PostSubject: TipX with Apex2?   Sat Jul 06, 2013 1:41 am

Does anyone happen to know how I can put my apex2 on my TipX? I want it to be an inch away from the marker itself so I can still take off the CO2 cartridge cap while in mid-play. I'm assuming I need a barrel with threads on the end and then that threaded apex tip that I heard about. Anybody know what I need to have 1 or 1 1/2 inch clearance?

I know flasc makes a set up that had an adaptor for the apex and gives you about an inch from their backs. They have a similar set up as hammerhead. If I get a chance I can take a picture of it for you.

Envii, I would love a picture.

Thanks for advice guys, I will look both up, my barrel is a little too long anyway. Got it used without the stock barrel, came with an "upgraded" barrel.


Dat barrel

Thats a back combined with an apex2 adaptor. It gives about an extra inch before the apex starts. Not sure if that would be enough but I believe flasc makes extensions that would help. You can always email them they have good customer service.

If you look closely it is already connected to the back. thats the back connected to the adaptor. But yea it all just screws in to each other. If you look closely there are slots that push air back to you kind of like a suppresser. Idk I like it lol

Oh that's actually pretty sweet, I emailed flasc though. For now that long barrel had a lucky perfect size notch to fit the apex2, but its too long, so its temp, but look, I'll be test firing it later.


*sorry for shitty pic, cba to take another, didn't realize till now*

The worst flasc can do is tell you no so that's good that you asked. And yea that barrel is pretty look for it although it's still better than not being able to use it.

Yeah that's true, on this barrel it's angled up, about 1 degree. It makes it shoot really straight somehow with the apex off.

 
This is what flasc said:

"we do have a TPX barrel, with the deluxe adapter it would put the apex tip about half inch to an inch in front of the shroud, however I need to get my hands on a TPX to measure if it would be far enough to clear the CO2 knob, I think it is but its close so I cant say for sure. if you can let me know how far out the co2 knob extends I can measure the apex2 adapter and tip and confirm if it would fit or not for you"


So I'm going to send them measurements tomorrow.

Haha, I do hope so. I got a pistol lanyard that goes around my belt, or anything, for the mil-sim effect too. Probably going to attach a rail on the top of the block, and maybe behind the block too, put a flashlight on the bottom, etc. Very Happy.

Gotta get those measurements out.

I've decided against the new barrel considering I got a sweet deal on something, no hints, just pics when I get it.
