Topics I've Started
16 March 2011 - 01:23 AMI scored a tm-15 from a pawn shop the other week for 115 bucks. I have been thinking of how I can mod it since.. I knew I'd go 2 directions with it.. Cut the shroud down 4 inches, to make a shorter marker.. Or utilize the baffles in the shroud, by dampening them :-) I decided to try baffling the shroud first, if I don't like it it's removable. There was another guy out there who used scotch bright pads for his method, but I thought the softer material would work better.. I haven't had a chance to test it, so give me time for real results.
the tm-15 comes "pre muffled" by having porting from the barrel inside of baffling in the marker. This makes it quiet, but more importantly, it is the perfect oppertunity for a tinkerer like me to mod their marker.
What I did.
Went to the local Wallmart, and bought a roll of non adhesive non slip matting (for drying dishes, or going in your cupboards). then I bought a 6 pack of self adhesive foam (used for crafts, I use the same stuff to pad my hopper, worked great)
Took the clamshells apart, cleaned everything with rubbing alcohol.
Made a basic stencil
Cut a piece of the self adhesive foam out.
Traced 2 layers of the non-slip matting for every piece of black foam (allows more air to be trapped in the non-slip matting)
for the difficult ones, I dry fit foam in one side, trimmed it until it fit, then flipped it upside down, and traced it to get a mirrored piece of it. That would work out perfectly for the other side.
I don't have a full tank, but I took a few shots with a mostly empty tank, and it sounds to be dampened quite well.. Expect updates..
How many of you want a tm-15 now?? lol
20 February 2011 - 10:23 AMHey SO.. I have had my a-5 for years now, and I have a SO Mp mag kit on it.. I can remember way back in the day when I was just a noob drooling over the internet ads, I saw a SO mag lust like mine sold housing a PPs Direct Stab.. I have an inline stab now, and I couldnt make it fit into my mag. I was looking at PPS direct stabs, and it looks like thats the one I need to house it in my mag.. I can't order the Direct Stab on a hunch, so I need to know if it will fit. Plus I would have to sell my inline stab to get the Direct one.
Any one with info please let me know.. Otherwise I'll keep my bottom line mounted inline stab.
21 September 2010 - 08:46 PMHey SO team,
I just got my So forearm guard in the mail, and I immediately tried to use it. It fit kind of lose on my arm empty, but then I added 6 10rd tubes (empty), and 6 12 grams to the harness, and the guard was sagging a ways from my arm. I think it needs some type of non bungie/ adjustable strap to ensure a good fit. I am going to have to tape mine to m arm or something to make it usable.
10 September 2010 - 06:46 PMHey SO team, I just got a p68SC, and I want to use it for stock class, but also as a secondary for big games. I was wondering if you felt the Havoc launcher holster would work well with this marker, or if I'd be better off trying to make my own.
Thanks for any reply at all.
09 February 2009 - 11:38 PMhave been lusting for a TechT Fang trigger lately, with my current financial status that was not an option. I thought of an idea and finnally worked up the gumption to try it. My idea was to sand down my GTA double trigger until it was flat. I started this mod with high hopes, but soon enough realized that simply sanding will not work due to lack of material. I ran to my garage in search of some JB Weld, with no luck... Then I saw it.. the tube of Mighty Putty.. I doubted it would work but I figured I already had a junk trigger.
I mixed the mighty putty up and packed it around the trigger, not covering where the r/t strikes the back, or any of the internals. I waited a mere 45 minutes, and started sanding away at the putty. I used a Dremel to sand the putty down to a better shape. I started with the 1/2" sanding band, 60 grit, and got the trigger within general dimensions of where I wanted it. I then switched to the 240grit sanding disk to take the main scratches out, and fine tune the egneral shape. Lastly I used a polish wheel just to heat the top coat of the puddy some. Followed that with a few coats of the rattle can stuff, and you have a poor mans Fang trigger. I know its not nearly as cool, but I LOVE the new feel it has..
What do you guys think?
