Proto Upgrades

Alllllright so I traded in my phenom for a 2011 proto rail. I got to play with it saturday and i couldnt be happier. makes me wonder why i ever even bought a tippmann..anyways. Being the material upgrade fanatic that I am, I have already made a list of upgrades for my rail I want. Since this is my first time with a tournament gun I want to know in what order I should get these. Keep in mind, I already have a pair of I4s and a nice tank.

Alright so the list of upgrades i want are as follows:


Dangerous Power Clamping Feedneck - Dust Black

Techt 2011 Proto Rail Bolt & Techt Reflex Rail Bolt

Custom Products CP PMR Ultralite Rake Trigger - Dust Black

Dye UL Airport On/Off ASA - Dust Black

Now, I know that is a crazy expensive ASA, however, I really dont like the macroline coming out the side of the ASA. That dye one is one of the only i can find that allows the macroline to come straight out the front of it.

So, please let me know in what order you would buy these upgrades, if at all. Thanks

First off, don't waste your time with that bolt. The stock bolt works beautifully, put the money towards a 68/4500 tank so you won't run out of air in the middle of a game.

Bob Long makes quarter turn ASA's that go out the front, they're all over ANSgear

I forgot to mention before you buy an ASA, buy a good barrel. The stock Rail barrel is pathetic, get yourself a one piece CP barrel if you're on a budget. ASA's are completely for convenience, a bad barrel will ruin your day however.

feedneck and ASA first but probably not the dye asa, im a fan of CPs but have nothing against BLs, then the trigger only if you dont like the stock one then a barrel kit, Id put the bolt last on the list

1. Clamping feedneck
2. ASA

(shouldn't buy)
3. Trigger
4. Bolt

The stock trigger is so good already that the only reason you should replace it is if you want a different shape trigger. But that rake trigger is exactly the same, all you're doing is spending 30 bucks for your trigger to be painted black...

And that bolt is a waste of money. I'm sorry, but DYE Precision does not spend thousands and thousands on R&D each year for people to go swap out for a bolt that maybe performs minisculy better.

I'd be shocked if it does. It's still a spool valve bolt, which will always be not the best for efficiency. All TechT claims that bolt does is increase accuracy (a joke), decrease the noise, and decrease kick. However, the Rail is already very very quiet, and does not kick much at all. If there is room for improvement, it's not $70 worth of improvement, and NOT having the upgrade won't negatively affect your playing in any way.

Exactly. Paintball is an extremely expensive sport, best to make every dollar count.

I love it, for the price. It's not the same as everyone else, it's nice feeling, it's incredibly light, and it's a very unique design with the clapper-actuated valve.

In terms of a clamping feedneck will this one fit on the Rail? I'm assuming it will since its Dye, but just to make sure...

Yes. What you want to do loosen the tightener on the stock feedneck until it comes off, put a hopper in, and then pull the collar off. There should still be what looks like a ring of tabs that stays on the gun, you're just removing the collar. You put the hopper in so you don't bend in or break any of the tabs.
