Just to make sure we are covering everything, what hopper are you using? IIRC 8 bps is about the best you can get out of a gravity fed hopper.

I would assume that people can get back stolen gear?

yeah, just look on craigslists, alert feilds and forms, not that hard


Have you done it? As long as the person isn't stupid enough to put everything up for sale as a single lot then you're highly unlikely to find your stuff and it's next to impossible to prove that it's yours. You MIGHT be able to find the markers if you recorded the serial numbers, but even then what's to say that the person advertises it locally, puts it up for sale right away, or even advertises it as for sale at all? They may have a friend who buys it off of them.


To the OP; what attributes do you look for in a gun? What are you willing to compromise on? There's a wealth of used stuff out there at the $800 price point.

They operate identically, but the TM7 bolt is a little longer than a Mini bolt and not compatible.

I didn't realize that. It's a good thing I never got around to purchasing a boss bolt or techt while I had the TM-7 then.

Getting back to the OP, if you're anything like me then you have already gotten impatient and picked something up, but from what you are saying you want, I would suggest getting an older high end spoolie. There were a couple of guys at my old field who rocked DM7 (or thereabouts anyway). Axes/minis can also be very quiet (I had a TM-7 which works on the same internals, with a deadlywinds barrel on it that thing got scary quiet) so if you like the ergonomics of either of those feel free to pick one up. I've shot axes and they felt pretty good to me, the mini however didn't fit my hands at all, so I can't really comment on how well it shot.

Yeah when I first got my rotor I was still using a $60 Canadian Tire marker (same kinda thing you'd find at Walmart). No matter what marker the rotor goes on it will be applying a feeding force while the marker is not shooting, so the force is set low enough to not damage the paint during this static point. Since the paint is moving through when the marker is shooting the 'rest' state is the highest load on the paint (in terms of hopper load), so it doesn't matter what marker the rotor is on, it will be fine.


Sorry, being the morning it is difficult for me to clearly describe what I mean, but I hope people can understand what I'm trying to say.


I believe that the force the rotor applies is adjustable, so if you do have any issues (not that I've ever heard of this happening) then you can just adjust the force down until it works properly. Again, since I have never encountered this issue I haven't looked at how to adjust it.
