TPX help?

Alrighty, So I got around to fixing up my TPX. I bought it at release with 6 of the original 8 ball mags.

I put around 15 mags through it and it would chop 1-2 balls per mag.
I then hand loaded 200 balls one at a time and it didn't chop a one, it was also fairly accurate. I would pop the mag, drop a ball in the breach and shove the mag home, then shoot. I did this for about 2 hours last night at work.

Do you think getting the 7 round mags or some zeta mags would fix my feeding issue? I figure most people that switched over saw their marker work a bit better.

Also does the Tech T bolt cut down on chops? I haven't found a definitive answer yet, even combing through tons of threads.

On a side note, I took it down and lubed it as far as I possibly could, the only thing I didn't open was the back of the air valve because I don't have any angled pliers.

I was really surprised how much I liked it, I had muscle memory even though I have never really used it, and I was hitting my mark really easily.

It wouldn't hurt to try a 7 round mag. Do you know anyone close to you that has the 7 round mags? I can't comment on the techt bolt on chops. I know it improves air efficiency and increases velocity, but I haven't seen much mentioned on reduced chops. I do have one but haven't installed it until I have some time in front of a chrono.

Hey Fred,

I have the 7 round mags if you want to try it out. Unfortunatley I sold off all my zetamags.

Let me know..

I'd love to give them a try Sean.

There is a local guy who has shown up once or twice with Zetamags, I'll have to see if he drops by anytime soon.

You can mail them back to Tippmann and they will send you free of charge new 7 round mags. Just call Tippmann and they'll take care of you.

I wasn't sure if they still honored that, I remember reading about that with the release of the 7 rounders. I'll give them a call soon and see if they'll still hook me up.
