Who loves building parts guns

Years ago I used to love inheriting some spare parts from my buddies, scrounging for more and building a working marker out of it. Fast forward to last week when I was cleaning out my rubber maid of misc parts and found a short Spyder barrel I bought in my early days of pball and before I knew it, I've bought a Spyder body, grip, found some old orings and I'm about to secure a drop, asa and some other odds and ends. Its not profitable in any way (would have been cheaper to buy a working one) but I get a kick out of cobbling stuff together.

I thought it was just me!

I'm the same. Started off doing this sort of thing with Spyders, then added Tippmanns to the fray and now I'm onto Cockers aswell. Honestly coulda saved a bunch of money if I'd just bought new. Who am I kidding? I woulda just spent the money upgrading them anyway!

There's nothing better(or worse? not sure) than that realization that "If I just add an xxx and a yyy to this pile of parts, it'll be a complete gun! To the MCB Cave!!!"

I love building up Phantoms like this! I know it's no stretch to do but I have found cheap parts and have put together at least 4 for around a 100.00$! I did a Mag this way once as well. Now I have a S-5 body and some parts and I want to make a 12 gram gun out of it. Waiting for an 86 frame and a set of lowers on that one. Feyd...............

I have to admit a preference for Sheridan based markers. My biggest problem is I can't seem rebuild one to original stocky goodness. Have to admit I have five personnel projects ongoing and work for others coming in. There's just something about brass..

I love parts bin guns! All it takes is putting a couple pieces together to get you started, and suddenly you're frantically digging through the box looking for that one piece you saw a month ago, realizing you need to order one or two other things, and..... FRANKENMARKER!

Thumbs up

And I thought I was one of the few who did this LOL. Personally I love the Spyder platform (Compact/Java) to do this with because of the low market value = cheap parts. Great for loaners & cheap first markers for friends getting into the sport.

I don't own a non-parts gun. I think the last off-the-shelf gun I had was a G3 several years ago. I love the whole process of putting the parts together in one configuration, then deciding I don't like them that way, then trying something else, only to end up with the first configuration. Then the whole struggle to actually make the creature work. Maybe we're a little masochistic, but the payoff is definitely worth the pain!
