That hardline mod on the stab is very very cool!

I actually wouldn't be able to. The entire valve needs to be free to move back and forth in order to work properly. The hardline may have enough flex, but I would be afraid of it eventually fatigue fracturing under all that cycling, especially if it was pressurized.

Still in the running. School started a few weeks ago, and I've been busy getting punched in the brain by lousy engineering teachers with thick middle eastern accents. Anyway, I've finished the exterior, and its really, REALLY pretty, but I'll just save those pics for later.


For now, more boring internals! YAY!

Before I started tweaking the gun, it had a problem with the bolt not catching the sear. I figured then that it was just the sear being worn, or the bolt. So I swapped the sear with the set that came out of the beat up Pro-Carbine, and I have the same problem. Ordered a new main spring, and that did nothing. On a whim, I replaced the hammer with my Factory F/A's hammer. Its slightly heavier, and worked well;




.27 pounds, Factory F/A Hammer



.22 pounds, Pro-Lite hammer





This brings me to a question; Is my Pro-Lite hammer supposed to look like someone plunged a 1" endmill into the side and then de-burred it with a bench grinder?



This is a picture of one I pulled from Tippmann Parts, it doesn't seem to have any milling done to the flat;






Can anyone confirm that my hammer has been ghetto lightened by a monkey with a mill and grinder?

I have some that look that rough, I think it is pretty normal for that pro-lite.
Why make that area smooth, as it does not contact anything.

but check out the milling compared to the pic of the one from Tippmann Parts. The latter has straight, rectangular cuts, whereas mine are radiused pockets.

yes, someone did something to yours. i'm thinking that someone wanted to do a ghetto AirTipps mod on the rear bolt or they thought they can do better than what they had.

now, would you be using the Stab as velocity adjustment? does the stock have a mainspring adjustment screw?

The reg is the velocity adjustment. Ive weighted the hammer back up and played with the valve springs, and its now working. Final pics will be up once the nameplate is finally done.

A friend officially named the build. It's now the Tippmann Pro-Heavy.
