13 October 2007 - 02:56 PMMy set up:
Trilogy Tactical SF ( not pro or comp, just plain trilogy)
New Crossfire High Pressure 88/4500 tank
Halo Front Man LCD Hopper
No other Mods on the gun yet.
Hi all, today I used my trilogy tactical SF for the first time on the field. The gun is like 2 weeks old out of the box and the gun preformed really badâ€¦ the balls were chopping every 5th ball, and the accuracy was horrible ( even with a clean barrel and chamber). I never seen paintball acrobatics like today, no spray pattern what so ever, by 40 yards the spread was about 15 feet across, it was going everywhere. I used 2 different high quality paint with hardshells and shaped perfectly round. Iâ€™m using the default barrel that came with the gun. I checked that the ball size fit well with the barrel, but I think its breaking in the chamber by the bolt. Gun was chronoed to 285 fps.
I havenâ€™t touched any of the settings besides the micro switches in the grip to make it semi. I kept the bolt lubed with paint gun oil and the eyes on. There are no obstructions in the chamber besides the ball dent and I really doubt thatâ€™s the problem. I asked the guy in the shop at the field I went to and he doesnâ€™t know why its doing what it does. I really havenâ€™t got the slightest clue what could be chopping the balls so badly and shoot so horribly wrong with a clean barrel, which soon becomes wet with paint.
Anyone know how I can remedy this?

The auction started at 99 cents and it ends on Sunday night of Oct 7, 2007 - 9:14 PM PDT
I'm willing to accept trade offers via PM,
If you want to make a offer with money PM me or bid on the auction, I'm hoping for 90 dollars shipped.
If you offer me a good amount i may be able to work something out.
Item description and photos are in the auction link.
Some of the description:
This is a used Tippmann C3, its only been used 5 times in the field and has shot less then a case of paint, its unmodified using all stock parts. The reason Iâ€™m selling this gun is because I bought a much more expensive set up and I need some extra cash. The gun has some scratches on the body from wear, but the gun is built solid and works perfectly. I cleaned and maintained the internal parts well with Tippmann oil. Iâ€™m going to include an extra O-ring specific to the marker and the hex wrench that opens the body. The velocity is adjusted with a flat head screwdriver so you have all the tools you need, I'm also including a manual. I left the AAA battery in the grip already so it will be ready to play out of the box, just attach your 3 dollar Propane Tank and Hopper and Go!!
29 September 2007 - 08:04 AMI have an Autococker Trilogy SF, its new I just got it yesterday in the mail. It works great so far, it’s a little louder then I thought it would be, but my main problem is that when I shoot I get a shot of air coming up from the gun in to the feed tube, I see the balls in my hopper flying up and around every time I shoot. I’m pretty sure this isn’t so post to happen but I can’t seem to find anything about it since I don’t know what this problem is called is called, can anyone offer some remedies? I’m using CO2 for now.
21 September 2007 - 07:02 AMIs it possible to transfer the E Grip on Trilogy/Superstock SF (or any of the autococker SF guns) to older models like say, the VF Tactical, instead of buying a Worrblade or an e1-2 for 3-500 dollars to the effect of having a SF on a VF-T.
17 September 2007 - 01:41 AMI have been using a Tippman C-3 pump-gun for a bit just to get my feet wet in to the Paint Balling. I figure it be good to start out with since I donâ€™t need to pay for air, or a air tank (runs on a $3 tank of propane and lasts a LONG while), I can shoot it where ever I want long as I have ammo. I started with a pump to develop smarter tactics on the field using a limited gun. My aim is fairly good, I usually hit what I intend to a medium distances but not over long range (gun isnâ€™t customizable at all), I think I got most the tactics down to where Iâ€™m pretty comfortable playing in the field and knowing what to do. Now Iâ€™m looking for an upgrade.
Iâ€™m still pretty new to Paint Balling, Iâ€™m not very familiar with the guns out there, and really accessorizing them. What Iâ€™m looking for is consistency in shots, accuracy, quietness, reliability, long range, light in weight and compact in size and possibly not a high maintenance. Iâ€™m aware that thereâ€™s a lot of trial and error in the beginning with autocockers and Iâ€™m willing to work for it if thereâ€™s milk and honey on the other side. Nothing TINKLEes me off more then when I have the shot lined up and something is wrong with the gun losing my chance. My friend told me about autocockers and I had a slight interest in them back before I played and I heard about how they were the rave awhile back. So Iâ€™m looking at them now. I play both woods ball and speedball. So I want a versatile gun.
Iâ€™m willing to spend 200-400 on a gun, I want a gun that will last me a while and not leave me wanting too much more.
So far Iâ€™m interested in the BlackMagic, SuperStock 05, Trilogy Tactical SF, VF- Tactical. Iâ€™m heavily considering the BlackMagic. Want I really want though is an autococker with tac rails so I can stick on a red dot sight and another 2x-4x scope cuz Iâ€™m blind when it comes to seeing far. But from what Iâ€™m reading the trilogy is sort of the lower end of the autocockers and the VF-Tactical needs some expensive upgrades for SF modes and I just canâ€™t seem to find a vendor online that actually sells the VF-T. Although Iâ€™ll prolly be using semi most the time I still want that full auto capability when ever I need it.
BM seems most appealing to me except that it has no way of putting sights on it, or am I wrong?
Can the Black Magic and SuperStock 05 have sight rails put on them some how?
And what is the difference between the mech and electro performance wise? What is better?
If neither BM nor SS can be mounted with sights then if I found a VF-Tactical for lower then 300 then I think I would be pretty happy with that. If BM is mountable with sights id Defiantly go with it, and if SS or the Trilogy Tact is a better deal from convincing posts then Iâ€™ll consider buying it. And hell, if I can find a Karni for lower then 400 new, Iâ€™ll buy it. Iâ€™m not very use to tactics with a high-end marker, going from pump to some of these guns is gunna be the difference of night and day so Iâ€™m not sure if Iâ€™m making a smart decision in what I want in a marker, like if sights should really alter my decision. Iâ€™m also willing to consider other brands if it fits my needs well. So far I only researched autocockers and Iâ€™m maybe be seeing tunnel vision when it comes to making a choice, although Iâ€™ll do a ton of research online before I make major purchase.
If you guys can help me out with the dilemma between the 4 markers it would be a huge help. Iâ€™ve done a lot of reading but I still feel like I donâ€™t know enough. Also donâ€™t be afraid to suggest other guns and brands, Iâ€™ll defiantly look in to them as I really want to widen my knowledge about paintball guns.
