    Who else is waiting on a Meteor?

    Preordered one of the Feather bodies and I've been biding my time between a pc build and piecing together a custom autococker. Ordered it in the raw so I can have a custom anno applied. I'm excited for my first build. Found an Evo ram on ebay, still deciding on what 3 way to buy between inception and shocktech.

    I grabbed a 2000 meteor when they were first announced. Totally worth the wait, it’s one of my favoirite guns now. I would go inception on the 3 way, my past few v2 bombs were less than impressive with considerable drag and a leaky tendency. If you can find an original bomb however, jump on it! With that said just remember if you go inception their collars are threaded differently then most so you need to buy their timing rod.

    I've had a Feather and frame sitting in a box waiting in line to be completed. Need to get rid of the Shocktech FEK I have so I can pick up some raw Inception stuff and send it to anno.

    Thanks for the heads up! I grabbed one of their timing rods in my order this morning! I've been scouring the internet for a hollo point or an original bomb and haven't had any luck.

    Ooooohhhh I'm jealous. I've been foaming at the mouth to get my V2 body. Meteor finally posted a teaser on their facebook page.

    Here is the current parts list. I have everything ordered minus a roller sear and a barrel. I have a deadlywind that I usually play with, but I'd love to have a match anno'd barrel. Just don't know what to go with at this point. Haven't been barrel shopping in quite some time as the DW is my go to.

    Sounds like a solid shooter. I'm loving my feather. I swooped one up at the Atl event when they first came out.

    What are your plans for the ano?

    Thanks! Iím pumped for sure! I tried reaching out to blizzard but his inbox is slammed. I know I want either a two tone fade with a black acid wash underneath. Or a solid two tone theme with spattering versus a drizzle. I really am stuck for colors though :/ Iíve been staring at google images and forums for the last 3 days haha. Thought about going with a poll for inspiration. I want it to pop and be be unique.

    Lowkey I would love to have like a 90ís confetti recaro seat pattern on the gun but idk if someone could replicate that through anodizing.

    Just got the rest of my parts from AKA, thanks for the quick shipping, Jared! You da man.
    Now I'm just waiting on the body kit from Meteor and I'm off to an anodizer.

    I think I've got it narrowed down to ATMF, and I've got my color schemes picked out. After scouring the internet for the last few weeks, I've settled on two. A variant of a 2 color fade to black with a reverse splash, sort of like Imon1maybe6's Chris Shanks Spine purple/black fade, reverse splash autococker, :drool:. I also saw the Black/Purple Wash, Blue/Green/Red Splash finish from his 1997 P&P Supercocker, and that one really made me eyegasm. So I'm stuck between these two.

    That is one serious list of parts you got going...and that frame is unbelievably hollowed out I did the same on my Viking. Great choice on anno scheme, can't go wrong with Supercocker color combo.
