Doesn't he just polish it? And that's it?? Why not break it in instead?

.I never know what to put in these things.

Sometimes I hate UPS.
Recently bought a pump. Guy shipped it ups Friday morning. I check tracking today and see it arrived at ups center that is 25 minutes from me.
They don't deliver on weekends and their office is closed. If t was USPS, it would have been delivered today :sigh:

but put yourself in his shoes.

usps tends to lose stuff more often and even if he did insure it, the headache of trying to fix the situation is still something anyone would try to avoid.

I always ship my markers via fedex or ups just because I've never had an issue with them failing to deliver my stuff.

I've never had an issue with USPS mail being misdirected or lost. I've sold a lot of items in the states as well as overseas. +100 ok PBn and +400 on fleabay.
One problem was the sellers fault for using thin cheap envelope for an ASA. It ripped and it fell.out during transit but I got the envelope :)

I prefer USPS and FedEx. They have been on time if not early on some packages. Ups has been timely for the most part, but have been delayed in a few occasions not including holidays or storms. That and delivery on Saturday is extra :tdown:

What killed me was it is 25 minutes away and I could have easily picked it up. Office is closed on Saturdays. That and the coming storm. I may not get it till Wednesday :(

Not upset, just a little bummed I don't have a new toy to play with while stuck inside.

Just killing time in a current "state of emergency" and checked status on package.

Very pleasantly surprised that the status is "out for delivery"!!! Wow UPSPosted Image I never would have guessed.
Much kudos to you!

Now hopefully the guy won't just throw it out of the truck as he drives by Posted Image

I guess I spoke too soon. I was just hoping for the best.
There has been a handful of times it would say out for deliveryn only to say it was rescheduled: and that is one a sunny, calm day.
Why would I expect different with some rain and wind ealier today.
He's probably sitting in his local pub laughing it up before he drives the truck back to the processing center.

+100 for USPS, they came and delivered the mail Posted Image

apologies, but i dont want to skew the test results im waiting for on my poly orings. if i mod the drivetrain now, it'll affect the results of that.

i'd say 4-6 more cases just to be sure, then i'll do an efficiency test to see what kind of numbers I'm getting with a 4000-4500k fill.

Don't expect much though.

I'd probably say about a pod more/less.

It's more of anti-bolt stick/less issue mod imo.

If you do finally get the mod hebiki or anyone else for that matter, check to see if the abs setting has any affect on fps once you lower the dwell. It seems that mines doesn't affect the first shot regardless of how idle I leave the marker. I just want to know if this is something related to me alone..

What lube are you using? Also make sure you use a very thin amount during winter. Dwell? Abs?

is this a CloneGT or CloneVX? use the version 2 Militia Lube. stock dwell on the GT is 12, any reason why you're at 15 (if you have a GT)?

it's a V2 with gold bolt. I am shooting Ultra Evil and I was chopping paint :( literally chopping in the breach. It was everywhere :( I just learned dwell doesn't effect the amount of air it takes to shoot the ball after reading the pooty mod thread.

give the militia lube v2 a try. i know cold weather clone owners on facebook have mentioned success with it. there is something definitely different with that lube compared to the first version and "stock" dow33.

it could potentially be a quick $5 fix for you. :tup:

Good news for VX guys:

Pooty should have everything ready for the VX spring mod this monday.

Bad news: it requires modification of the valve keg, valve and bolt-more parts than the gt mod. Pooty says it will not be cheap.

IF you guys haven't already.....drop a "like" to the official macdev service center in the US here in the West Coast... Aggressive Sports. They're making a big push to reach out to all MacDev users to improve customer service, etc.

their facebook page is: https://www.facebook...rtsDistribution

and their website is: http://www.aggressivesports.net



also i highly recommend you switch your lube to the V2 of the militia lube. :tup:
