Earon uses main springs that have 10 coils and are a finer gauge. They are the same length as a Maddman spring. His valve springs are 8-9 coils with the same properties. But nelson length.
I mentioned that earlier too. Damn it.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

I had the A/T issue with mine and had a more or less unconventional solution recommended. It may sound random, but placing a small strip of electrical tape between the trigger frame and body completely fixed my A/T problem. I actually placed 2 very thin strips, one left, one right, leaving the center/moving parts unrestricted. The strips are 3 or 4 inches long and 1/8 inch wide. Problem fixed. Thanks Leafy.

Yes - to the extra force at the end of the stroke. I'm not sure what spring it has in it but it is a little longer than the one that came w/ the "new" set of internals. I've got a madman set so I'll have to compare. Thanks for the info - I love MCB for that very reason!

Interesting... wish I'da thought about doing something like that before doing the permanent mod that I did. Hindsight's a b!tch... Good info for others tho who will inevitably experience the same thing in thier buzzard in the future.

Realized I need to pick up a new rear frame screw too... the hex-slot is a little stripped so I think I'm not getting it torqued down good (allen key slips) which is leading to snub creap during game-play... not a big problem since I can now adjust the barrel to counter the creap, but ultimately an $0.18 bolt could help fix the problem - and then getting a set screw tapped in the top of the snub/valve would be another great addition in the future.

short... try a different set of allen wrenches on that back hex (maybe a bigger set with more smaller increments), I was able to get a perfect fit on that one every time.

I had to hit Home depot today to pick up a Torx driver set anyways, so I grabbed a set of replacement screws for $1... easy peasy
