Anyone who pays attention to my builds will remember this.

The original Beast sniper conversion was awesome, and still in use today. That gun, however was my friend's, so I don't get to use it anymore. To remedy this, I completed the logical step, and built another. This gun works on the same basic principle, but is in reality a whole different animal.

This one has a lot more upgrades, better balance, cleaner lines, and generally more whoop-ass packed into a sleeker and sexier package.

What follows is a set of instructions and a discussion of this gun and others like it.

Step 1: What's New, Pussycat?

Here is a quick list of the features, comparing the V1 and the V2.

Version 1:
  •     Based on a Tippman 98 Custom paintball marker
  •     22 inch Angel Custom tight-bore barrel
  •     Drain-cock loading valve
  •     Open breech
  •     Home-built stock
  •     Home-built under barrel canister  rack
  •     Modification of gun body required
  •     No hop-up
  •     Open-backed Airsoft barrel

Version 2:
  •     Based on a Spyder MR1 paintball marker
  •     20 inch stock tubing barrel
  •     Rotating external bolt loading system
  •     Vented breech
  •     Modified Spyder stock
  •     Screw-in canister attachment
  •     No gun body modification, only removing a few parts
  •     Hop-Up
  •     Gas-direction system in the back of the Airsoft barrel
At some point I will retrofit the V1 with some of these upgrades to improve it's slightly lacking performance.
