SOLD - AM Diadem FS

So, newer but rare, this is a Diadem, probably circa 2005. This is the pneumatic version of the Sentinel, same company that built the Illusion, too. Solid, reliable, smooth, and fun. I'm selling, because I'm turning my second one into a mech, and that obviates the need for batteries.

FASOR bolt layout, with impressive efficiency after sweetspotting. The weird grip is large, but sits below the hand and can be quite comfortable. The acrylic board windows always crack a little, but rarely are an issue. Manual is included for the board; I probably need to raise the debounce setting. I don't remember what the eye logic is set to, either. The board has a ton of settings, though, including a manual ROF cap that's convenient for the ever-changing rulebook.

I rebuilt the 3-way solenoid valve- I used the old coil and pilot spring, but stole the spool, gaskets, O-rings, and pilot assembly from a brand-new 4-way valve. Works perfectly. Those Humphreys are hard to kill; the original had an nylon spool-end bumper crack in half, probably just from age. The aluminum body is far superior to the plastic-body SMCs.

No LPR, but they can be tuned by adding a 'cocker LPR to the front of the ASA, which can improve efficiency and reduce the "kick" even further. Cocker barrel, angel feedneck (stock with o-ring grippers inside).




A video of dry firing is on my phone, but I'm not sure the best way to upload it. Maybe I can sneak into the back yard with a pod of paint and a bucket full of sand sometime...

$170 shipped as shown, $120 shipped for just the gun (no reg, ASA, or barrel).

Thanks!

Oh, really? Did you complete that mod? Sorry I missed the sale.

Eh, ran intro issues with valve dwell. Then ran out of time. I'll get back to it eventually, maybe with a pulse valve or maybe with a circuit.
