Quick history lesson. I stopped playing paintball a while ago, and got back into it about a year ago. I picked up a Drone DX and it suites me fine, but I've been slowly rebuilding my trusty 96 autococker.
I've had to replace pretty much every seal in this thing. I've rebuilt the ram, the rock reg, replaced the 3-way with a brass STO...
All the leaks are gone, I've had to time this thing so many times I think I could do it blind folded. I have one last problem...
The main spring. I'm noticing whenever I try to shoot my marker I get a farty noise, not enough air seems to come out of the marker, and paintballs barely fly out the barrel.
This leads me to believe that I need a stiffer main spring, that over the course of just sitting in my cocker, the current spring is cashed. I've noticed ANS Gear has main springs for sale. 2 different ones in fact.
My questions are:
Do I need to worry about getting the right size hammer spring for a 96 versus a 2k?
Will one of these ANS main springs work? There don't appear to be any descriptions on the postings. http://www.ansgear.com/Autococker_Spare_Parts_s/301.htm
If it helps, my marker is mostly AKA internals.
Lightning bolt, tornado valve, and it has a set screw very similar to their hammer kit on this link: http://akalmp.com/misc.html
I suppose I could try buying the whole hammer kit from akalmp, but I'd rather save the 20 bucks if possible.
Thanks for any clarification offered.
