Got my delta 68...what next?

I've read over a few threads on Zeus and other pistol mods.

As soon as it got in I have it a cleaning and smoothed bolt and hammer with steel wool. Probably will do the same yo the inside as well.

I need to drill a loading port in the spring feed.

Any other thoughts?

Don't use steel wool on the inside of the body! If anything, use a flex hone (see stickies). Steel wool will likely damage the internal anodizing and create a rougher finish than what is already there.

Too late.

I didn't scrub very hard: no good way to stick it in and I didn't think I did a good job. Guess that's a good think.

I am using #0000 if that matters. And it helped my 98c immensely...

Shot the Delta 68 over the weekend.

I had a mix of marbs and other paint, from last summer (surprisingly, no visible dimples or other issues).

First issue was adjusting the lever to push in the CO2 cartridge. I got it adjusted but it is more difficult than I anticipated to pull the cartridge out; it tends to have pressure still and dropping it out isn't real easy. Any suggestions on that?

Second issue was accuracy. The bore must be large because the marbs were practically rolling out of the barrel. I couldn't hit anything reliably much beyond 10 paces or so: I attribute that to bad paint-to-barrel match and old paint. Any suggested paint for these markers?

Valken Graffiti is a good fit if you can get hold of some; if I'm unsure I normally go for the rec-ball stuff at events as you'll find they're a slightly larger bore than the tourny grade.

I really want to say I've read a thread where someone figured out these can be bored for freaks.

Thanks for the paint suggestion. Local field has GI Sportz stuff only.

RE the freak kit: I was thinking about that last night as I went to bed. The barrel, as far as I can tell, can't be removed; do you mean they can be bored from the front for freaks? Or would such an insert need to go in the breech-side of the barrel?

Melvin, you're talking about when I talked it over with airsmiths to bore out a T68 Gen3, which is basically a re-branded Delta 68.

https://www.mcarterbrown.com/forums/a...68-pistol.html

Long story short: Measure from the face of the bolt, in the forward position, to the start of the threads/front of the pistol. As long as you have 5 1/16ths of an inch, it should be capable of being freak bored. Still need to plan it out with the airsmith for the finer details. What I can say though is if you plan to use this pistol for 3+ years, it's worth it.

Thanks Zeren / Melvin. I have my hands full with mods to do now. I hate pulling back on the bolt; I want to weld a 3x.5 in rectangular piece of metal to it or something so I can rack it lol
