Dwell setting and ball breaks

12 September 2009 - 05:02 PM

hey guys, I have a G3 with the TechT bolt engine, I set the dwell down to 12ms. The gun is shooting pretty good, it is using ALOT less air - however, I seem to be breaking many many more balls than I should be. I dont shoot really cheap wal-mart paint. I shoot Draxxus Blaze. will setting the dwell too low cause breaks?

Thanks guys!

Smoke from barrel

10 September 2009 - 02:51 PM

Howdy guys,

I have a G3 with the TechT bolt engine, some sort of upgraded trigger, a PSI regulator gage, and a 68/4500 HPA tank.

I was shooting at a guy the other day that was running away. Naturally I was shooting as fast as I could pull the trigger (was shooting Semi). I noticed some smoke / mist comeing from my barrel. I didn't notice any decrease in performance, but I was under the assumption that smoke only came from Co2. Was I mistaken? Why is my gun smoking?

-thanks guys!

Operating Pressure

29 August 2009 - 05:57 PM

Hello all!

i was just out playing paintball and someone mentioned something about "what operating pressure are you at?" I though he was talking Velocity. But now I remember that the G3 has a 180PSI Operating Pressure. I seem to be using alot of Air when I shoot - and this gentleman said it would be more efficient if I lower the OP. I also, just bought the Techt Bolt, and it says you can lower your operating pressure to 180 and still maintain a 280 velocity since it is so light weight.

my question is...

How do I set the operating pressure? the only other person I know with a G3 has no idea what I am talking about. I read the manual it says that you CAN change it - but it doesn't say how. It says you need a HPR gauge, which I suppose I will buy but I still have no idea how to change it - which screw to use?

Anyone know?

Thanks guys!

Dragon Man's

20 August 2009 - 12:12 PM

hey,

I just wanted to put this one up there for anyone looking for a pretty good place to play here in Colorado Springs.

Dragon Man's has 5 paintball fields, as well as super cross tracks (motor cross? whichever one has motorcycles and stuff) they also have a Gun range, and he has hundreds appon hundreds of different rental guns (real, not paintball)

They have tippmann 98's for rentals, They are VERY strict on safety (yay!)
and dragon's wife will not hesitate to boot you off the fields for the day if you forget to put your mask on before entering.

Its very... woods ball oriented. tires and old cars to hide behind and stuff.

As of Aug 2009 it is $24.00 for rental equip per person, and $12.00 Field fee if you have your own equip.
They allow outside paint.
