-How do I do routine maintenance?
+ Every 3 cases, put a drop of KC trouble free into the exhaust port (the last hole closest to the barrel in the breach) and 2 drops into the ASA or macro line. Dry fire 30-50 times, and then open the breach, wipe the grease off the bolt, and wipe the breach inside where the bolt rests. Lastly, 1 drops in the LPR. You're all done.
-My breach is worn down and there is no ano left... Is this a bad thing?
+Not at all. It's completely normal. What would make it not so normal is if you have your ram stroke or LPR out of the proper settings... It might increase the level of wear.
-How do I get my rise off?
+Taking rises off are a act of god. The easiness of it depends on what tools you have available. A tight fitting hopper is one of the best ways. Just put it in, and turn the hopper to loosen the feed neck. Most of the time, the rise unscrews by itself, and then most people get a new rise. A pair of table top vice grips is also one of the best tools. Just wrap your rise in a towel, tighten, and turn. Now, If you don't have at least some Vice grip pliers, stop here, and go buy some. A strap wrench will also work... obviously. Heating the bottom of the rise is a good idea also; just make sure you take the detent(s) out first so they don't melt. A hairdryer will work, I prefer straight out fire. Those long barbeque ones are best so you don't burn yourself. Be patient, it takes time for it to melt the loc-tite.
-My breach won't open with or with out gas in the gun... What do I do?
+Either you were playing, chopped, and got a little bit of shell stuck under the bolt, the bolt moved forward a bit with no gas, or you have an incorrect hammer position and you need to adjust your ram stroke. For any except the last, the solution is easy. Turn the loader upside down, so there is no paint being fed on to the breach Shoot the last shots still stuck in the stack, and then take a squeegee and basically ram it down there to push the bolt back. Find the culprit shell and clean out the bolt and the breach area.
-How often should I perform maintenance on the gun?
+For simple oiling, every 3-5 cases. For greasing, 10-15.
-Should I upgrade my LCD to the newest battery?
Not unless you notice significantly less shots off a full battery. However, that key did annoy me, but you can buy a replacement switch for the key instead of a whole new battery at Cobra paintball (www.cobrapaintball
) Make sure it's RECESSED and NOT the one with the shroud.
+Intellifeed is a hookup that enables you to run your revvy off the battery of the gun. Instead of the revvy feeding when it sees a gap, it will feed a user controlled amount per trigger pull, making it much more consistent. You CAN set this up on a
Evo, but there is not enough battery power to get it to feed the EVO at max. SPEED owners, your battery operates at a lower voltage than a revvy can effectivly feed. For both of these situations, you CAN run one, but it won't run off the battery of
the gun well.
-Will a HALO-B work with a LED/LCD/IR3?
+Risky situation. Probably not, even with the TE software some have double feeds. Buying the Cobra (www.cobrapaintball.com
) Indestructdetents can help. Usually it will work with a combination of both.
-Will a HALO-B work with a SPEED/A4
Yes, and maybe. For some reason, some SPEED owners have trouble with it. I never have, and since the A4 has the same detents, the same goes for the A4
-What are some good performance upgrades for my Angel?
+A better question, is what looks good to you on your angel? There are 4 things that will make your angel the best it can be.
1. Fast loader, or a loader you like.
2. A good barrel/set of barrels/barrel system.
3. A good reliable consistent air system.
4. A comfortable setup. A comfortable is the only one that I will clasify as a preformance mod. It can do wonders to your game to have a setup designed seemingly for you.
-What do volumizers do for LED's/LCD's/IR3's?
+Nothing... At all...
- What do volumizers do For SPEED's/A4's?
+Ah, now these DO do something. They can lower your operating pressure to below 200 PSI. Making it have less kick and quieter means a lot to some users.
-What bolt will give me better performance over the stock one?
+If you're talking about any bolt other than the SPEED, the stock bolt is amazing. I would just leave it alone. For SPEED users, the stock bolt is basically a R-11, so leave it alone, it's one of the best.
-I lost a screw/ciclip/o-ring etc., where can I get another one?
or any authorized WDP service center. Get a couple just in case.
-Are there any differences between a 2k LCD and a 2k2?
+Yes, other than milling, there is a new LPR and a new battery upgrade.
-My board is fried, where can I get a new one?
or any authorized WDP service center.
-What is ACE?
+ ACE stands for Anti Chop Eye. It is currently available for LED, LCD, and IR3 owners only. It costs 250 dollars (not including shipping) and is done in Warped Sports LA. Turn around is 2 weeks max.
-My angel is chopping, what could be the problem?
+Faulty ball detents are the first culprit. Check the ball and press in on it and make sure it has resistance. Put it back in hand tight. Next, make sure your MROF is about 2 BPS lower than what your loader can feed. Next, make sure it's a chop and
not a barrel break. Finally, make sure your ram stroke is correct. The way to check is to close the breach and make sure you hear a little click.
-What are some good things to have handy?
+A COMPLETE set of metric Allen wrenches, a pair of Ci-Clip pliers that can both remove and install the Ci-clip, and replacement o-rings. I plan to have spares of every seal and every piece in the mini-reg.
-Should I get an Angel or a "random gun name here"?
+What feels better to you? What's your gut instinct? What makes you feel good when you see a pic of it? What do you dream about?
-What are Cops1, Cops2, Sensi
+Cops; Crystal Operated Paint Sensor, basically a sensor under the body of the gun with a rod sticking out under the breech that sense the weight of a ball if present, if the ball is not present the firing of the bolt will be delayed.
Cops1 is the first incarnation of wdp's anti chop system and the bas on cops1 makes the gun fire either 1,2 or 3 bps max when no ball is present.
Cops2 is an updated and improved version of cops1, and the bas on cops 2 is the length of time that the bolt will be delayed if there is no ball present.
Sensi is yet another update to the cops system and requires no adjustments, it will automatically adjust, sensi also has aditional modes that ceases the gun from shooting completely.

