Velocity adjuster

The plastic tip on my velocity adjuster was destroyed by the tpc, wtf...


Im planning on an open face tpc but was wondering why the stock one on the bolt won't move. I'll be disassembling later to diagnose the current setup.

1 of 2 things... either the nylon Grub screw (TPC set screw) is WAY to tight... or if you're trying to lower the velocity, it's as low as it will go and the TPC is as far forward as it can go in the bolt... OR, you could have dirt/debry wedged in the threads of the TPC/bolt that might also be preventing it from moving; did you have a bad "break" recently?

I've experienced a destroyed vel. adjuster head before due to reason #1

Still gotta take it apart. I'm away from the marker right now. I'm gonna guess the Set screw as well right now. It was a marker I received recently. Its shooting fine but this is one of the few markers I haven't disassembled upon recieving. I always tear things apart when I get them. This wasn't one of em.

Second post. Ok I found my problem:

The oring on the current tpc is bunched up in the grub screw hole, dangit...



currently not budging even with the tool. Gonna use a regular screwdriver and see if I can get it out. I want an open face tpc and a silver mainspring. Like alot of you I'm going for efficiency on my 12ies.

Do you have an oring pick. That might work to get it out. I keep my grub screw in just not tightened down; it'll helps prevent that from happening.

After some tinkering I got the tpc out. The o ring was dead, like dry and disintegrating. Put the tpc back in and played with the grub screw to get acceptable feedback on the tpc while adjusting. Getting exactly 30 shots before noticeable drop off with a red mainspring. I still want an open face tpc in there because I want hpa.

Yeah this will happen if you take it all the way out. I found out the hard way too. Leave it in just enough to block the hole

I understand that now. I encountered the issue after I bought it. I'm running without the o ring currently, I have a shooting video on the redux page. It was done shortly after diagnosing and solving the issue then reassembling the whole thing. Shoots fine as far as I can tell. I currently have the grub screw to hold the tpc in place while still letting me make adjustments with my (now somewhat busted plastic tip) velocity rod.

While on the velocity adjuster or bolt subject. Do you guys know why Mike designed the tpc so that you need a special tool for it? That is the one thing that i like\love about the asp design, you can use a hex tool to adjust your velocity. It seems that he wants to do the same thing with the revolution but this is just out of curiosity.

You can always use a long flathead screwdriver. For my other open face tpc I have the adjuster tool because none of my current hex tools are long enough.
