    Pballer413 Collection Thread

    This is about 90% of my current collection always working on adding more pieces so will work on getting everything posted and keeping this up to date. I try not to have any wall hangers so I have included photo's of the markers being used at mostly Scenario events when I come across them. Fortunately I have been playing a good amount the last few years so these markers have been getting out more often, unfortunately that means I have less time to tech than I used to so some of these are in project status.

    Planet Eclipse



    Twistr Geo 4, the Geo 3.5 has been one of my favorite guns to shoot so when I saw the Geo 4 coming out I was very interested to try one but figured I would wait to get something used. When I saw the Twistr Geo 4 coming out I knew that I wanted to add it to my collection.

    Air Assault Paintball Veterans Day Guns, I was in the Marines and my office is a mix of military and paintball so military themed paintball markers just seem like a fit.
    Quote from Air Assauly regarding the Markers
    “Here at Air Assault Paintball we remember Veterans Day every year. Veterans Day is not only a public holiday dedicated to honoring United States military, it was also is a day to remember the end of World War I. Every year Veterans Day falls on November 11th and is not to be confused with Memorial Day. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all Military Veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering fallen men and women who gave their lives while in service. Although there is no mail service on this day we will be open for paintball play. In honor of both our current and fallen military Air Assault Paintball has released multiple limited edition Planet Eclipse veteran paintball markers since 2009. Two of the most memorable editions being the USMC EGO 11 and the POW*MIA LV1”

    POW MIA LV1.5 (1 of 12). This is the first gun I have bought new since the release of the Ion. I wish it was released in the rising sun theme as well but beggars can't be choosers I guess. I paired this up with a pair of CSL screws and barrel tip. This is my main marker.



    Game Play at Living Legends 11


    POW MIA LV1 Rising Sun (1 of 12). I really like the rising sun version of this and would keep this over my LV1.5. May make a few changes to this eventually but instantly one of my favorites.




    United States Marine Corps EGO 11 (1 of 12). Designed by Gary Reiersen and produced exclusively by Planet Eclipse for Air Assault Paintball. I searched for this gun for years. I am still working on my “man cave” which will be a blend of paintball and Marine Corps so this is the perfect piece for me. Currently has two matching barrel backs, CSL screw kit, DART Kit, and some custom Walnut grips that I designed/made



    Gameplay at 3rd annual Halo game at Commando Paintball


    Rising Sun POW MIA Geo (1 of 12). This marker was the second marker in my collection, first Air Assault. The "rising sun" POW is still one of my favorite designs. This was my main marker for years, I upgraded it with IV core has three barrel backs and shoots great. Recently kind of retired it as I am using my LV1.5 was sing the LV1.5 as my main. Will still get used as rec ball days.



    Had a teammate using this for Commando Paintballs Star Wars


    Joy Division Geo 3.5 The Geo 3.5 is one of my favorite shooters and I really like the anno on the Joy Division guns. Happy to add this one to my collection.




    Banzai Splash Geo 3, this was a custom anno that I purchased from someone. I am not sure who did the anno but it looks great I have three matching backs and this will be one of my backups this year.


    Apocalypse Geo 3 (1 of 50)



    ​​

    ​​EMEK if you haven't shot one of these guns you are missing out. I pack this for every game now as my bad weather / low paint / loaner / fun gun. I was honestly surprised how smooth they shoot probably swing for a pops eventually but for the money it is a great gun

    ODD Markers

    My ODD Collection for those not familiar with Odis Driftwood Designs they use to offer very custom designs for guns. I generally don't feel the (1 of 1 guns) due to lasering or anno but I do hold ODD guns on a different level. If you would like to see more of their work http://oddpb.wordpress.com/ is a site that is kind of a tribute to them and the other guns that they did.

    -My ODD Proto #41 I remember seeing this on ODD"s site when they were around and it made me decide that I would send something in for them to do work on one of mine. Unfortunately when I got out of the marine's they were no longer around, so when I saw this come up for sale I was excited to get it. I was told by previous owner that it has never been used in a game before and it looks that way.

    DLX Luxe Nebula Plated (1 of 1 Test Gun from factory) Stole some information from prior owners because they had done some research and added some of my own findings below.

    Justice Paintball stated that there was originally 3 aurora/nebula plated markers came from factory (1 was a test body for aurora; 1 was a test body for Nebula, and the 3rd was a fully completed Luxe in aurora). The one I have pictured below is the Test Body for Nebula.

    Through my own research I see that a user on pbnation cutstep (no longer active) appears to have been the one doing the aurora for ODD at the time. He mentions that aurora plating can peel and anyone that has owned or seen the aurora 07 ego parts may have witnessed this. Cutstep mentions if applied properly you wont have this issue and I will say that this Luxe has been applied correctly, it shows definite wear to the point of the aurora finish looking chrome where it was handled heavily but there are no signs of pitting or flaking on the gun. In Cutstep's thread he does state that he did a luxe for Darryl trent which would coincide with the information from TorontoCore and Justice Paintball.

