From the Attic - Episode 7 - 12 Gram Efficiency

Episode 7 is now up online. I spent most of the evening going through 90 minutes of film to cut this up... Running time is about 6 minutes. Part of me feels like it is still too long, but on the other hand I feel like I didn't go over enough.

People will get the point.

Can be viewed at the usual spots:

YouTube: YouTube - From the Attic - Nelson paintball gun 12 gram efficiency

MCBtv: Mcbtv - From The Attic - Nelson Paintball Gun 12 Gram Efficiency


Recipe to follow along:

Parts List:
LAPCO Ultralight Hammer
Adjustable Bolt
#6 Power Tube
Yellow (Light) Main Spring
Red (Heavy) Valve Spring

Make sure the adjustable bolt has been adjusted roughly 1/2 way.

Your marker should be clean, and all the parts polished to be very smooth to keep friction at a minimum. A few drops of oil, and you're ready.

The most efficient setup is via the rear ASA, and not a VSC, or vertical stock class setup.

I have all the FPS numbers down on a sheet from both times, and will probably do up a nice easy to read html page with pictures to go along with the video.


Enjoy!!

Great episode! I love the idea of just taking out a junk drawer and slapping a gun together. If you have other various marker bins, you should put more mutts together. Makes for good TV.

Aftermarket power tube? Well, each one has it's own charm. Carter power tubes are thought as some of the best with it's 3 tapered holes for passing the air through as opposed to 2 holes with no tapering.

I used a LAPCO # 6 power tube. It's the widest / largest one available today. It will allow the most amount of air to pass through it in a short period of time, keeping any bottle necking down.

A smaller one will work for you, you'll just need to have a stronger main spring possibly.

Each gun is a little different so some personal tweaks may be needed.



Surprisingly I didn't own a chrono for the longest time. Now that I have one, I actually use it quite often. Even a real cheapy one will at least give you an idea.

Very nice! I really should see how efficeint my phantom is, I never have sat down to see how many shots I can get, I usually just change somewhere between 20-30 depending, on how close the opposing team is. i might be able to bump it up to 30-40.


Must be nice to have enough parts lying around to build a marker in a few minutes.

Is there a sheridan eficiency video in the works?

Carter, how quick did you shoot those shots? in other words, how long between shots?

Pretty fast, but not too fast. I'd say a 3 to 5 second lag. That's why I didn't put a hopper on, so it would force me to shoot a little slower. I explained it all at one point, but left it out of the video due to time constraints.

Basically I had about 5 or 6 paintballs in one hand... Drop one in, pump, reset the chrono, and line up and fire. Then repeat

So however long it takes to do that. 3 to 5 seconds.
