I got my hands on a OLD Virtual Machine 68 from Benjamin Sheridan.
As seen in this picture below.
Now I want to custom mod this, Replace the Hand grips, Housing will get something overlapping it, trigger rebuild etc.
However as you can see these guns have a front bottle asa. Now I want the bottle to be at the back like the regular guns we have these days.
My idea was by doing a Rebuild of the hand grips from a wood type, and intergrate a current age asa into it.
Having the Line go up through the wooden handgrip, over the hand grips into the front of the gun.
Now I was wondering If I could use any regulator for that, or if I need to find any of the rare adaptor kits for it.

Then the Trigger hand guard is also going to be removed and ill make a custom handle for there to grab on to as well. And then of course a new Barrel, auto cocker(i need a barrel thread adjuster from lapco for this) or something or whatever I can find. As well as a Body mod that I will just screw over the current body.
Not sure on that yet, its still in design and thinking phases haha
All I know Is, the Macro line stuff and the color scheme I am going to use (Bronze / Copper colors)

Love it to death. Custom wood furniture and it runs a back bottle/ remote line. Tape was on there just because, I always ask for some extra armband tape so I can put it on the stock.
My local field owner has a collection and was showing me his custom one. It was anodized in a pinstripe style with an aluminum M4 stock anodized in the same fashion, I said mine was pretty unique and I brought it in, and his jaw dropped. VM's are really fun, Mine is really the only marker I have that has a noticeable recoil, and it belches frost after like 10 shots in rapid succession.
