In Topic: TechT Bolt for SP-1 & Vibe Blackheart Tips, Settings and Tricks

21 May 2010 - 05:45 PM

Hi, finally get the SP-1 BH and installed it. TechT L7v2 bolat have already installed. But problem is, that I don't know, if the dwell time is counted simply - 1 trigger pull - 1 ms, or it starts with 5 ms and 1 trigger pull adds 1 ms (dwell = 5 + number of trigger pulls). And I also switched off the FSDO as Mike says (entered programming mode, entered the FSDO setting, entered by long trigger pull ane then i didn't pull the trigger, so it should be set to 0 (?????)), but the first shot is really weak. Sometimes it just fall out of barrel.

So how to set it right?

Thanks for reply.

From what was told to me, if you leave it as a default (i.e 0 blinks), it defaults to 5ms. However, once you begin pulling the trigger, the MS is per trigger pull. So, 15 pulls = 15ms.

I also switched off FSDO (with a 15ms dwell) and every couple of shots would "bloop" out of the barrel. I switched it back to 5ms (default), but I could probably pull that down to 4 or 3. So, for the moment, with the same setup as you, I have mine set for 15ms dwell & 5ms FSDO. Everything seems to be working fine and I'm well above the efficiency of a stock SP1.

In Topic: Thread adapters have an impact on smaller bore barrels?

21 May 2010 - 12:03 PM

I would never suggest putting a small bore section after a large bore section. The resulting lip can't be good for paint.

Thats exactly what I was thinking. The Lapco thread adapter is likely .691 or close. And then put on the .685 barrel.

Azodin KP = AC threads.
SP1 = Ion threads.
CP .685 barrel = Ion threads.

Originally I was going to pick up that thread adapter so I could use the single barrel between the two markers, but then thinking about the above inquiry had me concerned. So, I just picked up a new barrel instead. But I was wondering if those concerns were valid. Your reply seems to say they have merit.

In Topic: Marker vs. Gun

23 April 2010 - 07:53 PM

I'll always begin my participation by saying markers. It typically evolves into saying "gun" by whatever respective group/individual I'm speaking with anyway as more often than not, most people are relatively understanding that even though some of us like to play dress up and have a lovely mil-sim looking theme going on, at the end of the day, the "gun" in our hands still only shoots balls of goop.

To be hard nosed about it one way or another, however, is somewhat limiting to a productive conversation.

In Topic: I've heard the good, whats the bad? SP1

04 April 2010 - 06:15 PM

I've had two SP-1's.

Ran off Co2, using remote line. Worked great. Over 1k rounds off a single tank, easily. I personally didn't think the stock barrel was that loud. I swapped it out for a stock Ion barrel and a 12" SP Progressive barrel and still didn't notice a difference in sound. Everyone calls my marker then "pew pew" gun because of how it sounds when it fires. Most breaks ended up being barrel breaks, but I can't recall more than a half a dozen in the two years I had it.

With a 90/4500 HPA tank, I was getting roughly 900-1100 shots. I eventually got an itch to make it more efficient, so I ended up trading it in for an OEM Blackheart model.

Picked up an Evil Pipe 2 piece set, .685 bore back (which I think is causing barrel breaks, more testing is needed) and a TechT L7 v.2 bolt. I originally set the dwell/FDOS per Mike's instructions, but it would "bloop" shots, so I set it at 15ms and I returned the FDOS back to 5ms. I could probably tweak that lower, however, but it's running good as is. We typically run between 285-300fps and off a 90/4500 HPA tank, I can get anywhere from 1400-1600 shots in this current setup.

Whats bad about the SP1?
Air efficiency is pretty bad, but if you have a constant air source (field for HPA or a few Co2 tanks), you'll obviously be fine. I have two 90's and I play out in the middle of nowhere. I need those tanks to last me at least a case of paint.

My original SP1 would freeze with Co2 in the winter if I uses 3rd burst or auto for longer than a few minutes of play at a time. Temps don't get that cold here (high 20's, low 30's in the coldest of winter in our area and still willing to play ball), so I was kinda bummed. Which is one of the reasons I switched to HPA. I knew that it had a safety mechanism, so it wasn't really a surprise, but I guess I was expecting more.

My previous marker was an A5, so I miss the off center feed system and low profile of the cyclone. I currently run a Tippmann SSL-200, which is an ok hopper for low profile. I like the look of the Rotor on it, but I'm not willing to plunk down $150 for a few BPS increase and lower profile for woodsball when we don't count gun hits in our games.

The side rails are glued on. I had to Gorilla Glue one of them back on because it started to come off one a corner. I rather had them screwed in.

Cleaning the front end of the breach is kind of a PitA. Those little slots get a couple of hits and I'll be scrubbing that area for some time unless I do a full tear down. I rather had it a solid piece, front to back.

Past that, I can't really think of anything else that bothers me. It's a light marker (compared to the milsim of my A5 setup I was previously running...your mileage may vary), the shell is super tough, it's extremely easy to maintain and easy to tear apart (on par with the A5, if not easier because it has less parts that can fall out), so I'd fully recommend it.

Unless you have a need to exceed 11bps or change modes beyond 3rd burst/auto or have a drive to "hyper-mile" your air efficiency, there isn't really any need to upgrade to the Blackheart and/or TechT bolt. The stock SP-1 was/is still a fantastic marker.

just get a .685 CP and call it a day

x2. Or a 2 piece with a .679 back if you have cash burning a hole in your pocket.

Picked up an Evil Pipe 2 piece kit with a .685 back for less than $20 bones to play with in the mean time. Hope it provides some positive results!
