mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

The Gnob serves the same purpose as the CCI detent rings, except you don't have to size it to the paintball caliber. I can't see any point in wedgiting a barrel for a Ghost that doesn't need it.

I understand how the Gnob should help with double feeds, but how will the ball keep from rolling out of the barrel once chambered?
Lapco currently provides three barrels. Micro shot being the tightest bore available, but I don't think that it's available gor the GG. But is it substantial enough against roll outs when current field paint sizes are so small?
Unfortunately, I'm still faithless with Lapco, and feel that support for the GG may remain non existant to slow at best. That is... The question!

It sits past the ball once it's chambered, keeping it from rolling out. Kind of like the Galactic Z Mag, but without intending to cause backspin.

That sounds good, though my experience with silicon gnubbins has taught me that they hardly last no more then just a couple of hundred rounds or so... Can anyone who's been privileged enough to have some experience with this, please add to just how they feel about the Gnob? Or did Russc just do so?

Couple of things:

as an original ghost owner (who is still looking for replacement parts for internals - valve tube, cup seal, bolt and lt wt hammer) I can tell you that I spent many, many, many hours tweaking Ghosts and that the way to get the best performance out of one in terms of consistent velocity AND numerous shots from a 12-gram is to precisely balance the valve spring with the main spring.

I don't know how springs are being shipped these days, but basically (old skool) if you can use a red and a red or a yellow and a yellow, you're close to that balance.

You want to have the main spring be just strong enough to overcome the valve spring just enough to get your desired velocity. You want to use as little bolt adjustment as possible when doing this.

A couple of other 'tricks'; if the pump arm screw hole still goes all the way through the bolt, use a little non-permanent loc-tite on the threads and make sure its in all the way (LAPCO used to ship some stuff called vibratite which was perfect for this job); you can get as much as a 15-20 fps drop if that screw is loose.

You should also forget about any valve tube smaller than a 6 - if you can find an old nelson 00, get it. The bigger the throat on the tube, the better off you are.

The trick with the sliding trigger (although most of you seem to be playing stock so this is basically moot) is to adjust it so that the sear trips when the forward edge of the bolt o-ring seals the barrel - and just the forward edge. You can get up to some hellacious auto-trigger speeds that way.

If anyone has some extra internals, let me know...

Just had my Ghost out yesterday and was reminded of how nice of a shooter these markers really are. Thought it was worth bumping this thread back up so others could be reminded as well.
