Haha I would've killed for that machine back when I had a tippmann a5 and was all into milsim shrouds. Looks like it's gonna be sweet.

The machines are awesome, first is the CNC punch/laser. You lay the sheet out, then the punch comes in and punches all the holes, then the laser cuts the lines. Then you go off to the CNC brake that is +/- .005" in tolerance. Just hope I drew them up right :huh:

Does anyone know what bolt is suppose to be in this Tactical? Orracle bolt? Evo bolt? Delrin? Totally confused now.

Any of these? I thought it was the one with yellow O-rings but then how does the bolt get ano'd on the back portion? So then I thought it was like the black magic bolt, center one. I dunno.

Unless I'm mistaken, all VF tactical colorways had a black delrin bolt, like either of the first two. Obviously delrin will not take anno, so if you want to match it you will have to use one of the metal bolts.

Cocker bolts came in 3 lengths, evo/pblock, 2k, and pre2k; the only difference is the distance from back block hole to tip. you are using a 2k back block and a full bodied cocker, so you will need a 2k bolt.. those all appear to be 2k, so you should be good to go.

Cut and bent ALL the guards wrong! Damn it, round two to come:

At least the spacers are still good:
