just got myself an A-80

hey i just picked up a nib assault 80 off the bst here on pbn for 168 shipped, and have a few questions.

it is the version 1 with the recipricating barrrel, can this barrel be replaced?

where can i buy the non recipricating breach?

where can i buy a tourny cap?

is there any problems with the recipricating barrel, is it neccesary to upgrade to the stationary barrel, or will the stock one do fine?

is my lifetime warranty card still honored, it is unfilled, but where do i send it seeing as WM went under?

is there anything else i should upgrade?

where can i buy an overdrive chip?

whats maintanence entail on these guns?

is 168 for a version 1 a-80 a good deal?

thanks in advance, and i look forward to the looks ill get on the feild with this monster

I answer the questions as you posted them Welcome to the family first of all.

1.) The actual barrel cannot be replaced.

2.) I may be able to make a phone call and get you a static breech, but you cannot buy one straight from W/M as they are no longer in business. I know there was a website posted on the forums somewhere that someone found an online store in Cali distributing A80 parts, though I was not aware of this dealer, they may still have parts.

3.) Tourney cap...same as above.

4.) There were many problems with the first generation breeches. They were often not calibrated thus all the chopping problems. You may have a jewel on your hands if it doesn't chop like crazy. This mostly occurs from the overpressuring of the barrel moving back, thus crushing the ball if it didn't slip into the barrel. I would suggest that if you could get your hands on the 2-stage bolt kit and the static breech, do it.

5.) Yes, your lifetime warrenty is still honored. If you do encounter a problem in which you feel like you need to send it into the shop, you can still send it to WarMachine (I suggest stongly that you call first) and we will work on it there. W/M still honors all their warrenties on their guns, they just ceased production and services.

6.) In this order, you should upgrade: the breech and 2-stage bolt, get a nice barrel (autococker/timmy/matrix threaded), regulator, overdrive chip. None of these are essential and if your gun is working right, don't mess Now if you are going to upgrade to better play tournements and such, I would get the breech, a barrel, and the OD chip over anything first.

7.) If I have an extra SF/OD chip lying around, you can get one from me. If not, I can check with Chris and see if W/M still has any.

8.) For maintainence, read thru this entire thread...it'll do you good if you want to learn a bit more about these guns. http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...hreadid=249422

9.) $168 is a pretty good deal seeing as they are starting price $180 on E-Bay and those are from Archon Paintball. If I can ask, who'd you buy it from?

If you have any trouble with the gun, just drop me a PM or post here and hopefully we'll be able to help ya out.

Happy shooting.

If you get the static breech, you must also get the 2-stage bolt and a barrel. So in all, the breech and bolt come together (by bolt I mean, spool, spool housing, springs, and o-rings) and cost $120 new, though they may be cheaper. I highly doubt you could find them used anywhere, but perhaps on a website with W/M products they may sell them. I'll call Chris tomorrow and see if I could get you one.

As for the tourny cap. They cost $30 new - I'll also ask about that tomorrow.
