In Topic: Airsoft goggles in paintball

21 August 2015 - 03:51 PM

Airsoft BBs are about 10 times lighter than paintballs. A paintball at 300 fps will have about 13.3 joules of energy. A .25 gram BB at 400 feet per second has about 1.9 joules, or only about 14% of the energy of a paintball. Airsoft equipment is not designed to put up with the massive impact increase that comes from paintballs. If you don't use a full coverage paintball mask, you're gonna have a bad time.

If the SLG works, and works consistently then you should be OK. I have yet to see an SLG that always "just worked" though.


In Topic: DP G3 HPR Screw Extremely Tight

11 August 2015 - 09:59 PM

DP is most definitely still around, they didn't go anywhere. I just got some random stuff from them to fix a couple of their guns a few months ago.

 

As for the reg screw, what's interesting is that it's only hard to turn when the gun is pressurized, because even with pressure it shouldn't have any problems. Though I do remember with my old G3 I would have to hold the reg itself when I adjusted it, G3 regs just never really stayed screwed into the gun. Even with a freely rotating adjustment screw if I backed it out I'd have to make sure the rest of the reg didn't come with it. With no air in the gun does it freely turn, or is it still somewhat hard just less so than with air? Does the reg have the red or silver piston in it? Also, lubing the screw is fine, but once this gets figured out and it's easy to turn again you probably want to clean it off to keep it from backing out on its own.

It's like taking apart any other part of the gun.

Can you take apart the trigger valve and see if everything inside looks good to go?
