Personally, I'd prefer an RT, but I'm a broke paintballer. Nearly all of the mods I've done have used stuff I have lying around the garage and have cost me nearly nothing to build.

I have to conserve paint like you wouldn't believe. I've got about 400 rounds left from the case I bought in January, and I blew through about half the case tuning the light hammer mod.

I'll check the link, and thanks for posting it.

Re: sniper bullpup - SVD-10 Dragunov II

Alright, so I've refinished a few rifle stocks, specifically of the Russian and German type. For refinishing stocks, I suggest using linseed oil.

Linseed oil is the traditional method of finishing rifle stocks. Linseed oil dries slow but it doesn't just cover the surface of the wood like a stain or varnish does. It slowly soaks into the woods and creates a detailed finish that will beautifully portray the grain of the wood. It's also nice when using on real firearms because it isn't entirely water proof, so if you get a dent or a scratch it's easy to "swell" the wood for repairs. Don't let that last statement discourage you though, linseed oil provides a "Water - Resistant" finish still.


See if this is something similar to what you were looking for... If not you might try looking around their site further.

Re: sniper bullpup - SVD-10 Dragunov II

how do you think the linseed oil finish would hold up to paintballing?

Re: sniper bullpup - SVD-10 Dragunov II

I think it would do just fine so long as you wiped it down after you're done playing. It really depends on what you're going for I suppose...

Slavens, beautiful mod. Love seeing actual custom work. Can't wait to see updates/video. Oh, and your avatar makes so much sense now, hahaha.

It's a home grown volumizer that's made from materials designed for 800PSI working pressure. If my regulator craps out and it dumps full CO2 tank pressure to it, I'm going to be hurting. BAD.

So I really don't want to share it, mostly because I don't want to be responsible for someone getting maimed or killed.

As soon as I can find a commercially made unit, it's coming off the marker.

Sorry to be a spoil sport, but I prefer keeping everyone's appendages attached and operational.

It's easy to get started: Next time something doesn't fit right, look right, whatever; ask yourself "exactly why isn't it right?".

Answer that question, then figure out what needs to be done to make it fit your vision of 'correct'. Once you have that, you just need to figure out how to make that change. It will largely depend on two things: do you have tools to make the changes & do you have the 'intestinal fortitude' to make the change (do you really want to take a saw and file to that new $120 part)?

Re: sniper bullpup - SVD-10 Dragunov II

new update!

I finished the stock with two applications of Minwax Cherry stain and several liberal coats of boiled linseed oil. We'll see how the finish holds up to paintballing.

I can't decide if I want to keep the camo on the gun or have the aluminum parts Deep Hard Anodized (cold anodized, milispec finish like on the M4 receivers) and parkerize the steel.

The red-dot mount is a proof-of-concept to see if it plays well or has some systemic weaknesses. So far so good. I want to compare the dimensions on the PSO/PSOP mounts and see if they'd even be feasable.

Same goes for the trigger setup. It's a pushrod that runs all the way back to the stock mechanical trigger. It needs a positive-return for full reliability, I think.

I'm working a 'pneumatic hammer' angle with a local gadget shop. We may be able to cook up a pneumatic cylinder to operate the airvalve, completely removing the hammer. It would use an electric gas valve timed via custom board. For the board, we're looking to keep it simple. Just manage the valve dwell (to get adjustable speed at low pressure) and set it up with a four way fire selector switch: Safe, Semi, 3-round burst, & full auto - all this would be done by pulsing the gas valve.

If you've followed my ultra-light hammer thread, it evolved into a full custom LPK. This beast is running a hand-made 1.8 oz delrin hammer, Techt extra-heavy drive spring and a light air valve spring. Palmer's Inline Stabilizer dialed to 500psi. We'll head lower once I get ball speed up from 240fps.

I played a five-hour run on TruePaint's indoor CQB course. Dropping the 10" of stock made it very easy to handle in close quarters, even with 20" of barrel & brake. And having 18" of barrel on tap made for very acurrate shooting at extreme ranges, 130'+.

At one point, I was engaged in a one-on-one firefight with a player behind a wall of tires. From forty feet, I dropped a round in a 4"x4" hole on the third shot and hit the guy in the butt. Forrest Gump, anyone?

And for those times when a shorter barrel is absolutely necessary, I've got a short foregrip that ends right were the foregrip meets the stock (where the foregrip wraps all the way around the barrel). This lets me fit 6-8" barrels for very tight situations like door breaching/room clearing.

Anyway, I think this setup fills the role of 'designated marksman' very well (as opposed to 'sniper'). It's capable of ranged acurracy and CQB without being cumbersome.


Pics and videos (not from the PB field, unfortunately):


video 1, overview:


Video 2, demo slow fire. Reasonably quiet, very nice red-dot position for getting behind it easily with a mask.


Video 3, rapid-fire run. Most balls drop right on target, a few stray rounds though:

That's pretty cool, slavens. Once again, props on doing a true custom job.

I'm not going to lie man, I love seeing videos of this stuff. It's great to see it sighted in.
