Might need to play around with springing / valves to get the velocity to a useable range in 55 cal.

Ya know, I wasn't sure if I was crazy. Sure as shootin', the last few bounced. I tore the poor gun a new one. I rebuilt the valve, ran a new external micro line and now I'm running nitrogen. Much better now.

w00t!

I'm currently having the barrel liner conversion mfgrd and waiting for the new 55cal clips to go into production.
So, besides the barrel liner and the 55cal clips, what else is being done for converstion?

Nothing else appears necessary at this point.

The paintballs bouncing was due to a leak in the internal air line between the CA adaptor and the valve. Since pressure couldn't keep up on a 5 round burst, the last few balls sorta plopped out of the barrel. The line finally burst a little while ago. Also, upon pulling the valve apart, it looked like there were some chewed up seals which I also replaced.

At that point I said screw it, and did some serious work on the air system and upgraded to nitrogen coming off a bottom line. The gun was originally meant to run on liquid/siphon CO2 as it needed that extra boost to keep up with the ROF. The flip side to this appears that the CO2 system will eventually freeze up and lower available pressure. Thats why I went to HPA.

Did that make sense? I haven't slept in two days or so.

If you are selling services or goods this is not the forum for it putting it in one of the classified sections with specifics is much better. This will remain for discussion only.

If one gets the conversion, where can you buy the paint?

Can I please add this video to the MCB TV section? Love it. And this post.. no problem.

If you want to sell a service lets say... Post so in the custom or dealers forum. Either way, it's fine by me.

Nice job.

How about you give me another day or two and I'll get a better video up? I'd like to have a more proper one if you're gonna do something with it.

I knew we talked about this earlier this year. Old thread on converting
It starts after the 3rd post or so. I'd love to know how you did this and how much it might cost. Right now yo can get smg's pretty cheap because there's no paint but if this gets out...
