Lightbulb I think I figured out how to make a Wrath work with an ep solenoid. Thoughts?

So I've been searching for an Infinity Legend online to buy lately since they have dropped in price drastically and are very reliable markers. I've known the Wrath and Legend operate very similar with the FASOR design, but I never thought of this idea until now.

What if you simply remove the Wrath's LPR and replace it with a more "direct" design like that of the Legend's? Then use a Legend solenoid and board? I really can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work.

Thoughts?

Edit: Now that I think about, I think I recall someone doing this back in the day but milled deeper into the Wrath's LPR area like the Legend's design. My searches aren't turning up anything. Hope I'm not getting excited over something that was done years ago lol.

It would require some hole plugging, but that's nothing some thread tapping could fix then add some plugs. Or use jb weld. Or a little but of both to seal the plugs in.

The only problem I see is that the wrath's ram is designed to work at lower pressure (100-120) PSI, whereas the legend works at the valve chamber's pressure. Considering the wrath's heavier ram and light back cap, I'd half expect it to shake itself apart in a few hundred cycles. If I were to do this, I'd shave the lower tube's face angle to a straight 90ş and fit an evil 2k2 timmy block on it (they're cheap and have a short shank) using the wrath's already existing LPR retainer hole (you'll have to use a 10-32 threaded screw though) and then run the LP hose to this solenoid:

inside the flat top frame of your choice. If money weren't an issue, I'd also shave a ton of extra metal the wrath has around the top tube and the corners on the lower tube.

The only gain to be had from this is a more comfortable frame (and a lighter marker if you do shave it).

Yea only reason I would try this is because I've been modding my wrath for years and it kinda just died years ago and I wanna get back into it.

If I were to do this I wanna avoid an LPR all together.
I will keep that in mind though, thanks for the info.

The wrath does run off a higher pressure with the upgraded ram I have, can't remember if it's delrin or teflon lol. That could benefit for the paintball shot distance.

I also have some heavier and lighter ram springs I could mess around with as well.

You could always try fitting everything into an odyssey RPM body and frame:

They use a HP valve for the ram.

I never realized how similar the Odyssey RPM is compared to the Wrath. Then again I never looked it up. I will have to look into that definitely. Do you know if the valves are interchangeable?
