K guys, I made a rain cover with a PVC pipe and some Pipe covering.
It worked well with air only and I ported it so that the air would go out, It worked like a charm, To my horror when I brought it out to the field and began shooting my PGP, It began Chopping mad so then I raised my hand and told the ref I was going to put away the Silencer, FOR GOOD

Anyone got a good Idea to make a raincover For a PGP2k1

Most people don't know that skittish is the proper spelling for "jittery". Don't believe me... Look it up.

Alas, that was pre-9/11, I don't know if you can still get such useful information from the Army print shops anymore.

I used to use that puppy on an old square 'Cocker back in the day...I could hold the 3 way rod and squeeze off one shot without cycling, then cock it manually if I so desired.

The wikipedia entry on raincovers has some diagrams showing baffle construction, etc.
Suppressor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

pinesftw - Were the balls hitting the inside of the raincover? if they weren't I don't see how it could have been causing your problem.
You do know the PGP2k1 had some issues with breaking balls due to bolt design & paint overspray on the inside of the barrel, right?

I took out most of the overspray, I shot the silencer 4-5 times out of a gamr after, all my paintballs broke. after that I used 100 paintballs , No breaks, My PGP doesn't chop too much anymore