    Nebula I got this gun in and TorontCore had done some modernizing but I wanted to do a bit more. I part swapped the frame from a gloss black OLED Luxe so this is now an OLED all the way around except the body and eye covers

    Bad pic but game pic at Battlefiled Paintball in Osseo WI


    See above, this was one of the three test bodies as well (the aurora) only seemed fitting to end up back where it belonged. Since I brought the Nubula up to speed I wanted to do the same with the Aurora. I bought a white OLED but I wasn't happy with the combo so I ended up getting a T800 OLED Luxe and swapped the bodies. End result pretty shiny but I am pretty happy with the looks.

      Camo Luxe 2.0

      All Americans Adrenaline Shocker I really liked the anno on these when I first saw them released paid more than I would have like but was happy to get one in my collection. Great shooting marker, I also ordered an Adrenaline Luxe to go into my collection whenever that is finished

        Dye/Proto/Matrix




        IM9 Claret & Champagne (my favorite colorway the came in) I first saw the IM9's when a friend showed me a picture right before we came back from Iraq (forgot the magazine but this was in 2009). I saw this exact color IM9 and decided I would buy one. I was deployed for most of 09 so I wasn't able to get a new one but I did eventually get one in my collection. I have had a few other IM9's as well (Ice and the black and red). This one is in great cosmetic condition the crosses are still red which always faded on these.



        Boom M2 M2's are great shooters although I didn't plan on keeping one in my collection. This one does have some sentimental value to me as Boom is a local team and back in the day I used to play against and even with them in a few tournaments. So to see all these years later that they had their own marker figured I would keep one around.

          Cocker








          Just got this cocker in and it really is a team gun that I am very happy to hold on to. Paintball to Go in Roodhouse IL had a scenario game Battle on Monte Casino that Dan Colby and Bud Orr both generaled at the last two years. The team I am on played both years and this year the field hosted a "Top Gun" pump tournament the night before the game started. They took 50 volunteers and gave us all Sniper auto cockers and we played 1v1 to see who would be the Top Gun. The team I am on SAS Yeti Squad entered almost all of our players to increase our chances of winning even though most of us have never played pump but fortunately the plan worked and the final match was two of our players playing against each other. The guy that won the gun is not a big cocker guy so he knew myself and another teammate would really appreciate it. Bud said he thinks this is a one of three in this fade and this one was never issued out and came with the box that both Bud and Dan Colby signed at the event.






          Flame I bought this as a pitted chrome Flame with a red anno and a "barn yard find" Marker was in pretty rough condition so I decided I would get it rebuilt. I originally wanted to run it as a "rat rod" ugly plating and all but the guy I sent it to for rebuild talked me into stripping it and going with a straight gloss black anno. Rebuilt with an Inception Regulator, Inception ASA and Reail, Shocktech Bolt and Push Pin, Shockteck Phuematic's, Shockteck Ball Detent, Shocktech Beavertail, Shocktech Trigger Shoe, Shocktech Timing Rod, Shocktech Internals. Not exactly stock but I figured I would
          Before

          After




          Fire in a box, Flame Autococker project. When I got my last flame autococker in it had some pitting and I wanted to run it as a "rat rod" type of build. When I sent it to get rebuilt and new internals the guy rebuilding it suggested anno and I kind of was talked into it and regretted it a bit. So I was happy to come across another one, again the chrome is flaking a bit, but that doesn't really matter too much to me. I am going to get this one rebuilt and run it at she is.


          (1 of 10) Plated Karnivor


          Inception Designs (1 of 50) Twistr Autocockers with a tri fade anno. This thing may make me put my Emek into retirement.



          Inception Designs Ripper Gloss Black with Red Acid



          White Wolf Airsmith Ripper E-Blade. Years ago I wanted one of these with the rail milled off, as I saw another one in a collection thread. I was finally able to get a ripper body by trading some jerseys out of my collection but I think I am going to keep the rail. I like the fade on it and although I am not a blue marker guy I think it works. Also the inception ripper is convertible so kind of have both now.
          [img]https://i.postimg.cc/RhwkmMMM/DSCN2892.jpg[/img


          First Cocker project is my Spanky graveyard autococker, these were individually airbrushed then clear coated. Because of this there is some variations from gun to gun which I think is awesome, unfortunately I don't have the matching shroud. It shows some use but still a great gun and my first pump


          Excited for my first cocker build, wanted a convertible ripper for awhile so when these came up at PBE I knew I would be getting at least one... Will take me awhile and still debating getting another do do a pump and a mech but we will see.


          Ripper Resurrection, I really like the milling on these bodies, immediately bought this body when they came out this was a sniper for a bit but I am not a pump guy so was happy to get it converted to mechanical.





          Flatline Autococker I bought this in a Lot of 60 plus guns and this things had dirt caked on it. Still a neat marker I will need to get it going and brought out to the field at some point


          Shockteck Tremor Series SFL


          Dye Ultralight "Creamsicle" this is one of those markers that I have always drooled over even though I am not the biggest cocker guy. I like the Creamsicle fade and just think the marker looks great. Was happy to finally find one in outstanding condition to add to my collection

            Axe/Empire







            I used to avoid these when everyone was trading axe plus cash, but eventually I joined a scenario team were the majority of the players used them so I scooped one up as a team loaner and realized how simple they are. Great guns for the money easy to maintain fairly cheap to replace parts if needed. At one point I owned about 20 but have since skimmed down. I really like the ripper bodies so I will keep that one and I usually keep another one or two to loan out while at the field to new players.



