Money Pits 'R Us
Updated 02/24 - pbyrne233's Shiny Things and Money Pits
I enjoy bright colors, cockers, pumps, Planet Eclipse guns, and odd balls. I'll try to put them in some semblance of a logical order.
2k5 Black Magic
Midblock 2k5, anodizing by Blizzard. Ribbon slot milling by Angry Antle. Features an empire bolt and a Mozak sled that was custom cut (if you have a 2k5 bolt/sled, PM me). Sconi feedneck, Doc's Machine eye cover.
My first cocker. Has since become a franken-loaner pump. Impulse Reg, Dye Drop forward.
System X Vengeance 2.0 NO LONGER IN MY COLLECTION
Not technically a matching barrel, but close enough. Recently teched by Tim Firpo, shoots great.
Palmer's Swiss Cheese
#5 of 5 (technically, 6). Tequila Sunrise with full CP kit, a freak bored CP back, and a TI Dye Boomstick (seen in the last photo).
Cotton Candy STO
WGP slider and pink .45 grips. Definitely a player's gun.
Blood Spatter Cerakote by VooDoo Coatings. Sanchez dual rod pump kit and custom Stinger grips (+1 internet cookies for whoever knows the comic)
2k2 Black Magic
One of my childhood dream guns. Shocktech slider, Committed Paintball pump kit, CCM feedneck. Lots of city miles on this bad larry, but shoots a dream.
Belsales Evolution X
Another childhood dream gun. Added the POPS ASA. Stupid smooth and a trigger pull totally unlike anything else in my collection.
Aftershock SFL NO LONGER IN MY COLLECTION
This was an actual Aftershock back up gun. As an added bonus, it has a Danny Love milled barrel (ironically, to prevent theft by teammates). This gun was ridden hard and put away wet. Received it from a former (and now current again) Shock player in the current mechanical form. Teched by Tim Firpo after spending an eternity in the sonic cleaner. This thing has dropped more Gs than Atlanta rappers in strip clubs.
My personal unicorn. I've wanted one since I saw an original while playing at AG Paintball when I was twelve. #14 (my jersey number) with two matching fronts. If you ever see this for sale, let me know, because it means I was robbed. She is slightly dirty because she gets used often. Always keep the cow in the case (for luck).
PMS Mark II
Saved this beauty from a pawn shop, though she does have a few dings and dents for her troubles. Was recently serviced by the legendary Mark Davis himself, and shoots buttery smooth.
Started life as a WGP vertical feed. Empire Feedneck milled by Doc's Machine, SL3 reg, Freeflow hammer, AKA Tornado Valve, AKA bolt, Committed Paintball Pump kit, POPs ASA, Benchmark Slider, Shocktech shoe. This is definitely my primary pump, anyone who has shot it knows why.
System X Vengeance 4.0 Project
I love how much a hate this thing. Started as a frame and a body. Solenoid is toast, and honestly, I hate working on her. Put I will press on. Maybe it'll hit the field in 2021.
Meteor Feather V1
Boxed for anno, just need to gather the funds..
HEX Stock Class Cocker
Probably the ugliest hand dremeled stock class cocker you've ever seen. Cheap changer, CCM Pump kit, custom wood grips, hand drilled for Phantom Feed, Doc's Tanto Barrel. Lots of parts bin pieces on this beauty. Anno by Stained Works.
Saved a beaten old FBM Cobra off eBay. Ditched the pitted/flaking shocktech frame for a DYE Professional, added the feedneck/rail. Had to re-epoxy the body and fill some threaded body holes. She needs a new valve o-ring, then she should be operational.

Virture board. Sadly, non functioning due to solenoid issues.
My first real high end and what started my love affair with PE. Virtue board and Luck Un1tec barrel kit. Also non functioning due to solenoid issues.
ACI Blind Rage
Honestly the strangest gun I own. It takes a 9V and a AAA battery. Without either battery inside, it weighs as much as the 05 and 06 Egos COMBINED. Shoots somewhat decently eyes work pretty well, trigger is sloppy as hell. Cool example of the lengths manufacturers were going to in order to compete with the Ion in the early 00's.
Manchester Half Cock'D Ego 11
My former primary, now used by whoever on the team doesn't have working gear (which is everyone, at one point or another). Lasering by Harrison Frye of Seattle Thunder.
Geo 3 NO LONGER IN MY COLLECTION
My primary these days. IV Core, beat to hell, reliable AF.
2k5'd Dragon Intimidator Build
Hybrid Feedneck, AKA 2Liter, Bob Long ASA, Chaos Board. Project in a bit of a holding pattern til I wrap up my Cocker projects.
System X NME
Goregous red to black fade. Always love the milling on these. Pretty much bone stock, considering putting a Chaos Board in it so I can run it in tournaments.
Vamped TWISTER CS2
My new primary. Upgraded to the Red grips. Stupid pretty.

General pumps and other oddball things:
This was one of Doc's Phantom Internals barn saves. I missed out on the first wave. Someone commissioned this but never responded to Doc's emails or paid him, so I got my number called and snagged it. Shoots great, despite the rust.
Azodin KP II+
This was the last version of the Khaos Pump made before they went to the half block style they have now. Came with the locking feedneck, single trigger, and on/off ASA standard. Really shoots super nice, I keep it as my back up due to the high reliability.
Purchased this as a beat up rental for $20. Cut the fore grip and widened the opening for an APEX, new aluminum bolt, GearHead Paintball feedneck to stock class adapter, BT spring loaded feedtube, JCS folding stock, and some random, not working Red Dot for added Mag-Fed Coolness. Hasn't been shot in anger since I finished it.
Just got it back from Ghost Flanker! Now I need a barrel and some of those new Planet Eclipse magazines.
Affectionately known as Caffeine and Hate. TFG Mech kit, hand cut/sanded body and trigger guard, Shocktech feedneck. Haven't had it running perfect yet, still a few gremlins to chase down.
Gorgeous little Phantom I received in trade for my Geo3. Wasn't planning on keeping it, but it's so pretty.... Also replaced the stickies with Hogues so I stop getting stabbed in the webbing of my hand.
Won Surf2Live's giveaway last year for a grip adapter and made this for the 2019 Santa Shoot Out. ReconSlide, feedneck milled by CMN Fabrication, Empire springfeed and freedummy detent.

I remember Nuke on CC being a strong ball roller to getting Craig to do this run. Craig agreed if there was x amount of interest and if those wanting guns supplied frames they wanted built-up, or other non Palmer's parts for that matter. A number of members supplied him with Shocktech surplus frames on eBay; at the time the tolerance issues with these frames were not as well known about. Craig built them with each members specified innards because that was what supplied to him. From what I've seen on the boards, he tried to make them better with some off the cuff airsmith tricks.
For the record, I've never handled one, I have no loyalties to the brand, I'm just versing what I remember. Some people were understandably sour for a $1000+ build but I have some empathy for Craig as he was not expecting questionable parts to build tuned machine with, add to that the non ST frame builds had no real complaint. Take it as you will
You've got some nice aluminum there.
