15 May 2008 - 12:36 PMUnless you're absolutely sure you know what you're doing with macroline, keep out of the plumbing store and buy it online from a reputably site. There are lots of ratings for macroline, and the last thing you want is to have your macroline keep bursting on you, possibly injuring yourself and other players.
It's not even expensive to order online, either.
12 May 2008 - 04:10 PMSince you use CO2, it's pretty much THE reason for using a stabilizer. It pretty much does what it says, stabilizes your PSI. With CO2, you get spikes in pressure depending on temperature, how fast you're shooting, whether any liquid CO2 gets sloshed, things of that nature. The stabilizer helps to negate these spikes and keep your shots (and therefore velocity) much more consistent. Consistent shots equals greater accuracy.
12 May 2008 - 02:13 PMHonestly, I'd probably go out and play with it before modifying it much. It'll let you know what you want the marker to feel like. If it still has the stock barrel, I'd replace that next. The stab is a good idea as well, especially with CO2. If you're running with a gravity hopper right now, you might consider getting a new one to keep up with the RT.
As was said, the M16 look will take some work to get going. There are shrouds and such, but it will take some modification to get it looking good. Make sure that the marker works the way you want it to before you start modifying it's appearance, though.
12 May 2008 - 07:40 AMColdest was when I was in New England, did some paintball in the winter. Snow on the ground. It was fun.
Hottest is around here in the summer, 110+. Dehydration and heat stroke is a real threat. Always keep an eye out for it!
09 May 2008 - 03:01 PMYou should probably do some more research. Like, yanno, buying one of the Nerf guns. and holding it. Or at least researching modifications for it. It's not THAT big.
That is a point though, about it cracking when a paintball hits it. But perhaps he wants an innovative looking marker, without having to play hard with it? Hardly see people ragging on the skele-cocker or skele-mag. Because they look good. If he does this well and it looks good, it's the same thing with a different style.
