Stupid TPX questions...
 
1) Is there away to cut out the entire 12g section and pottentially everything infront of the trigger guard...save the barrel?

So, is the front block really needed?

If I could plug up the 12g pierce pin some how and just run remote, could then entire front end be removed?

I think so... But I believe the return spring for the trigger is in the piercing unit. I'm sure people have done a "12g delete mod" where the line from the regular just gets plugged.

The front block not necessary. There was a delete mod that was basically was a rod that had an oring to block the passage from the reg to the front pierce block. The older TPXs might have had a screw in elbow at the regulator. But those were the really early models.

Ah. A spring...somewhere... hrmmmm

Why do the little things always end up being the biggest deal?


It would seem to me that this little dohickie would replace the tube going to the 12g and therefore eliminate the need to keep the one that is in place.

If so, this means that (above mentioned spring aside...) the 12g assembly should be pretty easy to cut out of the system?



Front block is not needed! OK.

Is there anything in the clamshells forward of the breach block that is vital to the function of the marker? If I cut that section off...with the body become weak and flexible and allow internal parts to 'shake' them selves loose or something?

(Pretend I have no idea how the internals of a TPX work.......then stop pretending...)

Anyone got a better shot of the internals than this? I like how parts are listed...

Well the major stress point is really the co2 chamber...
Maybe see if you run a bolt under the barrel shroud to pin the action in place?

At this stage I am purely in the research stage of my scheme...I dont currently have a TPX and unless I can convince myself my idea is actually feasible I don't want to buy one and hack it up into something un usable.


Anyone got a better close up picture of the trigger assembly and the Pierce pin assembly? Something that might show what is attached to what?

Stilgar 04-04-2013 08:38 AM

Well According to this...it is doable!

So epoxy won't work.

I still need to clean up the body some now and make it look a little more perty and then she'll be ready for battle!

Shorter TPX mod with remote line only - YouTube

if you can get a hold of an older regulator TA20102 with that brass elbow fitting, maybe you can just cap it off cleanly. The TA20132 was the upgrade that had the integrated elbow....at least from what I can research.

Old PDF link to the TPX. Part number 21 is the regulator.

OK, found a TPX!

So...Can anyone tell me if that Pierce pin assembly is needed to operate the gun? Is there anything in it that will effect the trigger?

T-T 04-10-2013 06:32 AM

Just the return I reckon. Never tested it, but should be fairly easy with a remote adapter.
