Now that is insane! GREAT JOB MAN!!! 11/10!

The weld and everything is holding up with a full HaloB hopper load? I saved up enough for this and a body chroming wahoo.

My guess is he has just the LP valve. I remember talking to former TE player Evan Aris and him saying that some of TE guns did not have T vertical adapter and LP chamber but just valve.

How are you running at Torpedo Reg without the
LPK? Have you modified your valve and hammer??


I have the velocity screw turned to be flush with the body. From there I get a consistent operating pressure that keeps my velocity around 290.

If you run the E-bolt you want to make sure you don't starve the valve for air.

With the velocity screw flush with the body I keep the fps up around 290 consistently with no drop off at high rates of fire.

I'll probally be sending my gun in for a powder coating/center feed mod this spring. Exactly like that, except instead of the matte iron, it will be a matte red.


Hows the coat holding up? Better than the factory tippmann paint?


Does the centerfeed increase the feed rate?


 



It is a brand new powdercoat so I can't speak for its durability, however, I have another one with a coat that's about a year old. That one has held up exceptionally well.

I've set the mode to full auto with the max bps and it is flawless. It shoots ropes of paint and never skips a beat until it's out of paint.

The real advantage of the centerfeed is that it provides better balance and reduces my target profile.

No. And it is the battery box for the e-bolt.

Some people find it gets in the way. For them they simply mount the box on the drop forward.
