Doc's Machine
X-Ray Posters
By Bill Mills - May 2004

For those who have longed to get a look inside their paintgun, ďDocĒ Nickel has provided an answer, without needing Supermanís x-ray vision.

Docís Machine in Kenai, Alaska has produced the next best thing to X-Ray Specs, x-ray posters of popular paintball guns.  Starting with actual x-ray images of an E-Blade Autococker, Ironmen Intimidator, X-Mag and SFT Shocker, Doc has laid out posters which also include a photograph of the paintgun and a description of the paintgunís parts layout.

The eighteen by twenty-four inch posters show each paintgun approximately 30 percent larger than life, to help identify their different components.  They are printed on 100 pound poster stock paper with a gloss enhancing topcoat.  

Steel and brass parts show up in the x-rays as solid white with hard outlines, while aluminum and less dense materials have a ghosted grey appearance.   Especially for the Autococker and Intimidator, the contrast between steel components and aluminum receiver makes it easy visualize their operation.  

The X-Mag on the other hand has so much steel in its x-valve structure that some of the finger details such as the on/off assembly and regulator piston are difficult to make out.  Its electromechanical components however, the solenoid and sear linkages are easily visualized in the poster.   Even the individual cells within the 9-volt battery of the Autococker and the steel braiding on the air hose of the X-Mag are clearly visible.  

Docís Machine X-Ray posters are available individually, or as a set of four direct from Docís Machine.  Dealer pricing is also available.
