Trilogy SF detent

26 February 2011 - 06:20 PM

For those that do not have a trilogy body that came with the SF frame, the detent hole is not threaded for normal autococker detents. Rather it's just a hole. I'm asking this because a buddy of mine bought a pump trilogy that didn't have a detent. Ball bearing isn't going to work because it would just fall through the hole. Is there a place to get a trilogy detent like the one in the picture (my trilogy pump taken apart for illustration). Has anyone modified a body to take normal autococker detents?

Is an 05 Ego worth fixing?

09 February 2011 - 08:48 PM

So I believe my 05 may have a bad solenoid. I've replaced all the o-rings, rebuilt the QEVs, put it all back to factory settings (minus the addition of a virtue board), and re-lubed everything. But I'm still ending up with low and inconsistent velocities. I took a look at the solenoid and there appears to be damage where the screws have contacted the solenoid body. IF this is the cause of my misery, it would cost $125 to replace it with a new piece. If it fixes the problems, I would have a very nice back up marker to my G6R. Anyone think it's worth saving? Comments are welcome ;)

Mouse Problem

08 February 2011 - 09:18 PM

It's been cold where I am with temps staying well below freezing all day. I recently discovered a mouse has decided to live here. I heard him burrowing through my garage can while I watched a movie. I wasn't quick enough to catch him and he managed to escape. I also found that he likes eating paintballs, or rather, taking them from my bags and rolling them to a hiding place. There he munches a hole in them and feasts on the insides.

Paint has to stay in the house because it'll freeze in my truck if I take it with me. I didn't have a plastic container large enough to store my paint in and still be mouse proof so I had to come up with something else. I had the perfect container; a military 250 CRTG. 20mm ammo box. Overkill?

Mouse is still at large :dodgy:

New Toys!

02 February 2011 - 10:10 PM

Picked up a G6R and some Profits about a week ago. Not pictured: Empire 09 Liquid Hinge 3+6. Only had a chance to use them once so far because of the weather (lots of snow). Hopefully I'll be able to play some more soon, I'm going through withdrawal already.
