Gun oil swells o-rings too but shouldn't cause hammer drag. You may need to file down the sear just a c-hair, what do you think Russ?

Just to clarify, all screws are the same as they came on it, none are in to far or to lose. The sear is not draging on anything, I know it is rough looking but I droped another hammer in there from my Nelspot and the same thing. Now If you look at the 3 close up pictures of the hammer you will see in the second one I colored the bottom of the hammer with a marker, the third picture of a hammer shows (if you look closely) where the marker rubbed off from the hammer, indicating where it is pinching/kinking at. What I did not show and failed to mention(sorry) is I colored the side of the sear as well to see if it was draging on the slot cut for it. It appears that the hammer is rocking a bit on the long axis. I am in the mode of thinking of having a new bolt made with velocity adjustment and antikink, matched to a hammer.
I appreciate everyones input and if anyone can think of a different way to solve this I would love to here it.

A weaker mainspring would cause less binding...that would be worth a try. You'd have to balance powertube and valve spring accordingly. I think modding the bolt for a CCI hammer is the way to go.

If I go with a cci hammer should I aslo get a CCI power tube? I tryed the hammer from my R7 just to see how much would need to be milled out of the bolt and noticed that the hammer floats to much on a 007 power tube. Isnt the CCI power tube a larger OD?

Please ignor that last post, the statement about the size of the power tubes was just pure ignorance on my part.

I tried a Phantom hammer=no go. No improvement, in fact, I couldn't get the bolt to lock up to the hammer. The valve tube isn't a standard Nelson length either, the distance to the shoulder is different.

Hmmmm mine seems to have a standard 007 power tube. The phantom hammer does not mate up to my bolt to use it. I need to have someone mill out the back so the sleeve on the hammer will fit it like russc reconmended.

Long over due action and update

Well after dragging my feet for a few years, I got tired of seeing this floating around on my work table, and decided to take some action.
I figured making a new bolt could solve all of my problems with this cool old gun. I put a lot of though into what I wanted and decided to contact Ty McNeer of Brass Monkey Customs - mcarterbrown.com to inquire if he might be interested. I contacted Ty via PM, and we exchanged a few PMs discussing the project, he then recommended we talk via phone.
This alone turned out to be an adventure well worth the entire transaction.

I caught up with Ty while he was at work, he seemed very pleased to talk to me. Then out of no where Ty rolls in to this stream of unadulterated four letter words woven together so masterfully as to make a English Major shriek in horror and a salty sailor blush. Ty then apologizes and explains that his machines at work are acting up and he has a heavy work load. I say "no problems, if this is a bad time I can call back". He assures me it is fine and this is nothing new at his place of employment.
We talk a little about paintball in general, some of the guns we both have and other pleasantries as such. (More cussing followed by some banging) I explain to him what I want done and the direction I want to take the whole drive train of this gun. Ty says he understands,(Insults the machines mothers) he has one of these as well, he liked my idea, made some suggestion, then agreed that he could and would help me. However he said his back log was substantial and not getting any smaller. I told him after 2 years I was in no hurry now. (Cussing followed by louder banging, I think I even heard some chain in the background)As I got off the phone with him I couldn't help my imagination conjuring up images of him dress in black leather chaps and chains like a S&M dominatrix standing over his defiant machines lashing them into submission with words, a firm slap and lashing from bundled up patch cords.
I sent him my original bolt and some other parts to match up to it. Several weeks later Ty contacts me with pictures and to confirm return address.
Here is what I got.

I decided to change out the lever changer for a back bottle. I but a full CCI drive train and valve in it, changed the phantom sear for a 007 one.

Success!! the pump stroke is fairly smooth, just a little heaver than a phantom. I had to play with the springing a bit but it is now shooting up to speed. Testing it brought up another problem. The barrel is to long to use a phantom velocity adjusting rod, so I had to come up with something else.
I looked around my piles of junk in the work shop and found this quick connect drill bit extension.

It fits down the barrel very well and is easy to adjust, comes apart to fit in gear bag.

Over all I am very happy with Ty's work, it turned out beautifully. I would highly recommend his work as a machinist, just if you are faint of heart, call him at home and not work(love ya Ty).
