What you need, is a dual tank remote, and two massive tanks... Running out of air becomes less of an issue when you have 3 pounds of CO2 strapped to your back!

This is mine... I made it early 99 out of first gen 98's that were ex Skirmish USA rentals.



Later I swapped out the bulky sides for smaller aluminum ones after I chopped the frames.


The ultimate evolution for my DT guns was this gun... it is a monster. 25 pounds loaded, 30 bps total.

Waitasecond....

That first gun- aren't those the JT Tac-5s with the removable front ends that could be easily converted to be bottom-feeding?

Throw 2 stripped down TM7's on there... flip them both to full auto (after 3 shot safety ramp) and let them rip!

They are already wicked light... and the extendable stocks would look hella cool (like naval aa machine guns from WW2 cool).

Sorry though, I don't have the $$ for one of your products myself though...

If you remove and rotate the front ends of the first Generation Tac-5s the feedport will face downward, making it easy to rig them up in a bottom feeding configuration.

That is outstanding! I was unaware that was possible. This will definitely be a future project!

Wow your double troubles are oustanding! So far I am trying not to modify the markers too much so if the customer decides they aren't into the double trouble they will have two markers that are good to go. Things are subject to change but I am still ver y much testing the waters of business
