The gun was bought in 1992, and has only had one
minor leak in all that time. As it sits here in the shot, it is equipped with
a Tasco 3-9 power scope, ghille'd Indian Springs hopper, Harris Bipod, and a
28 inch barrel.
Why a 28 inch barrel? I decided to test a theory.
I wanted to see if I could build an extension that would give the ball the
same back spin as a Tippmann Flatline. To do this I took a simple piece of PVC
pipe, attached it to the end of a 18 inch barrel bought from Tippmann, and
angled it slightly downward. Long story short, it didn't work. Balls were
breaking all over in it and I couldn't clean them out.
The moral of the story is don't be afraid to try
something out. If you get an idea, run with it. You never know when the next
big thing is going to be thought up by someone who said to themselves "There's
got to be a better way."
