Good luck on that project. I actually did spend a lot on this project. I can roughly do the math now.

2 rapid fires $40
2 spacer plates $22
1 Pure energy paintball tank $175
1 Custom products Long Reg $98
Quick disconnect with on/off $40
Petg $10 or so
3 cans of paint $18
Custom tubing $20
nic nacs and parts $20

$443 Over the course of like 4 months or so.
I knew it was a big project and I knew what I was getting into.

Ehh, dude you really got ripped off on the tank and regulator. The tanks MSRP is $109.95 and the regulators is $84.99. You could have easily picked up that tank for ~60 and that regulator ~50 on eBay. You could even go for a cheaper regulator for this application (~$10 on eBay). Excellent work though. Final product looks great.

I broke my clippers trying to cut the spring. So I couldn't break the spring with my bare hands so I used a hammer to pound the clipper handle and one of the clippers broke off.

Yeah, but with that type of equipment, shipping would be a bitch if you had warranty issues. This way he pays more, but saves money not having to spend over $40 for shipping if something goes wrong. And that's if the ebay stuff even has a warranty.

I dont mind spending a bit more if it will save me a headache later.
Dont forget these prices are a bit higher because it is in Canadian.

Ah, didn't think about it being in Canadian. Good work nonetheless.

Really nice work, though it's quite a good amount of money out of your wallet. I'm going to love seeing that thing at Hell. I'm pretty sure it's not going to be your primary, for obvious reasons of course.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good nerf gun is like a good woman. It shouldn't require extra lubrication.

I have a question and I hope it wasnt answered else where I looked but didn't see anything, CS said he had problems getting constant air from the HPA tanks which is why he used his external PVC tank what is diffrent about this rig that allows you to draw constant air? Is it something in the regulator assembly?

No. Not enough power and you would have to pump it up an insane amount of times.

I generally PM people about stuff like that when the thread is a couple years old, but whatever, I'm not you.

Oh and Mcmaster part#: 9087K12
Copy and paste that number into the search box on this page.

See kids, I didn't have to be mean.

Edit: Here is the amazon link. Email this member named "Captain Slug" and ask him which site is better.

Damn it Foamfoot. Why is it that you kill every good topic with a retarded response a few days late.
