62 cal Bushmaster SI

Wow I just found the MCB bluebook on this. Well I'm definetly not going to FUBAR this in the lathe.

I spent the morning disassembling cleaning it and taking pics. This thing has seen very little action if any. There is no noticable wear on the body under the pump. Unfortunatly the end has been scratched by set screw on the brass tip. To my surprise the hammer is adjustable. I was blown away that they engraved the powertube with "SI" and stamped a 4 on the other side. I love the fit and finish of this marker. Like I said, I've waited 20 years to get my hand on one and I'm truly impressed. I just NEED some 62 cal paint now!! The only downfall is that the screws are allen heads w/ aluminum caps. Here are some pics.





















So just how many of these were made and how many survived? Does anyone make 62 cal paint because I would love to see this thing shoot.

I've recieved a few offers to trade this but realy need to think about what I realy want in a SI before I take any offers. I also want to take moment to marvel at the craftsmanship that went into this. So If i don't instantly reply to a PM I hope you understand.

Brian

At the rate paint manufacturers are going we'll all be shooting .62 caliber paint before too long. I believe that Nelson still makes .62 cal.
Congrats to you sir!

Thanks Biscuit.

I've contacted Nelson and will hopefully get a price quote and some 62cal paint soon.

Because of the size and weight difference of the paint, What is the safety limit at the chrono for this thing? This gun already looks mean the last thing I want to do is hurt someone.

If I recall correctly we ran SMG-60s at 340.

280-300 at most fields regardless of size, I know.... I know!

Unless you play outlaw...in which case your friends can help you figure out a fair limit. Small calibers are meant to go faster...but commercial fields are 300 and under without exception.

This is true. One of the main drivers behind this is the insurance company.

New Toy

So Like most OCP paintball collectors, I picked up another Bushmaster SI.



This one is in 68 cal and is in great shape.





The original barrel didn't fit the field paint I use well and the accuracy and efficiency fell far below 20 years of expectations. Like most field paint it runs small in the 0.681-0.683 range. Lapco in my opinion makes the best barrels ever. Unfortunately, I only had was an Angle auto-spirit in 0.687 I picked up on Ebay for under $20. I cut the threads off in the lathe. I drilled and hand reamed the back to take freak inserts and then turned it again on the lathe to fit the body.







Iím still learning how to shot it accurately but the pattern is allot better. The surprise for me was the jump in efficiency. At 40 shots Iím still 270+ on a 12gram!
