PistolRogue ....I wish I had found this thread earlier!

I purchased an SA17 the same time as my BT4 earlier in the year...and to be honest....I HATED the SA17 at first. I had nothing but problems with the CO2 cartridges and pierce seals (as many other users).

I will admit however...Empire stepped right up with shipping out the parts I needed when I ran out of the replacements lol.

Anyways...long story short, I ended up simply converting mine to a rifle essentially. I machined an adapter myself and used a spare line from another BT (as opposed to buying there rifled kit), and I installed a J&J 14" barrel. Last thing I need to do is hook up some sort of forward grip where the door used to be....but I really want to try a few of your tricks on the sear and bolt.

Here is where I am at as of today (shot consistent 275 on the chrono with the J&J in place after some adjustment).

From this:



To This:




I am really surprised how loud it is lol.

I have also added a red dot sight on the rear rail, and I have a small 50 round hopper I just need to pick up another BT feed adapter.

I see your point.. the lack of regulation only really effects 12g

Fortunately I already have a 13ci tank so will see how it goes once I pick up a pistol

Managed to snag a secondhand SA17 that's only fired a few hundred shots

Let the modding commence

How did you attach the macroline to the fill nipple?

A 1/8 NPT to 1/8 NPT adapter fitting. Should be easily available at most hardware stores. You just thread the macro fitting into one end and the quick disconnect nipple into the other.

Bumping oldies. Any suggestion on how to do the spring follower mod with common hand/power tools?

I did one with a piece of delrin I had laying around. I used a drill to do all the work.

Hmm, maybe I can find some sort of rod. Did you just glue it in place?

1/4" or 3/8" rod (hell even a wood dowel would work) and some jb weld to surround and hold it in place would probably do the trick just fine.

To make follower spring guide rods in the past I have used the plastic nozzles that come with silicon sealent tubes used for sealing windows/door frames

Edit - Oh and BluTack to skick it on!
