Since before the TiPX had even officially come out there have been certain changes that I wanted to make in order for it to suit me perfectly.
As most here know I use 2 TiPX pistols as my primary and both are run on 12grams.
Some of these changes were things I could do myself and some were frankly beyond me.
I did the things I could do, honing breech and barrel, tuning all the parts to work together and having my son remove the rail and fingergrooves.
Let me start by saying that with the exception of my stepson, noone has ever gotten one of my guns to cut on in 28 years of play. Smiley was patient for the long delay it took for me to psych myself up....
However after seeing the great work he had done on Rogue's pistol I more than trusted him.
The results were beyond my expectations. He understood what I was going for and gave me real working pieces of art.
Here's a little demonstration video!
The 2 problems that I could not address myself were the co2 change system and the sighting system.
This is the perfect answer to the difficulties I found with the co2 system.
I won't pick fights and say that every pistolsight system I've ever seen is wrong,
I'll just say what I'm doing is not what they are doing.
Instinctive shooting requires consistent repeatability.
I have to get parts to Smiley to finish that half of the work. My nemesis the post office and I battle again.
I'll have some pics to post soon!
We play Pistol and we encourage the Few despite the discouragement of the Many.

So the set screw is behind the magnet? I understand you use the set screw to make it so that you only need what looks like 1/4-1/2 of a turn to pierce the 12. I understand that the magnet grabs the 12s. I'm just not fully seeing how the 2 systems work together.
Very, very cool.

The set screw is just to keep the 12 grams in contact the floating seal and not touching the pierce pin until the trigger is pulled.
The set screw is in the center of the magnetic washer on the face of the CO2 plug but the set screw is steel so it also becomes magnetic.

Very, very cool. In the good amount of pistol and stock class I've played, I've always found the
12ie change to be the trickiest and most time-consuming part.
