    cfos00 2.0 Collection

    Hey,

    Here's what I'm considering my permanent line up. Nothing is going to be leaving, and I don't plan on adding much either. Each one has a little bit of a backstory, and a lot have some custom work. Here's what I have, where it came from, along with any custom stuff along with who did said custom stuff.

    Clamshell Uprising Twister




    My spacegun. This is another one that I had a while ago, sent into the wild, and brought back home. It's a clammy project that I tossed an Uprising frame on, put a heavily modded critical spyder trigger into (my own work), and then gave it a nice front end. It also just got a jam bolt tossed onto it (not pictured) and a sidewinder. Nicely chrono'ed in at 280, it should be good to go. Just ano'ed from Annoworkz, with dust black with a gloss black splash. Spacegun.

    BC2 (Brass Cocker v2)





    I've known Ty now for a few years, and he's worked on several projects for me. Here's the first project Ty did for me, and easily the most known project that he's done for me. While I call it the ePGP, at this point it's not really a PGP. When it came to Ty, the body was a front block converted PGP using a cart valve that didn't quite work right, a detent that had been placed incorrectly causing chops, and a bore size that was the proverbial hot-dog-in-a-hallway. She was your typical hot girl that's completely screw up in the head. She looked great, but ultimately fully knew she would crush my balls whenever the opportunity presented itself. She chopped without fail. Here she was:



    In the end, we determined that she was ultimately pretty useless without a major overhaul. Ty created a new body for me with an internal detent and lower tube to fit a MQ2, slightly milled down the front block, created a new back block, made an internal frame tube to allow me to use all three grip screws, milled down the MQ2 spacer, cut down the cocking rod (it's there to prevent torque-ing), cut down the pump rod, made a nice open face bolt bolt, and, for good, measure, ported the .678 barrel. It was a significant amount of work, but it did create a little paint-flinging monster. Here it is naked:





    Here it is now.



    I also recently added the beavertail and the Eclipse cocking rod. Basically, it's fully decked out with the same stuff that you'd get on a DC2, along with a MQ2. And it definitely sees the field.

    Reflex Twister Lite with Knockout Milling










    This one has been a long time coming, and has a whole heck of a lot of custom work done. This one started because I sold off a marker that I actually loved. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't have. It was gorgeous, platinum and purple, with an Uprising Frame, Slider, and Pump kit. Here that marker was:



    So, naturally, I decided to fix the problem, and recreate it with something that's really my style, a Reflex Kit. This whole project started off as a vert feed Twister Lite that was missing it's front block. However that missing front block wasn't a problem, as I already had an extra one, and a Reflex kit. I don't really love Twister Lites, so I decided to do something about it. I contacted Adam Cable to do his Punch-Through milling to it, and also to make it a bit more useful and give it the Ego Feedneck Mod. I also had a screw get stuck and break off in the reflex frame. With it either needing a new hole drilled for a bottom line, I decided to go another route and have the frame milled to take the POPS by Atomic Customs. While that had been getting done, I spoke with my teammate Ty McNeer about milling grips for it and a twister milling a bull barrel (his thread for doing that milling: http://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/b...0-twister.html). I also thought that we could do better than use the normal delrin reflex arm, so I made a new one out of aluminum stock. Here's how that came out, prior to getting sent to ano.



    With everything gathered, it went out to ano. I decided to try another ano shop, and went with South River Metal Finishing. It's a dust platinum with gloss purple highlights, with the tricky part being the barrel tips. He spent a huge amount of time with polishing, and really did a great job on it. The two tone barrel came out great, as did the finishing on the reflex connector arm. I am no pro in terms of polishing, but you'd never be able to tell on that arm. Here are his pictures:




    And here it is assembled. The main reason that I'm posting up to say a sincere "Thank You" to those that helped me in the build. Those people, Ty McNeer, Adam Cable, South Run Metal Finishing, and Cameron Gunlock, really helped the project come out as nice as it did, and helped me recreate something that I never should have let go. I really appreciate you guys! Thanks again!

    TWSTR Prototype for PBE, #3








    For the past couple of years, I’ve been speaking with Ttwo, Anthony D’Ambrosio, of Boston Paintball Supply about some of the major projects that they’ve had going on, and where they had plans on going in near future. He originally reached out to me when I bought a Reflex’ed Twister Lite from him, and I ended up speaking with him for over an hour about autocockers, the disappearance of true custom label milling, and the crowd that would love to see this style of marker back on the market. His passion for the old markers, desire to see real, in-depth custom bodies (not just lazering or ‘limited-run color schemes’), and understanding of the target fanbase was obvious. He and the good people over at BPS were able to translate that energy and enthusiasm, along with recent groundswell of support for the Autococker, into a revival of their their top-of-the-line Twister Autocockers into a brand new limited run of markers, the TWSTR.

    This TWSTR is the only one in the wild, and it's had a lot of custom stuff put on it since then. It has a new cocking knob from ANs, which is a bit of tribute to where this type of marker came from. It also has custom rods and grips from pdobrove, a masceroni barrel back, and yellow dye tip. It also has a new yellow trigger shoe, along with roller sear and black ano'ed and milled trigger plate. It also has SLPS springs to lighten it. This is my go-to pump.

    TWSTR #1







    This is my F5. It was ordered within a minute or so of them going on sale, and I knew what I wanted to do with it right away. It does have the pump kit and a slide and normal front block with palmer's pnues and the AKA LPR. It is pictured here as it sits though, and that is packing a reflex kit. In order to do this, Addicted2Dunes milled me an adapter to take it down from a 2K size to Pre-2k, and I made an aluminum arm to connect the on/off and the pump arm. Along with the Reflex kit, it also packs a match ano'ed jam bolt, the longer cocking rod, and beavertail. The Thunderstuck ano was done by Arc Ano, and came out really well. If you notice, the bolts actually connect throughout the marker. Really well done, and obscenely fun to shoot.







    Video of TWSTER #1 reflex shooting. Used it all day over at Robin Hood Paintball. I didn't have it completely cranked up, as they cap you at 10 BPS there. Still shot great, and was very happy with it!
