13 April 2008 - 01:19 PMI'm assuming the scratches aren't all that bad- if that is the case, it shouldn't create any issues and the o-rings will keep the air where it should be. If they are bad and the o-rings pass over the area, then it may create a very small leak or scratch the o-rings (a larger problem).
13 April 2008 - 10:42 AMOk- if the Ion is leaking down the barrel, then you most likely have an issue with the bolt. I use an L7 and am not very familiar with the Hollowpoint, so I'll just run through what I know/heard.
1) Make sure the bolt stop is installed correctly- if it isn't, it could cause air to leak down the front of the barrel.
2) Check the middle hose (connected to the QEV)- if it isn't pushed all the way in, then not enough pressure can build up to push the bolt back all the way.
3) Make sure the screw on the bolt stalk is properly tightened. In some cases, it will loosen and cause leaks.
4) The usual o-ring response... check any o-rings on the bolt, stalk, and bolt stop for scratches/tears, then clean and re-lube them.
Although the solenoid could be causing the problem, I personally find it unlikely because the air should normally fill the front chamber first, and only fill the firing can when the trigger is pressed. If the solenoid were dirty, then (correct me if I'm wrong) there should be issues after you fire the first shot- not before.
18 March 2008 - 01:24 PMI finally aired it up the other day, but I didn't have any paint to put through it... Absolutely no kick! Plus, the balance point is just behind my hand when I have my hopper on it. When I put paint in it, it should be right in my hand. Only new update other than that is a Virtue EZ-on, and instead of getting a Virtue board, I will probably go with the Seventh Element. It doesn't have membrane capability, but for half the cost, it is a trade-off I am willing to make.
And about the grips- if anyone is interested in some, shoot me a message. I can send pictures.
17 March 2008 - 12:43 PMI would definately go with the DeadlyWind Fibur- I have one on my Ion and absolutely love it.
14 March 2008 - 05:23 AMI'm pretty sure that the Freak Jr is just an inexpensive version of the Freak- it doesn't look as nice. If there is only a $10 difference, I would go with the Freak/Freak Jr and the All-American tip- it is fairly quiet and pretty accurate. They both take the same inserts. Also, I know that some people don't like carbon fiber barrels, but I think that you actually might like it. If I can't convince you, my brother has a Hammerhead- it is fairly loud for the person being shot at, but it is much more quiet to the sides. They show a small picture about the sound levels somewhere on their site. It isn't that bad looking, and although people say the rifling doesn't help (I used to be one of them), it is amazingly accurate. If I didn't buy the Fibur, I would have difinately gone with the Hammerhead.
