Ahh whoops... I thought the Pro Carb was excellent with siphon'd CO2... Oh well, I'm sure it'll still run great on regular CO2 lol. Good think I didn't install a siphon in my tank.

To be honest I'm not 100% on what drop it is had it laying round in one of my bags of parts for a while from one my older Automag projects. It's either a shock tech micro or a cp something can't remember.

As for were the shop I seen the kit it's called FLAGRAIDERS paintball in cambridge Ontario. The owner there is got ALOT of old school stuff ands been in business since paintballs beginning. Great bunch of guys and have a pretty big Web paintball show Behind The Bunker.

I have ran a pro carbine as my primary for 2 years now. Love it! The best thing you can do for this gun is buy an HPA tank for it. Brings it some consistency and accuracy. Some other things you can easily do if your a little handy is to remove the rear cap and look at the end that was just inside the gun. You will notice an inset in the cap where the spring pin usually sets. Drill through that, then thread the hole you just made. I forget the exact size but whatever size tap seems to fit best will work. Then go to your local hardware store and find a set screw to fit. Best $1.29 I've spent on the gun.

Also: This is tricky if your not use to working on these guns, so beware. I found that even with the homemade RVA, the stock velocity adjuster, and a soft spring from a model 98 sping kit that I could not get the BPS to drop below 290+. So I removed the valve from the gun, then removed the clip from the rear of the valve (not a c-clip, more of a key-ring like fastener). This is made easier if you push in the brass plug with something to remove the pressure from the clip. Once the clip is out, you can remove the guts of the valve. (3 pieces: Brass plug, spring and valve cup/pin). Now, carefully stretch that spring (careful not to bend). Mine bent a little at one end, so I put that end up against the brass plug (not the cup seal, or it may not seal correctly). The goal here is to stretch that spring back out and make it harder for the hammer to release pressure when you pull the trigger. It may be a good idea to measure the spring to make sure you actually do some good. Once your done, replace the o-ring on the brass plug reassemble the valve and re install it. I did this to my gun and was then able to adjust my BPS to a reasonable rate (265~).

If your wanting to know what will fit the pro carbine from other tippmann guns. The procarbine and A5 share the same barrel threads (but not the 98). All 3 guns share the same hammer spring (but not trigger spring) and I imagine the same spring pin but not sure. The 98 cocking knob will fit a pro carbine but a pro carbine cocking knob will not fit a 98. The linkage arm that connects the front bolt to the rear hammer are the same for 98's, procarbines, and I think pro lites also. 98, A5, and pro carbine detents are universal. Grips for most tippmanns should all be the same. Here is a old, but good site for some other pro carbine tricks. mods

Technically, Pro/Carbine uses the Pro-Lite, 68 Carbine, Pro/Carbine threads, now it is dubbed "A5/X7" threads. Be extremely careful when choosing A5/X7 barrels though. I have found out if the barrel company do not cut the back end (threads area) of the barrel short enough, the front bolt will actually slam into the back of the barrel and get stuck thus causing cycling problems. So far I have found out the Deadlywind Null barrel does this, but Lapco and J&J are still good. I currently run a 12 inch J&J Ceramic on my Pro/Carbine.

And as a fellow Pro/Carbine owner, I can say there isn't much upgrades anymore. Depending on your style; Milsim or Tourney, there are somethings you could play around with. If you look at my sig, I have gone through the Milsim phase with my Pro/Carbine, and I am now at the speedball phase. Right now, for me, it's a matter of keeping it simple and basic. My current speedball setup on my "Pro/Carbine" has a custom cut feedneck/hand guard, Palmers Stabilizer, and an Allen Paintball grip frame. I also have a mini SP drop forward with a mini CP on/off ASA.

More Pictures here.

As far as where to get parts, eBay would be your best bet. I still saw an Allen Paintball grip frame on there before, and I just recently picked up my J&J barrel from eBay too. Palmers still carries the Stabilizer, I highly recommend that, since the Vertical Air Adapter kit is pretty rare these days. The Palmers Stabilizer has been with my P/C since the CO2 days and now I am using HPA with it, and it still works fantastically.

Matt's Pro/Carbine page: Matt's Pro/Carbine Page has some really cool mods you can do. It is where I learned the feedneck mod.

Hope this helps!
