I had a great idea when the first strike rounds first came out. Never really acted upon it til I tried out the "round". Milling would be necessary of course(to let the round fit inside the feedneck/body of the gun). Once that is done, the drop of the round doesn't fall perfectly flat. My idea was 10 round vertical style polymer tubes. Also a Spring with a disk attached to it; that would apply pressure to the round. I have sources that can make a couple of these for prototypes. Let me know if you guys have similar ideas. I can make the polymer happen.

Thanks

Same here. On my Phantom I'd remove the barrel, pop one in and shoot.
On my Superbolt you just twist the bolt and pull it out to remove it, so I loaded FS rounds in from the back.

I've shot about 40 that way, and scored some unbelievably long-ranged kills.

As expensive as they are, I'd prefer to continue to load them one-at-a-time than modify the gun.

This is my idea for loading first strike rounds into my phantom.

Posted Image

I would remove the pump return spring, and I could run normal paintballs. but if I occasionally needed a first strike round, I could just hold the pump back and pop a first strike round into the right side breach. my only problem is, I can't find anyone to properly mill the hole. Posted Image

that is just terrible :( he destroyed a tiberius gun just to shoot the round out of his phantom.. :(

I dont know why no one just takes a cheap barrel mill out the side of it where they want to load the first strike rounds. then have a sleeve that slides on the barrel where you can move it like a pump handle to open and close the hole... could work.. hey i could do that at work tommorow..

It was actually a Veritas SA-8

So how do you plan on sealing that to be airtight? And what about the fact that you now have a big oval-shaped hole in the inner diameter of your barrel where the forces on the paintball are the strongest?

Are these rounds any longer than regular paintball rounds or do they just have fins instead of a rounded back? In other words would these work in my pgp as is or would I have to lenghten the feed hole just a bit?

I've shot them out of my PGP the same way I shoot them out of my Superbolt- by removing the bolt and loading them in from the back.
If you're keen to use the hacksaw/torch and dremel you could do what Cockerpunk did and make a dedicated single-shot pistol.

I think a rifle would be a better format for FS rounds instead of a pistol, true?

Maybe...

It depends on how strong your arms are to hold a PGP on the the target steady enough to make the shots.

Keep in mind that a paintgun with FS rounds still has less range and accuracy than a real steel pistol, and people shoot those accurately all the time.

I've got a sight rail I can slide on my PGP when I need to, and I've made a number of across-the-field kills with it, WITHOUT FS rounds.

I've got a screw-on stock too, but that's a different story...
http://img174.images...ithstock0rh.jpg

When people make all these plans to make dedicate FS guns it makes me wonder if they've ever actually used FS rounds in a game. I've gotten to where I carry a tube or two of FS rounds with me no matter what pump I'm using. It's always nice to have the option of loading one to take that special shot. There's no real need to do any modification if all you're taking is one or two shots every 10 minutes or so.
