New Custom Pro A.C.T.

Just got back into paintball after a layoff of 5yrs or so. I bought a new custom pro because of the easy upgradability and i wanted something durable. My old gun was a Spyder Compact 2000. I will be buying a j+j ceramic barrel for it and a vertical expansion chamber kit. I will be playing indoors in the winter and at fields and in the woods in the summer.

So how does the cyclone feed system work, is it the best system for a tippman or just get a good hopper?

Since you have a custom pro I would get a normal electric hopper. That way if you ever need to you can strap it onto any other marker out there.

Thats what I was intending, just wasnt sure how good the cyclone system was. So any thoughts on a expansion chamber for this gun? just go with the tippmann one or is there a better one out there. I will be upgrading parts as i go and that is one i think will be next after a new barrel.

Ah.

Then the Cyclone system does what it's supposed to. It'll stop when your CO2 or air starts to get low, but that's to be expected.

The tippmann expansion chamber kit will have everything needed, air line included. A chamber from another company might work better, but it might not. If you do go this route you'll want the vertical adaptor andsome new air line, probably shorter than the stock one. Although it could be used as long as it will bend into the new location.

I guess i will be experimenting with the tippmann shortly. I had to order it from one of the local paintball shops and it should be in this wen or thurs, i would rather give them my business then a big retailer. My previous experience was with spyders so the tippmann is new to me, i just wanted a durable gun for woods and on the fields and indoors, I thought a e gun like the $200 ion would not be as durable and I have never messed with the electric guns before. Any thoughts on diablo paint the shop has white fill for $30 a case and it seems indoors like you to use the white fill for BYOP days.

P.S. Torch I just noticed you were from bentleyville pa is that the one down off 70 by little washington??

You'll want to go with the Tippman Expansion chamber, If you use tippmann up grades on a new gun, then the warrentiy of the gun is still good, but if you us another companys parts then the warrenity is voided.

I ran with Custom Pro w/ Co2, Cyclone and R/T. I found that I didn't need an expansion chamber, but then again, I don't play in the winter.

I played in this past spring with my 98, and it was shoting liquid CO2 all the time. It was only about 40 degrees out if I remeber correctly, thats why I bought an expansion chamber for mine.

Well I picked up the gun today along with a 20oz CO2 tank with a smartparts shut off valve and a antisyphon tube. I like the gun alot but I am kinda not impressed with the trigger its like a plastic material. does anyone know who sells a drop in metal trigger only, i will be upgrading to a egrip or response sometime in the spring so should i just wait and do it then?

Only metal trigger I can think of is the BSI stick trigger. It's an aluminum double finger trigger (Flat) and a new trigger guard.

I think there is another company as well that makes a different design.
