Looks like old nasty paint that got in between the fitting and the marker body. Get some air and see how it goes.

I also wanted to post to show the issue with the marker that had a different mechanism for changing the pressure control valve.

A Rip Clip is essentially a battery powered version of the Cyclone feed. It is made by BT.


Personally I feel that the Cyclone feed is the perfect hopper for the RT since they both work off the blow back gases. If everything is working properly all parts of the marker will cycle with each other.

Lol, the rip clip looks pretty sweet, but how heavy is it? How does it compare to like an Egg? Does having the offset feedneck reduce the efficiency of a regular hopper?

I had a cyclone once on a factory 1.0 X7. Enthralled with the E grip I bought one and put it on (an expensive way to do that). I put it on full auto and fired about 20 shots then bam, the plastic spinner parts broke. I was frustrated with cyclone feeds after that. I know that they make the aftermarket fluffy paddles but it seemed to me like that should have come pre installed!

I don't know why the Cyclone has been getting such a bad name this past years. I never had ANY issues with it at all.

I, personally, think Squishy Paddles are the biggest marketing gimmick that company has come out with. However, with that being said, the Vortex is the greatest thing the company has come out with. Unfortunately, since TechT has become more popular, they jacked the prices of everything up. When I bought the Vortex mod back in '07 at a scenario game, it was $20 installed. Now, it's $35 before shipping.

The Cyclone, with the Vortex mod, in my opinion, is unbeatable.
