There was a LOT of clean up involved. Luckily the actual mechanics of the marker seem to be pretty darn bulletproof. It fires just fine and always did, so this was a pile of cosmetic work.

The surface was heavily scratched and pitted on the whole marker, so there was power tool work that led to hand work that led to more hand work etc.. I finished the marker with Duracoat in kelly green and black. (I wanted a more emerald green, but kelly green is what came and I didn't have the time for another order.

The wood inserts are razor thin pieces of something I had laying around with a nice grain. They had to be custom fitted to each area of the gun as the sand casting leaves a lot to be desired for consistency.

This gun has all the original parts, even the original o-ring that seals the tube to the frame. It's a shockingly simple and robust design.

For a second, I thought it got NASTIED. Does the twelvee get held in in a traditional stock twist?
Nice job on the stock and side tap spring feed.

This was a nice eBay snag; $85 shipped for two valveless and thouroughly beaten upon PTP Micromags, valveless Classic Mag, a BooYaa and a bunch of extra PTP vertical adapters and old duckbills. Too bad the guy listed it so poorly:p

Anyway, the first job was to get the spraypaint off the body. It was easy, because the previous owner apparently started the job for me so that he could get a "fade" look... looks like hell, right? Anyway a few hours with a toothbrush and some nailpolish remover took care of it. I polished it down to get rid of all the nasty oxidation, then powdercoated it black. I'm not 100% happy with the final color, though, as I was trying to match my other "Sating Black" PTP MicroMags, and this one came out a bit gray. Then I threw on an old AA barrel, and bought a used RT Pro valve. The valve needed a full rebuild, but that was relatively easy with an AGD kit. Finally, I had the broken BooYaa frame, that with $15 worth of RadioShack parts became a 15bps ball slingin' machine :) I then added an old vertical adapter, and stripped an old "Dead-On" cocker reg to make it a gasthru.

I can tell it isn't the prettiest thing that will be listed, or the most massively re-done, but I think I've done a pretty damn good job and I'm glad that people will get the chance to see it in all its glory :)

I don't think I can wait 'til next year for the other spraypainted Micro :p:

thankee!, never patched a sidetap before, they drilled out most of the serial number when they put it in...and it is a traditional stock twist, didnt seem right to put a fasstchanger on just yet...insta-pierce works well, and the 'one-up' mod makes that 15th ball jump right into the barrel:Dput another 30 rds through it today

Stunningly good work all around gents! We'll wait another day or two for stragglers to post and then we'll have the voting.
