humprey noids (must have?) is it a drop in upgrade on 03s

ok so i was just wondering about the humprey noid
if i get an 03 excal with mac noids is the humprey noid a drop in upgrade or no does it need to be milled? what years will it just drop in if any?

also whats the cps with the mac noids like 15ish most? the reason im asking is because i got some advice from the only guy who i ever met irl with an excal and he said the upgrade from the mac to humprey noid would be like upgrading from a shoebox shocker to an excal, its a must have.

First, Excaliburs have 2 solenoids.

Second, they are not drop in upgrades.

The Humphrey conversion does need milling and manifolds. All the 02-03s if it was not done would need it. The only drop in year is the 04.

From personal experience, Mac is nicer than Humphrey.

No, then you would just need to upgrade to humphrey noids when they blew. For now the MAC will be fine.

I just took out my 03 excal and shot a hopper. It has mac noids and it shoots so damn fast and so damn quite and so damn nice it makes me want to sell all my other guns.

But I would never do that.

Anyway, macs are great, I bet you could fix them if they wear out. I don't think they would ever wear out except the o-rings, and you can get o-rings anywhere.

o yeah and my excal is on its way. a nice champagne 2k2 with eyes rmod 4.2 some other stuff, some random barrel kit i never heard of before (2 inch backs aka spacers), and i think a fbm trigger and some other cool stuff. only downside is it has mac noids for 410$ but wasnt a horrible deal i just couldnt wait anylonger. dam my teamates r gunna be pissed (they always tell me quit with these low ends and sell em all and get an ego 7 or ego8) cause i prefer older guns like my karni, g7, or pm5. im also an oddball and i try and use warp feeds and my qloader when possible (im having 0 luck with the warp feed lately), but i think the qloader should be incredible on the excal. i really want to find a cheap working nova so next tourney i can be like o yeah guys dont worry i wont get a gun penalty i picked up my a new gat for once quieter than a dm7 (trust me they would assume its a dm8). and bust out the nova and actually use it. well maybe not use it, just carry it for the badass factor.

wolf or wulf i think.

also i realized yeah im definitly getting humprey noids if my mac ones ever blow cause coolhand charges 135 a peice for em when dc only charges 80 for humprey noids for that price the milling would prolly only cost me like 20$ extra compared to the mac ones and i would have somewhat of an upgrade ty all.

WGP, Angel, AKA and Proto are not low end. Thats all high end stuff. I would take any of those (except the angel) over an Ego. Ego's are WAYYYYYY overrated if you ask me. Sure they are light but thats about all they have going for them in my opinion.

Oh, I know where you bought that, or at least where it was listed. I wondered about the "fins".

I had a detailed discussion with Gene Hansen of Gorilla Paintball when he was teching a couple of Excaliburs for me. Gene said the MAC's are slightly slower than the Humphrey solenoids, but he feels the MAC's are quieter and a little more durable. With proper maintenance, you shouldn't have to replace the MAC's for a good long time. However, if one does go bad, I bet quite a few people here would be interested in picking up the remaining good solenoid as a back up.

lol i know they arnt thats why i keep getting them.
they also think closed bolt is dead an 100% pointless design because you cannot overbore with ****ty paint because you will get rollouts.
i love my 90 framed angel and until some1 else makes a gun with a 90 frame that can tell me the temperature im keeping it. i also like the sound of my cocker and the better accuracy (i am convinced that cockers are more accurate and closed bolt guns in general, (thus my sig), i can garentee you i snap better with my phantom with first shot accuracy than with my etek (thats the only gun they dont hate on even though it randomly turns itself on because of the way the button is right under your thumb when you hold it, i almost shot my frontman in the back of the head because we were running around the field with out guns up and i didnt realize it got turned on) and i love the sound of closed bolted guns. i also think that closed bolt guns are better in the winter due to the lack of a moving bolt once the paint is about to be fired. (proven by my pm5s ability to chop 80+% of the paint shoot through it when its below 30 degrees). i cant wait to air up my excal and shoot it.

also arnt the two noids different?

Yes, I believe they are. I've tried to switch the two noids (front to back) in a couple of my Excals, and they don't seem interchangeable.

As for overboring to compensate for inconsistent paint, they could try having Palmer install wedgits on their barrels.
