Gun pending to tx aggie.
But just to answer the questions
Yes she is ready to go. I shot several folks with her just last weekend and also used WAY TOO much paint.
The thing in front of the pump handele is a clamp that serves as a forward stop for the itty bitty short pump stroke. When I got the gun this clamp was turned 180 degrees around the barrel but I found that I got more use out of the pa/autotrigger combination by inverting the clamp to allow better access to the front bottom of the pump. This allowed me to walk the pump with all my fingers. I did once shoot over the ball counter and scored 7bps with out even trying hard.
Thanks for the though shives but tx_aggie beat you to it. I do still hope we can meet sometime and shot some jello at one another. Maybe during Keenland's fall meet.
