A few updates:

1. New trigger. The stock one was sticking and bouncing like crazy. Had to be fixed, so in goes an Acid Customs trigger. Much, much better.
2. New back steel cap for the bolt. After all the cycling, the aluminum cap was aging as well as a middle age coke whore. The tool steel should handle the pounding much better.
3. Durocoat in gloss black. Looks pretty nice.
4. Screw in place of the pin with an o-ring to lock the bolt into place. I'd rather not have it fly out of the gun anymore.

Still needs some timing work. I'll take it to the field again. Here she is now.

Could we maybe get a shooting video? I'm just interested to see it run.

The shooting video is a great idea... Considering how much effort was put into this marker, I am sure that Yoda900 would want to see it work

Next time I'm out playing or up at Pev's, I'm all for it. I'll need a cameraman Ty. I'll shoot it next to the westwood for sound contrast. And maybe next to the epic with a trumpet barrel.

I've seen it work - it's always just self destructed shortly after It'll be nice to see it going happily. Or angrily, which it certainly sounds like when it cycles.

My camera won't survive the awful noise the Epic and trumpet barrel make... Think 22LR loud, folks.

Well, bit of an update. Got the bolt to stop with the blowback, and got the spring to live through quite a bit of cycling. Need to run paint through it to see if it's still got the ball clipping issue. Here's how she looks now.

do you think your issue could be with under boring? you said that the barrel size was .678 which for the majority of paint is small. have your tried hand selecting paint that was under .678?

not sure if you tried this or not
