I just bought this from a friend of mine who got this from someone else. Apparantly the person either trid to beat out the screw or dremal it out. Normally good precision drilling will fix the problem. Well for a $35.00 body kit I'm not going to complain. I might give this a brand new anno once it's finished.

The Body:
ANS Chaos Very nice body kit that was almost ruined.

The Damage:
Look at the left screw hole. It would have been a simple repair if done correctly. However the improper tools were more than likely used and person just parted everything out.

First stage of repair:
This was about a 2 min repair. Very minor work. I got the proper drill bit and removed what was left of the screw. It wasn't worth the effort to try and extract the screw, because there was already so much damage done. So a clean thru hole. Deburred everything. It has an appointment with the welding doctor tomorrow.
It will look a little ugly when it comes back. I'm looking at about $62.00 for a 5 piece new dust finish. Then again I might just resell it and let the new oowner worry about it.

So keep an eye on this and see what happens the next few days.
Later,
Blackrain :D

There's always been debate about how well a weld matches the metal. Can't wait to see conclusive proof one way or the other- but it's gotta be better than holes in a gun!

I have seen guns that were welded over the eye hole and after the annodizing the welding doesnt match the rest of the anno its usually darker i think

If you decide to sell this, I would be interested in it. Let me know on a price and everything like that.

Flo, for someone getting out of paintball, you sure are buying a lot of PB equipment....

And do you have this in mind for the Sniper build?

I'm hoping the results are good. The last results were good. I had the same guy weld on the red body due to off center drilling I did.
Lol.

I can't say that I thought that. Personally, I didn't know what the title meant at first.
