ok thanks for the reply.

I'm eager to build a SC sniper using a pre2k body and going pump pistol style ie sans t-stock or get a Duck style pump. I guess my biggest issue going with a sniper body will be weight. Might have to invest in some good files and sand paper.

Good luck with your second build

LOL! I love the weight with the aid of a tank - wasn't too comfy aiming without one. Might half a pre2k and round off to get a bit of reduction for my puny arms

lolz, I'm at boarding school. this weekend coming up. East coast time. It's all black, mainly dust. I need a little bit more braided line, and some longer ASA screws. Then tuning and shotcount.

I closed my other thread when i found this one.

A question i have is......Is it bad for me to be running regged 12's on a pre2k set-up with pre 2k valve. Right now im sweet spotted at 500psi on the stock reg (ill prob have to re-sweet spot)

you may be able to get more shots without a reg depending on spring setup

It isn't necessarily bad. You can get good efficiency across a wide pressure range as long as the valve, springs and marker match up to the set pressure. 500 psi can have some temperature advantage since the gas doesn't drop as far across the regulator like a 300 psi set up will.

From over bore to "match" bore, I often see a 30 fps increase. I start out testing a marker with an old over bored barrel to see if my set up will be able to play with very undersized paint. It has been noted that match boring sees the most inconsistency in the paint, but I don't get to set up for tight boring very often.

Chrony and count your shots with an overbored setup. Then drop your velocity 30 fps and count again. That will give you an idea about what your bore (only) will do for you. On a 500 psi poppet, I would think you could use a 12 or 10 inch barrel. As pressure gets lower and shot gas volume goes up, you can get more velocity (and efficiency) out of a longer barrel. Long tight barrels on high pressure start to trade off at some point, but extra barrel length is not as bad as "not enough".
