Built as a homage to my... dog (who's still alive but so awesome she deserves one in life).
Posted Image

Parts description (top to bottom & front to back):

  • Empire 2k2 feedneck
  • WGP Kaner barrel " .682" " bore (bores out at .680")
  • Scenario dreams blue laser eyes with spacers
  • ANS venturi bolt with bored out air passage to the same diameter as body air transfer hole
  • Blast hole mod
  • Gen3 LPR
  • Gen3 mini volly
  • Evil front block, drilled for alias set screw and tapped for 10/32 barbs
  • 3/32" ID barb on front block to 'noid port
  • Empire poppet with gen5 cup seal, mechanical dwell shortened to 2.7mm
  • Alias ram sleeve, barb ports tapped for 10-32 barbs
  • Belsales swivel QEV on front barb port
  • Lurker eigenram/spring
  • CP gen3 adjustable ramcap
  • 3/32" ID barb on rear port
  • Crankwalk m3 barbs on 'noid
  • Mac43 'noid
  • Azodin rock steady reg (mostly for aesthetics)
  • 2k5 frame
  • Alias trigger guard
  • Modded gen 4 trigger
  • UTB with 2200uF capacitor and original 2k2 board on/off switch
  • Olive Invert .45 grips
  • Empire mini rail
  • Dye airport non on/off ASA
  • Pure energy tank with LP shim-stack, output @ 300 PSI

I'll dial the regs in as soon as I have some paint, but in the end I expect it to work at about 200/65 PSI, get almost a case off a 68/4500 with a decent underbore, the .682" kaner (which is actually .680") should help with this, and be as smooth as my FEP quest.

Special thanks to:
  • Juit @ IOG
  • Lurker @ IOG
  • The Incubus @ IOG
  • Damon @ scenario dreams

And any and all who contributed parts for this project

Very nice man... Love to see project guns, nothing feels better then building your own marker. When I built my E98c it was just so fun..

This project was my rehab from my 'cocker addiction... wait a minute... that doesn't sound right.

In all seriousness though, owning 4 'cockers and being a store tech is a great foundation for projects like this (people come in with anything from VL and BE markers to later gen angels & shockers & stuff, I've come to despise the Tippmann Triumph line though). Getting everything wired up was the most challenging part for me, it's the 2nd time I've ever messed with solder in a marker.

Seems like a solid design, haven't had any trouble with it, I did take it apart (as I do with everything I get, even if it's new) and cleaned out some shavings the anodizing process left behind on the inside, then re-lubed with formula 44D (The Incubus' Formula), it keeps up plenty well with ~15 bps dryfiring.

I chose it over a twister torpedo reg with a delrin piston and a relief hole drilled through the adjustment screw & washer I have, 'cause it flows well with the marker's lines, it has the fitting sit lower than a torpedo (so it doesn't bump into the trigger guard all the time) and it has a swivel collar. The innards in the reg aren't that different from a later gen PE or Macdev HPR so I thought I'd give it a try. I'll let you know how well it chrono's as soon as I can get some paint, but so far so good.

It was bound to come out clean, I didn't "mill" anything but the trigger and other than re-drilling and tapping, no metal was touched on the body or ram sleeve; the frame was barely filed down to accommodate the larger barb on the front block and that was on the inside.

There wasn't really that much to mess up as far as looks.

Mine's gone through about a 2 cases worth of cycles, no abnormal wear pattern on it yet, (I know it's a bit early but I'd think something would show by now as far as the seating surface).

If I were to go with AKA regs, I'd use a 2liter+ with the LP spring and SCM internals in the stock alias LPR ( the later of which I'm looking to order next month).

That's another option, either way when It comes to aka anything you can't go rong.

I'm just a fan of the sidewinder cus it has one or 2 Orings I can't rember, supper easy to service , and I think it feels and look better, and I'm kinda a tight ass and don't want to spend the 95 $ lol.


Are you going to have it anoed or just leave it clear and black ?

The body's already the same colors as my dog, so it'll stay as is, & I think the black parts compliment the body well enough.

Oh, that, I took my sweet time (3 days, 3 hours a day) to make sure everything was at least approximately the right length, some patience gets things done right.
