to cut the feedneck, cut down the center of the reciver so I can get a piece of pipe right next to the inner body (down low so I can still use a sight).... and put the q on LEFT side of the gun facing rearward for super fast reloads...... I'll post up some pics when I get started to show you what I mean.
Oh and as for the glue idea..... it is already completely split... so no glue will "slow" it cracking more... sorry I didn't explain it better....and I am worried that no matter what, or how much, glue I use, as soon as I put the feedneck back in it will spread it right back out... oh well I'll be trying something I guess......

YES!!! I finally ran across that site yesterday... I was looking EVERYWHERE to try and find parts without having to go through Smart Parts. I like looking at prices, and figuring what i want and don't want and Smart Parts will not do that for you. you have to call them and know what you want without browsing prices or anything and I hate that. And I couldn't find ANY place that sold SP-8 parts until I found this!! Thanks for the heads up I sure could have used it a week ago!!!
Thanks again for all the help everyone...
