It's Alive!

Nooooooo!!!!!

*Cue Darth Vader's Theme*

*Cross fade Agent Smith's maniacal laughter from the climactic fight scene in the last Matrix movie*
Call it PTX Evolutions if you Dare. . .

But first, the exposition:
I purchased my first (of three) PTX in Montreal from PBL action sports. It was my first STBB and it gave me fits trying to keep the leaks plugged and the velocity playable. I found the SASE (nightmare54boardforumthingy), I tinkered, I cursed. I bought another and tinkered and cursed some more. I hacked on my firstborn and lo. . .I plugged the leaks. And running liquid CO2 from a vertical syphon tank I could get into the 270s on a good day.



And I dubbed it the Franken PT. It was still holsterable. It got its share of eliminations. But it still had all of the PTX's undesirable traits. It chopped (due to the recock gasses venting directly up the feed port, compressing the ball stack and either smashing the ball on the rebound or slicing it in half if trigger speed exceeded 4-5bps). Oh, and cup seal failures galore.

I also volunteered to be the Moderator at the SASE that HaveBlue hosts on Airsoldier.com (which is currently unavailable along with a lot of other premium sites). But I digress. Being the moderator, I am somewhat obliged to venture into uncharted territory.

I had a Fatty and a Rock, a Mac and a Morlock, just lying around. My Rainmaker transmogrified into a Q-loader (5 pods, 2 different sockets plus the reloading getup) and some parts for my someday to be released Pneumag bull pup thingy (but that's an entirely different thread).

What to do, what to do, what to do?



My mission was clear. I HAD to make the worlds first Spimmy out of a PTX .



It lives, for now, on life support. . . Stay tuned.

Well you know he's a Canadian, and they don't have much to do up there like actually play paintball...

Ok anyway, wow Ken, can't wait to see if this actually works.

When you tap the trigger the bolt moves back and forth and there is a refreshingly loud popping noise. It'll work. And it should eliminate the chopping issue.

I have my nipples crossed that it'll have decent playable velocity. (note to self, must get grinding on the ram sleeve to allow redicularge flow to the bolt)

Now, to get someone to cut me a decent barrel that I can actually afford. You talk to Craig yet Curt?

The cost is somewhat prohibitive but if you are willing to pony up the cash (up front) and don't mind waiting for it I might consider it.

Steve, its a little more refined than the Stingray that switch was for

Shooting will have to wait until the rain stops and the drone at my local PB shop pulls his head out of . .. somewhere and will agree to fill my 3.5oz tanks.
