Sorry for the long subject but i think this is important to me and some future timmy owners... i have reading some good stuff about the gun and i decided to get one in a few weeks... well i came across this review on the intimadator.. tell me if this is anywhere near the truth or if its correct.. i need a good reliable gun and i dont want to mess with it every time i play thanks for taking the time to read this>!
Bad: Do not believe every post you see here, some are just shops that want you to buy this gun.
Erm...how can i say this...DO NOT BUY THIS GUN IF YOUR A NEWBIE.
This gun requires alot of maintenence, a bit more then most other electros because of the way the hammer and bolt work. Delta told me to break it down 2-3 times a month and regrease it if im playing every weekend.
Out of the box, you must make sure to take it apart and clean it thouroghly. Mine had a piece of milling coil in the air line and when it hit the valve behind the regulators it did some damage. Very irritating for the money you shell out for it.
If your a newbie DONT do it yourself, take it to someone who knows Intimidators, otherwise draw yourself a good diagram before you start fiddling with it.
Do not use Oil in your gun at all. Quoting right from Delta " The oil will get in your Solenoid and mess it up royally". Even the guy who set mine up didnt know that, and he was uses one.
Adjusting it correctly REQUIRES gauges. A 0-300 and a 0-150 will do the best for you. Adjusting it without gauges can damage your solenoid...Delta says its rated to 100psi and its easy to turn the pressure up that high.
The Standard Manual that comes with the gun is terrible...Its a piece of s*it Photo Copy! Can ya believe it? Its also hard to read and not very informative. True, they offer an upgraded one, but why not just post it on there website???
Conclusion: I would recommend it to someone thats knowledgeable about O-rings, pressure, etc etc. I personally, would not buy this gun for say my girlfriend. For a easy to work electro, get a rainmaker or EM1. They may not have as many features, but are hella easier to setup and play with.
I got a great deal on mine at $645.00 so its not like im sour, but the gun requires someone in the know to deal with it.
I gave this gun an average rating of 5 because i think mostly newbies read this board looking for what gun to buy. If anything it forced me to learn how guns work very quickly. Sort of a crash course really
. I think im going to wind up sending in my gun to Delta and have them set it up
