The Micro Rock is a little fatter than the regular LPR that comes on most WGP cockers while the SCMIII is a beast... just like the regular Rock regulator they are massive. The difference in LPRs is just that some are easier to adjust and will operate at lower pressures honestly I have never had an issue with an LPR in my life but I do really like the micro rock. A shroud would fit on my marker if I wanted it to yes but shrouds are not needed by any means. The only problem I have without running a shroud is when i get hit there it can be a pain to clean depending on how well the hit was. I have never had a hose knocked off by a paintball they are on there really well.
Dual stabilizers is possible because palmers manufactures a female stabilizer that allows you to screw the bottle directly into it. It replaces the ASA on your grip with a regulator which will allow for a 140psi difference in bottle pressure before a 1psi difference in the marker. It is like your CO2 tank would be the same as an HPA tank basically.
Your non essential parts basically amounts to $40-50 lol. I would suggest if you want a body... buy it off ebay... if you deal with FBM just contact them and ask what bodies they have that they could ship you right away because you heard they have issues from the black cobra body guy they will DEFINITELY know who you are talking about. I ordered my body and received it I believe... 4 months later? It was ridiculous... Ebay is your best choice for a cheap body. FBM is ok to deal with as long as they HAVE the part and HAVE it anodized. Then you may be ok... They did send me a backblock, feedneck, Vertical ASA Adapter, and hammer kit for my wait. If you deal with them and you don't see your item within a week or 2 get on them and don't let up till they give it to you.
Another thing... If you want to talk to me add me on AIM/Yahoo: NickMoore04 or MSN: email@example.com and we can discuss issues or concerns there... it's easier and faster than forum responses.
