So I'm trading a cocker and Phantom for a Blazer, apparently... I've always wanted to mess with a Blazer, and if I can trade for one, I'll take that chance. Any opinions on em? Anyone know the difference between 1k and 2k models?

That's a good read. Should answer you're questions.

I love my Blazer. Infact I'm saving to send it home to PPS fro something special. I'm also hoarding parts away for a future E-Blazer build.

If I had the choice between the 1k and 2k I'd go 2k. Slight more refined & the bolt can't shoot out the back of the gun. Just 2 quickioes I can think of. There's alot of info in the link above.

Well, it's practically en route to me.

I'm more wondering what the idiosyncracies of the 1k vs the 2k are... I know enough about the 2ks, but don't know the evolution so well.

Thanks.

Sheesh, did they superglue these switch cups in here?

Yeah, I've never seen em stuck in so tight.

I called Lori and she said they'd use an ultrasound to remove 'em if I sent it in. $25 for labor, though... minimum, depending on how long it took.

I'm gonna try and find an ultrasound vibrator on campus to shake the seals clean with, if it starts leaking heavily enough. But for now, it actually barely leaks at all, after just a drop or two of oil into the air adapter and cleaning the front two switch cups. And it really does RIP. I'm actually very tempted to see if I can tune the trigger a bit for a lighter pull, cuz it's rather snappy right now (1k smallbore lower tube, stiffer spring, and all), or use the higher-flow pin I've got in the parts kit and see if I could lighten the hammer spring a hair.

What if you took a can of condensed air (like you use to clean the keyboard) and shoot it into the other side of the 4 way? You could possibly shoot out the parts then. Aside from that.....i am at a loss...sorry. Nice blazer you have though. Sorry it's so troubling. :blink:

Nope, compressed air won't do the trick. I think she's gonna take a little trip to Cali, and get the switch replaced. She's old enough to get a rebuild anyways... SN BZ272, and running on the original seals I'm willing to bet. You wouldn't believe the work I did on that ram- the end of the shaft was mushrooming against the p-block, she's been shot so much. The barrel needs some brasso run down the bore, too.

I figure 50-75 dollars to get that switch opened up, replaced, and timed isn't too horrifying, considering what the results should be. And hey, it's AFTER they ditched the tech that goofed the other guys' stuff, so I'm all good! Although, a switch rebuild kit is only $25... if only I can find a way to pound those seats outta there without scarring the body.

ooh... actually you have me thinking. What if I freon'ed the switch cups? Maybe they'd shrink up enough to pop right out. Or do cycles with freon and a torch to crack whatever grime layer is making them stick.

Well, don't actaully use freon. Cuz itz bad for the environmentz yo. No but really you can turn those canned are cans upside down and you get liquid whatever it is. It's pretty cold. I dont know if it would work though.
