My modded X7 setups

Hello everyone, this is my first post on these forums.

I got a couple of home made kits that I've made at home, so I thought that I'd post the pics and whats on/in my X7, and you guys can just rate them as a collective whole.

Performance Mods:
JCS Redhot power tube and front bolt
Wargear cyclone squishy paddles
Polished Internals
Rap4 Gen2 Regulator
Response Trigger (currently tuned to 12bps, I don't care to shoot anymore than that).

The External Mods:
All the pictured mods are made with durable yet lightweight plastics, except for the tippmann airthru stock on the g3.

X7 HK G3:

With 14" barrel. Total weight, around 7 pounds (mostly due to the airthru stock)

X7 Sig552:

With 9" barrel. Total weight, around 6 pounds.
-edit-
Yeah,.. I know the rear sight is backwards

X7 Dragunov Sniper Rifle:

With 20" barrel. (for the guys that like long barrels) Total weight, around 6 pounds.

X7 G36c:

With 10" Barrel. Total weight, around 5.5 pounds

X7 MG36:

With 16" Opsgear barrel. Total weight, around 6.5-7 pounds (including betamag)

-------------------
That's all I'll post. I figured that in there I make the guys who like long barrels happy with the dragunov, all the way to making the guys who like real compact markers happy with the sig552.

I look forward to your responses, as this was all alot of work.
Remember, we're rating the look/appearance/functionality of the marker setups, not wether you like the x7 itself as a marker or not

LOL, after reading the last thread where someone posted their x7, and seeing that they got the same "rating" as I just got, I think that's the closest that anyone who owns one of these markers will ever come to a compliment from'ya

Hence:

It's the same as if someone were to post a "rate my marker" thread of their modded ION, and I would respond to their post with,... "I don't like ion's, they are overpriced (insert marker x), you spent to much on yours". That wouldn't really be a rating of their pictured marker or it's posted specs.


-edit-
Also, because I run a remote line, the markers actually wiegh about the same as my friends TM7 with his hpa tank on his asa. They look bulkier and heavier than they really are, which is a plus.

thanks dbone, I pretty much go to ebay, buy the absolute cheapest airsoft gun I can find of whatever kit I want to make, and then with a dremmel and some 2 part epoxy, figure out a way to make the parts (after chopping up the airsoft gun) attach onto the x7 the same was as the regular tippmann released mods. The g36c foregrip, stock, magazine, and carrying handle came off of the same 15 dollar from ebay airsoft gun. It's not that hard, and really inexpensive compared to how much people pay for opsgear kits for their a5's. The opsgear g36c kit for the a5 costs 350 I think it is. The entire g36c mod that I did for the x7 cost probably about 100 dollars all together.

I love them all! 10/10 for the mods. Did you make the double drum yourself, and does it do anything?
Also how do you get the clips to have the bullets in them?

Thanks Iare.
The visible bullet mag on the sig552 is a modded airsoft g36 bullet magazine. They cost around 15 dollars on airsoft sights, though you can find them for around 5 bucks on ebay if you get lucky.

There's a good walkthrough posted over on the x7og.net on how to do it. Here's a link to the latest version someone did:

Another g36 a5 to x7 mag mod - SECURE FIT!!!

And here's a link to what I meant you could find on ebay. This isn't a g36 bullet mag, but it's an airsoft Sig magazine, they are a little bit shorter than the g36 ones, but you can take a look at them at least so you can see what I mean.

I hate milsim markers, but very well done. Except, as someone else said, the cammo hopper on the Dragunov looks out of place...it actually would fit more with the marker if you had it normal. Nevertheless, 10/10 for aesthetics, and of course 0/10 for performance since they're still Tippmanns underneath.

I'll give you 8/10 because you have gone for addons and not performance

1 you still have the response and no E
2 your barrel choice comes down to looks no hammer or freak in sight to be the best
3 your internal upgardes are lacking so over 13 you will never see

Wow I haven't been back here in a while, and am really sorry for missing this question 4574, sorry about that. And also as a byproduct of your post, thanks for bringing it to my attention that I needed to address something on my website

The majority of all of the pictured mods that I have done in the pics and on the site, are plastic prototypes. Regular ol' mods that I've done myself by hand with just a dremmel and some epoxy and chopping up airsoft parts. Then I get together with a really great engineer that I met, and he helps me get them made into production quality pieces. The only truly production part that I have for the x7 at the moment is my G3 "heavy mag". The original mod was done with plastic parts, but now, it's a professionally made Magazine/Magwell combo that is CnC Machined from a single solid block of aircraft grade aluminum. (Finally got them onto rockstartactical.com, woot!)

So though I have the parts listed as being constructed of aluminum on the website, with the exception of the G3 magazine, all of the parts and kits on the site also have "IN DEVELOPMENT" listed on them also. They will eventually be made out of aluminum, or a mix of aluminum and plastic polymers depending on the parts, as soon as I can afford to get them made.

The next part that'll be released is the X7 SCAR stock, hopefully within a month to a month and a half. The stock is a mix of plastic and aluminum, and the front portion of it will be machined from aluminum also. My hopes are that there will be enough interest in the scar stock that I can then afford to get the sig552 kit made.

Sorry for the confusion on the site.

And also, obladeo

I thank you for your honest response, and am gratefull for it.
But I respectfully feel that those aren't very valid points. Though I do respect your opinion, I will state my thoughts on why I have the upgrades that I have.

1. "You still have the response, and no E"
Different playstyles. When an M16 assault rifle fires around 14 rounds per second on full auto.... do you REALLY need to fire 25+bps? It's unnecessary. You can keep someone pinned down with suppressive fire just as well with 10-15bps as you can with 30bps,... and your paint lasts twice as long. Plus I'm not sure if you're aware or not, but there are TONS of issues with the tippmann e-grip for the x7. Selinoids breaking off, the magnets not working properly, people constantly having to return e-grips to tippmann because they are always breaking. RT is just as valid of a trigger system as an E-Grip, even more-so depending on a persons play style.


2. "your barrel choice comes down to looks no hammer or freak in sight to be the best"
Last I checked, Palmers Brass were good barrels, and so were Lapco Bigshots and JJ's. The only benefit of barrel kits is being able to specifically make sure that you have a proper paint-barrel bore match. Which is a great benefit when having to use field paint. However, every field out here in So. Cal. is "bring your own paint". Meaning I don't have to ever worry about that because I can always use the brands of paint that are perfect fits for my different barrels.

Other than the junky trinity barrel that was in the g36c picture (seriously,.... what short cqb barrels are going to be very accurate at distance anyways) it has since been replaced by a 9" Palmers Brass. And unless hammerhead and freak start making 20" barrels for use with the dragunov, the J&J is the best that can be used with that one.

Palmers Brass barrels are used in the G3, M4SIR, MG36 (now), SCAR, Sig552, and SL8. Can't tell me that palmers brass arent good barrels. Especially when matching paint/barrel isnt an issue.

3. your internal upgardes are lacking so over 13 you will never see.
HUH? Every single component of my x7 is upgraded with the exception of my qeph and cyclone rod (not necessary mods). Aftermarket front bolt, powertube, secondary regulator, paddles, internals that are mirror polished,... the only thing left to upgrade is the cyclone internals, which aren't necessary to upgrade other than the squishy's. I don't even need to get an aftermarket ratchet, because of my axle being modded, I'm still using my stock ratchet after 2 years with no problems.

Heh.... seriously.
Velocity-wise due to the upgrades and the secondary regulator my velocity holds pretty much around +/- 7fps per shot, which is pretty good for a tippy if I must say so

Thought it'd look better with them holding them than me.
