    Everything propane ... a depository for the C3

    Hello,

    Finally got a bucket item of mine: a C3!
    Post your C3 photo, trouble and tip, we can all learn helping each other.

    Lets start by putting Warpig's amazing write-up: Tippmann C3 (by Bill Mills - Photos by Dawn Mills)
    It goes in detail on how to take it apart and what to look for.

    Edit:
    Lets also add our own Cdn_Cuda Adventures With Tippmann C3!
    He shares a lot of the inside and how he put his own back together; A great read!


    They even made a little animation:

    The Electronic is pretty simple, its a small high voltage spark circuit.
    The spark plug is on teh top left corner. The white rectangle is a coil, the circuit charge the capacitor and it discharge in the coil.

    This is the propane valve, it makes sure the exact same amount of propane is used for every shot.

    The barrel/hammer assembly. Watch out for that twisty o-ring lodged between the combustion chamber and the barrel.

    The main drawback (for me) is that they tend to have poor grounding and zap the operator from time to time.
    This is EXTREMELY unpleasant!!!

    I believe it is coming from the lubricant insulating some of the parts making poor connection to the ground terminal of the coil. I used H1 (food grade oil) for it, it seam to work well except for the occasional zapping ...

    I have a few ideas on resolving this issue, but i need to test them before posting it here, i will update my progress as i have time for testing.

      i'm not laughing at you, but this is hilarious.

      i always thought the C3 was the ultimate grab-and-go paintball marker, for all of its flaws in execution, its pretty cool as a concept, and an innovative tippmann product. i definitely wonder what could have been if it had worked out, especially since co2 is pretty much gone.

        Are any wires touching each other or bare wires touching the body of the gun? A loose wire bouncing around thats bare/ exposed touching the body or each other will cause an arc and can shock you. Bad grounding will cause the shocks too. If im not mistaken on the top right side of the grip frame pic i see some bare wire. (The wire wrapped on that screw head) That can be causing a shock?

          That bare wire is the ground voltage returning to the coil, it can be bare without a problem ...
          i inspected the entire gun and I strongly suspect the voltage leak is coming from a weak path through the gun itself die to the grease ...

          My plan is to add a second ground wire to the body and/or to the reg, just need to find the spot that makes the most sense ...

          You can laugh at me ... I'm still trying to use it

          The idea to be unique and totally built from the ground up is what appeals to me. Someone put a lot of thought making something entirely new instead of making the same valve train as the next guy. In that regard, I see it a bit like the thumper or the Phoenix.
          ​​​​​​​It is solidly built, but it could definitely get a few refinement to be more user/maintenance friendly.

          I feel like you really dropped the ball on a quality King of the Hill reference for the title...
          If you need to talk, I will listen. Leave a message and I will call you back as soon as I get it.
