yeah i got it too man you're FAST!
rossy11223

I like it a lot. I remember seeing this in the marker gallery of Tippmann. It was sweet then, and it is sweet now.
Smitty

Just curious how you made that RVA.
Glassjaw

I'm really diggin' the flames man, that's awesome.
tigman250

to make the RVA i used the original as a pattern for the measurements turned the outside profile on a lathe then drilled and tapped the center with a 1/2-20 thread, threaded a piece of 1/2" stainless for the adjuster drilled a 3/16" pocket in it for the drive spring and lastly put a 6-32 set screw in the aluminum body to keep the adjuster from moving.

Haha. I highly doubt it. I love tinkering with that stuff, but don't trust myself with my 98c. I'd hate to ruin it.

Very nice. The flames look awesome.

I agree. I like how he made them white. It looks awesome with the black behind it. Way better than the red/yellow/orange flames some people do.
TriggerHappy1

Looks awsome. Is that LP RT line? What hopper you got on there too?

Cant wait untill I can start making stuff for my guns.
^Pirate^

I just thought of something, How did you make those flames? Stencil?

I want to make some, but a bit different and put them on my gun and since my guns faded I want to put the blue part on the silver and the silver part on the blue.
tigman250

yeah pirate i can't ever see myself doing anything diffrent, let me know if i can help you out in that gold metal thing, the only thing i could ever compete in is olimpic tig welding... doubt we'll ever see the day, as for the flames they're hand drawn no stencil just alot of pratice drawing flames i think the reverse fade thing would look friggin SWEET give it a try i'm sure it'll be the first

trigger it's the stock R\T line and a stock hopper Crying or Very sad i rarely shoot any more than a 3 or 4 round burst so i haven't had much trouble with chops but a hopper is definatly next on my list

thanks for all the replys and ?'s keep em coming

EDIT- smitty don't worry about messing up your marker cut loose and give it a try how do you know unless you try? besides if you make a booboo i'm sure you could find a friend who would be able to weld mistakes shut Wink
TriggerHappy1

Hmm, looked like it was larger line. What hopper do you plan to get? I just bought a Halo B, so Ill be able to final shoot about 20bps. Cant wait for it to come. Theyl be a video of it.
tigman250

don't know was thinking apache i like the looks and it's like 17-20 bps but capacity is kinda small i would also like to stay in the $60 range haven't recearched it real hard, don't really have the $ to throw at it quite yet

I'm planning on it, I guess if you want I could mail you a stamp a pencil or two and some paper and you could make some flame stencils for you but, I'm thinking on having a friend do the drawing and stencil making for me.
And Smitty, never be worried about screwing up your receivers, if you dremel too deep or something bondo it, if it's a paint job then re-do it.
tofumonkee

pretty cool, lose the hose over the air hose tho
tigman250

sory tofu just trying to keep the black theme going it's not actually a hose it's a coily thingy for wires just put it on because it's black and flexible
tofumonkee

you could do macroline but what youve got is cool, i understand ure trying to stick to your color theme and the regular hose is silver, but i think it looks kinda bulky and wierd, get macro line you can get a kit for 10 bucks on countypaintball
tigman250

i am going to be changing the setup with the x-chamber i'll wait till then
Grunt_98c

very nice 98c. it gets a 9.2 out of 10. great paintjob. maybe think about gettin a new x-chamber or movin to hp...but it's all up to you nice job.
tigman250

x-chamber's going and a palmers is taking it's place (when i get the cash) HP is out of the question tanks too muck $$ and only one place within 60 miles that fill them and you gotta call him for like a week to get it filled gonna stick with good ol co2 for now.
