Cool The Guardian - Work in progress (spimmy)

(i typed a really long report on this thing, then accidently hit the back button, its all gone, so this is summarizing)

I started building this gun, its taken a while to get all the parts, but here it is.



As you can see, dragun t1 body, sp barrel





Like i said, i just typed up a really long post, and i explained stuff better, but ah well.

I'm using the two palmer regs, modified tboard to fit sideways above the battery, custom eclipse qev modified to fit m3 threads, delrin ram, aka lightning bolt, hybrid ap knob, hybrid high flow hoses and barbs.




it just baaaarely fits in there

When the guns done itll have some cosmetic touch ups and full detailed leak tests. right now the efficiency sucks, 2 hoppers off 2000psi 68ci

Heres a short video of it shooting a tree
and yes i know i cant shoot fast

guns definately not done, i was just really excited and wanted to give a little preview.

I just called it the Guardian, but i'd like some name suggestions. hope you enjoy!

that is a hot looking marker. But why spend all the money if you cant' shoot it fast?

I guess itis always better to have something and not need it, then to need it and not have it...Or in this case to not be able to use it...yet.

Good work man. Hope to see it when it's all cleaned up.

Did you grind the Tboard until it fit or something? Why use it instead of a "higher end" board? Space issues?

thanks a lot. i didnt spend it all to shoot fast, spyders can shoot that fast. i just wanted to build a nice gun as a project and be able to shoot a gun that i made.

Yes the t-board was grinded down and even cut off where the power adn trigger switches were. since i got rid of those, i had to follow the path on the board and solder wires closer toward the center of the board. the reason i did this was b/c i already had a tboard (b/c i originally had a zip kit but didnt have any luck getting it to work - dead solenoids) and didnt want to spend more. for a few days i was trying to fit the tboard in the clammy like it was. a tried getting advice from a few of the well known modders, and one said to put the board in with the switches sticking out the back, and the noid at the top turned sideways. but that was a little crammed and wasnt too great for hose routing. the tboard wasnt too hard to shrink. the frame had to be dremeled out like crazy, even digging into the walls just a tad.

plus its unique, which is good to me as long as unique doesnt really sacrifice performance

Nice job, except you looked depressed in the video

What was up with the first shot you took?

its got a ways to go from being finished, but i'll definately update this. next time you see it the body will be blue/black fade and there'll be some hybrid grips. and a brand new specialized bike grip.

someone asked, its not a sear tripper, its basically a near fully upped intimidator.

not sure with the first shot, i think they call that fsdo(first shot drop off). probly due to air leaking somewhere. it does that when you fire after waiting a few minutes
i wasnt depressed. im just soooo calm and laid back i appear that way. next video i'll be cheesin!!
