VL Force an a pressure switch



I got tired of having to turn it on and off on the field, so i installed a pressure switch.


UPDATE: now a look at what i did.

I removed a plug and so broke the circuit, then soldered the pressure switch where the plug was.

Above the on/off switch was a clear plastic slug that had no real purpose. I removed it and threaded the cord through the hole where it used to be.

The first thing is the clear plastic slug. The second is the plug i took out of the circuit.

It doesn't run constantly, like the regular VL Force does.

I'm very interested in how you did this. I bought one at Walmart under the mistaken impression it was an Eye Force, and I'm stuck with it now.

nope no intelli trigger. its just an on off switch separate from the hopper itself that can be activated by applying pressure, hence pressure switch. The pressure pad will be mounted on the X-chamber where i can press it with either my thumb or forefinger, depending on hand position.

So when you press this pressure switch and hold it down, the hopper feeds? I thought you put the pad inside the breech and had the weight of a ball activate it, which is what 03/04 Angel Speeds came with instead of eyes (they called it "Sensi"). You might be able to rig something like that together actually, but it'd take a good amount of work..

So it's sort of like those switches you see on weapon lights on the foregrip of rifles? Nice idea, and looks good too.

Mount that so that at the end of the trigger pull it presses that button down. That would be awesome.

someone did something similar to this, but he took and installed the switch inside the feedneck of the hopper, same principle just no cable running from the hopper to the gun.

I tried to do the one in the hopper but it had to be lined up just right and i couldnt get it to work. I might do this except that I cut the micro switch off. When I did do it though I cut the wire look on the connector and solder my wire to the wire on the connector.
