In Topic: good barrel advice please

18 April 2012 - 03:19 PM

The good advice would be not to bother with a kit.

You'd be spending upwards of $100 and using 1 or 2 backs, the rest will be wasted money sitting in your gear bag. Personally, I would suggest a CP 14" 1 piece with a .683 or .685 bore if you absolutely need a new barrel. Having the barrel be bigger than the paint (otherwise known as overboring) isn't much of an issue, unless you're using a pump or autococker. The kit that you found, the sniper barrel kit, I am assuming was designed for the Empire Sniper pump gun, which is why it has such small bores, so as to not allow the paint to roll out prematurely.

Yep, you're fine. Just remove the shims from the Ninja reg, adjusting it down to Low pressure. The G6r can run at high pressures, however, that runs a higher risk of breaking some of the interior seals in the marker.

If your Alias is leaking from the front of the LPR, definitely inspect the LPR piston orings. If they are damaged at all, replace them, if not, lube them up with some Dow 55. If you follow the path that air can take in order to leak from this spot, these orings are all that stops the air from leaking out the LPR, so theoretically, this should fix the leak. Also, if you've been experiencing fluctuations in the LPR reading, this may have been going on since before the massive leak you've described.

As for your ram, if it hasn't been, or isn't an issue, there's no need to change it. And, assuming you bought the Alias new in 2005, it's probably configured to work correctly with the bumperless ram instead of the "spiked" ram.

Getting to know a marker will help you immensely in being able to diagnose issues that it's having. I would say fixing this one up is a perfect opportunity to do so. Most of the issues described appear to be very simple and inexpensive fixes. There's no point in sending it to BLAST to spend ~$100 when all you need to do is change orings and get new detents. Although I'm not as familiar with the Marq line as I am with the Intimidator line, this shouldn't be too expensive to fix. Your biggest hassle will be getting the eye cover screws off and replacing them. As Latsabb mentioned, you will probably be able to make these repairs yourself. This will give you a great sense of accomplishment in breathing new life into a marker that doesn't work, and make you more comfortable with getting in there and fixing it yourself.

To avoid this in the future, learn to do maintenance on your marker yourself. Since it's already out of warranty, there's nothing that they will do that you can't easily do yourself. An o-ring kit, some lube, and even just the pillow for the bolt will cost you fractions of the price of having it sent in. Give yourself a couple hours, a flat clean surface, your marker's manual, and maybe an exploded view of your marker, and you can have it working in top condition without having to pay anyone to do it. Plus, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you put a little piece of yourself into making it shoot so well. And, if you run into a lot of problems, you always have people to fall back on here, and if it's simple enough BLAST will just walk you through it over the phone.
