gz went kaboom

this is mainly directed to terrence, are you going to be in chicago? because my friend just bought a brand new gz and both the inline and the lpr spike like crazy and we need it for chicago.

anybody else got ideas.....

i did clean everything, because someone told me that the only real thing probably causiing taht is dirt on the orings or something, but all this happend b4 it even hit the field.........and the gun didnt come with a spare parts kit to try new orings.

If they spike like crazy when airing it up then air it up with both of them screwed out where its like almost no presure into the gun but the tank is in(or on) and then slowly turn the torpedo reg up to 200 psi and the front little lpr thing one to 85 or so.

I have the new size LPR orings in stock that will solve this problem. I ordered them from a different supplier and have been testing them all week.

Thanks

Will be in Chicago for the 10 man, check around the National truck Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning. Should be a 10 min fix, if the solenoid hasn't blown. DO NOT FIRE THE GUN WITH THE LPR OVER 100 PSI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The fix is as simple as one oring on the LPR That needs to be changed to a larger metric size. I have them in stock. have tested,
others have tested, and it works as it should after that.

Thanks

I think someone is just jelious. And I'd still buy a timmy, heck I have and I am going to buy another, because I know I have one thing you guys don't. Bob Long. He's a great guy and looks out for Intimidator owners and their guns. John Rice on the other hand, is all about the money.

ok dude say what you want, john rice is all the way in europe, im not dissing on gzs at all i think they are great guns but im saying is if Bob really cares about his buyers so much he should have tested them longer cause alot of them are overpressurizing and leaking. why should you have to be fixing a gun thats brand new?

sorry, I dont know any new release gun that doesnt have a couple of unexpected problems when released, even the $1500 Approx angel IR3 suffers from bad boards and non working anti chop system.

Thanks

its called a high rise and intellifeed, works wonders. GZ's shoot well, never said that they dont shoot well, when they working, just have more relaibiliy issues being a new gun.

hey sandridge you have some great points but your posting them in a forum where you are obviously going to encounter some massive opposition to your ideas. As far as angels and timmys I have played with four or five different angels and they are great guns but I now have a GZ timmy and am the happiest player ever. It has all the speed of an angel, lower pressure operation, plus the ACE which works much better than the COPS on the IR3 in my opinion, and all this for less than a stock LCD not to mention the support of Bob Long and many other dedicated industry folks like Smoke. So there the GZ is a better deal and is honestly a better gun.

LONG Live the TIMMY

kinda off subject...

why is it you only see angels being thrown or spiked in the ground? I've never seen a cocker being hurled through the air into a net turnbuckle. Do people just see all those neat gadgets on the Angel and think it would make a cool airplane. I don't know about you but I think the cocker would make a cool airplane if you stuck a propeller and some wings on it, but thats another story. Just so you knw, I would never throw a cocker. Unless it belonged to someone else.

You know, its guys like Sandridge that get shot on the break by an Intimidator over at SC Village and then say how they "suck." You say your not trying to flame anyone, but then you do just that.

I'm at SC every weekend and you see just as many Timmies as you do Angels these days. Its what works for the person so I don't get the "go back to an Angel" comment. I have personally owned five different Angels (including an IR3) and like my two timmies much better, but that's just me.
