MilSig M-Series Paradigm

This is a quick snapshot of the MilSig M-Series Paradigm Limited Edition Paintball marker.
It is a magazine fed paintball marker but can be converted to use a hopper within a few minutes.
It features a beautiful CNC body. Machined with 7-Series Aluminum and 6-series Aluminum it gives the body a strong body and rugged frame.

  • Caliber: 0.68 Cal.
  • Weight: 3.150kg (without Mag & 13CI HPA Cylinder)
  • Fire Mode: Semi-Automatic
  • Length: 39" Full Length / 33" Without Extension
  • Power Source: HPA, Nitrogen, CO2
  • Operating Pressure: 800psi
  • Barrel Length: 18" Full Length / 12" Without Extension
  • Velocity: 250-350 fps
  • Stock: 13CI HPA Stock
  • Construction: 7-Series Aluminum, 6-Series Aluminum, Polyethylene Plastic, ABS Plastic, Steel Nuts and Bolts
The Paradigm features Zinc Allow Open Style Front & Rear sights. The peep sight can be adjusted with 4 different peep hole settings on a rotating dial. 
A air-in stock (referred to as Moible Air Tank Stock (MATS ) houses a 13CI tank and has adjustable positions. Although the shortness of your adjustment comes down to how long your tank is.
The OEM MilSig tank is a about 20cm long.
The MATS allows mobility and no remote lines. 
So far I have been able to shoot off about 130 rounds.
Which is equivalent to 5-6 magazines.

The magazines themselves hold 19 rounds each. The ones I own
are in smoke color. These magazines use a winder and a spring to
feed the paintballs into the chamber. The winder pulls back the spring and a clam shell style nozzle with ball detentes in it keeps the paintballs from dropping out. When the clam shell is pushed down, it releases the detentes and allows the balls to be fed into the chamber. When the magazine is clipped into the marker, it presses a pin and releases the winder.

When I get the chance I will write up another post about the internals of the magazine and possibly the marker itself during a cleaning process.
The 557 Holosight is a separate purchase but once you have it dialed in, it shoots wonderfully and hits on target.

A bonus feature of the MilSig Magazine Feed System is that their markers can be easily converted to become a hopper based shooter within minutes.
All in all. It is a well built paintball marker. Durable and a great strong feeling to it. It fires well and is great for MilSim scenerios.
Also satisfies the need of a replica firearm. In later post I will write up about the MilSig Solid Gear product line tactical vests.

    Starcraft 2 Beta Key!

    Got my Starcraft 2 Beta Key two days ago.
    Loving it, sort of stink now though. Haven't play in a while and I still have the bad habit of turtling.

    MilSig Paradigm Paintball Marker

    About a week ago I decided that I will be attempting to take back up Paintballing and use it as a form of off-site exercise. I love paintballing and it is a great sport to enjoy. However, I didn't want to use rental stuff anymore and decided to research and invest into it.
    Although it was not cheap I came across MilSig.
    A Canadian company and there goods are manufactured in Taiwan. Being a local Vancouver person there distrubution office and warehouse is in Richmond. (They are not a retail store!).

    However, there are places that do carry MilSig stuff and are their registered dealers.
    Paradigm is one of their top of the line paintball markers and is also a limited edition series.
    With that said. My serial number is 000137. They released the Paradigm last year in 2009.

    I will have photos posted soon but at the moment I can say it is beautiful.
    Most of the body and the shroud etc is CNC Machined Aircraft grade aluminum.
    It is a magazine fed marker but can be converted to use a hopper (which is a simple conversion. Not hard to do at all, the marker includes the kit for it). But the main intent of MilSig Markers are that they are magazine fed which is great for those that love to run Mil Sim Scenario Paintball and just love Mag Fed stuff themselves.

    Anyways, for now I will be back later.

    Hanging out with Brad.

    Really fun night.
    What went from guys steak night became shot drinking night
    and then video gaming and really fun conversations with friends of Brad's.
    Unfortunately we forgot to take pictures of the food so we ate the steak which was really good.
    Coming to think of it. We forgot to take pictures of the fries too.

    To be updated later!.
    For now, hopefully the rain is not going to kill things so I can go paintballing.

    TBC Lap time

    Finally got my lap times at TBC back down to
    Now to work on throttle and braking control.
    Loose some weight and finalize seat and pedal positions.
    Goal is still to get the time into the 30's and below.
    Hopefully at some point hitting 29's.

    I think I'm going a bit aggressive on the straights or maybe not aggressive enough.
    Need to pin the throttle a bit more and take it into the corners better.
    Got a two whole seconds to save off.

    Fastest lap as of recently: 31.386 seconds.

    It is only a few months away. Hope people have plans to enjoy what will hopefully
    be a sunny summer.
