A bit more than a year ago, I found myself in position of a good condition (i.e. barely used) FN303, complete.

I immediately had the valve off to my local machine shop for cutting the laser welds and, turning me a custom, delrin insert that fills the entire volume except for the minimal amount needed for proper velocity and, ensuring a smooth rear to front air flow to the powertube.

I then immediately set about getting more magazines (I wanted to build up what I consider to be my required inventory as I know these things can be very hard to get). Once I had the magazines I needed (late march of this year), I then set about setting it up for paintball.

Tymcneer (Brass Monkey Customs) found that the machine shop took just a hair too much material from the valve and it was causing me problems. He fixed that problem and, installed a ULT trigger to give me a short, crisp pull. I also had him re-thread me a Hammerhead barrel to get rid of the fin, and adapt it for Autococker threads. I also had a custom raincover fabricated. I set it up for a remote line and, duracoated it in my custom camo pattern:

I set it up initially with an HHA Optimizer, a Leupold Laser Rangefinder, and my custom 22x Zoom GoPo camera (I intend to capture video of those targets I shoot at ranges farther than 40yds), held in place by Inception Designs' Picatinny GoPro mount and, a custom offset made by Olane over on MCB:

Did you have this at Living Legends? I thought something about your marker seemed a little strange but I didn't want to feel like a fool asking and finding out it was your T9.1 :( .

Sighting in the rangefinder was fun...

Tell me about it. Which is why I'm abandoning it :P Stay tuned for T13 MK I.

How much success did you have with capturing long range video hits? Also, does the MK I plan to abandon the sight altogether or just that particular rangefinder?

Also, wow.

I had zero success.... Operator Error allowed the gun cam to get bumped slightly downwards and I never checked it. Got loads of high zoom footage of the ground about 30ft in front of me...

Abandoning the sight, the riser and the rangefinder.

Thanks for the compliment!

Why didn't the rangefinder work? Sounds like a good idea.

60yd range max when I know I'm good to at least 80. That places me right at the limit of where regular longballers rounds are landing (when they are trying to shoot at someone standing 5yds behind me).

It seems like something that would be great for getting shots ranged right on the first try, if it had a long enough range.
