'04 BKO...fires pretty darn quick. Quiet too...on par with my Angel.

Looks sweet! I can't wait to see that baby in action. Guess I'll have to start saving my pennies for an autococker of my own. Damn this addictive sport... :)

He got a helluva deal on that gun... below even web-site pricing.

Interesting...I'll have to talk to him about the details. I've got a bonus check coming my way that ought to just about cover one.... :dorky:

It really was one great deal. Thanks so much for picking it up. Can't wait to give it a try.

You realize of course that I had to check it for "manufacturers defects". I put about 30 balls through it in my back yard using my own hopper. It cooks.

You'll have fun tinkering with the trigger...there's like 3 screws that let you adjust it any which way you want (including spring tension regulating the amount of pressure you have to use to initiate a pull.)

Bribo - I picked up that rubber washer for you.

Not to be left out, I got a set of volumizers and a soft-touch bolt for myself. :)

The rabbits run when they see Squidly unloading new paintball gear.

Did you pick up a new black Egg2 for yourself? Did you figure out the rule change to make clear loaders illegal in tourneys? Is it because you can see when your opponent is running out of paint, and thus might place you at a tactical advantage?

Yep, I got a black egg for myself...I forgot to include that in my post. The reason for the clear being disallowed is that it makes it hard for the refs to spot hopper hits.

They're also disallowing multiple or excessively large stickers.

These are NPPL rules, but they're also being adopted by many of the smaller tourneys.

I might be interested in your clear egg.

I'll be taking the z-board out of it, Bribo. Still, you won't outshoot it with your gun, as the x-board delivers 16-17 bps and I think your gun is capped lower than that.

It's covered with stickers and is used. I bought it new at 75, I'll sell it to you for 30 and 2 beers. Deal?

Sounds good. Bring it up in August when you come up to the lake.

Here's a question--is that a BKO or a BKO Xtreme?

BKO 2004... I've never heard of the "Xtreme".

There are 2 versions of the BKO. The unmilled and the milled version (new for '04), which is what I have. I've seen it referred to as a BKO Xtreme. The unmilled version was released in a smaller run this year, as the Xtreme version got a big push. Up until this year, the older body style was the only available. The only differences between the two are the unmilled version has the new style Indian Creek high pressure regulator, and a one-piece barrel. The "Xtreme" uses the old style reg, but comes with a two piece barrel.

Interestingly, PBReview posts this picture for the BKO:

and this one for the Xtreme BKO:

So I'd imagine Fax's is the latter. I much prefer that look (better bling factor), and it's less expensive than the "normal" BKO.

I don't think your gun has a 2 part barrel.

I'll have to remedy that.

Fax what hopper are you using with your bko ? also how do you find the recoil, I bet its nothing compared to the Xtra :)

I'm using the Viewloader Evlution 2 with a Z board. I haven't chopped a ball yet. The recoil is negligable, it's a galaxy apart from the Spyder. I can drop multiple shots within inches of each other consistently.
