You wants eliminate/reduce the chance of chopping a paintball because you thought you pumped it far enough back but didn't?
You wants to back out the IVG on your Empire Sniper for a lighter and smoother stroke?

You have come to the right place.


Update: 7/1/2013
Up on further testing. I concluded that in order to get 290FPS you need to run the pressure slightly under 200(195ish) with the IVG completely flush. This should be your default starting position.
You can actually run this with the IVG 1 turn out(counter-clockwise when looking at the ivg) at 210 PSI. It will require at less effort to pump.

History about the mod:
This mod is a Inception Designs inspired and developed via discussion on the simonized.com forums. Simon Stevens(founder/owner of Inception Designs, formerly of KEE) created the first set for me shortly after PSP World Cup 2012. It made a huge difference in the way the gun felt. As far as I know there are only 2 guns currently out there. 1 owned by FunSI00 on MCB the other is on its way to Troyus of PBN.
INCEPTION DESIGN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Problem:
With the stock Empire Sniper, your gun will cock before a paintball is loaded into the breech(see first picture below). This often leads to blank shots or pinched/chopped paintballs by the bolt.


The Solution
Once it is modded, the cocking point and beech opening point is exactly the same.


The Price for modding
Option 1 (Full Gun): $35 + return shipping
Send me your entire Sniper.
We do the milling/modifications.
We reassemble your marker along with timing and tuning your sniper before shipping it back to you.
Please don't send me a gun covered in mud and old paint. There will be an additional $5 if you you ship me a marker caked in mud and old paint.

Option 2 (Stripped): $30 + return shipping
You disassemble your gun and send me the body, detent(in good condition), hammer(with lug) and main pump guide rod.
We mod it, send it back to you.

The Price for modding and spring
Option 1 (Full Gun): $40 + return shipping
Send me your entire Sniper.
We do the milling/modifications.
We install the valve spring.
We reassemble your marker along with timing and tuning your sniper before shipping it back to you.
Please don't send me a gun covered in mud and old paint. There will be an additional $5 if you you ship me a marker caked in mud and old paint.

Option 2 (Stripped): $35 + return shipping
You disassemble your gun and send me the body, detent(in good condition), hammer(with lug) and main pump guide rod.
We mod it, send it back to you with the valve spring.

Side notes
I will not sell the springs separately. It is only sold if you mod your snipers. I don't feel like the springs does the Empire Sniper justice by itself.
Shipping to Me: Please use USPS with tracking and insurance.
Shipping to You: We will use USPS with tracking and insurance.
Turnaround time: 1.5 week from when I received them to when you get it back.
Profit: Simon doesn't want any money for the work but we will support him in 1 way or another.

I just got my sniper back and all I have to say is wow!! My sniper pumps absolutely perfect now!!! No more blank shots from not pulling the handle back far enough past the cocking point!! Also my pump stroke is super smooth now. I will post up a shooting video on YouTube tomorrow and post the link here.

Got my sniper modded and its works so much better! Shoots really smooth and if you use the auto trigger it shoots a lot smoother and fast. If you have a sniper I suggest getting this mod.

Just got mine back, a few thoughts:

Quality of service: 10/10, ying took my Sniper apart told me everything he saw, including a few things I did not know(got my sniper used), he fixed the oddities.

Wait time: 10/10 The gun was not gone for very long, I am in California and he is in the ATL, USPS even mess up delivery and it was delayed a day too, so it could have been done even sooner. Once Ying got it, took it apart and he sent it to milling and it was back to him in a week and in the mail to me the next day. I don't play every weekend so I was ok, but if you do you might miss one game day.

happiness with mod: 9.9/10 I have a Karni CCM'd out pump and the Sniper hangs with it in terms of smoothness of pump stroke, and now balls clear the bolt no problem. I do notice the pump stroke on my Karni is a bit shorter to cock, but during play it's soooo minor its hardly noticeable. Will this mod makes your Sniper burn down guys with CCM's? No, that's pretty much up to you (the player not the gun). But will it save you a few hundred in building up a CCM? definitely.

Final Thoughts:
The Sniper is pretty nice out of the box, but because of the extra length you have to stroke to clear the bolt from the chamber, it has a weakness. This mod eliminates this weakness, making the Sniper and incredible value. With the great service Ying provides, and the factor that a nice aftermarket Bolt is already 50 bucks with debatable changes, make this mod kind of a no brainer.
Fully Modded

*Edit*
Just talked to the machinest, he says he doesn't want to mill the SS guide rod. I don't blame him.

I don't think it will matter much once you have the stock set modded

OK, got it and played it last weekend. Thing pumps *money* now. For 30 bucks it's kind of a no-brainer if you plan on keeping your sniper for awhile.

I will be at LL6. If you want your sniper modded, I can pick them up there and bring them back with me. It will save you shipping costs.

I am looking for replacement spring and clip on magnets to increase hammer weight and decrease spring tension.

What do you mean? like the hush bolt?

Basically, as long as the length of the bolt you want to use is shorter than the stock bolt it will work. When you measure make sure you line up the bolt pin holes and measure to the bolt tip
