View Full Version : Karni Sniper

03-28-2008, 06:48 AM
Hey guys,

I have a Karni that I would like to convert into a Sniper. I've never worked with a marker like this and converting it. I have so far piled up a Slide frame and internals for that, a 2000+ Premium Sniper Mini Kit. I am just wondering what else I need if anything.

Thanks for the help and if anyone is interested in the E frame kit LMK.

you're gonna have to get your karni mini'd for that kit..WWA im guessing right?

How much were you lookin for all the e stuff?

So, the mini kit I ordered won't just bolt up to it?

Not sure how much for the front/grip frame. Make an offer/trade

I would like to offer you somethin ..money isn't good right now...bills and vaca:eek:

Yeah the mini kit won't bolt right up you have to get the gun mini'd ...I dunno if it be cheaper to get that done or sell the kit and just get a regular pump kit. ...all up to you

sell that karni and buy a karni pump, everything will be done for you and you might come out ahead if you find a used karni pump.

firstcallpaintball.com sell pump kits for Karnivors as well ... You should also be able to slap on a CCM kit (so I was told) and you would have to drill & tap a hole under the body for a mini asa vertical air adapter.

standard pump kit.
tap bottom front of body for a mini vert asa.

Or talk to hvacman250. He was doing some really cool Karni conversions that use a CCM pump and the stock Karnivore front block.

i believe i have seen karni pump kits made by WGP. comes w/ front block, dont have to drill or chop the body

Haven't seen those but even if they're not being sold by WGP they're probably available if you ask around and are patient since I've seen a few of the mid-block karni pumps with nicer pump kits and mini-cocker ASAs.
I just bought one of the WGP mid-blocked Karnis tonight. I've always wanted a Karni but after getting my E2'd o3m I just couldn't justify the cost. I might switch the parts around though if I can lay my handles on a regular karni front block then I'd have an E2'd mid-block karni and a pump o3m.

Yeah check with him. I had a spare front block that was blue. Had him mill it and anno it black. I unless youplan on selling the pneus and elctronic stuff I would just pick up an extra front block and have him mill and anno it.

I dont have a pump kit for mine yet as I am waiting on the return of my eclipse sniper. But I can get a picture of the front block if you want me too.

the miniing isnt that hard. 9/16-24 frontblock tap off ebay for 5 bucks then w/ a bandsaw and a file and square i made it look pretty good.

id keep your mini kit. if you dont want to go the Do It Yourself route. KPCS told me it would only be $20 to mini the body.

For me though I like the reverse 15 degree asa. My buddy has one that has been mini'ed and has the mini ccm pump kit. I dont like it anywhere near what I like mine.

I am building a Karni Sniper based off of a full Karni body with the WGP Karni pump kit off of one of the mid-blocked Karnis (I made an Eclipse E2 MQ monster out of the mid-blocked body). I am planning on having a WWA longslide Econ pump bored out to 1/2 to fit on the stock WGP guide. I put my CCM 86 slider frame on it, and boy is it sexy!
