"Sword of Dawn"- My next project.

Well, i've decided to undertake my first brass marker. from scratch.

basically, i'm making a spring fed Typhoon clone... but longer.

i'm going to have one of the members at MCB who stocks brass, machine the tubes and custom components for me.

a 20-24" total length for the barrel tube, PGP valve, hammer and bolt assemblies, the bottom valve tube will be aproximately 10" long housing an LPR. the feed tube will be side mounted though.
i will have it tapped to accept a vertical ASA, or perhaps a cooper backbottle setup. (backbottle sounds really good!)
it will have rosewood grips and foregrip, and be Silver plated (silver, not chrome)

yes...

the kicker is the fact i'm going to see if Palmer's will do the frame for me.,.. otherwise i may have to use a slider cocker frame
definitley think i'm going to go the route of getting a Cooper backbottle thingie... but will have to send it in to get annoed black or clear

lol, run off of a 9oz 'stubby' bottle (just the regular bottle, not the long ones you can get)

i am still working out the dimensions, but it's definitley going to be between 16" and 20" for the barrel.. (I was using a vert air marker for reference)

i'm still digging the spring feed though (no ugly hopper!)

and the bottom valve tube will be around 10-12"

if there is another, reliable person who is willing to do the frame (provided the 3-way and frame) for under $75, i'd like to know
