T2 Slot Blocker
 
I started this project because I was having fps issues with my T2 due to the hammer getting dirty from debris falling in lower tube while playing. I noticed when the bolt was closed in the firing position the hammer slot was allowing any debris to get onto the hammer, due to it being exposed and unprotected. I found anything that made its way into the lower tube through the exposed hammer slot, no matter what it was resulted in fps lost. I was told to remove my hammer, clean it,and dry it, then reinstall it. This did fix the problem but only temporarily until something else would make its way into the slot. This problem was a result of having such perfect tolerances between the hammer and the lower tube, which I love about the T2. I hated fixing this issue every time I got debris in the exposed slot though. So I called Ccm to get a solution and I was sent to Rod to get my answers. Rod liked my idea and said Ccm didn't have plans on producing something like this and it was okay if I made my part. I called many times and was given many helpful suggestions and information. I had started the project to build a piece that would protect the exposed hammer slot, and still retain the aesthetic look of the T2. I wasn't alone in making this part, I had help from Richard Black my engineer/machinist and friend. Rick took the design and put it to the cad program for me. I now have the T2 slot blocker made by one of our own machinist here on MCB. They come back from the machinist then the polished parts are put through three vibrating tumblers and then buffed with white, red, and blue rouge for a mirror shine. The dust finish and the anodizing is done at Chico's metals which is the same company Ccm uses so I can get the best match possible. The T2 slot blocker is proudly made in the USA , and it is a world wide product. The T2 slot blocker works to keep your slot clean so you don't have to.

Past Issues:
I have had one problem with the screws that I bought for the slot blocker and that is that they were about 3/16 to long in some T2's but not all of them. I talked to Rod about this and he says its because the first run of T2 pump rods were not tapped as far in as the newer T2's are. So all screws are Torq heads and cut to the right length so there will be no issue.

WARNINGS:
Installing the slot blocker does not void your ccm T2 warranty. However ccm will not cover any parts under the warranty due to issues caused by the slot blocker, but will still continue providing warranty to the rest of your marker.

WHEN INSTALLING THE SLOT BLOCKER ON THE T2 MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS. THIS WILL CAUSE BINDING AND OTHER NEGATIVE ISSUES. IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES OR CONCERNS PLEASE CONTACT ME RIGHT AWAY. ALSO IF THE SCREW'S DON'T TIGHTEN DOWN ALL THE WAY DO NOT TRY TO FORCE THEM YOU MAY NEED A SHORTER SCREW/S PLEASE CONTACT ME RIGHT AWAY.

Torture test:
This T2 was put through hell by a snake player on pump team Total Grief. You all know him as Cody Skullet Ross.

He sent me this picture of his T2 after a day of play in St Louis sand/mud is the best way to describe whats on it and all over it. I was told the trigger doesn't even work right but the the lower tube is clean and there is no fps loss.

Greg Hastings has also let me know that his slot blocker "Works great".

INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTAllATION OF THE T2 SLOT BLOCKER
created for the T2 Paintball Marker Enclosed : T2 Slot Blocker and 2 Screws
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove stock T2 sled torque screws. Check pump rod threads for old debris or loctite.
2. Align slot blocker with the flat end facing the T2 sled, with the curved end facing the back of the gun.
3. There are two curved areas or radii cut into the slot blocker. Make sure the larger radii of the slot blocker faces down and the small radii faces up. IF this is placed incorrectly, you will cause the slot blocker to drag on the body.
4. Prepare the new longer torque screws included with the slot blocker using blue Loctite. Only the ends are to be coated in blue Loctite as if you were doing it on the stock T2 sled screws for installation.
5. Ensure all parts are straight, and free of binding,or rubbing. Tighten down screws adequately, make sure all parts remain properly aligned.
6. Test by pumping to make sure there is no contact of the slot blocker with the body.
7. Go play some paintball with your T2 and now your slot will not get dirty! (c) Mike Pederson 2011
