14 December 2009 - 08:58 PMI'm looking to put a solid stock on my Project Salvo. http://www.tippmannparts.com/Tippmann-Spec...t-98-p/7233.htm this is the first one that caught my eye. I've read that MOST stocks from the model 98 will work with the Salvo/Alpha black but I wanted to be sure.
When I had my Salvo apart the only difference between the end caps for the two guns I noticed was that the Salvo has a self centering/ aligning groove where the 98c doesnt. Any experience here?
Also has anyone had any experience with this stock? I had a Tippmann SAW stock on my old 98 custom and the thing snapped off like a twig while I was playing when I accidentally tripped and fell on my gun. My salvo stock doesnt feel flimsy like that and i dont wanna change it out for something thats going to be weaker.
13 December 2009 - 08:48 PMWell I had been looking for pictures and found plenty with OD clips, stocks, scopes, and rails but none the reverse with an OD body and black rest. I finally did it today and also ventured into my first attempt at baking paint. I have to say the receiver body squeezed just perfect into my old toaster oven. I used regular krylon OD green camo paint. I scuffed the stock powder coat that the Tippmanns come with with a scotch bright pad and gave it a very light dusting of green. I then toasted it at about 200* with an old dish rag buffering the bottom of the body from the grate. The first time I let it go for about 15mins on each side.
After the first coat I was astonished at how fast the paint HARDENED. Yes not dried, the paint had hardened. As in the same hardened that can take weeks or months if not properly prepped and executed. So for the second coat I went a little bit heavier and got a good coat on it. I then used my heat gun to dry the paint while it was still hanging. From there it went in the toaster oven, same temperature but for about 1:30 - 2:00 hours each side. It came out nice and hardened again and I allowed it to cool slowly for about an hour.
I reassembled the gun, repositioned the accessories, and looked in awe at the thing. Baking the paint and having patience made it look factory. As far as durability goes only time will tell. If I have issues with it like I did with my old 98 then it will get soda blasted and dura baked. Visually though I'm super happy.

12 August 2009 - 04:46 PMDoes anyone know of an inline volumizer thats made? I'm looking for something about 1-1/2 to 2in long that has npt fittings on either end and acts as a volumizer inline between a tippmann power tube and the tank hookup.
Trying to adapt LPA kit for a Salvo if your wondering.
11 August 2009 - 09:53 PMOther than Skirmish who offers scenario games in the NY/NJ/PA/CT area?
I'd really like to get into some actual Counter Terrorist - Terrorist games / Swat games and such. I go to Topgun in Jackson NJ for all their "scenario" games and they are alot of fun but its really just a big 100v100 clash of paint spam and not much tactics sorta thing.
11 August 2008 - 10:25 AMAnyone else been scammed by this guy? I ordered a podpack in january and it never came. I sent in multiple emails about missing items and no response. Now even when I try to send in a new email I just get errors. He hasnt logged into his myspace since right before the time I placed the order and I cant get any other informations on him other than hes located out of Dayton Ohio.
STAY AWAY GUYS!
