Anyone who is familiar with Flounder's blunderbuss will know where my head is at here.

Dang, that there is some nice fixin's! Can you modify the snap-on rear sight to fit a standard PGP with standard magazine plug? I hate the last gen version cartridge valve models without rear sights...

I can take a stab at it. My son has a PGP that I can use as a reference.

Okay, so boredom aside, I decided to try printing that barrel tip. On paper, it seems okay, but it's too weak in reality. So, I came up with something a bit more conventional in paintball. I've designed and printed a ported barrel tip for the PGP2. It's a friction fit and requires no permanent modification to the marker. Surprisingly, it turned out pretty nice. I think it gives the gun a pretty cool sci-fi look too.

As usual, the model is available on Thingiverse.

Just for fun, I decided to do something a little different. I thought that this thing was starting to look more and more like a 1950's ray gun. So, I took it one step farther.

Since my last update, I learned a few things about my pump handle design. First, print solid. In working with each of my previous handles, they all snapped in front of the pump arm when twisting it out of the way to pull the bolt. I printed the first failure with a 30% infill and the second at 50%. The layer lines were fine with forward and back, but side to side was weak. This version was printed with bottom layers set to 9999. Second, when installing a brass insert, index the threads to the gun before melting it into place. There's too much slop in a PGP pump arm unless it's screwed in all the way. I also found that when switching from printed threads to an insert, that there was more slop in the dimensions than I originally realized without the insert. So, All of the tolerances have been dialed in, lessons have been learned and sixteen hours after clicking "print", I have a solid, correctly sized and properly indexed pump handle. DONE! (for now...)

I used the stock PGP handle as a size reference, so they're exactly the same. I'd guess they would be.

This was a fun project, but these things take forever to print.

Have you looked into getting a bigger nozzle?
