G3 HPR

23 May 2010 - 11:49 AM

All,

Just had a quick question about the G3. I have a relatively new, stock G3 and one thing I've noticed with it is that when I go to CHrono it, I get results anywhere from 260-285 (280 is our field limit) without changing the setting at all. Is this normal? This is obviously causing some MAJOR shot drop-off mid-stream which is a bit of a nuisance.

Also, when the gun was brand new, I did not think to lube the HPR since I assumed (probably mistakenly) that the gun would have arrived in a "ready to fire" state. So I took it out a couple times before I lubed the HPR. (I was lubing the bolt after each day though.) Later I broke it down and lubed the HPR with Hater Marmalade but am still seeing the issue.

So what are your thoughts? Is a 25 fps variance normal? Is there something wrong with my HPR? I have heard people have had troubles with their HPR's, but I thought that was only on the older G3's.

Thanks for any insight or advice.

Paintball Staining...?

08 May 2010 - 12:08 AM

Alright, so for years and years, I've heard paintballs don't stain.. And generally... I've found that to be true. Every time I've played before, I wore whatever I wanted and never had a problem. But those fields were all FPO.

But the last few weeks, I've gone to Fox (Which allows BYOP), and someone must be shooting some real trash for paint because it's staining EVERYTHING.

My black hoodie has what looks like grease stains on it now.. My brand new Empire jersey has some lovely pink and green that refuses to come out. (Big deal it's a jersey.)

Anyway, what do you guys do to clean your stuff? I washed all of these things as soon as I got home, and these stains are really holding their own.

I'm not worried about my paintball gear, obviously. It's going to get stained, that's the name of the game. But having my hoodie ruined kind of sucked, and also I've been trying to get my sisters to come out and play more often, but if they think their stuff is going to get stained, they're going to be way less likely to come out.

It also occurred to me later, that I have a high-efficiency washer, so maybe it's just not using enough water to get the crap out. I could try soaking it in a bucket or something before actually putting it in the washer.

Recommendations?

Thanks.

Sunday Scheduling

06 May 2010 - 01:13 PM

Hi guys,

Just a quick question, I wanted y'all thoughts on this. I am considering going to LL3 (and possibly joining the Lynch Mob), but I have a slight hangup.

I have church on Sunday morning, which doesn't get out until 11.30 am. So the only thing I could make it for on Sunday would be the final battle (if I hauled OUT!) and the aftermath of that.
I could of course play all day Saturday, but I'd miss most of the action on Sunday.

Is it still worth it to go? (I've never been to LL before.) Am I missing that much, or is it not really a big deal to miss Sunday morning?

Thanks,

Nyx

Ironmen Trigger on the NT / DM10

05 May 2010 - 10:15 AM

So, I was in the shop at Action Village the other day, and they have an NT up on the wall that they'll let you hold and fiddle with if you want.. Let me just say.. That trigger is awesome..
It just feels flat out perfect to me. I sat there and played with it for a few minutes, and it is a lot easier (for me) to walk properly than some of the other triggers I've seen..

So my question is: Does anyone know how it's made? What's special about it that gives it that feel? I don't have a DM or an NT and I'm not about to shell out 1300-1700$ for one either, but I'd love to know how it works so I can figure out what might feel similar in my next gun.

Thanks.

Contact Info for Lament?

20 April 2010 - 10:31 AM

Does anyone have contact information for Lament? He was supposedly selling me a G3. (See thread below.)

http://www.techpb.co...showtopic=80292

In any case.. The money order was confirmed as arrived APR 08, and the bank has confirmed that he has cashed the money order. He has not logged in since the 8th when he told me he had not received it, and I have not heard anything more from him.

Needless to say, I am very concerned.

Does anyone have information for reaching him?

Thanks.
