Totmacher 13, A love story

A bit more than a year ago, I found myself in position of a good condition (i.e. barely used) FN303, complete.



I immediately had the valve off to my local machine shop for cutting the laser welds and, turning me a custom, delrin insert that fills the entire volume except for the minimal amount needed for proper velocity and, ensuring a smooth rear to front air flow to the powertube.

I then immediately set about getting more magazines (I wanted to build up what I consider to be my required inventory as I know these things can be very hard to get). Once I had the magazines I needed (late march of this year), I then set about setting it up for paintball.

Tymcneer (Brass Monkey Customs) found that the machine shop took just a hair too much material from the valve and it was causing me problems. He fixed that problem and, installed a ULT trigger to give me a short, crisp pull. I also had him re-thread me a Hammerhead barrel to get rid of the fin, and adapt it for Autococker threads. I also had a custom raincover fabricated. I set it up for a remote line and, duracoated it in my custom camo pattern:



I set it up initially with an HHA Optimizer, a Leupold Laser Rangefinder, and my custom 22x Zoom GoPo camera (I intend to capture video of those targets I shoot at ranges farther than 40yds), held in place by Inception Designs' Picatinny GoPro mount and, a custom offset made by Olane over on MCB:

Love it, especially the camo job. I'm not normally a fan of digi camos, but that just works. Kudos.

It's not too obvious in the pics but, it's actually a four color pattern, The obvious fades of brown and tan and, also light green and dark green. It's predominantly browns as it's easier to add more green (camo netting and such) when I need it.

Thanks again!

Operator error precluded me from getting any usable gun camera footage. I did get some somewhat interesting helmet cam footage. I kept getting sent on missions into the thickest parts of the field where visibility wasn't any more than 30-40ft so, this year's game wasn't that fun for me either.

Next year, I think I run alone or on a small, dedicated team.

I've found that usually ends up being the most fun way to play. With the right guys you can have a very imposing effect on the field and flow of the game.
