upgrades for nxt shocker
Posted 19 October 2013 - 12:51 AM
i'm looking to see how i can make it a smooth shooting gun, idk if quietness can play a factor into this as well. its a stock shocker.

The biggest change will come from increasing the volume of the dump chamber, and adding a spring to the engine. Since it is an NXT shocker, a low pressure can is out of the question due to the body cuts, so you can either mod your stock bolt guide for low pressure, or buy a Pooty LP bolt guide. You can then either have the stock bolt modified to accept a Rhino spring, or purchase existing bolts that are ready for one, like an Eigenbolt or a Pooty bolt.
IMO, the "ultimate" internals for the shocker that you can just drop in are an Eigenbolt and a Pooty LP bolt guide. The Eigenbolt will drastically increase the efficiency of the setup without affecting the shot quality, and the Pooty bolt guide will drop the pressure significantly as well, translating to a softer sounding and slightly smoother shot.
There are other little tweaks and things, but they don't do much.

thanks where would i find Eigenbolt? i know where to find a pooty bolt.

what about cams? should they be upgraded? if i get the Eigenbolt, is it still possible to put the rhino spring on the bolt?

The Eigenbolt comes with a Rhino spring, so you don't have to worry about that.
When you say cams, do you mean cans? Like the firing can and/or bolt sleeve? Ideally you'd get an SFT can, since that's just a tad more volume than an HE firing can, but that's not very important if you're going to be putting a Pooty guide in the gun. The stock bolt sleeve is fine as well.

lol sorry i meant cans, but would i need to use a slp tank? also can i put a different reg on the gun?
Posted 19 October 2013 - 06:08 PM
You'll be able to use pretty much any standard pressure tank, and any standard reg will work. My favorite is the Bob Long 360 reg just because of how it looks, but you can basically use anything.

Shockers are absolutely amazing guns when you set them up properly. If you really end up liking this one you can always build your own out of parts. Ideally you should look for a sealed aftermarket body such as the Naughty Dogs, which consequently is also cocker threaded.

Naughty Dogs was an old pro team that has since disbanded, but the bodies can only be found used, as they haven't been made for quite a few years.

ah okay i see, but where would they sell bodys for the nxt? i havent seen one in techpb forums

The only places to get Shocker bodies and/or guns is either on the various paintball BSTs or eBay, since they are a discontinued gun from an out of business company.

Skip the pooty crap, its just NDZ items reannoed and with a price increase. Run NDZ ULP can with the NDZ Bolt guide, and stock bolt, its the easiest, lowest maintenance setup. The eigenbolt is supposed to be good but i havent tested it so i wont comment.
