modernized eclipse splashed mag build thread/show off
Well I started this build mostly because: A. I didn't have a mag anymore B. I was retiring from the national, regional, and local tourney scene. C. I knew I'd still play recball and wanted something cool but not too over the top or something I would ever sell.
Bought this before the UWL Pittsburgh last year and had enough stuff to throw it together
While Tom Cole did compliment it, the reg was creeping and shooting 450 was frowned upon. So I threw it in the gear bag and it sat for several months. I had a general idea for that I wanted to do with the gun to recreate the last splash mag I had but was forced to sell.
(if anyone knows where this is at I'd really like to buy it back)
I really liked the black teflon body and the wood grips so this presented a problem without a docs twist lock to cocker adapter which just popped up for sale not to long ago. I wanted to modernize the eclipse with a shaft4 barrel and the pops ASA but keep the old school look and get some parts splashed to match.
So I picked up a shaft4 barrel, docs adapter, pops asa with rail, new valve, and a brand new in box gadget grip. Presently looking for a good anodizer to polish/match splash the parts I have.
may also get the rail ULE milled internally while the few parts are out getting anodized
Well like anything I seem to do I start out with a simple idea and it spirals out of control lol. Played with the mag at the splatter park big game, shot A LOT of people with it but noticed some things I hated about it so I ordered the following: ULE body ccm feedneck and a lukes fore grip extender long version.

I'd anno the forgrip and ASA.
Please don't anno the frame or barrel. I know why people do that, but I'm not a fan. I really like the wood, black, blue-splash contrast.
The frame is CF so i cant anodize it. I'm just going to do the barrel tip, asa rail, asa front piece, and the gadget grip.
wow! That wood grip makes that old cf frame look really classy. I didn't even recognize it.
updated the build thread, waiting on a reply from FX ano with my current updated # of parts.
