APEX on a...and a couple of questions

Has anyone tried putting one of these on a stock barrel from....






...a Stingray II.
So a Bottomline Commando Kit
Starfire Venturi Bolt
"Plastic" bead replacing original ball detent
Shimmed everything (barrel trigger donkey) to keep it from moving
polished and smoothed everything reachable/movable.

Anything else to "improve" the marker?
(yes I realize not "the best" 50rd hopper but I like the way it looks)

Now is there a way I can get some type of stock (L, T or wire similar to that on a skorpion) on this without modifying any of the marker itself other than putting a "buttstock" cap on the 9 or 20 oz tank? Gas thru stock with an ASA threaded end? would this be feasible and if so anyone know where I can pick one up?

Also expansion chamber ? yes definitely or really not needed due to the extra hose/bottomline kit? If I find and use the above mentioned stock how would I use or mount the expansion chamber without modifying the marker? Or in place of an expansion chamber would using HPA at 800 psi be a better recommendation?

Would the stock not attach to the same place as the bottom line kit?

Get a real EOTech holosight which costs more than the entire set up as it stands.

Did you need to modify the barrel at all to attach the APEX?

The bottomline kit actually fits into the hollow handle with a turn screw and plate to keep it locked in so no it wouldn't

I have had that Daisy Point Sight since1993 and the messed up thing is it has the original battery and still works I will stick with that for now

No but I did have to shave down the plastic of the apex which at an average of $15 bux shipped used is alot cheaper than trying to find a replacement barrel and I wanted to leave all addons just that and not modify the marker at all

i've seen stocks made (custom homebrew or possible a one of by an airsmith) that fit into grips similar to that style. try your hand at wood working, doesnt seem too difficult.

best bet if you go the stock route is to switch to remote line. which might act as an expansion chamber too.

I've seen tons of adjustable T-stocks with remote line output that just screw into ASA's look for universal T-stock online.

?/?

yes while technically the tank buttcap stock is usable they are a bit fugly
I was thinking of some type of covering for the tank in the meantime.

When the funds increase I will probably look at purchasing the suggested T -stock. I was looking at trying to make my own but the cost is actually above what it would cost to buy it.

Well yeah the tank is going to be the best stock on basically any gun, due to the nature of how we play paintball. Having a traditional stock off the back of the gun is not the best for shooting any gun, but for real guns its the best for controlling the recoil.
