Arrow Putting more BRAVO in my Tippmann Alpha Black

Hey ppls!
I recently purchased a Tippmann Bravo One and im very happy with accuracy and velocity, i was just hoping someone had some suggestions as to what i can do (Paint, replace, add, subtract) to this Weapon of Mass Destruction to make it look meaner and more unique..

I was thinking a Red-Dot scope, but im not sure if its practical(does it actually work?). What would be is one of those shroud handles, but im not sure if its possible? I was also entertaining the idea of only painting the shroud, handle and stock, but im not too clued up as to how to paint plastic or what will go well with black (green, brown, purple).

Help mense eks in 'n pinarrie!!
Any and all suggestions are SOOOOOOPAH welcome!
cheers~

Hi there... congrats on the purchase:wiggle:

first off, paintball markers/guns are only shot at a max. velocity of 300 feet per second during gameplay... I hope you are not shooting your marker at a higher velocity than that.

A red-dot sight is, well, a sight and therefore is non-zooming... the benefit of having such a sight is that you do not have to line up your iron-sights when shooting at an OPFOR... and it is therefore a lot faster to bring your gun to bear and shoot with first shot accuracy:serendre:

One upgrade I would do is get a sealed bolt( or bolt cover) so that dirt does not go directly into your markers internals...

Lol002 xD

Well the first thing i did with the marker was test velocity (a friend had one of those velocity meters, sumone will soon remind me what you call it). And it was doing 290 Fps 3 balls out of 5. Thanx for the tip on the bolt cover! Are red-dot sights expensive though? Would i have trouble aiming with a mask on?

Scroll a little further down and you will see them.

I Personally find that the cheapest one ( NCStar Basic Red Dot Sight ) is the best as it gives you the second best line of site. And i find that is a bit more strong than the most expensive one. And if it breaks, you can always get a second one...

The NCStar 30mm Red Dot Sight is good as it is the strongest of all and can take hits, with less of a chance of breaking. BUT you have a the worst line on site of all

The NCStar D4B Red Dot Sight is teh best, with the best line of site, dot styles etc, but i think that it will not last after a few hits.

See is someone that has experienced them says anything...

Default Bravo One

Yo Boet
Concrats on your new marker.Playing wit a Bravo One Tactical myself.Excelent entry level marker,had no problems with it so far.Sorry to dissapoint you,but you can only upgrade your Bravo One to a Bravo One Tactical,whice is is going to cost you about R450.Just there is no further upgrades to it,than the M16 look.
You can however replace your barrel.The 98's barrel fits the bravo.Also you can not put a sight on it,because of the perminent carry handle.
This is still a sweet marker.

You can mount a scope on it by drilling a hole and mounting a certain rail on the top.PBA can do the mod for you.The ACOG scope look nice on the Bravo one.Tippmann is also in the process of bringing out a AK 47 version

the nice thing about red dots is you don't have to close one eye to see that is why the also call it a reflex sight you can shoot with both eyes open i love my red dot but i'm more of a sniper then an assault guy if been playing PB sniper for along time now and i will always have a red dot i was thinking of getting me a bravo one aswell but first i will have a look at the upgrades and if the upgrades does not fit if i can make it fit

Hmm perhaps you could consider having a look at using a good spell-checker aswell to help with your punctuation difficulties. I'm almost out of breath after reading your sentence.

Use correct punctuation more please
