Thread: Armada X

  1. #1

    Armada X

    I was contacted by AO member Bunny shortly after the reveal of the Armada Prime to design and cut up a one of a kind X-mag.

    The following pictures showcase the end result of his project. Enjoy!














    The marker is one of a kind and features Bob Long accessories (good choice Rob). It started life as a Euro X-Mag slug body. The barrel back is freak bored.

    It was an absolute pleasure working with Rob, professional attitude and composure throughout the entirety of the project and super easy to work with. I hope that the paintball community enjoys drooling over this as much as we both have. If you want to see this marker in person you can likely catch a glimpse of it at LL7 this year.

    - Anodizing was done by Caustic Customs @ www.facebook.com/CausticCustoms Thank you Stephen for another amazing anodizing job!

    - Photographs were taken by Ben Johnson @ www.benjohnsonphotography.com Thank you Ben for another fantastic set of photographs!

    *I will update this thread with other pictures/links as needed at a later date

    that thing does look good. was the warp breach milled on the right side but not on the left?

    the back of the body looks alot like an bob long insight.

    The battery pack milling is rather coservative due mostly to lack of material

    And the warp breech was milled only on one side because removing the feed tube is a pain and I was running short on time

    My primary focus was the body and vertical breech as that is what I was initially focused on when first contacted

    ElPanda, thanks for posting this up. I do apologize for the influx of PMs you are about to get. It was pretty incredible seeing what you did to a piece of hunk of aluminum. This project was one of my favorites that I have done so far. It really shows exactly what the Xmag platform could have become. I think it also shows that even after that many years later we can still produce amazing parts based on the ideas of AGD/AGDE. This gun is definately one of the gems in my collection. I can't wait to show it off at Living Legends this year.

    By the way, this is what it looked like at the start.....

    I will take that as a compliment though I felt like I could give you a run for your money. I did go a little bit crazy this past year so I may lay low for a while

    Bite me Panda and you too Bunny. Such beautiful work...Just bite me!
    I have ideas but lack the artistry and machinery to turn them into reality. And you guy's just crank out art.
    I turned a concept fore grip into scrap Alum. today and then have to look at this.
