Updates to WK2's '08 Grey Ghost

Well I have been talking about this for awhile and have finally got around to it... I hate having stop at Wally World (Walmart) and buy 12 grams ( Crosman at that ) when I go out to the field and they have all day air but no 12 grams... So I have updated the Ghost to take HPA...

These are the most recent updates after receiving the Ghost back from Lapco Paintball after a little tune up ...

Updates:

AKA Sidewinder Regulator
Ninja 13ci 3000 tank
red NDZ thread saver on/off w/purge
Lower Stainless Braided Line w/quick disconnect ( I also heat shrink wrap all my stainless braid )
Lapco duck bill ASA
Built a new marker stand for the Ghost

other updates in the mail :

Lapco Vertical Feed Adapter made for the Ghost
Winchester Hopper w/lid mod
10" Lapco Big Shot "Assault" barrel in .687

Well on to the Marker Pics :









After doing my HPA set-up I was lucky to sneak away from the house yesterday to a brand new paintball field in my AO (35 minutes from the house) called STARRiON Paintball... I got there a little after 10:00hrs and and got signed in,,, paid my $20 (included field fee, all day air and lunch) and set-up in the staging area... I chrono'd in at 280 +/- 2 FPS and talked awhile with the field owner...

Well the day went great and all I could say is when I left I only went through a bag of paint (not my normal 2 cases when I use the Viking) and left with a new found local field... Everybody who shot the Ghost was amazed by how light it was ( weighed it on a postal scale as seen in above pics at 3.27 lbs ) and how accurate the marker shot...

Anyway I will update this when I get the other updates in...

What pressure do you set the reg to?

Yeah I swear my Ghost weighs half as much as my Buzzard.

I can't stand paying with a 15 round tube though, I cut mine down to 12 pretty quick.

I am not really sure what the reg is set at ( a reg pressure tester is on my to-do list)... Last time I chrono'd using 12's I had the marker set at 285 FPS... I bought the reg used from Pullman and as soon as I got it I put it on the marker... I went to the field and adjusted the reg out to bring the pressure up and hit 280 FPS (field limit)...

When I build my pressure tester I will post up my findings...

Interesting, makes me wonder if I could run HPA on mine with the Gladiator off my Cyborg...

And I'm in the same boat as russc, but my solution was just buying a CCI block rather than cutting up the Lapco one .

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

Very Nice Splattttt ,,,

Suicide Medic (aka Tetanus) is hooking me up with a neoprene 13ci tank cover w/squeegee holder... I also have a Crown Royal bag that would fit ...

Hopefully my other updates will be in pretty soon...

Underdog,,,

When HH6 lets me out of the house I will see if I can make it up that way... I have just started going to STARRiON Paintball in Shelbyville and they have a great field there... You guys should try to make it to STARRiON this weekend and check things out,,, there should be a healthy crowd there from what I understand this Saturday...

here's a link to STARRiON : STARRiON Paintball Club
here's a link here on MCB for STARRiON : https://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/s...middle-tn.html

Hope to link up with you guys sometime soon in the near future... Thank You for the nice comments on the Ghost ...
