I know the hopper assembly is kinda ugly, but it works, its comfortable, and I can get in right over the top with my mask on

im gunna say 7/10 based soly on looks, the hopper is what i noticed as well, im not really sure as to why you would want a pistol attached at an already heavy marker except for people to have something else to look at but w/e i think a paintjob may be in order next, the dull black just doesnt do it for me at least

I like that setup....I'll give it a 7/10 too....

on that stock, where can I find one? and if using that, does it have a selectable firing rate? if not how hard would it be to add it?

check Identity Crisis Paintball, and its not really a stock... the receiver is all the way back. you remove a pin on the buttplate and you gain access to the internals. As for select fire, theres no switch if thats what you're asking. It comes with an APE rampage board tho. Being a woodsballer I keep it on 3-shot the whole time so I don't know much else. I've made a shroud so it flows better and I also removed the mag pouch (no need, it's been a few months and never had a break) and I have a red dot and sight raiser now

I call it a stock because the receiver moves back more on a bullpup design if comparing to regular firearms, which, would make it easy to keep a 16-20" barrel nice and manageable and not lose any maneuverability.... two thumbs up from me!

I'm looking at it and liking it, I was commenting that with a 16" barrel it'd keep length down, only ONE thing that bugs me....I'm planning on ditching the stock trigger/grip and going to the X7's selectable fire mode trigger assembly, and I can't put that thumb selector switch on the B5 without hacking it up I don't think.....(and for $300+ I'm not hacking it up, at all...lol)
