EOS Questions

OK - I do not post unless I need something that has already not been asked. I enjoy the posts and all of the knowledge that this site has to offer but have a few questions I need to ask.

First, my EOS did not come with an allen wrench for the screws holding the body/ASA together. I know the one for the Bolt is not included but did not see anywhere that this one would not be included.

I have adjusted the trigger to the best I can and even with the conical mounting screws it still has some side to side slop. This can only be prevented by overtightneing the screws and not allowing the trigger to reset after it is pulled. Anyone have any tips for tightening this up a touch more? I know it doesn't have near as much as a pin mounted trigger but for this quality of a marker, I don't think there should be any. Besides, I really like the stock trigger as it is a nice match for the marker and its perfect shape!

The macro line between the reg and the ASA is leaking some. I took the line off and its chewed up. I trimmed the very ends off of both sides to clean it up and its better but still leaking. Anyone have any experience with adding teflon tape to the macroline to get a better seal? What do you guys recommend for fixing the leak? I plan on getting some extra macroline anyways so is replacing the line my best option?

I have purchased a QEV that I am awaiting its delivery. Is the installation the same as an ION? I have downloaded the PDF from Smart Parts website but still a little confused. I will still mount it in the place of the middle banjo fitting correct?

I have little experience with the Volume Control inserts so with the QEV installed is the green insert the best option for acheiving the optimal PSI and still get 285 FPS?

I have my Dwell and ROFD set to acheive the maximum 17 BPS. With my ROFD set so that it allows plenty of time for the chamber to air up and still give me max BPS, this should not change with the QEV, just the Dwell, correct? I am very well aware of how to set the Dwell even after the QEV, just want to make sure I prevent shootdown and still maintain consistant PSI levels.

The stock board is plenty for me and my shooting style but I thought about adding visible's eyes for looks and just preference. Would I have to change the board or could I just buy after market eyes and attach them to my stock board?

I know its a lot of questions but I don't ask often.

My EOS din't come with the right allen key either, but it's the 2mm size (I think) It just says 2 on my multi allen key thing. It's really neat.

Perhaps you just are not going slow enough, maybe all you need is a touch more to do the trick?

Never heard of that happening. Maybe it isn't your macro line though. Might want to check that your fittings are sealing propperly, but since you said the end of the macro line was all chewed up, I'd replace it.

I do believe that it installs on the middle fitting.

I have the Green insert in mine, but I had to set my PSI to about 220 to get the correct fps (wanted about 260psi with 280 fps). I'd try it out with the dreen, but if not, just go one step down (blue I think).

After the QEV, yes, your dewll should be the only thing that changes.

And I'm not sure about the eyes. The stock ones work perfectly fine for me.

Hope that helped some

with the QEV i get the best results with the blue insert i think that is the one the online manual reccomends also, the only thing that will change is your dwell and i think your max ROF will increase a little bit.
As for the allen keys i reccomend just going to a home depot or somthing and buying an all size kit...just forreference the BOB allen key size is 8" your velocity adjuster in your reg is 4 and your grips are a 2.5 since all the sizes vary so much and i didnt even name half the parts you will be working with that require different sizes one of those kits help alot.
im also not sure about the eyes but i have heard the virtue eyes arent as bright with out the actual board but idk hope that all helps though

We do not use metric on our guns because they are made in the USA

Made in the USA or assembled in the USA? There is a big difference. Yes all of the allen wrenches are standard. Is it true that they don't include the allen wrench for the screws between the body and the frame?

I will have too look into it. It is a 5/32" allen wrench. Also.. all of our guns are assembled in the US. Everything that is metal, we machine in ourselves in our state of the art machine shop. Our boards are now made in the USA as well. The only thing we go outside the US for is plastics. Most everything else on all of our guns are here in the US. Not too many paintball companies can say that anymore

This is a very good reason to buy Smart Parts. Let alone the markers themselves. Thanks Sean!

Hmmmmm... interesting.... Maybe my Metric ones are wrong?

In any case, I don't think they make an 8" hex key anywhere >.<

the 5/32" allen and the 4mm both will work. The measurement on each is very very close.

8mm and 5/32" are the same size just like a 13 mm wrnch and a 1/2 wrench work. i am an automotive mechanic and yes i;ve seen an 8" hex key it weighed allmost 30 pound for stuff on oil rigs just like the big 5 foot 50 pound adjustable cresent wrenches (big tools are awesome!)

Really?

Not to be a butt. . . .but there have been more replies regarding size of Hex keys than there have been about the actual questions. Thank you to those that have replied on topic.

Well, I know that both Urban and myself have replied to most of your questions.

I'm sure Sean and some others can add on as well

For once... me and Impgod did not take it off topic together. This should go down in the history books.

you dont really even need an allen key to remove the bolt out the back. I just twist mine off. Though, you obviously need the same key for velocity adjustment.

On the macro line deal-yo... I think you probably have a macro line that was cut too short...than by shaving it up, it may have made it shorter...if you buy a new macro line and cut it down to size...with straight cuts...it should be fine. Slight macro line leaks were never something i cared about though,....hissss.
