12 February 2009 - 08:47 AMUse only a liion charger for a lithium ion pack! We use these packs extensively in model aircraft, and they can ignite or explode if charged improperly. Your current charger will definately do this, as a 2 cell liion pack has 7.4v, and your gonna be charging it at about 14v. Liion packs need to be charged at their voltage rating, by a specially designed charger for those packs, anything other can cause a fire.
12 February 2009 - 08:29 AMAlright... A moment of reality... In addition to being a paintballer, I'm a snowmobiler too and face the same types of problems you (we) are as paintballers. A negative perception of the sport in many's eye, stupid people doing stupid things, and lawmakers and lawmen on our tail.
As a member of a sled related forum, I see members posting topics of the same basic genre as the OP asking others to not do stupid things. The problem with this approach is that the most of the retards doing the retarded stuff aren't even members of hobby specific forums. They don't care enough about the sport and it's future, so posting rants like this one imploring them to stop the idiocy is virtually pointless.
If you really want to help insure the future of your sport, write letters to the editor, letters to lawmakers and lawmen explaining your position and asking them to punish retarded people and enforce existing laws, not make up more laws that infringe on the rest of the responsible hobbyists.
True that, I just had to get it off my chest, and maybe somebody will read it and take it to heart that would otherwise do a stupid thing. We don't have much of this kind of problem in my area, but it does seem to pop up alot in more populated areas. Maybe a contact to youtube would help, as it may remove some of these stupid actions from the public eye.
12 February 2009 - 08:25 AMFirst, clean it well, remove the pin in the back of the marker, remove the sear and bolt assembly, swab out the inside of the marker, use water to clean it on the swab, and then squegee the inside. Dry it thoroughly, and clean the bolt and sear with water, dry, and reassemble. Then, put some oil in the asa and cycel as stated above, but do not use air too oil. The viscosity is different, and the air too oil is thicker, which could cause your mechanics to slow down, your o rings to wear faster, and the valve to have some interesting problems. You might be able to get away with it, but it could also cause you some problems.
10 February 2009 - 08:15 PMStriker o-ring, or ball detents?
mine does this if the bolt is dirty, or the top tube that the bolt rides in. What happens is, the co2 doesn't have enough oomph to push the bolt and sear back when their dirty, and they do a fast machine gun like thing, kinda like when your out of air, but louder and a tad faster. At some point, after a couple of shots, the sear doesn't have enough kick to open the valve, and the marker goes dead. Clean it out real good, check for worn or missing orings, and replace your detents. Is it the version with eyes or without? A nicad or nimh battery will lose it's effectiveness if not stored properly. One thing you can do is cycle it, leave the marker on until the battery is fully depleted, then recharge it. Doing this a few times will get rid of whats called memory, and hopefully bring the battery back (if it's the battery)
Good luck, let us know how it works.
