Topics I've Started
08 October 2009 - 12:51 PMI've got a Dust Olive Invert Mini for sale. It's only seen the field twice. I bought it, then discovered pump play. The grips have been replaced with SPD custom grips (see the picture). The stock barrel has been bored out (by O'Dell's Paintball) to accept the SP Freak Inserts. I'll include the kit. I also have a Velocity Jr hopper and a Pure air 68ci HPA tank.
Looking to move it, like everyone else, I need the cash. Please no trades.
$400 or best offer
28 July 2009 - 07:35 PMI'm going to float this out there to see what kind of interest I can generate.
What I have for sale only (unless you have a green/brown acid wash VSC Phantom with matching stock) is my A5. This was my first marker when I got back into paintball a couple of years ago. It served me well. Once, when I was flush with cash, I sent it to BigBone for a custom paintjob. The duracoat is a four color (Dark Flat Earth, ACU Tan, ACU Green, ACU Dark Gray) custom pattern. It was created after much debate between Bone and I (and my wife). The barrel that was painted in the same pattern is an older Armson 13" rifled. This barrel was imported from South Africa back when the company was located there. I know there is a lot of debate about rifled barrels. People either love them or hate them. I loved mine. I rarely had a break in the barrel. I loved it. I wish I could find one for my Phantom! The M4 stock has never even seen the field. I had it painted brand new and realized that it didn't fit me. The marker does prefer Tippmann parts. I've tried "upgrading" to TechT and other aftermarket parts, but it just runs better with factory parts.
I'm selling this for reasons not related to the marker. I'm a Dad with two small kids so I don't have a lot of time to play. Also, I had surgery about two years ago on the nerve in my arm and frankly, carrying it around for a full day of play just wears the nerve out. (That's why I play almost stock class anymore.)
I'm going to say $250. The price is negotiable.
Thanks for looking.
27 September 2008 - 06:28 PMHere is a Nelspot that I had acquired several months ago. I didn't have any real designs on it, I was just looking for a piece of paintball history.
It was in rough shape, and frankly, it didn't see a lot of action (outside of a couple of trips to the chrono area).
Meanwhile, my wife and I were talking about having BigBone paint a CCI Phantom for us in a Hawaiian theme'd pattern (we just moved away from the islands). After talking to BigBone and a looking at budgets, we decided to put the project on hold. Then it hit us (her actually ), why not do the Nelspot.
So after a couple of email conversations with Bone (who is wonderful to work with), off my Nelspot went. That was last week. Here is what was in my email this morning.
It's on it's way to me on Monday! YAY!! Shortly after that, it's on its way to one of the members here (gee, I wonder who? ) for some work on the internals. Then it might just become my primary marker. I'm also waiting on some Hawaiian koa wood grips that a friend is making for me. (If any of my island brothers are on here, pm me I need some help.)
02 July 2008 - 08:07 PMI'm looking for a VSC Phantom. The external condition is not important (I'm not too concerned with scratches) b/c it's for a special paintjob. I have to trade some equipment that just isn't getting used. I've got:
A5 - stock, with new ratchet and extra cyclone feed
NXE scenario vest (the fullsized one), never seen the field
32* remote, never seen the field
20oz CO2 tank.
I can get you pictures after I get back from traveling on the 14th.
11 June 2008 - 09:25 PMWe (Doubleshot and I) have been working on building open class phantoms. We already have vsc. We ordered a center feed breech from CCI and discovered that the feedneck was extremely tall. We were going to cut it using a pipecutter, but discovered this online. It's an adapter that attaches to a stock-class breech and is threaded for ION/IMPULSE feednecks. We figured we'd try it. It came today. After a quick trip to the local pro-shop to get the feedneck (it's a New Designz, I think, she bought it ) here are the results.
This is the center feed breech with the required feedneck and a Supershot hopper.
Here is the stock class breech with the PMP adapter piece and ION feedneck with the same hopper.
Sideviews of the same configurations above:
Here are first person views of the PMP adapter with a Winchester and a Brass Eagle hopper.
We haven't measured to see the exact height difference, but it's obvious enough for me to ask:
Anyone want to buy a centerfeed breech?
I realize that the PMP adapter plus the feedneck is more than a center feed breech. Cost was not the issue. We were going for functionality. It well succeeds.
