It does. I've done it several times now. Interestingly enough, I've had no jams firing in full auto.

can you still use regular paintball after the mod with no problem on both semi and full auto?

Yes, it is the biggest benefit of modding an ATS is you get that functionality. In my last scenario game, I was able to switch from FS to paintballs and back to FS (through a mag change) and still take advantage of the full auto feature on the ATS.

The biggest challenge with this project is getting the right ID barrel, an old style Unisizer, and the bolt/PVC fitting. Everything else can be acquired or made easily without specialized tools or skills.

I take it you used the biggest sizer from the old set.

FSR's are .684. Depending what school of thought you follow, any sizer around that will work.

Hey JJ,

I'm probably one of many that are buying extra parts to build your FS ready model.

Can you feed the FS rounds in from the from the top of an AT mag using the chain in reverse with only 3 rounds at a time?

Does the chain affect feeding the FS rounds into the breach?

Have you tried the Lapco 0.682 barrel with your FS AT?

Any data comparing your marker's grouping to a Tiberius 9.1 yet?

Thanks for the inspiration...

Can you feed the FS rounds in from the from the top of an AT mag using the chain in reverse with only 3 rounds at a time? No, the chain will get caught in the fins and there is a screw that gets in the way.

Does the chain affect feeding the FS rounds into the breach? Yes. There is a way to keep the chain in the magazine but it requires extensive modification and fabrication. Shadowp68 came up with an idea that could make keeping the chain in the magazine but I haven't had the time to try it out.

Have you tried the Lapco 0.682 barrel with your FS AT? Yes... I tried it. Unfortunately, it does not work. It got stuck in there every single time, even at maximum velocity. FS rounds are .684 and will not fit. The projectile is just too big. Your best bet is to find a a freak ATS barrel and use .686 sizer or find an ATS Javelin barrel.

Any data comparing your marker's grouping to a Tiberius 9.1 yet? My buddy who had a Tiberius 9.1 got deployed so I won't be able to test it until he gets back from his tour of duty.

I may have misread your comment...

No I didn't use the sizers from the old set. I am actually using a unisizer. But get this... this unisizer I'm using appears to be different. First, it's a really old unisizer and the bore (or the ridges) appears to be bigger a ID. It took a lot less force to push a paintball through it than my newer ones. The urethane glands also is of a darker blue color than the newer ones. So I'm not sure if it was a manufacturing abnormality or just worn out due to age but I do get rollouts when using normal paintball with this specific unisizer vs a new unisizer.

Here was my inquiry:
Unisizers changes

Anyway, any unisizer will work for a project like this but if you have an older unisizer, I wouldn't hesitate to try that one out first.

That is some great snipping. In fact I have not seen anything that has even come close to what you have achieved!
