Pneu blazer <hip hip, horray!>

Or maybe a custom viking but youve had one. I liked the feel of my e2 trigger alot better than my viking trigger.

I want a single trigger viking or exalibur really.

For hoppers I dont like halos very much. Mine always liked to crush balls on me and ruin 140 rounds of paint.

I loved the evo 2 i had.. a Z boarded egg 2 is just an excellent loader. Shells are too beefy but the new ones arent bad. Not as good as an early revvy but a huge improvement over the early evo 2's.

Second choice would be a Vlocity.

Only halo id want and trust is one with a cheetah board, s4 drive cone, and a bone battery pack. Way over 200 dollars for something like that...

So Egg2 with Z board, and a Vlocity..with good rechargable batteries.

Loader choice depends on the gun in many ways for me. Id never use a Vlocity on an autococker with a WGP body because it mounts way way too high. an evolution 2 and a no pro feedneck on the WGP body can let the evo 2 sit down about as low as possible even with the awefully tall WGP feeds.

And with a Blazer and its imbetted vertical feedneck I am compelled to use a good revvy or other gravity feed loader because the feedneck height is designed around gravity feed. With a pneu trigger Id want to modify the feedneck and there are alot of options for that.

I like the looks of the pneumatic Blazer. If only I was a bit more handy, and had the correct tools. Besides the fact that it would be fun to confuse the kids to have that light a trigger pull without needing batteries.


Is there anybody out there that does that mod?

What's your budget and how custom do you want your marker?

I know you've had a Viking, but I don't think you will find a better electro out there, certainly not for the price. Unless you try an Excalibur which would be a little smoother than the Viking. A Viking or Excalibur with milling and/or a good anno job would definitely turn eyes and shoot . . . how was it described earlier . . . "like a scalded dog". Replace the trigger switch with a 25g switch and you can literally breath on the trigger and fire the marker. The marker will be competitive with all the kiddie AGG markers but will be unique and actually have a personality of its own. That said, an e-Blazer would also be unique in the tournament scene.

For mech, all I can say is "Wow" re: that pneuBlazer. I wonder why this mod isn't done more. I wonder what it would cost to have that done.

For a hopper, I always wanted to take a Ricochet and angle the feed tube to ~ 45* so a 45* elbow wasn't needed. Just a clamping band to join the hopper to the feedneck.

Good luck on your project.

Edit: Just two more thoughts re: an electro. Every tried a Diadem? How about a customized Rainmaker? The noise will drive the AGG kids crazy.

what ever you decided, I think you have better decided on it pretty fast, more and more Airsmith are been run off with pitch forks and torches, pretty soon the only custom gun options you will have to pick from will be the color of your Ion body

I say a half blocked cocker or maybe a viking.

You want something custom, see what Claudio could whip up for you in the form of a VM

Till then, hit the speedball feild with the vector, adn scare the crap outa them!

As for hoppers, evo2 iws a great hopper, just oddly shaped and prone to cracking. Halos feed nice and can even push through broken shell in the breech, but like to break down (I fried a board on a barely used one at castle). That new VL looks odd and tall, but I have yet to see one.

The Qloader limits your paint, but feeds like a dream and is easly to re-load. Love mine, in fact im going to pick up more pods and another loader socket and stick with it for a while.

Too late. Carter's already got the greatest Rainmaker ever (E-Vector).