-If I take off the volumizer on my LED/LCD/IR3, will I still get no drop off under rapid fire?
+That's correct. While the volumizer does
increase the amount of air withheld in the valve gallery, it does not supply enough to make a difference. You have to fill the volumizer slot with a front plate. Those are those little circular anno'ed to match plugs that came with the gun.

-My HaloB does not work on my speed. What can I do?
(Courtesy of reaver)
+Intrestingly enough, we talked on AIM, and discovered that his left ball detent would retract under pressure like normal, but not return. Faulty ball detents are 90% of the problem that SPEED users will face with a HALO-B. Luckily, they are rebuildable. Just pull the white ball out, and buy a replacement kit.
-How do I take off the breach?
(-Courtesy of Satan
+Taking the breach off is very easy. Unscrew the breach knob. Remove the back plate
(where the on/off switch is) using the suitable metric allen key. Now, remove the rod on the left side, and your breach is off.

On a side note, the breach on your gun was made to certain tolerances that ONLY
that gun has. Trading your breach for another is a bad idea.
-Why Does my Speed have FSDO?
(-Courtesy of Reaver
+Most of the initial FSDO (First Shot Drop Off) is due to improper charging. All SPEED's will eventually
expierence FSDO, but the level of it is uncertain. The battery on a full charge pumps out just enough juice to make the solenoid operate properly. As the cahrge goes down, you will experience a degree of FSDO. Now, usually this just means taking 1-2 shots before a game. They will be releasing a 3v solenoid soon that operates low enough to keep a SPEED FSDO-free all the way through and through. Stay tuned to this answer for more information as it becomes available.
-What does Lower Bolt pressure on an Angel do for me?
(-Courtesy of Reaver
+At the pressures as far as an Angel is concerned, not much. The Angel just can't cycle the bolt low enough to pinch paint. So far, all of the Angel's can shoot any paint without worry of too much pressure.
