That's "mostly" correct. The screen doesn't tell you how to enable the timer display (hit the power button twice).
One of the manual somewhere tells you to pull and hold the trigger to disable the eyes (there is a gun manual and there is supposed to be a Frenzy 5.0 manual but the other OLED manual at least explains some of your choices, but the Mil choice doesn't seem to cap at 12.5)
Below are some observations:
Great shooting gun.
I like how you can remove the trigger without disassembling the gun, and I like the trigger. The trigger spring is not adjustable and only there to prevent mechanical bounce. If I turn off the eyes, put the gun in semi-uncapped, and dry fire fast the gun will bounce. When shooting the gun with paint, even if the eyes are off the gun doesn't bounce.
1. Must have pressure tester. On first day with gun, later in day gun stopped shooting. LP reg needed resetting. You can get into the general range for the LP on most Timmys by listening but I had a hard time telling the difference on the G6R.
2. Recommend running either LP or SLP because of O-ring between ASA and grip frame. I was running 800 psi tank output, reduced it to 500 psi and started hearing a leak. When I removed ASA, I noticed that the O-ring was pressure deformed and squeezed out of it's recess so that the lower pressure did not seal properly. I believe eventually, at 800 psi my o-ring would have failed. I made sure my ASA was properly tightened. I recommend that everyone check ASA tightness.
3. I tried mounting the Critical magnet return kit on the stock trigger. Doesn't fit. If you put it on the trigger stop screw the trigger can't move. To put it in where the return spring goes you'll have to drill and tap the stock trigger and mount a magnet on the solenoid. Not sure I want to mount a magnet on the solenoid because the solenoid uses magnetic force to run.
4. When running a Prophecy V1, I must turn sensitivity to max so the hopper can keep up with gun when in semi-uncapped. Sometimes ball jams. running hopper drive backwards through rip-drive is the easiest way to restart feeding. I believe, partly this occured due to one of my 9v contacts breaking so I was running on one 9v so the gun works great until game start and I'm ODT (On Da Trigger) enough to require more amps from the single batter than it can supply.
The stock bolt is very air efficient but the gun is loud with it. I tried increasing the dwell to slow the "pop" but that doesn't seem to help much. The pillow bolt seems to quiet the signature but it also drops the fps by about 70 or 80 so I have to turn up the pressure. I'm still playing with the TECHT bolt. It has better air flow than the pillow bolt and only drops the velocity by about 40 fps and it definitely quiets the sound signature enough that I can hear the "ping". My gun test data sheet has the LP set at 93 psi and I may try changing that so that the "Pop" is less but I will have to see if velocity consistency stays good. One of the online manuals state that I should start with a LP velocity of 70 psi.
I really, really like the OLED ease of use but it would really, really be nice if either the online manual has directions specific to this board use or if there was a separate online manual for it. I think the sheet that comes with the gun has some hints.
Note to self:
-To get the timer to display, turn on the gun, then hit the power button twice. Pulling the trigger starts it even if the gun does not fire. There's no way to stop it. No alarm. 10 seconds added automatically. Max=90 minutes.
-To turn off eyes: pull and hold the trigger while the gun is on. If you don't want to shoot a ball, dump the air.
I got the blue/teal and I like it but I like the darker blue more than the teal. If I get a second one I will probably get a blue/silver. The blue matches my CP back, and the Gloss Blue on my Freak kit (not the dust blue).
I am comfortable with adjusting the Timmy but someone else might be frustrated with having to adjust. I'd recommend spending a day just playing for fun with the gun before using it for practice.
I have been shooting Timmys for a long time, but my last main gun was a Shocker NXT because it was quiet but I need more shot capability and someone hasn't returned my GZ yet. I've identified the TechT bolt as quieting the G6R, is the LP poppent a worthwhile upgrade to make my G6R more quiet?
I've tried increasing the dwell while using the stock bolt to quiet my G6R but that did not seem to make a difference.
