  2. Coincidence?

    22 April 2009 - 09:52 PM

    In life experiences, the jobs that I've held, & in the news that I've followed, I've come to determine that coincidences aren't nearly as common as some people chalk them up to be.

  3. Dogleg installs easy! Forestock installation? Not so much.

    20 January 2009 - 08:26 PM

    This A2 foregrip is the bloody devil. Srsly.

    Anyhow, my A5 I've been beating up for the last two days, sans the foregrip:

    Now, I can get the foregrip/forestock on to where it looks somewhat decent, & would be playable, albeit annoyingly. Front looks good, but is slightly uneven, although you may not be able to tell so from the photo:

    Side even looks alright @ first glance:

    However, it's evident from the top that the forestock is hardly "tight":

    ...as well as the view looking toward the barrel:

    I have put the airline in every conceivable position possible...even scratching a 1"x1/2" chunk of paint off in the process, & making a large slice in the new foregrip from a flat-head that slipped while I was using it to keep the airline down. None of this really bothers me, but what does is that I want to get this to work, & preferably w/out busting out a dremel which will likely end w/ it still not connecting right, as well as negate any chance on returning/replacing the part.

    I'm convinced this has something to do w/ the fact that I've been given some thick butt steel braided airline, as literally every pic I can find of an installed dogleg utilizes an apparently smooth, black macroline. Also, the lip on the foregrip that I presume would go on top of said line, isn't much of a lip @ all...and contrary to what the directions state, there has been no "snapping" to indicate such.

    I'd also like to point out that I've taken this to three pro-shops, one of which is speedball oriented only, & apparantly never comes across Tippmanns, & the other two being totally unfamiliar w/ any mods pertaining to the Dogleg or Commando stock. Odd.

    Anyhow, any advice, suggestions, direction-pointing, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Furthermore, I'm not going to get rid of the dogleg, nor am I not going to use the air-through...but if there happens to be some other foregrip/forestock out there that you know of (& functions in the same manner, i.e. w/ the dogleg), please let me know.

    Many thanks in advance.

  4. Does a dual-trigger for the A5 E-Grip H.E. exist?

    18 January 2009 - 09:14 PM

    I understand that many of the dual-triggers for the non-magnetized A5 E-Grips (i.e. 1st gen, & WAS) do not fit the E-Grip H.E., and I further understand that the X7s utilize the E-Grip H.E.

    So is it fair to say that an X7 dual-trigger (such as THIS) will work in a E-Grip H.E. on an A5?

    Speculation is grrrrreat, but I'd be especially enthused to hear from somebody whom already has this particular set-up.

    Please & thank-you!
  5. Looking for woodsball group in Flint/Mid-Michigan Area

    12 January 2009 - 08:29 AM

    I recently picked up a new marker after a 15 year hiatus from paintballing, & am looking for a woodsball group (preferably within/around the greater Flint-area) to casually play w/, & perhaps attend area events. If you're interested in gaining another player for your games, or are able to point me in the right direction, please feel free to email me @ bicnowler@yahoo.com. Thanks!
