3357 is a .50 caliber paintball gun. Apparently it shares most parts with the 357, so I'm putting up the diagram and a drawing (by StevieLaner if I recall correctly):






and the early Crosman parts diagram:

http://www.airgunhome.com/forumdocs/cr357/C357-EVP1.pdf




Anyways, someone was asking about converting a 357 or other pellet/BB revolver to a paintball revolver. I don't know of anyone actually doing it- but alot of other people have asked this in the past as well.


This guy: logitburnitpaveit@yahoo.com

was posting on another forum about 3 and a half years ago about trying to create a 'kit' to convert regular .177 pellet pistols to paintball- but I have no idea if he ever got going/completed it. Anyone interested could try emailing him.

And lastly: member here - 'dougotis' was looking to buy a 3357 about a month ago- maybe send him a PM to find out if he found one (or more than one).


Hope something here helps.

Oops, sorry Stevie- I just remembered you were the newfound artist, as it were.

Now I have no idea now who did that picture- oh well- maybe they'll pop up here sometime and tell us. Huh?

Anyways- Doug Otis runs some sort of website for selling airgun periodicals and books- so maybe he has some other info socked away somewhere.


Here's a pic of a 3357:






And here's a guy with one for sale:

There's also a couple of 3357's for sale on Ebay (not necessarily cheap though). Search in All Categories for "3357 paintball" for them to come up.


The only other thing I might suggest in respect to converting something to paintball shooting- is talking to some of the "big bore" guys who have converted guns to 9mm pellets and the like. The same things they needed to do would be darn near identical to what would be required to convert something to paintball.

Diagram Update:

Turns out it was a gentleman who goes by the name "remote" online that drew that first representation of the 357. He did join here a little while back- but never activated the membership- so he can't actually see his picture posted (yet?).
