Making a Empire Sniper smoother

Hi guys,

It's probabally on the forum somewhere, but can't find a tread with the right info, so sorry in advange

But I'm playing with a Empire Sniper for almost a year now and I'm completly back to basic. I play with a sportshot and a Ninja 0,2 ltr bottle and a 100rnd backup pod in the pocket.

But how do I get more air reduced, because I'm playing with a small bottle so need to spare every bit of air possible

But more important is how do I get it more quit? I heard about a other bolt or polish the internals or warm the spring to make it stiffer or other barrel. So I don't know where to begin or what is the most effective/easiest upgrade.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Use different spring combinations

Remove the return spring from the handle

Also maybe use a different valve such as the palmers lt

I'm not sure what the valve spring size is but the hammer spring is the same as autococker ones if I remember correct

The Check-It upgrade kit was kinda a rip off. The 'LP valve' they included was just a stock Trilogy valve, and their bolt didn't offer better flow over the stock bolt. The only part that made a worth-while difference was the SS pump guide, which can be found here:

Check It Empire Sniper Pump Gun Polished Center Guide Rod #28 - Stainless

I'd suggest buying that pump guide, a Palmer Trilogy LT valve, and a set of Madman autococker springs. The SS pump guide will reduce friction while pumping. The LT valve opens easier than any non-balenced valve out there, which leads to lighter springs and a smoother pump stroke. The springs are self-explanatory lol.

Those parts will only cost you around $80; Check-It charged over $100 for their kit when they had them in stock...they must have ran out of Trilogy valves lol.

Edit: I forgot the Check-It bolt does only have 2 orings instead of 3, which would reduce drag. But the same can be achieved by simply removing the front oring on the stock bolt or replacing it with an 014 that will not drag as much.

The PPS LT valve for trilogy will basically be the best thing you can do. It should include a valve spring, and you should use that as a starting point and use a hammer spring that yields the velocity you desire.
