So... paintball kinda had to take a break from me, because me was broke. Which means I'm a little rusty on some things. Which is also why I've not been around much.

Looking to put in a little trigger time/practice just to get into the swing again, but no chrony. I know WHERE to adjust velocity, but which direction is which? I think it might be WAYYY up.

After gassing it up for the first time in about a year or more, it had an INSANE amount of air going down the barrel. I finally remembered that I'd put in my extra ULT shims, and so I took them out, which fixed it. Also, it seems I only got like 6 shims... which doesn't matter right now, because I can only get the thing to work with 3 anyway. But the whole thing seems stiffer now. Trigger pull is way heavier than I remember, and the anti-chop actually hurts my finger now, when before I could barely feel the bugger. It also doesn't like to reset without another trigger pull when I engage the anti-chop. What can I do to lighten the trigger pull and make things seem a little smoother? I think I read that if I use a different spring, I might be able to use more shims or something...

I got pretty good at walking the trigger when I was in practice, and before it started acting so weird, but it's hard now. I understand that the ULT can only do so much, so I'm interested in finally making it a pneumag. I still can find the link Druid sent me like a year ago, but since I'm just a LITTLE techtarded, I was hoping to find someone that would be willing to give me a shopping list and cost estimate, and probably do the installation for me. I sent someone a picture of the inside of the grip a while ago, because I understand that it needs specific milling to accept the 3-way and what not. He seemed to think it was already milled, but didn't sound 100%. I've got an 08 RT Custom ULE, but I can post the pictures if that doesn't really tell you anything.

Not 'Mag related, but I understand that the EggIII doesn't really like regular nine volts (Duracell, Energizer, etc....), and mine sure as hell doesn't seem to. Even with fresh batteries, it won't cycle more than half the time! I heard there was a battery that was specifically targeted at loaders, anyone got a name for me?

Also, I see we finally got a facepalm emote! Thanks for that AND in advance.

Try posting your question on AO (automags.org). The guys over there will be able to tell you everything you need to make it a pneumatic....some of the guys perform the mods for fees so they are going to know 100% what you need.

Yeah, I'll head to AO for this.

It's working, it's just a little... off.

Edit: Also, I'm starting to look into my brass barrel again. Is it Palmer's that does the kind of hourglass bore?
