exercise, weight lifting, or whatever it takes to build up some muscles so you can lift and maintain control of that mosntrous 4 lb fully loaded paintgun.

the only other thing that would help would be a smaller tank, or invest in all titanium parts....even then, im not so sure it would be any lighter than aluminum.

Not too much you can do without some serious heavy duty grinding and reducing of payload. If you want a lightweight setup for days when you feel like really moving fast check out the pistol or pump marker scene.

suck it up and learn tol live with it? oh..sorry

I got an E99 and with a 20 oz tank it's pretty heavy(even with an aluminium tank) i invested in a butt plate that goes on the back of the tank. now I can rest it on my shoulder and it takes a lot fo the weight off holding it up the whole time I'm shooting.

i hate butt plates. hold in your inner elbow above your arm, its more comfortable and might take off some weight

Well you could get a stiffie barrel there 53 grams witch will take some weight off you gun. Keep your 20 ounce for target shooting but see if a 9 ounce will last you a whole game cause if it will you can take off weight there. Also you can ditch the site rail and the beaver tail that should take off a little bit. Also check you PM's im gonna send you a site that sell this thing called "The Blue Bolt" it weights just under 15 grams. They are also making a lot of stuff out of carbon fiber it is a very light weight matteral used on some N2 tanks. There might be like carbon fiber feedneck and stuff like that which will take weight off you gun. If you get all of that and your gun is still heavy I would hit up some weights.

You can buy a remote so the tank weight will be on your legs and back. Or you can go ghetto/custom and take off weight from your gun. Once my friends done i'll post pics of wut he did to his Victor. He took off about 1-2 lbs already, still un-finished. You should weight lift and hold your gun more so you can get use to it. Or you can buy a 9 oz insted of having a 20 oz.

Sell it and buy a real marker like an icd bushy ;). Heh jk, but like everyone else said, just use a 9oz. But i wouldn't really worry about weight, it won't make a huge difference, things like a better reg, higher flow bolt, esp 3.0 (think thats the trigger frame ;) ) and all of the common upgrades will yield better results ;). Good luck.

stiffi
new battery (1 might be lighter, dunno)
derlin bolt
titanium striker
get rid of ur 20oz co2
Apart from the 20oz, none of these things will make a noticable difference in weight. Your typical 200round paint loadout weighs much more thus varying more.

Wow thanks for the numerous replies, i think i will get the Blue bolt, and also get rid of my beaver tail, then maybe get a nitro tank. The tank makes the weight i think and get a drop forward to spread the weight evenly? what do you think

running wit it at full speed it becomes heavy, like i dont know i have the impression it is really heavy sometimes, and i do work out. ITs just compared to some guns it just seems heavier and it gets on my nerve. But yeah its not that heavy! its probly like 8 lbs or something
