LMK what you think?

Should I go for the CO2 or keep it as HP?
Do you think that I could change/anno this one?


Opinions, Suggestions, Comments are greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone :D

Top notch selections all around, your regulator, trigger frame, ASA, body, and detents are all exactly what I would pick if I was to build myself another sniper. I was considering building almost exactly what you have here out of a near identical body (might have been the same one) when it was up for sale about 2 months ago.

As far as suggestions I'd get a leverlock for your CCM feedneck, a pair of black dye sticky 3's to replace the panel grips (those dye frames are uncomfortable without wrap around grips on the back on account of those weird ridges on the back), and lastly I'd replace the bottomline with a CP Direct mount on/off (personal preference really). Otherwise the marker is near perfect the way it is.

thanks bruddha...

i'll have to try the stickys, got one in my extra parts, and I couldn't find an extra asa rail so I had to use the angle drop.:o.

Do as you wish but I feel the cf panels tie all the colors together to make a very pleasing package. The only reason I would change them is if I couldnt live with the feel of them.

Oh by the way, I likes it.

Thats pretty sick. But youre right, the black frame will look much better there.

What detent is that?

Beautiful! I wouldn't change a thing.

I ran a 9 oz anti-siphon'd CO2 on a Sidewinder before with decent results. Towards the end of the day when it was mostly gas, I was able to long ball pretty good.

However, the tech at my shop keeps telling me that the CO2 will ruin the o-rings. I'd rather use my 9 oz CO2 because it's light and has a higher shot capacity for the size vs HPA.

looks great!! I think it would go to the next level of beauty if the chrome parts were gone. but still very nice if you never change a thing..
well done with parts selection..

You should definitly gank the dust silver VA from your race hybrid, and run it -15 for a tighter marker.

I don't know the name of the body but it's a Kapp one. I think it could be a reflex.

verry nice all around! not to sound like an idiot, but what is the 3-way on your mech:confused: I've seen it some where, but I can't remember for the life of me where it was.

Its a Kapp Reflex. I've only seen 3 pictures of that body style, including mine, and Rainier's. Well, one more, but it was halfblocked.

mm...I love that body. I have the exact same fade style, except mine's gloss.

I will use this as an excuse to show off my own:

Thank you, I actually do not know the name of the 3-way :confused:

major Ups to Warwitch for the trade on the frame.

Andrew, I was trying to find a frame like yours but came across with the Dye frame and loving the feel of it.
