Finally got all my photo's in order now!
The first set will be the pile of poo I started with.

I started with a tool box full of parts from all sorts of paintball items, about 10 years worth of collecting. After digging threw the pile o' poo I decided that I would attempt to put a broken TPX pistol into a 22 caliber stock and turn it into a frist strike/paintball sniper rifle.

The TPX was left at our shop for about a year because the owner did not want to pay for the new shells that he broke. He pulled the nut threw the top because he tightened it up way too much. My fix for that was to make a bushing that would hole it together and also would make it so the TPX could not be pulled threw the stock. I found a old A5 16inch rifled barrel with a bent muzzle on it. I cut the muzzle off and trimmed the back of the barrel down so it would fit in the TPX shroud. I then found some delrin hanging around the shop and made a loudner mostly to cover up the raw end of the barrel. I then decided that it should shoot first strike rounds. Got the mill/dremel out and cut a nice little "D" shape in the breech. I used a exacto knife and cut a "D" shape in the mags as well. I wanted to use the a 12 gram to power it, but could not use the front chamber because it was blocked off from the stock. Well that would mean I would have to use the remote part to power it, so I did.

To be able to use a remote adapter you need to have a 12 gram in the front of the TPX. If I wanted to run a 12 gram from the remote line setup, that would defeat the purpose. It would equalize both 12 grams and I would get about 5 shots. It took a little to figure out how to fix that. What I did was take the hollow brass tube out and replace it with a solid piece so NO air would go to the from 12 gram. Now that I got that finished. I wanted to put some sort of mag well and mag on it. I looked all over for one but could not find one. So off to the hobby shop I went. I bought some sheet plastic and custom made a mag well and mag, then sprayed it flat black. It took me about 2 hours to get it right. I figured a good sniper rifle needs a scope. On a TPX there is nothing to attach any sort of scope on it. I drilled and taped the top of the shroud to fit mini weaver rail on it. The stock was next on the agenda.

Next up was the stock. This took me about 18 hours and 2 rotary (dremel) tools later. First I had to cut the bulk of the inside of the stock out. That took for ever. After hacking out the center, it was time to see if it would come close to fitting the TPX in. I sanded the entire stock down and painted it a semi gloss black.

The final product turned out great!
The last picture shows the paintball grouping of 7 shots from about 65 feet away. 6 out of 7 balls are with in 5 inches of each other. There was a big dumping of snow last week so the local field was closed down so I could not get any video. So I had to shoot it indoors at the back shop door.

Thankx for looking, I had a blast building this pile of poo.

Total amount of dollars spent:

Plastic $12.00
Glue $4.00
Aluminum rod $5.00
Nut and bolt $.50
Everything else was found in the shop.

Total was: $21.50

Nice work, a lot cleaner than most of the other builds. I can really appreciate a finely polished poo! Vote +1
