My B2K Build.

As I have a few assorted B2K's in varying level of modification, I'd like to hear your opinions on what I should frankenstein together and what I should leave alone. Many of you probably sold me these parts and or markers...

Basically, if you had this pile of parts, what would you combine for the best performance?

If I had time enough, I would just tinker with them and keep trying different combinations, but 60 hour work weeks cut into my free time.

What would you do?


1. Black B2K, VERY clean. (I'd like to leave this one alone, or restore back to factory setup.)

-Stock Internals/Bolt.
-Stock Board
-BKO LPR.
-CP Detent
-Centerflag Reg.


2.Silver X-Mill w/ PDS. This marker has seen the most use, came from the previous owner modified and pretty gunked up. Switches work but need replaced. Needs some SERIOUS deep cleaning.)

-Modified ram assembly. Doesn't appear to be ported, but has a different internal spring and looks somewhat polished.
-ShockTech Bolt. (The bolt is VERY scratched up, but works fine)
-9300 Board.
-The LPR is weird. I have to screw it 100% inwards to get the marker to cycle properly.
-PDS works fine.

3.Red Teardrop. (My daily shooter)

-Modified LPR, holes drilled to open it up by previous owner.
-Aftermarket valve installed by previous owner. (I think it's the eBay valve)
-Modified Ram Assembly - ported, devolumized and hammer lightened.
-AKA Clamping Feedneck
-Promaster Board

Parts I have in the Part's Bin:

-OTB Soft Bolt
-Alamo City Low-Blow Bolt
-MacDev Sonic LPR
-Unkown Bearing Trigger
-Eaton Ripper Magnetic Frame

Not Pictured:
-9300 Board, a couple B2K boards, and a Promaster Board.
-Another stock HPR, a couple stock LPR's
-I also have a completely stock BKO I could cannibalize parts from if I need to.

Thanks for your input and suggestions.

Free Mods
well the mod i always do is polishing the ram add some porting
also i polish the trigger switch and trigger set screw that contacts it
the regs can be modded for more flow(a lot more)
also one of the best mods is a lighter valve spring(and retuning) it makes it more efficient and quieter


things you need to pay for
homebrew a trayless setup, youll need a new noid(or buy an 05 06 ego manifold)
or buy one from Bluefork designs trayless kit if you can find them
also aftermarket regs really make a nice touch
dump the stock boards and put in MacDev stock boards, much better


i would just mod each gun as much as possible without paying, then decide what gun you want to go all out on
that MacDev LPR is really good use it on the gun you want the best

Don't bother with factor setups in B2Ks. The stock HPR and LPR left alot to be desired. If you don't have issues with it chopping I would just do a color job to make everything pop...very nice classic.

For the LPR, you probably need a new spring and that is why you have to screw it all the way down. X-mill was my favorite stock body. Dyintoliv did a great mill job on one that left only the X. The only change to that one I would do is a new HPR. I don't trust those stock ones, they just didn't have the guts for long term use. Oh and if you can find a 45* VA those seem to realy make the xmills pop.

I am surprised that this is your daily shooter due to the lack of PDS. Why is that?

Personlly, I am sitting here wondering why you have a mag frame and a sonic LPR just collecting dust! Those are two key components to any real B2K (especially a Sonic). So I would take those bad boys and put them on the X-mill. As for the bearing trigger I think the B2K is screaming for that guy over the butt trigger on there now. I would put the soft bolt on your tear drop and as for the other...well it's kind of a novelty item (depending on who you ask). I wouldn't both with it. The stock bolts were great, just cut them down to half size to reduce weight and your good to go. Oh and the BKO...I have to admit that mine (blind) chopped like a ginsu knife, so I never used it. But if it works and you have a loader that can keep up well then you've got a serious loaner there.

Ok well I gotta get back to work, and thanks for posting, it's been a while since I've gotten to talk about B2Ks....I really enjoyed it
