Pistol Primary Discussion ...for those of us who use a pistol as a primary

Anyway, last week was kind of a bummer because we had a nice big game going and my overlord started leaking. I thought it would be an easy fix but...was not so instead of sitting out for the day I decided to go with my old backup marker(my sonix)...It was a sad day to have to leave my overlord all by its lonesome. Oh well, it should be back up and going by this weekend.

i've got two ptextremes being modified for co2 tanks and a zeus that i'm probably going ot sell to a friend for his sidearm.

steel line macro line - you have to buy it unless you have spare parts sitting around.
you don't need to tap into a 12 gram. all you have to do is remove the 1/8"npt plug from infront of the trigger and install the air line then leave an empty 12 gram in to act as an expansion chamber.
i had to buy a duckbill because the only bottomline asa's i had were the offset spyder holes not inline holes.

For some reason that doesn't sound like it would work too well. It seems like the walls of a 12 gram would be too thing to get a good thread going. I would probably much rather just buy a dummy 12 gram for 25 bucks.
It seems like the PT Extreme is pretty easy to convert to CA though. I wish my OVERLORD was that easy.

That's one of the problems I have with the overlord as well. It'd be nice if it had a dropout changer that sealed properly and also had more of a closed bolt design. The only other problem I have with it besides those is the feed clip. It'd be nice if it didn't have all the holes in it and if the spring loader nub/slot wasn't located on the top but on the side like the zeus design. My ideal marker would be an overlord with a closed bolt, dropout changer, and a zeus designed feed clip that was modified for quick loading.
I don't know if such a pistol exists that functions as well in reality as it does in theory. The PT Extreme kind of comes close but still falls short.

oops, my bad, I meant sealed bolt. Not closed bolt. The problem I have with the quick cap is that it takes too long to pull it off, push back the spring, fill up and then push it back it. My preference is to drill a hole in the back of the clip just forward of the resting position of the spring/pusher which allows you to just dump your 10 rnd tube in that way. It shaves a couple of seconds off reloading times.
