Has anyone done MQ pump?

Has anyone on this site MQ'd their pump cocker? Was it worth the effort? Pics if you got em!

Here's mine...



Its very simple with a standard Eblade; just remove the clapper noid / sear from frame and then plug and play. Since there are no real moving internals, it's a super smooth pump stroke based on the quality of the pump kit only. I've got all the pieces to set it up as with a single trigger Angel frame, but its a lot more work to modify the board to accomodate and I'm lazy .

As far as worth, its a novelty. It won't come with any kind of autotrigger without major modification (but has been done in several different ways). I also find my MQ2 valve to be very finicky and heard numerous similar complaints about sticking poppits and inconsistent velocity swings. If you are up to some heavy tinkering, it can be a fun project that yields THE lightest pump stroke, but that's about it.

I have had my Karni set up as an mq pump. It is in an effort to make a very quiet setup. I did have some issues with the mq being a little bit inconsistent but i think it was due to my reg. I used the standard e2 frame with it but I also have an angel frame ready to be modded. I just need to pick up a board to throw in it. I really enjoyed the almost nonexistent pump stroke and it did succeed in making it more quiet.

Nonexistent. Though I believe that it is a bit ridiculous when people worry about kick on paintball guns. I have never shot a paintball gun that had "kick". Though that is probably the firearms shooter in me talking.

Carter has a Roundbody CCM one. I used it for a tournament. It is amazing. The nicest pump stroke I have ever felt.

Ever shot a 68 Special?

I've built a couple MQ snipers. Have loved them every time I've shot them. The only problem I had was adjusting the length of the pump stroke. Came up with an elegant solution.

Take a phantom return spring, throw it on the cocking rod, add a second buffer. It has the added benefit of still acting as a return spring, while taking up the slack.

If I was at home I'd take a picture of exactly what I did...

I like the phantom spring idea. What about something half blocked or mid blocked? I have a z-force and a 2k5black magic.

Your Black Magic is probably a 2k6, and as such doesn't use a standard cocker valve. It takes a 11/16 valve, the same that's in the trilogy line. There is a 11/16 MQ. I'm not exactly sure how a half/mid block would work. Just relying on the length of your pump stroke seems like it might not work as well.

Personally I replaced the stock valve in my 2k6 Black Magic with a Ego7? valve. I did have to mod it slightly, but it was well worth it. Great sound signature. Smooth shot. I recommend it if you can get a hold of the valve.
