Mod85 caliber change

Something I've been working on. Changing a Mod 85 to a .43 cal. I will have to make delrin shells also.
Does anyone think there would be enough interest in a production run? It wouldn't be cheap. I'll wag it at $200, barrel and 30 shells. You would probably need the old shell internals unless I can come up with something different.

you sure that's ok?
I remember reading somewhere that Mod 85s were not considered firearms because of the plastic barrel

just a thought

I know most fields wouldn't allow them anyway, and you'd mostly use these playing outlaw, but you know

The barrel will be made out of plastic. It would allow those that have them to shoot them for fun.

Any idea on what the .43 would chrono at? I know the old .375caliber was way to fast-around 400fps.

No I don't. The object is to just be able to shoot the gun not really a play paintball gun.

.43 runs best @ 400+ but if you are planning on making a true .43 call barrel then the that may come down, I would buy one, pm re and lets see what we could work out as this would be awsome (we only really use .43 in our club)

COOL. You guys rock! Nelson paint is very hard, while I've heard Kingman paint blends pretty easily, so you may have to go with that.

Well I'd say yes but SOMEONE has my old Mod85

Actually..I'm not sure how well it'll do at that price. 30 shells, even if they are made 'non-breaky' unlike the old ones, pretty easy to lose them when they get ejected all over the place. Also, have you come up with a way to reload the primers in the new shells w/o the reloading kit? There aren't a whole lot of those floating around

when they outlaw Mod85's only the outlaws will have mod85's
