  1. Picked up a Hammer Plus

    19 July 2008 - 12:47 PM

    Managed to find this nice little lot of gear this weekend. Picked it up for $10, total; I believe this qualifies as a good deal ^_^. I think gas going out to pick it up cost me more than the marker did. Ouch.

    Anyway, it looks to be in great shape, though it probably needs new o-rings; they take standard Spyder rings, or what? And the X-fire mask fills me with trepidation, should I actually choose to wear it. Heh.

    Actually, its probably the best deal I've ever gotten on a marker, and it looks better than any other Hammer I've seen. Outside of some scuffing and a little bit of paint flake on the grip frame, its like new. With the instructions. I don't have the instructions for the markers I bought last year!

  2. Seems the Trigger is Arwy

    13 March 2008 - 07:18 PM

    Well, I got my Automag ULE about a month and a half ago. Nice, shiny, new, tried it out, and it worked fine, save for one minor problem. The trigger didn't always reset correctly; the pin which the trigger pushes against didn't always pop out. But I play pump most of the time, the Automag was for scenarios. Only took it out twice, but after last weeks big game, I decided to try and get it tuned to my liking.

    So, I took it apart, to see what the trouble was. Added another shim to the factory installed ULE Trigger pull, popped it all back together. Now the trigger doesn't engage at all, it stays loose when the thing is gassed up. I know that the gas is reaching the bolt and going through the ULE valve, and the level ten, but I just don't think the trigger mechanism is engaging.

    As it stands, there is no spring in the trigger mech, it relies solely on air pressure to reset when pulled and to pop it out. There are no loose parts that I can see, either, just a single, multi jointed piece consisting of the pin the actual trigger hits and what not. So, what am I missing? What error have I made? Is it the trigger, or something with the ULE valve?

    Thanks in advance,

  3. What airsmith?

    23 January 2008 - 08:30 PM

    Well, awhile ago I purchased a PGP, and after much fidgeting, a little tinkering, a little more cursing, I still haven't gotten the thing to work consistently. And thats after changing every oring, the puncture assembly, and disassembling the thing at least 20 odd times. And, I've decided to put a K-frame on the thing, and get slots cut into the feed tube.

    I've got the K-frame, but I need an airsmith to get it to work consistently, cut the slots, and possibly tune it. Right now, I'm leaning towards Palmers, but I know there are others out there and am looking for suggestions. Price isn't really a consideration (hell, the K-frame costs more than the marker, anyway), but if I could avoid huge fees, that would be pretty cool. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Taking the Plunge

    17 January 2008 - 02:53 PM

    Well, a couple months back I posted about getting a Mag, and the lurkers of this forum were nice enough to help out. Especially Warden Wolf, to whom I say, many thanks. I've got the cash now, and am about to start clicking on 'add to cart', but I figured I couldn't go amiss with asking you all to do a once over to make sure I'm not missing anything.

    Would I need, or should I get, an ASA or drop forward? Kinda new to HPA, so suggestions or comments would be much appreciated.

    This is mostly for a forward, aggressive playstyle. Comments, particularly on the air tank, are appreciated!

    Thanks Again,
