anyways have a couple questions about it
when the tank pressure drops it chops every paintball i see that being a pain on the field w/out having a gauge to let me know im getting close to 400 psi or whatever (im running co2)
i was really impressed w/ the reg this has running co2 it is very consistent.
for $h!ts and gigles i threw a syphon tank on it and it still shot great.
also wondering if i could get any specific info on the gun like weather there were upgrades or even what it is
im assuming its an epic not the dv8 but it does have the trap door pro
single trigger flat black right feed
and i wondered if it is counterproductive to use a barrel sizer kit. from what i understand its better to slightly overbore.
efficiancy doesnt seam terrible i got 16 usable shots off a 12 gram when i was monkeying around and if they operate at 300 to 400 i geuss i was expecting 20 or so
one more thing...had some pretty horrible results w/ a vlocity hopper on the lowest setting chopped half the paint. thoughts?
click the "about the DV8" and "About the epic" links, that should tell you everything you want to know about the difference between the markers which really is limited to a few components.
As far as Over or Under boring, that seems to be a pretty common topic of discussion. You should check out some of the videos on the topic. Gordon (Cocker Punk) does a pretty good job at explaining it. and even put some science behind the whole thing. Heres his youtube page:
If i remember correctly, he recommends slightly under boring (.679? ish.)
However, that is going to be dependent on the specific marker, barrel and paint setup. The Epic with its trap door design may perform much different than other markers.
Luckily, the epic is Cocker threaded, and you can probably find a nice cocker threaded barrel that if bored and comes with a set of Freak inserts, then you can decide what you like the best (also gives you the ability to change inserts based on specific paint).
