Prototype Striker Bumper.

I Just got word from EviL that I can now open my mouth.
There are a few prototype bumpers out there today for testing. I was one of the testers for the Silicon based bumpers and have found that evil is doing a great job on fixing one of the largest production quarks they made (not a bid mistake though) These New bumpers are NOT yet in the production stage, their is not enough for every one. If you play alot, say every week end, and you put ALOT of paint through your gun, you may consider giveing EviL a call for one of these bumpers. Evil has made thees in several different matteriall, some will work while others will not.

I had recock problems with the new bumper... I played a few games with it and basically I was using a pump gun since I had to recock it after every few shots (I still whacked 4 folks in that game ). I thought I had it tuned right... but that was truly difficult to do. If I put the pressure up too high I'd get chopping, and too low and it wouldn't recock... There was a very very fine line where it seemed to work alright but my recock pressure was a lot higher than normal. As such I went back to the regular bumper for the rest of the day.

It seems that since it was thicker and firmer, it wouldn't bend the requisite amount to allow the gun to recock. As such I've cut the new bumper down about 1/3 and now it works great. It can take a punishment and won't get chewed up. It has about the same amount of kick, if there is any increase its negligible. Good job yall.

i know a team who all play with omens here in utah and they all took their bumbers completely out. they said they kept shredding theirs and the fragments would jam up their guns. one guy said his hammer got stuck back one time and that is the only problem they have had by not having the bumper in. i am not suggesting you do this cuz i don't know if it harms the gun, but that is what they did.

if you have a perfectly set recock you will not have any problems(as the hammer is just coming back far enough to catch the sear) but if it's too hard then it will be hitting something solid inside there. and that is not good

I still think a chunk of soft clear pvc hose (wine/beer making hose) would work reasonably well. Just haven't ever gotten around to trying it.

A peice of PVC pipe may work if you can get the right size... mean PVC pipe hose feels about the same as the silicon one...
