I buy brand new GEO+ and i have a question: if I do not play reballs I do not need to install Black Volume Restrictor?
Gst kit for playing with normal paint is that only bolt with another tip? Only this tip of the bolt make small kick and smooth?
Should I set the dwell on the 14.5 ms when i play normal paint without Black Volume Restrictor?

Only use the restrictors if you want to shoot under 260. Otherwise do not put them in.

And it is advisable to increase your dwell to 14.5ms when using the ST kit.

I still have a question about the VVC screw: when I unscrew it i have worse performance but the marker will be smoother? Is that right?
And another: are You thinking that in the future will be upgrade for Geo+ with bolt system from Geo2? I think that this bolt system will be fits to Geo+.

By performance, I assume that you are referring to efficiency? Or maybe cycle rate? Those are the only things that might suffer by running a lower HPR pressure and longer dwell setting, which is pretty much the direction in which running the VVC adjuster all the way out takes you. On the other hand, your marker should become quieter and smoother.

I guess if we took things to their logical conclusion, running a lower pressure also reduces the cycle reliability (less pressure to push the bolt forwards) and makes bolt stick more likely, but we are talking relatively small changes in pressure, and in practise, it shouldn't really make much difference.

The Geo2 bolt kit will fit the Geo and Geo+, but there is no indication as to when - or even if - the Geo2 bolt kit will be released as an upgrade for the Geo.

I got a used geo+ and the outside of the bolt is stuck in the gun. Me and my friends tried to pull it out but couldn't. Before the first time i test fired it it was like this, but shot fine. When I played with it today, 2/3rd of the balls I shot dropped off. If I one balled, it didn't drop off, but when I laid down a stream, after the first few balls shot (which were chrono'd at ~295) the rest would drop off, and I wanted to know if the outside of the bolt being stuck in the gun would be the reason for so much drop off.

Have you tried adjusting the FSDO setting? How long are we talking between streams, or is it literally stopping firing and then starting again almost straight away?

Well, sooner or later you are going to need to remove the can in order to lubricate the inner o-ring but that probably isn't the source of your current problem. Could be that the battery is low, the dwell needs to be increased, the HPR needs servicing, the solenoid filter is blocked, or the ASA knob could be screwed in too far or not far enough.

it seems as if my board on my geo always thinks that there is a ball in the chamber, even if the eyes have been thoroughly cleaned, batteries replaced as well. any idea?

Any signs of damage to the eye harness? Any loose wires? Any bent or broken pins in the eye socket? Any dirt, paint or moisture on the board? Is the red eye wire on the right hand side of the marker?

Hi folks i bought a new Geo today. I want help to indentify if it has or not the GR2 Kit installed.
I cant indentify the Propshaft or the Regulador if it is new or not but the 3 screws on the Grip ( to acces 9v baterry and Set-Up button ) have the Blue tape on it, so it has the GR2 installed?

Remove the Prop Shaft from the back of the marker...(black piece that unscrews)...

Look at the front end of it. If you see 2 concentric circles milled into the end of the Prop Shaft...just in front of the O rings...it is a Gr-2 Prop Shaft.

The piston inside the regulator should have a brass piece dead center on the black reg seal in the tip of the post. This helps to hold the seal in place to prevent it from coming out of the piston.

If these are all present...you are okay. You have the GR-2 in the marker.

Yep, a fairly deep ring pressed in to that one. It has been replaced since that photo was taken.

These are no longer supplied for free, but it should be possible to purchase one from an Eclipse service centre or direct from Planet.

So yeah, my Geo just went down last practise ( the Propshaft cracked on the middle of 2 o-ring holes. I ordered a new one directly with my local Dealer, it will come as the GR-2 Propshaft?

Thanks !

If he is ordering it direct from Eclipse, then yes, it would be a G-R2 Propshaft.
