Just bought this puppy a few weeks ago. I am totally in love with it, my teammates helped me tune it up to perfection. I still have to get a sticky grip for the Proline Autoresponse trigger frame I bought with it (pictured below). Top pic is a .68 Classic with a Lvl. 10 Bolt installed, a 12" J&J Ceramic, and a 14" OTP.

I would love to get an Engler kit to convert this to a Thompson, even though thats a little out of my price range for a cosmetic mod.

Very nice!!!
How well does that auto response frame perform?
More importantly, how fast?

This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is mine.

I havent had a chance to play with the response trigger. I need a grip and a trigger shoe for it.

Sweet, sweet. I just don't really like the looks of the barrel, but otherwise, awesome. Let us know how the grip goes.

Classics rock. I'm interested to see how that trigger frame works out.

Nice...that frame shoots a ball on the pull and a ball on the release, right?

Ironically, I just sold my classic 68 about 24 hours ago. I had so much trouble with mine, it constantly chopped paint. I am not sure if it was something to do with my nubbins and the twist lock barrels (which I have heard do have problems) or if I am just trying to pump out too much paint too fast on the old lady, but it was time to give it up for me.

When I was out at the Wayne Dollack event about a week ago, four times I chopped paint so bad that I needed to head back to the car to clean it out. Perhaps it was just never meant to be with me and my mag.

it was more than likely the twistlock barrel on yours. those suck so badly. also, the tuning on them can be fickle.


i think EPIC uses automags so much cause they actually work. the trigger frame came with the gun, but i want to say its priced around $80.

Twistlock barrels don't give problems. The nubbins on them do. Just replace them with plastic nubbins, which are like $1, and you'll be fine. And the lvl 10 bolt eliminates chopping completely. And the X-valve, which includes the lvl 10, is the fastest recharging paintball valve in the world.

I tried plastic and metal nubbins and I was still double feeding and chopping. Yeah I could have upgraded to the Level 10, but as I said before, I though the ~$80 was better spend elsewhere

It wouldn't have been. The Level 7 bolt, and in particular certain Venturi bolts, were known for chopping like crazy. Chopping is not a phenomenon I know, or have known for a very long time.
