I was wondering the name of this tube on top of this marker that holds paintballs. Can you just buy the tubes or do people make them?

That's a stock-class feed tube. Common on old Sheridans, it's soldered together.

That marker is a Palmers Pug with a Sergison K frame. The gun without the frame can be purchased from Palmers Pursuit Shop.

Other types of stock class marker use a feed tube that is held on with screws.
That kind can be puchased separately and sometimes modded to different guns.

Old-fashioned stick feeds were common, just a length of PVC tubing you stuck on the feed neck instead of a hopper.

Close, it's a Palmerized PMI-1. Nobody ever knows without me telling them, though, and it shoots like a Pug. :dodgy:

What marker are you trying to mount one on? That kind of brass tubing can be bought from Palmers, or from a guy named tymcneer on MCB, however unless you're actually working with a brass Sheridan or Palmers gun, it's not worth it-PVC pipe is a lot cheaper and a lot more oldschooltastic. Alternately, there are a number of modders out there who will mount pistol springfeeds on whatever gun you want for a fee.

I found this one on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...4=263602_263622
but I think I will go down to the paintball shop tomorrow and see how it works so I can make my own. I am planning to turn a BT-4 combat into a pistol for non lethal home security (pepper and hard re-balls) and as a back up for paintball.
does anyone know of a site where I can purchase a small refillable co2 tank?
I want to have a forward facing tank with an led flashlight that would twist on with the co2 in a single turn. I also plan to eliminate the safety switch to reduce steps.
I know it will not be very accurate with a short barrel but I only plan to use it for close quarters.

I don't have many pests I just think a less lethal approach would be good to have around the house (this also allows me to spend money on paintball in disguise!! wink wink). Plus we currently kind of have a skunk problem.
I'm just interested in converting what I have. I'm creating a new project here not just buying something.

PVC or Copper from the hardware store is your friend for a cheap feed. Can be made super cheap, just will look super ghetto. :wub:

put out some golden malrin.. kill the little bastard... i knocked out 3 raccoons in 1 night with that stuff.. tired of them things knocking my trash over every week..

and everyone in my neighborhood knows not to mess with me.. although we do have new neighbors to the rear... i might go outside one day with my marker and pretend to be tuning the sight on it... give them a little hello this is the nutball that lives behind you approach...

they had a party last weekend.. and they were all being loud... i foresee fun things happening with these turd heads..

back on topic. that thing you found on ebay looks like it would fit my overlord.

it won't fit your Overlord. PT's mount in like two set posts...you slide the little nub towards the other and put the feed on, let go of nub, it slides back and locks the feed into place. Overlords slide over a rail built into the marker, then the little nub jumps up slightly before dropping and locking the slide into place. Looks similar from the outside, quite different up close.
