all right my idea is basically making different "backs" for the a-5 flatline barrel that way you could use it with other markers and such. you would have to mill/cnc it out of aluminum and have a tap and dye set handy for the bolts and such. I could see this opening up a whole new market to the flatline barrel, so that its not just specifically for tippmanns. any thoughs or concerns are welcome, i will do my best to respond to you in a timely manner.

Not to be a Negative Nancy but I think the BT Apex Barrel Tip accomplished this already.

yeah i do understand that but i would have to say that it depends on what the player uses. Me i like the flatline over the apex simply because of how it "feels", aiming and etc. and i would love to try it on my miltec g2 but hey thats just me. btw thank you for your thoughts.

Another issue you are going to have is the twist-lock connection to the A5 keeps the barrel upright. When you start adapting it to a strickly threaded barrel you are going to run into allignment problems. It the flatline is not rotated enough or over rotated the "backspin" will cause the ball to hook left or right instead of adding distance. You will need to make sure your threading is perfect so that the flatline is upright. Just something to think about. Good luck. Post some pics when you get something together. I'd love you see your prototype.

yeah xrugger i did figure that was going to be an issue, but i guess when i get one made (local mech. shop) they are going to hate having to get that just right. But on the other hand though im also looking at machining a body for my miltec g2 from aluminum or something like that, because when they made the g2 and g1 series they tapped a 2 1/2 inch space with about 5 holes (release of pressure is my concern.) on either side of the marker. But it will be a beast when its finished

you could make an adaper with different threads on it for different markers and you just screw it in instead of the barrel and then you put the back of the flatline into it and the adapter has some screws in it so you could tighten it down once the flatline is on right.
Furthermore - if you are "deuce-ing" during a game, you have more things to worry about than camo kneepads. -ger

When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave the world wondering how the hell you did it.

I wonder if I could turn one of those "Rascal" scooter thingies into an old-guy paintball tank? -Violator
