How Wear in Your Gun and Save ~$290!

Here's a quick tutorial on how to get your orings, reg seats, and everything worn in on your new gun and save about $290.

Materials:
  • Your marker
  • Scuba Tank
  • Lube
  • Tape
  • Towels-Optional
  • Allen Set
  • Tank


Procedure:
  1. Take off your marker's grips
  2. Put your marker on NXL
  3. Set your marker on uncapped BPS
  4. Take out your detents-Very important!
  5. Lube your reg(s).
  6. Connect your tank to your marker
  7. Air your marker up
  8. Connect your tank to your scuba tank
  9. Turn your scuba tank on
  10. Power up your marker and turn your eyes off
  11. Arrange towels around the barrel to muffle the sound
  12. Fire 3 shots and tape your trigger to your grip frame (so your marker is firing constantly)
  13. Lube the marker at least 3 times periodicly during the firing.
  14. Lube your marker and regs one last time
  15. Put your grips and detents back
  16. ???
  17. Profit!


Pics coming soon.

$290 Statement is based on cost of paint (I shoot a luxe, 1500 per 68ci, 1500 per scuba, $5 for scuba fill, $40 for a case of paint.)

I think this idea is better for some markers than others. Considering the fact that the current Quest bolt has no front bumper - and has been known to crack in normal use, let alone during excessive dry firing - I really wouldn't recommend this procedure for a Quest.

pretty much haha

I severely doubt you'll burn your noid out.

I suggest this for stock bolt users, as I haven't seen many stock bolts crack.

Worked fine on both of my quests, including one with a gm.

Im confused... where is the nxl setting on my T2? It is already uncapped... how will it keep shooting? Will you pump it for me Z4ack?



In all seriousness I am a huge fan of dry firing markers in this manner. Sure I guess now with bolts (currently) in short supply this might be scary, but I see where Z4ck is coming from... I used to just a use a 114ci tank, as I do no have access to scuba...
