Topics I've Started
25 December 2008 - 03:33 PMI don't know how many of you are familiar with the marker. It is definitely one of the lesser known markers out there these days. It definitely occupies a small niche in the market, but after about as much research on the marker as I could get I think I found something that suits my needs perfectly.
It works excellently on CO2, has a single trigger, has a right feed (and the option for an offset vertical feed), is self regulating, requires close to no maintenance (doesn't even need disassembly since its operation is air tight), and its pretty unqiue. Also due to its bolt-less design it is technically impossible to for it to break paint in the marker.
It is entirely mechanical, weighs in at 2.3 pounds including the forgrip and a barrel, and is extremely compact. Each one is hand made by ICE themselves so you can order it pretty much however you want to, you get to deal with Jim himself. It isn't the fastest marker on the market capping around 9bps but that's pretty fast for my standards. It feels solid as a rock, maybe moreso than my Automag.
I regret that I do not have a barrel, air tank, or paint, but I should get some more pics and a video up within a week. I probably should have wiped it down before taking the photos, but I am throughly satisfied with the marker. Without further delay:
It came in a nice box with foam padding, a manual, a spare parts kit, and a barrel plug which happens to fit inside the foregrip (nifty). I can tell it was a very well engineered marker as there is no part of it left unused. The manual is also very thorough explaining exactly how it works. They mentioned some available accessories such as a sight rail which I might look into.
I'm still trying to decide which barre to get for it. Of all my barrels none are Autococker threaded. I might just go with a CP barrel, but Lapco and Palmer's are always contenders. Palmer's would be great, but I don't know if I would like to put a heavy barrel on such a light marker. Likewise, I think I want to try something a bit quieter than a Lapco barrel to compliment how quiet of a marker it already is.
10 June 2008 - 08:39 PMThis comic has been floating around in a few threads - and by multiple posters. I'm sure many of you, especially those of you who have been around for awhile have seen it. There's always posts about people trying to get the most fancy gear or trying to get the nicest setups. But how much does it really matter?
So I'm curious, where would you all rank yourself on here? How many of you don't even understand the message of this comic?
The image comes from a 1988 Action Pursuit Games magazine. I believe it was their 10th magazine.
Goggles aside - which nobody should be using lab goggles I like to think of myself as an expert. I don't play with a PGP and tubes in my pocket all the time - but I do occasionally play stock class with nothing but tubes in my pocket. I do however keep everything simple everything I play. I never go though more than 500 rounds a day and a 9oz serves me a full day. All day air prices are of no value to me. When I'm not playing pump I either run my old Pro Carbine on liquid for fun or use my old Automag still setup in it's bone stock back bottle setup. I don't think I've ever shot faster than 6bps. I've been playing for awhile now and still have never owned more than a gravity hopper and have never worn a harness. To many that still places me in a "noob" category but I certainly don't see that way. I enjoy using more primitive gear and I find it fun to be as successful and usually more so than everyone else.
07 March 2008 - 04:22 PMI've been browsing some patent pages and came across an interesting design by Tippmann. It looks like it was going to be something based off of their SMG60 yet it features a drum fed magazine. It looks rather ugly and impractical but interesting nevertheless. The Co2 tank looks pretty unique as well. Kind of reminds me of a Thompson SMG.
27 February 2008 - 11:13 PMI was looking at masks and noticed a "JT Reaper" listed. I've never noticed it before is it new?
I assumed at first it was one of their low end cheapies but noticed that it used a Spectra series lens and had some other unique features such as a "Quick Lock Lens System", and "Removable Gel Skirt"
It looks like the whole mask is pretty minimal and the entire thing is made out of soft "bouncy" materials. Personally I think it's kind of ugly and too minimal for my tastes. Has anyone else seen them or heard about them? Apprarently it's part of some "QLS" series.
27 January 2008 - 12:40 PMNo this isn't another question about Phantom stock barrels and if they are good or not. Hope this hasn't been asked before.
Hypothetically, would you buy CCI barrels if Mike made them in other threads? I really like my CCI barrel, and for the cost ($22) you can get a really nicely made barrel. They're air efficient, about as lightweight as carbon fiber, and actually pretty quiet. Doc's machine made a modification and used it on his Arrow Precision Sovereign. So how many of you would buy CCI barrels for your other guns?
