lol, you cover over here too. i've posted over at montneel too. the problem with co2 in my z is that it won't work after mo converted it to air. i'd probably really hurt someone. i'd use co2 but it would mean a complete conversion back and mo didn't give me back the parts so i'm stuck. there's nothing like the frost bite when you shoot a z. lol

I converted one my mine from Nitro-Z, back to Co2.
As you noted, the parts no longer exist.

What I had to do was pick up a "near death" Rental-Z from Blue, at EMR. I stripped the W-valve, and hammer, and swapped then in. I then replaced the LPC with a super-short macroline.

Works perfect, though I'd rather have a hardline, or at least a stainless braided line.

if you don't want them, i could use them. maybe donaldson has spare parts laying around? i don't think heff has any. i wonder if mo still has the old parts? lol

i thought after winning the 94 worldcup we would have like lifetime parts and service for our guns. terrible, i'm reduced to scrapping parts from other guns. lol had iknown, i would of stocked up a life time supply!

Ummm...You could PM Ladymarshal, have her ask Jim.
After all, he was the one who made the parts the first time.

That is the story he likes to tell.
Jim was never involved with Montneel, but did work on projects before Montneel was created (like the J-Mark pump).

He did, however, work on the USI Eliminator. The notorious clone.

Dana, Montneel does actually exist in limited form. The current owner Perry makes limited runs of critical parts every year (ie valves, sears, etc). The only deterent is he charges 1996 prices.

I was actually quoted $300 for a single sear.
