I even threw an old 6 inch (I think) true flight barrel I had on it and it still shot really good. I'm looking forward to getting this out on the field.
awesome!!!!!!

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
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...

Lube it: Use vaseline on the pistons and drop a few drops of oil into the asa; Cycle a few rounds then it should stop it

(don't mind the yellow Kanner, it was the only barrel I had at my shop, have a dw barrel at home)

One question:

The cocking key on the thumb lever, I thought that they were being sent out with a steel cocking key now, instead of the brass that they first came with? I swore I read that in this thread somewhere. Mine is brass. I will be testing it out tommorow.
The pawl is and has remained brass, the only thing that is steel is the hammer.

The chuff sound is normal, and if you lube the gun enough that it goes away, you've lubed it too much

It will have a matching barrel, just have to send it and an on/off to the anodizer to color match it for me. All of my custom anoed guns get anoed with barrels, even though I use my DW barrel 90% of the time on all of them.

DO NOT PUT OIL IN THE ASA. ONLY VASELINE!!!

Oil will destroy your valve. I just ruined my valve last week by putting oil in the ASA. Both Brian and the makers of the valve say don't use gun oil in the thumper.

Also, don't put Vaseline through the ASA. It will gum up your marker.

Take the valve out, apply Vaseline to the o-rings, and reinstall. Leave that alone.

Take out piston and clean/relube with Vaseline whenever you play.

That's all they need. Mines been chugging happily along since then.

@ LS... By now, you must have chosen to upgrade your Thumper with the latest piston and hammer also. Or if you haven't? There must be something terribly wrong with the rest of us LOL.
