Good luck with that. Most people modified them to go full auto by swapping the SMG60 trigger and sear into it. I also seem to recall that they were designed to run on liquid CO2....

Sorry... After seeing so many posts about using a "siphon tank on this marker" you automatically add Anti to it. It's hard not to.

Don't worry about whether or not it comes with a tank. Any CO2 tank can be turned into a siphon tank. All it takes is about 5 minutes of work by an airsmith. Many paintball stores can perform the modification, and it's quite cheap. If there are none around you, try ordering a tank by phone from Arizona Paintball Depot (www.arizonapaintballdepot.com). Explain what you need, and they'll fix you up.

The marker itself is an awesome marker, well back in the 80s it is. Cost wise you're looking to drop at least $300 for one in decent shape. The stripper clips are great, but on full auto you're out of ammo in roughly 8 seconds, leaving you to fire blanks.

Reloading is pretty good and easy, the catch basket gets caught on alot of branches and tends to fall off every now and then.

Enjoy your hunt.

I personally would look into the 68 Special. Its basically the same with a direct feed. Much nicer to not have to deal with the stripper clips.

While I wouldn't consider it a super reliable marker because of the scarcity of parts to be found these days, their a blast to shoot. Its a massive machine that spews out clouds of liquid Co2, and oil alike. Its made with crude (although very durable) parts that produce a sizable kick for a paintball marker. Not to mention the tremendous BANG it makes while firing its unported barrel.

They're more of a collector's item these days but that doesn't mean you should let it collect dust. If you can find one that works, buy all means use it. But like you said, use it as a secondary marker.

Seems to me if you want something that is more of a 'magazine fed' option, going Q-loader would be more beneficial. Firstly, each Q-pod holds about 5 times the ammo of the stripper clip, and secondly the Q-loader can be rigged onto most any marker...meaning that you don't have to go looking through the 'rare and the beautiful' and could E-bay a M98C+ for the cheep, and be rock steady with your backup. I do hope you find what you are looking for, though,
