Hello, new to forum, just a quick question!

im new here, but not new the sport. i have a few guns, (icon x, wichester, and the all mighty stingray...) my question or i should say questions are this. is there or does anyone know of any types of mods i can do to either my winchester gun or my stingrayII to improve there performance. i have a longer ported barrel on my srII but thats it, acutally i do enjoy using that gun the most. makes a good sniper rifle, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thank you..

Buy a regulator.

A paintball gun is accurate because it is consistent. If your gun is consistent, you can put the paint in the same place time and time again. One of the best add-ons that you can use to increase your level of consistency and by extension your accuracy is by adding on a regulator. The regulator works to put the exact same level of pressure into the system each time. If your gun is cycling with the exact same pressure each time, it helps to cut down on a lot of little issues that are magnified by fluxuating pressure.

Or if the setup you're using relies on high pressure then switch to a small HPA bottle.

Be warned that there's some older guns that rely on the mass density of the CO2 to properley get the ball up to speed.

In all honesty, don't put that much money into a marker like that. Save up your money and buy a quality marker that can use for a long time.

I dissagree, it's better to learn about modding on a cheaper gun, then to end up experimenting on an expensive one. I still have nightmares about the kid who decided to remove the "paint" from his Dynasty Shocker...with a bench grinder.

Anywho, don't know much about the winchester, but I know a ton about the Stingray. Here's a few I've modded (some pictures quite a bit old)...




A good trigger job really helps a lot, and combined with a double trigger mod you can actually get a decent rate of fire going.

For the trigger job (which costs all of maybe a buck or two to do if you have the right tools laying around), follow the instuctions here...
Quake's Ultimate Trigger Job

As for the double trigger, I've cobbled them together from random stuff, but the latest use double trigger shoes for a Model98. They haven't made them in a while, so you'll have to watch ebay.

awsome, nice guns..do you happen to have any pics of the progress you have done during your mods. if not thats cool anyway.. nice work. i think im gonna do some mods to my gun this weekend, the trigger mod looks good as well, how well do it perform? how about a mod for the rear cocking i've seen, how do you do that?
thanks for the help everyone.

Run that stingray on a siphon. Its one of the few cheap guns that were designed to handle it.

I had one for around 10 years, and it was a very reliable backup. Always worked. Never complained, though the trigger on those guns were about as sloppy as possible. Probobly done on purpose to prevent them from being fired by accident. You can correct that with careful placement of spacers, and such.

Vert mods are also pretty easy. They can be done by salavaging the rear donkey, and hooking to the forward trigger guard like this:
