i used this plumbing foam stuff idk what it is called but it works(lol) for the barrel i used a 3/4 CPVC pipe fits paintballs perfectly and i put a cut metal broom stick it was hollow and slid over the pipe snug so the barrel does not bend. :D

Nice gun minus the tape, did you block off your stock, otherwise the huge chamber is overkill.

yea it works well it is blocked off
the chamber and metal exobarrel are really heavy so i filled my stock with sand to level out and it works beautifully

This is a good gun, but why did you settle for a ball valve?!
I'm sorry for being such a Nazi, but this thing would be awesome(r) if you just bought a better valve... And Maybe in the future you could spring load it.

Nonetheless, good job!

wouldn't filling the stock with sand make it heavier?
anyway, nice gun with the camo designs!
Considered doing away with the tape?

Meh. Tape, dead space, ballvalve..

Though hell that camo job makes up for it very nicely. A barrel sealing tee, and some clean up on the tape would just set it off excellently. The scope is a nice addition as well.

What pressures do you use? Good work, especially on the camo.

I shoot it around 100-120 psi.
yes the sand made it heavier but if i didnt my gun would be flimsy it was REALLY front heavy

Very nice camo.

Though I have to say it must be a pain to try and fire this thing with that ball valve. (Are you a lefty?)

I would just throw a spring on it and work a mechanical trigger up to the taped up section that looks like it's a handle.

In the third picture, it looks as if your scope is bent. Could this be from how you mounted it with tape on each end?

i didnt mount it with tape it is mounted with brackets used to keep conduit to walls
i am a right but it is compfortable holding the handle with my right and firing with my left

thanks
it was easy to make camo like that do a green base all over layer leaves on it and go over with black then take the leaves off

i really love this gun

I really like the shape and layout of the gun as well as the camo. If something could be done about the tape and ball valve it would be leaps better however.
