Fx Asa and Other Issues

Sorry if this is stupid... bought an FX on here and it just arrived today.

Anyway, what I'm wondering is on this ASA the Raps Lever won't fully close and it seems as if the magnet isn't working as it doesn't snap close at all.. Going to take it apart and look tomorrow but wondering if anyone had similiar problems and whether it's an easy fix or not.

Another issue is I noticed the inside of the breach is almost completely stripped of anno as if this gun was never lubed... is this going to be a major problem?

It's most likely the oring inside of the raps not seating properly, really easy fix

The anno shouldn't be a big deal as it wears out as you use the marker, just clean everything well to include the rammer housing, lube, and go shoot people

The raps lever after just normal use becomes bent. It's a common thing and will just happen.

i'd just check the orings in the RAPS, and possibly bend it slightly back into shape if u can. Its one of those things u have to make a mental effort, but when i use the raps i always place three fingers on it to apply even pressure and avoid bending it

I'm confused. I'm looking at the description of RAPS and...

"Patented magnetic locking lever has been specially designed and tested to withstand the abuse of hardcore tournament play and the rigors of backwood scenario games. "

does the one your looking at have the DP logo on the side??
or even a spot for it.. cause there is another company that makes ones that are magnetic. however a real DP RAPS has no magnets..

Interesting had no idea... anyway I replaced the o-ring and stuff and it still doesn't close fully. Lever just must be bent.

They actually may not have the one you need. I assume your Threshold has the older RAPS on it. On the older ones (like on my Threshy and F8s), the lever doesn't extend all the way to the back when closed and doesn't have that little bend on the end. I think the DP site only has the newer ones (like on the G-series and REV-I markers). You may want to give them a call during business hours and ask a sales rep. I have found in the past that they actually have some stock that is not listed on their site.

My Threshold is fine - it has the older RAPS with the shorter lever. It's the fx that has the newer raps with longer lever that's bent. I don't see those o the site though

Oh, my bad. They have those on the site. They are the RAPS II levers. Just go to this link: http://www.dangerouspower.com/DPShop.php click on "parts" on the left side....and the lever is the 4th item down. They are also listed under some of the marker parts sections too. The pic only has black and silver so if you are looking for a specific color, it is still best to call them directly.

Yep, no problem. It is kind of strange that they aren't under the FX parts menu too.
