Topics I've Started
05 December 2007 - 12:44 AMNormally, I would wear full Multicam BDU's (in the newer ACU cut) which I have loved for some time now when I had lived in So Cal, but since moving to Texas back in March, the heat and humidity in North Texas is too much to bear in regular camo. I mean, back in So Cal, I had no problems playing when it was even 100 in the shade, but the humidity in Texas is just way too much for regular BDU's (if you are not used to it). So for awhile now, I have been using the Invert woodland camo jersey and the XSV camo pants (made by Clutch). They made playing out here bearable, but they just had way too much black in them, and not enough of the camo pattern to be decent for concealment. I could have bought the SpecOps digi jersey gear, but to me the colors are just too dark, I liked Multicam for its chameleon qualities to conceal in almost any terrain. And I sure as heck was not impressed with the PCS camo jersey gear, nor any of the ACU camos available (though I think those are excellent for winter!).
Now, I just got my new Omnipat gear in time for a scenario game over this past weekend out in Harwood, Texas, which is somewhat north of Houston, and east of San Antonio. The temps were in the high 70's to the low 80's, with high humidity due to it being cloudy most of the time, and occasional sprinkles. The game started on Saturday at 10 AM, and ended Sunday at 2 PM - non stop except for a few meal breaks.
I was totally blown away by these new Omnipat Fusion camos! Even in the heat and humidity, the only part of me sweating, was my face where the foam padding of my Grill mask was. Everything else was quite comfortable, though later when I switched from using the vest and remote with my X7 to an NXe pod harness and my 07 EGO, it was even better. Nearly felt like I was just walking around in a T-shirt
The Omnipat camo performed beyond expectations! Everyone who saw them in the camp area (and those who did NOT see me in the game) were extremely impressed. There were some comments that it was "too green", and a few said "too brown" - but that was because it actually DID keep changing its color qualities in different light and background terrain. Well, after using these, lets just say that the new Omnipat Fusion camo are now my PRIMARY camos, and the Multicam gear has now been shoved into the back of my closet.
To give a fairly decent persepective on how they compare, here are a few pics of me in the Omnipat gear next to other camos. When I got my new Operative vest in Omnipat, it was missing the 2 pouches I normally have on the right side, so I had to take the 2 off my Multicam Operative vest. So you can also see a closer difference right on the vest itself between the 2 camos.
Omnipat vs ACU
Onmipat vs Marpat
Omnipat vs Multicam (notice how much greener the MC looks here!!!!)
Not a side by side, but here is our Smart Parts team jersey in old Tiger Stripe, and the SpecOps Digi pants at the same event
And here is one with me out in the bush during the game
And just for giggles, here is me ages ago in what used to me my favorites, the British DPM camo (a much superior woodland pattern in my oppinion!)

Bought a new 07 EGO, so don't want to mess with the Cockers anymore. I would like to try and get $480 for it.
It comes with the box and all manuals (and the ancient DVD they still send out LOL) as well as:
CP OOPS reg
Belsales 44Mag (NEXUS) ram and both matching QEV
camo pneumatic cover
EGO clamping feed neck
both a regular and a "low blow" bolt from Alamo City Paintball
genuine PE "E" rubber grip as well
It has one very slim scratch on the right side, and some wear where the barrel screws in. Otherwise perfect. #35 of 50 = box says it's a C1

I have one too many markers, so am going to let this one go. It is a modified A5 with these items:
Tippman Response Trigger
OpsGear Flatline RIS shroud
Tippman Flatline barrel (inside the shroud)
OpsGear G36 folding stock
OpsGear M16 mag with sliding door and tool compartment
Offset hopper adapter
Ricochet A5 hopper
BSA Red Dot scope (pic shows ACOG, but I am keeping that one)
For a better perspective of what the buyer will get:
The OpsGear RIS Flatline shroud alone cost me over $130 when new (and it still is pretty much new, only used twice and you can see how clean the whole gun is)
The Flatline cost me over $100 new (and also only used twice - had to buy a new one cause the old original A5 FL I had did not fit the new shroud, it was too long, so had to go and buy a new one when I found one that fit inside it)
The OpsGear G36 folding stock was about $60 new
The OpsGear M16 mag with a sliding lid and tool compartment, was new for $74
Ricochet A5 hopper (black) was $9.95
The BSA red dot (not shown) was $50 when new. Been used some years, but still in perfect shape.
So in essence, selling the complete A5 for even $350 is a negative gain for me, it don't even cover the cost of the parts added. So if anyone tried to build this from scratch, it would cost you over $400 in parts, and another $249 for the A5 with response trigger, grand total of about $670+. Not to mention I will toss in a hard to find used JT Flex 7 in BROWN, with both a clear thermal lens, and a mirror thermal lens (both have some scratches on the inside - sides from my glasses though). This is a killer deal for the right person.
All in excellent condition. Looking for $350 or best offer. PM me if need be. I am in the Irving, Texas area if anyone is local and wants to try it out.

Guess I got spoiled by going back to a Cocker again. Now the SP8 seems huge to me. So, not only selling my A5, but now the SP8 as well.
* SP8 in Jungle Green (also have main body halves in desert sand with an extra feed neck)
* SP ION green grip
* CP med size reg
* CP ION trigger (black)
* Full Epiphany kit installed (and completely went over by SP themselves - also all inserts for air chamber and new EP rated Blackheart board)
* Rear collapsable stock (Jungle Green)
* Suppressor Shroud (with 19" barrel - Jungle Green)
* SP 20" Tactical barrel
* SP Freak rear (NO INSERTS)
* SP Tactical front for FREAK (the longer one to use with Suppressor shroud)
* extra weaver rails on both shrouds
* OD Green OpsGear vertical front grip (with the finger grooves and hollow to hold batteries, and side slide inserts for sight switches)
* Hammerhead special fin for the SP8 AND Battle Styxx barrel included - its the one with the screw off tip that you can use their fake silencer
* BOTH ACOG (red + for sight) and "Delta" style cantilever mount red dot scope included in price
* Original box, spare parts, and original barrels, reg, feed elbow, internals (replaced by EP kit)
Pretty much over $800+ put into it, will take $550 OBO
If in the Dallas, Texas area, will meet so you can see/try it before you buy. Would prefer someone local so it could be done face to face
