I guess I'm kinda ripping off Pinokio with the hopper-c*ck mod, but from what I've heard they weren't the originators of this concept anyway. I'm not trying to carry 400 rounds, that 110 tank is heavy enough, and 23bps is plenty fast for the Blackheart board. I just need a little more room to dump my 150 round pods in before I make a move.

It's a VL 140 round pod chopped off about 3/8 above the flare, notched out and seated into the ball ramp inside the hopper. No glue or fasteners needed because of the way I notched it out, it's SOLID. I'm surprised at how good it turned out because I usually just make a mess of everything I touch. :happy: The hole in the hopper was cut (carefully) with a 2.25 inch hole saw and touched up with a hacksaw blade, knife, and sandpaper. The angle is just about perfect, I wanted it to be perpendicular to the barrel but it ended up tilted down a degree or two. No biggie though, tilt it back just a hair and it dumps into the hopper just fine.

Also chopped the neck of the hopper to get a slightly lower profile.

The barrel is new, Special Ops 4 inch C Series of course, cut down my Trinity shroud to 3.75 inches, drilled and tapped a couple holes. I may or may not put the other three rails back on the top and sides, haven't decided yet. Can't wait to shoot and see how that barrel works out, I expect it to be louder than the stock barrel since there's no porting, and I guess it will be less accurate too. Should make breaching a little more comfortable, which is what I'm after.

Perhaps it's just the way the light falls, but everything looks like a target to me.

haha, good looking, but that tank seems way out of place there- given it's about 50% of the bulk of the marker rig, by that picture. :happy:

Don't I know it. It's kind of a necessity for 30 v 30 games and scenarios where you have to walk back a 1/2 mile for air, I also carry anywhere from 5 to 11 guppies depending on the field.

I'm hoping to get a Blackcell body next year so I can put a stock on it and go back to remote. Lots of $$$ though.

Yup, macroline is in the way now though so it doesn't drop down. I guess I could trim the macroline shorter. Maybe if I warm the maacroline with a blow dryer a little bit it will be more pliable and I can get a tighter radius?

Thank you!

Either make the bend of the macro go towards the back of the marker or aim the 90's at each other and use a really short peice of macro (use a very sharp razor blade and make sure to make 90 degree cuts) Nice looking marker though.
don't know if I'd try the blow dryer thing, might decreas the integrity of the line. You don't want a line to split under pressure.

put a staight fitting on the reg (or replace with something like CP reg), and turn the 90* on the ASA upwards?

I don't see the point of the shroud and handle. Couldn't you just hold on to the reg?

ah, yeah, that's what I was wondering.
