You are getting First Shot Drop Off or bolt stick. MacDev guns like REALLY slick thin lube, almost oil, but sticks to the bolt.

Use a thin amount of Dow33, Sauce or Monkey poo and up the FSDO by 1.5 MS and you should be good to go. Can i be the Macdev Militia fan boy? Posted Image I wanted a droid for the longest time and I'll probably trade my Luxe for a Clone eventually.

Those with the original clones might, the V2 Clones rarely shread Orings, it's only due to crappy orings or poor maintenance.

bravo,

do you know what's a good substitute for that plastic shift-insert tool?

It gets hard to remove the shift inserts if they're fairly tight with it.

probably going to take my little cousin out balling next weekend. I just got my clone that needs some use, he is getting his new mini tomorrow. So we both got new guns to test out :)

I honestly had no idea how passionate that little kid was for paintball, he use to like going every now and then but apparently since ive been awya at school he has gotten really into it. Its all he wanted to talk about with me yesterday. I gave him some old proto pants i had that didnt fit me anymore, my empire jersey that my very first team wore, and my old 45/45 tank that needed to be hydro'd. Now when he gets the tank hydro'd he can give his old one to his little brother, so win win. Kid reminds me a lot of myself when i was his age.

Anyway Hebiki, how do you compare the nt11 to the clone VX? Especially since you've shot both?


No comparison.

Here's a quick "showdown" for you

CloneVX vs NT11

Ergonomics - Main grip: NT11
Ergonomics - Reg grip: Clone VX (because I like to tuck in my thumb... but i got so used to putting it on top/in front of the feedneck, i havent broken this habit yet)
Ergonomics - Grip comfort: NT11
Sound signature - CloneVX
Kick - CloneVX
Smoothness - CloneVX
Efficiency - CloneVX
Ease of maintenance: Tie (NT11 has less o-rings, but need tools to take it apart. CloneVX has more o-rings, but everything can be unscrewed by hand)
Cost: CloneVX
Visual Appeal: NT11 (duh.. im a dye cam whore... esp if you put the CF boomstick back with dye cam front on the barrel. :wub: )
Board: CloneVX
Packaging: Tie
Barrel: Tie (Dye barrels are pretty damn awesome.. but having inserts is really nice. Porting on the CloneVX is :tup: )
Barrel condom: CloneVX (Come on Dye.... you cant even print "Dye" on there??!?)

out of 14 points... 3 are tied. out of 11 points... 8 belong to the CloneVX :D

yah... but its the only marker i havent tried. plus trading a Luxe for a 2.1 will be easy. :)

once i try the Luxe and 2.1.... my goal of trying all the high end spoolies will be complete. and when the dust settles.... my cloneVX will still be there. :D