            1 of 1 Factory Anno by BPS. Boston Paintball released 4 final Twistr Bodies in 1 off splashes (I gave one to a teammate and currently have the other 3 of the 4 in my collection)


            Gameplay at Blast Camp Paintball "The Purge"



            2nd 1 of 1 Splash bodies referenced above


            Gameplay from Blastcamps Battle of Hoth



            3rd 1 of 1 Splash bodies referenced above


            Twistr Axe


            Vanquish SSX (1 of 40) To stay with the Boston Paintball Theme I bought one of the SSX Vanquishes. I wasn't the biggest fan of the lasering on the first one that I bought so when I saw this one come up I figured the Red White and Blue kind of fit my collection a bitt better



            “USMC” Axe Pro. Unfortunately this gun is in my collection because I would be to embarrassed to sell it. There was a user on here that was offering free laser to a certain amount of users as a proof of work. He did 5 jobs and I was the 5th free one. After seeing the others I was hopeful, he asked me for some ideas before hand, and I though it would be a good color to do a military theme with. I sent a few pictures for ideas as he asked and unfortunately the pictures look pixelated and there was no other lasering done so it looks pretty empty as well. I sent an axe for a reason and it was free so I won’t complain (other then here) but some day I may need try to, send in for additional lasering

              Bob Long



              Bob Long Marq, honestly not a gun I really thought I would have in my collection but I liked the anno work and figured it was a pretty neat piece to have






              I don't know as much about Timmy's as I would like. The A-Bomb and Naughty Dogs have always been some of my favorite millings available on these. I did have a new Ripper in candy apple red project that I sold in 2017 since I wasn't able to build it at that time and I regret to this day.

              A-Bomb Timmy, have had few of these come and go and always had intentions to get them anno'd but have been dragging my feet for a few years don’t let the collection fool you I am cheap). This one is in good condition and I intend to get it anno'd eventually but I think it still looks good for the time being. Again this marker came out in 2004 and I believe was the lightest intimidator of the series.
              Well I finally sent one out for anno pics following the progress and review will be below when I have them.


              Naughty Dogs


              Dragon Project this gun needs to be rebuilt completely. I bought this in a lot with 14 other Timmy's and while I was going through them my at the time 4 year old daughter who loves dinosaurs and dragons said she would buy it. I told her to get her money and she paid 35 cents for it she has since bought a dye cf barrel with PGA green tip that kind of matches the gun. I guess this will be her upgrade from the ebolted 98

                  Smart Parts









                  Shockers I remember when the ads for the first SFT shocker came out, it was instantly the coolest gun in my opinion. Half my team switched I couldn't afford the switch but I have always owned a shocker since I started collecting. I owned almost all the PL bodies (never had a Gmax or Pre Cup strange) at one point but never used them so I sold them. Now I just have the few in my collection

                  Signature Series NXT Project shocker. Recently saw the signature series Angel Fragoza Ghetto Superstar 006 for sale and scooped it up.

                  Dynasty Ion wanted to convert this to a mech...eventually


                  Tippman








                  20th Anniversary Edition 98 custom, this is still NIB and may be on display. I still debate throwing an Ebolt on it and just playing with it.

                    Joker Ace these are sometimes referred to as the poor man's Westwood as it has the 5 scoops. This one is in a Factory anno of dark blue to light blue with a white splash. Pretty awesome marker missing the stock barrel but great looking marker



                    Airstar Nova 700 these are project markers that I hope to get to someday the anno on them is just awesome so I will keep one for my collection for sure

                      Slow clap begins... great collection. For me the flatline autococker and 20 anniversary tippy 98 were my favorites. Kind of an odd pair... but one is foundational block of the sport of paintball and the other is a super quirky and unique item we will never see again. Thumbs up, sir.

                        My fav was the NIB orracle, got to see you get it in person. I was at the same big game and wanted to enter the pump event but i got there late and missed getting a spot before it filled up. Probably for the best cause I would of stuck a reg on it and played with it and eventually it would get dinged up like all my markers do. .

                          It was a great event, kind of looking for a stock reg and ASA to put on it to try and make it complete.

                          pballer413! I'd put a ergo reg on it instead of a orracle one. But that's how i would want it to look. . Your right though, an original reg would be more correct.

                        An e-bolt won't fit in the 20th Anniversary 98, only an egrip or R/T will.

                        Were you on model98.org back in the day? It was *the* place for 98 modders. I miss that place.

                          Good to know, to be honest it has been in it's box since I got in on an ebay auction. I guess that answered my question.
                          I was on the Tippman forums back in the day, actually met up with the A5OG as a young 14 year old at the Tippman World Challenge in the early 2000's. Spent hours on the forums reading about doing mods to the 98 custom and then would go to my buddies garage and try them out. I think we had one of the first couple vert fed 98's and A5's. Took it to a drill press and then JB welded a feed neck on it before the rufus dawg kits where a thing.
