A Palmers Squall would be awesome but well out of my price range.

No the plan now, because I love pistol play, is to get the Emney and set it up with a springfeed via the feedneck. I have a design in mind for a spring feed which should be easy to make from PVC tube and not require a spring.

Its a shame though because I was looking forward to using the PTX pistols, on paper they are really well designed and have little features which put them ahead of other springfed pistols were it not for the poor quality seals and orings used.

Maybe when I sell them somebody cleverer than me will get them working.

plus the PTX has the ability to run CA pretty cheaply.

Hah found this thread again. Well I tried my nice shiney blue PTX extreme jnr on HPA last Sunday.Not in game just a test at the range. Running from a remote directly into the 12gram chamber I was able to succesffully fire 50+ rounds. However it was leaking from multiple places around the co2 chamber.

This however was due to my inability to apply pfte tape correctly lol.
It broke one ball.

Gonna get it sealed up properly and may try it in game next month.

Shave the fitting down so the base of the threads get in. The PT threads are cut too deep to use an untouched fitting without leak issues (either from the fitting, or from the fitting lifting the valve assembly).

I meant to mean the pierce block, the QD fitting you added is right under it. if it sticks inside the marker body too far (which an unshaved fitting will) it could cause a leak.

And just to be clear, you do have an empty 12g in there correct? if you are sure the fitting isn't interfering with the pierce block, and there is an empty 12g in there ... it's either the orings or 12g seal on the pierce block. the pierce pin O-rings were always going out on mine. The PT Jr has more in common with the Delta 68 than the PT extreme. switching to a t68 pierce block solved my sealing issues with the D68's ... IIRC the pierce pin o-ring was a -010 size on both my PT Jr and on my D68's ... although I no longer have the PT Jr (just 3 D68's and 3 PTX's)
