05 August 2010 - 05:24 AMDid you get your Etek3?
03 November 2008 - 07:40 AMStay away from RAP4. Deth is correct about TechT's original paddles but they have been redesigned to now include locking teeth.
I have the lapco 12" apex ready barrel and love it. I purchased it with the apex tip.

24 October 2008 - 10:06 AMwhen i get lowish on air my cyclone stops feeding balls, i can manually feed them, and i can get another 100 or so shots before velocity drops off, but it would be nice to have the cyclone keep working. i am pretty sure i saw on here somewhere about an upgrade part that will allow it to keep running on lower pressure?
if it matters this is with Co2
if i am getting the FPS range i need, would the strength of the spring i am using behind the hammer have any effect on this? (weaker spring=less co2 being let into the gun=when it runs lower not enough is getting in? i could be completly off here. ) i just added a weaker spring to get the velocity down some.
thanks for the ideas
Turn your cyclone over and remove those 4 screws and you'll see the ratchet in the middle. Make sure that where the ratchet and the cyclone housing touch, there is lube. I personally use white lithium grease and never had an issue. Also, make sure not to over tighten those 4 screws because then the ratchet will rub against that cover. Reuducint the amount of friction will require less air to keep it spinning.
CO2?? If you shoot fast enough I suppose liquid CO2 could enter your cyclone and freeze the stock plastic ratchet which could make it brittle??
A weaker spring behind the hammer does reduce the amount of air the valve releases which could affect your cyclone performance. If you do want to adjust the amount of air that gets released when thre hammer strikes the valve pin, you may want to check out JCS Rear Velocity Adjustment. This way you can adjust it so you can tweak your marker's performance unlike just changing the spring.
Another option is to install a palmer's stabilizer. They were specifically made for CO2 users to help stabilize their shot to shot consistency but they also work well for HPA users. They are adjustable so you can lower the operating pressure of the air that enters the tombstone.
24 October 2008 - 09:54 AMOne way to handle brittle paint in upcoming colder months is to switch your stock paddles out for a set of TechT Squishie or Wargear Squishie paddles. They are not expensive ~$25 and they are a lot more delicate on paintballs. That metal finger may also have some sharp edges that you could round off with a nail file. Sometimes though, there's nothing you can do about bad paint. Except maybe curse at it??
