Every time I've called him he's answered and helped me out right away. Insane reply time.

I typically carry one extra tube and give them 1 ball from it.

I'm an *** like that.

Send a message via AIM to Ghost334

Brian emailed me back from the precise email address... with a 3 day response time--not too bad. Unfortunately it appears that I need to send the marker in, even though the seller claimed it "has all the updated parts." Oh well.

I emailed him at the precise email and he replied back within hours. Now just hoping he shipped out the piston as quickly as he replied to the email :/

Took mine apart today and noticed that there are bushings in 3 of the four guide holes for the pump arms. The one in the back right (sighting down the gun) isn't there. Looking at CD's manual, it isn't there either. Am I missing a bushing or is it not supposed to be there?

Every gun is missing at least one bushing, he was afraid having all four would cause binding and misalignment issues.

you're only supposed to have 3 bushings to prevent binding. You're fine :-)

Hey ghost as far as I know the gun does or did have all of the updated parts at time of sale. I'm thinking he just wants to troubleshoot the gun himself to make sure everythings working right. Up untill I put the new piston in, it worked great. I hope you get it working. I think you'll really like it after you do.

It'll all work out, I'm sure. I was hoping not to have to send it in and wait. I don't think you purposely mislead me or anything... I was just hoping it would be an easy fix haha

So I have been sitting on 2 thumpers waiting to see that all the bugs are worked out before sending them in. I have a blue one with v1 internals and a custom anno with v3. So can you fill me in on what revision were up to now? I want to run these open class with air I remember that they did not work well with air and I just tried to make the one with the v3 internals work with it and failed so with the new revisions do they work with air yet?

A friend of mine finally received his pre-ordered thumper which has all the latest upgrades including the new detent and breech. His piston started bending while using HPA through a remote line. The bend was minor so he was able to bend it back straight and try it with CO2. It seems to be holding up with the CO2 through the remote line but now he's having issues with the small o-ring on the main piston breaking.

Some people seem to have no problems while others are having problems. I'm actually waiting on the new piston to get to me....I think it was sent by pigeon courier. Hopefully it'll work for me but I really doubt it.

If someone made one out of steel I'd buy it in a heartbeat for a reasonable price.
