  1. Upgrading my BT-4 Assault.

    19 February 2011 - 05:13 PM

    I am kinda wanting to up my BT-4 Assault and figured I'd ask for input from this forum (Special ops paintball)as it's more woodsball/milsim oriented than some of the others.

    Anyways, I have a BT-4 Assault that I use from time to time which I think I'll start using a little more this year if I upgrade it some. I currently have the BT Expansion chamber mag, a modified original A5 EGrip, and a bT bipod for it. I have also polished the internals. I'm looking at getting the TechT bolt and an Apex 2 barrel for this marker. I'm just not entirely sure I should though. At the moment I don't have a single aftermarket barrel for it, I had a 14" J&J Ceramic, but it seems to have sprouted legs and walked away. From what I have heard lately the new Apex 2 is a little more accurate than the original and IMO it looks BAD A$$. Now if I get one I know I'll have to get the 18" if I want to use the fore grip and front AR sight on the new barrel. This will reduce the already poor efficiency, but I don't shoot too much paint and I have extra tanks if I really need more air. Many of the guys I play with/against have flatline barrels and one has an original Apex. I have been at disadvantage in the woods against them for some time since I don't own either, but I've managed to hold my own on most days. I just think that the new Apex 2 would help me level the playing field against them. I don't care one bit about the trick shots, just the longer and flatter trajectory. The bolt I thought might not be such a bad idea for when I do shoot full auto. I have had the marker vibrate bad enough that my spread easily triples in area when shooting 10+BPS full-auto. If anyone knows of something else that may be a better idea to get or if one of the items I'm looking at is a bad choice let me know. Thanks.
  2. Desperately need computer help!

    31 December 2009 - 05:06 PM

    Alright, here the scoop, my moms computer got a nasty virus and she had no option, but to wipe the HD. She couldn't back up any files or print any info as the computer wouldn't even boot up into XP. I remember a couple years back people on here talking about a program that could find the ghost files left on the computer, which I'm hoping her files have become. The problem is I can't seem to find the thread that talked about it or if I'm even remembering correctly.

    FYI, the files she needs most are word files that have all her info on job applications, which she needs for her unemployment.

    As some of you may recall, I started a project nearly a year ago to modify a Brass Eagle Tiger Shark into a bolt-action. Well, I’ve gotten very close to finishing it the way I want it, but since I lost my job back in January and haven’t found a new one, I haven't got the extra cash to spend on the remaining parts. So, this as far as the build is most likely going to go, at least for now.

    I started off with a Brass Eagle Tiger shark I bought back in 98'. This isn't the actual marker I used, but I forgot to take a picture before starting the modification process.

    I started by cutting down the feedneck tube.

    Then I decided to relocate the feedneck’s position. I cut out the section with the feedneck…

    Posted Image

    …then JB welded it in a vertical position since I planned to have it be a tube feed.

    Posted Image

    I also decided to add a rail to the marker for mounting a bipod.

    Posted Image

    I also modified a 98C to Spyder barrel adapter to fit into the maker's body, but I haven't any photos of the process. What I wanted to do was grind off most of the 98C threads and then bore out the marker’s plastic body and JB Weld it in place. However, the guy that was helping me use the lathe decided to press the barrel adapter into the body of the marker while I was in the restroom since it made more sense to him. However, I don’t believe it went in completely straight nor did it go in as far as it should have. Also, I wanted to have it in a certain position so that the barrel would be a certain way when screwed on. Sadly, there was nothing I could do once the adapter was in place. I had to fill the 3/8” gap between the adapter and where it was supposed to seat with PC*7.

    I got a magazine from my father, hell if I know what it went to since he said he found it on the side of the road, and cut it to fit on the grip frame of the marker and painted it.

    After attaching it to the marker I ended up with this.

    After looking at it I figured it needed a hand guard and decided to see how a piece of PVC looked.

    I liked it.

    I made a feed tube out of 3/4" copper tubing, a spring, a 12-gram, a screw, a washer and bolt. This is the only one I have currently made and it holds 16 paintballs. As soon as I use some 12-grams I’ll be able to make more.

    I also milled out the 90* to accept the feed tube’s locking system

    I adding PC*7 to the body and molded a mag well to get the look I was going for.

    After cutting a new piece of PVC for the hand guard and dremeling the PVC to fit against the body of the marker a little better and painting the project I ended up with the following.

    I bought a phantom spring kit and will be testing the marker with them this weekend.

    *Edit*
    For some reason there are no images and there should be. I used the Image code so I'm not sure why there is even a link.
  5. Dual guage block for a ProMaster.

    10 March 2009 - 04:58 PM

    I currently own the standard ProMaster and I'd like to get a dual gauge block like on the Lasoya. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
