19 October 2008 - 11:34 PMGrr. The gauges Mike sells for the VSC's are crap. The first one I got didn't work to begin with and slowly broke itself even more with each shot. I sent it back and got a new one which worked for about a week, then went dead. Since then it's been sitting on the back of my gun useless. Well I didn't think much of it until this weekend right as a match was about to begin, a little piece of film flew off face of the gauge exposing a pin-sized hole and letting C02 escape.
Had to use my pistol for the rest of the day :/
Anyway, after some recommendations from people at the field, I went out and bought Mighty Putty to try to just fill the hole. Well, it didn't work. Well, it did manage to fill the hole, but the clear part of the gauge itself began to pop out. So I Puttied the whole thing, all around the guage and everywhere. Well I plugged in my air right now, and after about three seconds of success there was a loud pop (comparable to a small caliber pistol) and the entire gauge flew off at very high speed, just whizzing by my head.
What it looks like now (note the mighty putty... which as advertised can hold 350 pounds. I nearly died!)
What I could find left of the face of the gauge. The plexiglass part is still M.I.A.
The hole in the wall about 10 feet behind me left from the flying gauge.
Anyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyway. The point of this post is just to point out my experience with the gauge Wevo sells for the VSC Phantom. Also, I was wondering when I order a new Air Adapter (minus the gauge this time, screw that) will I need to locktite the threads on the compression elbow into the Air Adapter?
05 June 2008 - 10:24 PMI love my Phantom when she works... but half way through the day she likes to... not charge up. That is to say I'll screw in my tank and hear the hiss, but when I go to check at chrono it will just click when fired. As embarrassing as that is, I have to get out of line, unscrew the bottle and screw it back in. I don't think it's a bottle issue as I know I'm getting it in right and sometimes it wont work when I screw it back in. Sometimes she likes to lose all velocity what so ever to where the balls just roll out of the barrel when shot.
To note: She chews through O-rings like fat kids on taffy. I don't know what the dela is but I will often take the tank off and see the o-ring split in half.
I'm just wondering if it's a powertube issue or just user error.
19 May 2008 - 08:28 PMI recently bought a few extra nylon set screws but I have come to find that my Phantom chews through them making them useless pretty quickly. I've always had the issue where my velocity would drop steadily in game due to the velocity adjuster turning with every shot and I finally replaced the stock screw that the gun came with. And while it worked for a bit, I can still notice my velocity dropping and the little adjuster turning with every freaking shot.
Any ideas on how to remedy this?
10 April 2008 - 11:29 PMHey there. I've been playing PB at a a consistent rate for about 2 years now, though I played now and then before that.
Anyway, I've made some disposable income and want to dump it on a new gun. I'm going on this 3-day long Paintball weekend in CO. and want a backup to bring and so I can have a bit of variety. Anyway my budget is at about 800, although I would really like to spend no more than 400-500..
About my playstyle:
I use a Phantom as my primary and I love her to death.
I don't want a hopper I will never use a hopper again. Q-loader is even pushing it for me.
I want another "sniper" (hate that term) gun. So no lame 21 BPS or whatever the cool kids are rocking these days.
I've been looking at a Longbow Tac One, but for the life of me I can't seem to find one.
Besides the Longbow, I've had my eye on the Rifle version of the T9; would probably get 7 or so more mags to go with it.
So if anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them.
08 April 2008 - 11:13 PMI really like the Longbow kit but do not want to shell out nearly $1,000 bucks at this time, that and I don't want to fall back into the semi category
Anyway, SpecOps said they were making a kit for the Phantom, but I haven't seen one. Do I just suck at serfin' teh inerwebz or has one not yet been made?
Er, nevermind, after a quick forum search I see the project has already been scrapped. I leave this up as a lesson to nubs like myself to search before posting.
