Sometimes I do. I have a dremel as well. Modding the nut is certainly an option I'm just trying to see if there is an easier way

Sure, I can understand that. Other than finding out the major diameter and possibly the minor, and counting the threads and guestimating the tpi, I'm not sure if it would help.

I'm at lunch now, so I'll go into how I ground the stock one down.

I used a 1/4-20 allen head bolt, inserted into the valve nut, centering the bolt as best as I could (here is the possible f-up), and inserted a washer and nut and tightened it down.
I then inserted the bolt into a drill. While the drill was spinning the assembly, I put the "bowled" edge of the valve nut to a grinding wheel. Using the allen head of the bolt as a guide and watching to make sure the grinder didn't get a hold of the threads, I ground the edge down to the rough shape of the new seal edge.

When the grinder JUST started to grind the edge of the allen head, I took the assemble apart. I measured the diameter of the seal edge on the Trracer valve nut, and ground the head of the allen head to the same diameter (I can get that measurement for you when I get home). I reassembled the bolt/valve/washer/nut assembly; reinserted it into the drill; and with a medium grit flat file clamped to my work bench, spund the drill up, using the file's edge to bring the seal edge to its final shape; using the allen head again as the guide.

The file took the brass down at a steady rate; but didn't get into the allen head easily. The allen head worked well to prevent turning the edge down too far.

Being careful to keep the nut centered, it worked out and seals up just fine; but there was a chance that the nut could have became uncentered. If you are going to try this, I suggest doing this BEFORE drilling the center out to fit the Traccer PT. The stock hole is right at 1/4" diameter, and should make keeping the bolt centered a no brainer.

I did buy that thing, yes. The only parts i compared was the drop-out changer valve, and its stock barrel (aluminum with brass bore, it was keen beans).

Drop-out changer valve did not fit the Hammer 7 body, and the iiSports Hammer, while being spyder-threaded, it's barrel did not thread completely onto the Hammer 7 breech. I was perplexed.

Can't do any internal comparisons now, though, since i JUST sold the iiSports Hammer.

Did you see the last two in the paintball news thread? Those are baddass!! That one with the aftermarket stock took some cajones to cut the grip up like that. It's paid off, to be for sure.

I think ebay offered some of the ii hammer parts individually could be worth a shot ill check now. But bacci doesn't have an hammer valve nuts. Unless the hammer nuts share a thread type with another nelson that he lumped together into that pile. For all I know it's the same as say a razor back or etc

Yuppers.

http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item...d=380531156628

Why can't dealers list specs as part of the descriptions

They also have the old styled brass cup seals and a few other odd and end Individual parts

I think we've hit paydirt, Keebler.

I installed the Trracer main spring, and the blending stopped. I have one of those hand held yellow radars; and I read 320fps for the first shot. The rest were in the 290fps range, with a couple spikes in the 300's.

Then I loaded a second mag, and was reading 250fps, with spikes in the 400's! I think I need a new battery. I was able to get through the second clip and 3 shots into a third (19 shots total) before velocity dropped off into the 220's. I'm hoping now that a regulator will help flatten and lengthen the shot count and speed.
