The volumizer didn't break itself. It wasn't machined incorrectly. It did everything it was supposed to do.

It bent when he jammed it into the ground.

Heres the deal: WDP is not liable for any part not made by them for their marker, if it didnt come installed, its not their problem.

The company that makes the volumizer did not march into your home and slap it on your marker. You bought it, you installed it, any damage is your problem.

I'm with Dark_Recon on this one. It wasn't his fault, but then again it wasn't much the company's fault either. He's just tryin to find some info so stop cussin at him, he didn't know. If it is bent and the threads aren't messed up then just take it off. If it looks cool bent then leave it that way and say you did it yourself. Otherwise try a machine shop or just cut it off or somethin and go without a volumizer.

Smashing your gun into the ground is not the best way to keep your parts with lots of leverage from breaking off your gun. Sorry man, this is your problem, not Twisted's

Angel_23 you aren't stupid. But you did do a foolish thing and also you think wrongly. Parts are only warrantied for certain circumstances. You can't make Mercedes buy you a new car because you totaled it driving 80 into a wall. Samething. Secondly I don't know how your bent the Volumizer but it seems like you like to use your gun as a shovel. Basically I'd see what you can do. This incident is not the fault of any company that you bought your product from. You best bet is to start saving up for another Angel.

Remindes me of a funny story, there was this guy we call "Church Boy" because he normally can't play on Sunday due to church. Well one Sunday he skipped church to try out for a team and his gun actually caught on fire. It wasn't anything god did though, he had put a single finger frame on his gun the night before and pinched a wire which led to the fire. But we havent seen church boy on Sunday since then.

This is totally the users fault. If you put a new intake on your car, and it causes problems, it's your own damn fault. Stripping your right tube threads is a bad thing and generally unrepairable. If I were you i'd get a ERA and hold it in with a pin. Also take care of your gear more.

I have a dark LED, when I bought the gun the barrel threads were COMPLETELY stripped out and the few remaining threads were cross threaded. I'm not talking small threads like the LPR threading, im talking about the giant threads where the barrel screws into. Anyways, give angel parts a call. There phone number is on there website @ www.AngelParts.com, I sent my gun into them and they completely fixed the threads, you cant even tell they were stripped out.

It is not that expensive either... and if you don't want to pay it then i'm sure Twisted would pay for any repairs it.

Accord they fixed it because it came that way. Angel_23 broke his on his own after owning the gun. And they didn't fix your threads, most likely they just gave you a new body.

???????????

You MORONS are the reason so many lawyers have a job and stuff costs so much more (to cover bonehead litigation)..

Did Twister or whoever make you:

Quote:
and while i was playing i took a dive and somehow the volumizer shifted and now i've got a crooked volumizer
I didnt think so. You and anyone that thinks, they should pay you, for being rough on your gear, ought to be slapped.

I cant believe you have the gall to even ask that question in public.

Well nt to add to the flames but to answer the guys question the Twisted Volmizers are made by WDP themselves I do think.I may be mistaken but Im pretty sure thats who makes em.

So I guess thats why they sent it back to me with the same stickers, same scratches, and same everything? It's called rethreading. I bought the gun used, not new.

You actually think that they can just give you a new Dark LED body? hahahaha.

I personally dont see why people use volumizers. They offer little or no performance gain and in my opinion look ugly. THey are also just another thing a ball is gonna hit. Stock caps all the way.
