Sorry for the absence, I’ve been down in Austin Texas on a mini-vacation! I’ll kick things back off with this beautiful brass bolt action carbine built by Usurper. Like Bondcommanderbond’s gun, it seems to be based on the suppressed WW2-era Delisle Carbine.
I personally have no issues with skirting the legality of paintball “rain covers,” but Usurper has made a concerted effort to make this suppressor completely ATF legal.
1. De-soldering it would leave a massive slot in the back portion defeating the purpose of it completely.
2. With no inner casing one would have to drill porting directly into the barrel of the firearm.
This pistol by BigOldSkool of ECAP customs won the MCB Nelson Buildoff back in 2008. He built it from scratch using aluminum scrap and a minimal amount of tools. Well…almost scratchbuilt. I believe the body is harvested from an oldschool unibody gun, the valve body is from a Nelspot 007, the pierce pin is from a Tiberius magazine, and the internals are some muttly mashup of Nelspot compatible bolt/hammer valve. Impressive nonetheless!
There are several interesting design features including an integrated hi-viz fiber optic front sight, and a quick release 12 gram pocket milled into the rear of the frame. BOS did a great job one this one, despite being a self proclaimed Nelson hater.… Continue Reading
I thought this was a brilliant little hack. Cooky from x7og.net posted this parts bin Automag that he turned into a poor-mans Tac-One! I approve of killing powerfeeds whenever possible, so I love this. They’re the worst.
Cooky bought a spare BT Trracer Sight Rail from KEE Action Sports and glued it on top of the ‘Mag body. Simple and smart.
Bondcommanderbond has made a habit out of building up World War 2 inspired paintball guns. One of my favorites is this Delisle Carbine. The Delisle was a suppressed bolt action carbine built on a Lee Enfield platform. Bond used real enfield parts to really nail the look, and “rain covers” tend to work well with our subsonic paintball ammunition. When asked how well the cover works, he replied “Compared to the other pumps on the field it seemed dryer.” Not bad.
Here’s what he has to say about it:
I used an American Enfield 1914/14 stock ……purchased 3 years ago at a gun show for about 20 dollars.
