Tim Schloss of Gateway Paintball commissioned these bodies from his friend, Mike Cassidy. The goal was to create a rental-friendly Mag. Lightweight, cocker barrel, cocker detent, Inferno(?) style feedneck with o-ring hopper retention. When they arrived, only CP detents would reach deep enough to do the job, and CP detents are garbage (would fail after X number of shots). They were sent back to have the body milled flat in detent area and now have NOS WGP detents. Overall, Mike knocked the project out of the park, and later had some type of arrangement with the short-lived Gearhedz paintball to sell a threaded feedneck version under their name.

All well-used, will have a variety of valves (Rental stamped, Automag, Minimag), all were serviced some time ago but probably shoot fine (I don't think they were used after the last service).

Pretty good deal if you ask me, but expect to do a deep cleaning

Damn, you didn't have to confirm that. Now I have to think of why i DON'T want one

Is shipping worth it? (260miles from KC, 33mpg, $2.50-ish/gal gas....so $40 round trip...shipping is worth it)

Does that feedneck with the oring in it really hold a hopper very well? I've only ever used feednecks that have some kind of clamping mechanism, a screw/nut at very least.

They are charging $96 for shipping to Alaska. Umm, flat rate boxes are nice this time of year...
