Topics I've Started
18 December 2012 - 12:39 PMPretty much what the title says, I have the hammer 7 on order with an extra magazine and I need to know how big they are so I can get the right size mag pouches. Thanks for any help!
That's the mag I'm talking about
03 October 2011 - 09:56 AMSo first off all credit to the original design and manufacture of these mags goes to my friend Scott or the Triffed on the tactical paintball forums (tacticalpaintball.com/newforum) I just made the modifications to make them work almost perfectly.
Now the mags are made of plastic and use a plastic ball pusher and the tiberius first strike mag spring to load the first strikes. The original mags werent made with exact size of a first strike, but got really close. I cut up some of my nametags for work and jb welded them inside the mag to make up for the gaps. I also had two ball pushers originally but they didn't push all the way into the marker so it didn't maintain constant pressure on the first strikes which caused the last one to break, because it wouldn't be properly aligned in the breach when the bolt moved forward. So I used a dremel to cut up one and then used jb weld to make a new ball pusher which is longer and doesn't allow the ball to become misaligned. On the Traccer in order to mount it you have to make sure the magazine is properly aligned to the breach and then drill two holes through the top rail. The top rail is only plastic and where you will drill the holes wont effect anything other than the cosmetics of the marker. Then you use two bolts and nuts to attach the mag to the marker. There is one problem that I experienced and its that if you drop the marker or smack a tree really hard on the magazine it may break the mag off the side. I broke it off the side of my traccer and chose to JB weld it to my marker. I would like to see these made out of metal to avoid the problem and make it sturdier, but neither my friend or I have the ability to do so.
Now on to loading the mag. All you have to do is slide the ball pusher back until you can lock it in then open the hinge on top. That allows you to just slide the first strikes in the mag. I have learned though that you need to be careful when doing this because if the ball pusher becomes unlocked it will shoot the spring and pusher about 3 feet in whatever direction its facing, as well as any first strikes inside. Then when the rounds are loaded you close the mag and unlock the ball pusher. then you are ready to go.
The magazine doesn't stick out that much on the side but its noticable and takes a little getting used to. It may also need some lube and a dust cover, because playing in the dirt or sand tends to make it jam a tad. But all in all I'm very happy with this mod and it doesnt chop my first strikes like my old t9 did
edit: As for the 98 custom I used a longer screw where the clamshell comes together on top and another bolt that I jb welded to the side of the gun and tightened it down with nuts and a ziptie. I had to dremel out a first strike breach for the 98 and in order to get it to fit in the rifle stock I had to dremel off the hopper attachment holes. I have it set up in semi auto but I have another powertube that is single shot modded, I just cant find a way to put a bolt action handle on the gun so I haven't had it installed yet.
now for pics
01 September 2010 - 07:47 AMok so I have owned my t9 for about a year and it hasn't been an issue till recently but every third shot chops a first strike. I have tried loading less than a full may but it doesn't help. I don't know how to fix it and I have friends have sent their t9s in and Tiberius looks at it and says they are fixed, but they keep chopping first strikes. Does anybody know how to fix it?
05 November 2009 - 06:25 PMThis just pisses me off, today at lunch I'm watching the news. Turns out there had been a shooting at Fort Hood, here in Texas. It said 9 had been killed and 11 wounded. As time went on the numbers grew to 11 killed and 31 wounded, the shooter was an Army Major getting ready to be deployed. Somebody said that he didn't want to be deployed and thats what caused this tragedy. But these people he shot were people he was serving with! Brothers in arms, the people you can count on when the poo hits the fan. I just have no idea why somebody would just turn on the people he serves with. It scares me to know that there are people like this in our military, people who are supposed to protect the citizens of the United States. But whats done has been done, all we can do is wait and hope that the 31 people he injured pull through. So anyone who has friends in the military, supports the military, or hell just anyone, please put these individuals in your prayers and in your hearts. They are in mine.
31 August 2009 - 05:39 AMOk I am having an issue with my t9. Yesterday when I chronoed it for the first time since I owned it I learned that it was shooting hot so naturally I turned it down. However, when I did so I stopped getting consistent shots. When it was shooting over three hundred it was atleast shooting +/- 4, but when I chronoed it down to under 280 it would give me shots like with one mag, 212-249-278-289-294-275 and another mag would give me shots like, 212-220-202-210-330-209. Also if I adjusted it to raise the pressure then it would go over 300 and I would lower it back down and the inconsistent chrono would continue. Does anyone have a remedy for the affliction?
