ram question and looking for some parts.
its been awhile since i've had a tribal and i picked up a project in a trade.
is this ram alright?
its mostly the end that looks like its been cut that bothers me.
also i'm in need of a solenoid gasket and solenoid mounting screws if anybody knows where i can get them.
That's only the shaft. Do you have the rest?
See pic on this page: Tribal-Paintball Products by Edwin H.
about half way down is a pic of a complete Tribal RAM.
I can't verify if that is bad machining or a break in your pic. Never disassembled my rams to look inside. I do have an extra RAM floating around somewhere... If i can find it i'll open it up and post a pic.
That does look like crap but I don't believe there was anything other than a flat surface to the back of that ram piston. I don't think it's necessarily bad. Honestly it might have some from the factory like that.
Since it's been a few days I assume you found TOG (Tribal Owners Group)? It's not really active but good info and if you can find some of those folks, they may have the parts. I actually have a spare noid somewhere but it's in bushmaster configuration so I think the screws were different. Haven't looked in that parts box in a while but there's a small chance I have a gasket and screws.
oh... HaveBlue (ASP) is a good one to ping as well. He used to be pretty deep into those guns and may have some bits laying around as well.
yes i have the rest of the ram assembly, i only posted a pic of the shaft as it was the only part i was concerned about.
Ive been a member of tog since 2007, figured id try here first since tog doesn't have much activity
If you can't find one of those guys for a noid gasket / screws, LMK and I'll dig out the dusty Tribal parts box and take a look. :D
that was most likely a snap back ram that was cut to get rid of the "snap back." In the eairlier or maybe later designs of the rams there was a small o-ring in the ram cap and a nub on the back of the ram shaft. The two would lock together when the ram went back. It was kind of a anti-first shot drop mechanism. It required enough force to be applied before the ram would let the shaft go forward. I believe older bushmasters and angels also used this but ICD replaced their snap back with a spring. If you read Ravi's article on the bushy he describes it as well.

Tolar, I still have the BBT you traded me, along with the whole box of spares. P.M. me if you need anything.
Hopefully one of you guys has one.... if not I can try and contact Warped, Edwin or dig thru my parts (if I can find 'em) *l;ol
i found a solution for the solenoid gasket (Solenoid gasket O-ring mod) and have found a source for the solenoid screws, i just have to order them.
