Glad you liked it that XD We have been known to have a good time from time to time.

As for the name Latin King, it was what at the customer's request who happens to be of latin descent. So thats what we did.

Thanks for the questions guys!

Thanks for watching!

Those are pretty well known colors. I am glad you didn't put the crest or crown on it. Awesome work, you guys really do some incredible signature pieces. Just great work carrying the custom torch.

I like the broomstick look, but it does look like a prototype. I imagine it could have a cleaner look if you kept making the same gun. Cool one of a kind machine!

okay, you asked for opinions, even if i hate it..

the name.. is awful, its a gang name, and you made it for them in the appropriate gang colors, and you made it look like a gun, a lot of poor decision making right there

the video is straight up negging.. does that work for him at the bar? cause all it does is make him sound condescending, and make me want to pick out the flaws even more..

for starters, with hundreds of milling passes, the least you could do is remove the tooling marks im seeing all over the damn thing..

and finish the surface to a uniform shape, those lines will ALWAYS make that marker look like a roughed out mockup, and the top of the gun is very well polished, so you guys clearly know how to finish aluminum

earth's green earth? was that even necessary? digital film is pretty cheap ive heard.. so if you screw up a line, why not edit it out.. or junk it and try again.. there were multiple cuts in it already, so its not like you'd have to reshoot the WHOLE video

secondly, how does removing a half inch long, 1/16ths wide piece of material from the bottom of the trigger make it "drastically lighter"
also, splitting the trigger sounds a lot more like you screwed up estimating the bend on the new trigger guard, and opposed to doing it over, you just cut the trigger to fit.. lastly, cocker pump arms are steel.. not exactly the best choice when you're going for light weight, right?

dude in the video literally said "its very reminiscent of a firearm, which we think is very cool" which sounds WAY too much like your saying "guns are cool" also.. what guns do you know of that just have a big *** chunk cut out of the top like that?

paintball guns are typically smooth and rounded in the back so you don't screw up your lense if you bump the gun into it,. a pointy checkered piece of steel sticking out the back is probably not the best choice..
also, cutting out the pillars on the can isn't gonna make NEARLY as much of a difference as you're claiming..

that being said, nice work on the bolt parts swap, it looks good,
and though i think your reasoning for the rubber detents is a bit flawed. its neat to do things sometimes just because you can.. (when was the last time you heard of a spool bolt being ruined by the detents?)
and also, nice work on the gutting and reworking of the bolt removal system, that could not have been very easy.

also, nothing says agg like having "hate" scratched on your gun somewhere.. amiright?

I'm aware of the Latin King street gang. I work in a prison and deal with cockroaches on a daily basis. I was interested in why Vintage chose that name before I passed judgment. I was curious if it was bad taste or just ignorance.
