Taso shoot to pierce valve

So how does the routine go with a shoot to pierce valve in sheridans?

I mean do you insert twelve gram, pump, and then shoot to pierce it and get a full velocity shot, or what?

Yes. It can be annoying until you get used to it. Since I usually carry my PMI-1 as a side arm, I keep it cocked with the bolt forward but no paint in the barrel. when I go to pull it out I simply pull the trigger, peirce the valve, and recock with paint.

So when you shoot to pierce the twelve gram, it won't shoot a ball even if you had one loaded?

Yup, your first shot pierces the 12g, but will not give you a full velocity shot. My KP2 just gives a little 'pop' and if I've chambered a ball it won't even come out of the barrel. Best bet it to cock the marker without paint, fire, then use like normal.

So today playing with it I never had to change twelve grams while I played, however with the gun chrono'd at 255 or so (field limit of 260) it took two or three dry fires to get the twelve gram to peirce, any thoughts?

Well the valve stem controls the piercing, so I'm guessing it's not traveling with enough force to pierce with one go. First one doesn't penetrate but makes an indent, 2nd or 3rd one breaks through.

So how does a fast changer work? Does it pierce when you screw it in? Or am I confusing it with an insta pierce?

A Sheridan Fast changer? No, it works the same was as a standard one, but it has steeper pitched threads that make unscrewing and screwing back in much faster.

so is there any way to make it pierce on the first shot all of the time? cause I really wouldnt want to have to dry fire it 2-3 times in the middle of a fire fight.

Sheridans should only take a single shot to pierce the 12-gram. Perhaps you should take yours apart to see if the pierce pin is excessively worn. Since you were getting 255 fps, it sounds like your springs are still okay...

You could possibly get an insta-pierce valve installed if you can't live witrh the shoot-to-pierce design.
