and then there were four....

Ive got three too many, okay, at least two too many...

Im keeping the one with the raised sight rail, thats my fav especially since it has the paintball daves bolt and hammer set i bought brand new way back when , well you could buy them brand new, BBA, small ec up front, lapco raised sight, and some other goodies.
then there two with car stocks, one is very original except for the car stock and the M style front grip, the other is a project that has a venturi bolt, lower spring mod, car stock, and a really poor white enamel paint job, storm trooper style (I take all responsibility, i was bored, but not bored enough to properly prep it.)
And the last one is a former EXC, with bottom line and venturi bolt, It's blue, or partly blue. I didn't do it this one i bought with blue parts, years ago...
pic is reverse order of above descriptions.

decisions, decisions.....

PS: I recently got a note from Forest over at proteam products, they should be getting a huge shipment of vm ball feed fingers in very soon, its already overdue for a month or two, supplier is behind. But it looks like hell be selling than at $4 each from what i see on the website. Good news because i need at least four of them, plus a few spares, only one of these vms has a good set., sorta...

This news just saved my VM from being sold.

It's a plastic piece that mounts under the feedneck and acts as an anti-double feed and ball detent.
Gtr, Palmer's keeps these in stock. $5 if my memory serves. Glad to hear there's going to be more than one source, though. PTP is good people.

Ah yes I see them on palmers for $10. Seems a little steep for something so small. They should sell them in 3 packs or something.

Yeah that's why I haven't gotten one yet, especially since they will get worn and bent anyway if I don't take the feed off when not using it. My VM works great until it chops paint, my homemade ones just don't hold up.

I'm still putting my first one together, and will probably be calling them up for a seal kit.
Do you run yours on HPA or co2?

pssst.... they are called Magic Fingers

I seem to recall that the real deal ones were fiber reinforced rubber.. so they lasted a while. You could flip them around if they got bent in one direction. The ones from PPS look to be just black rubber. ($9.45+ shipping)

I wonder what the ones from PTP will be made of.
