So my tech took the ZR1 apart and found that an aftermarket part had been used on the ASA and that part and the brass ring mashed together in a way that made them inseparable. Additionally, a piece of metal from this part broke off and found its way into my bolt system. Anyway, all fixed now, hopefully the velocity issue was down to that.

Well, wish me luck and I'll post the size if I figure it out or I'll tap it for something I can buy. I'm dying to shoot this marker. I really hope it rocks.
Ok, got it in. Gun has a great feel to it. Popped the top on it and took it to home despot. Matched the body to a 4/40, well it screwed in a quarter inch fine. No set screws of course, going to dremel a slot and trim the screw a bit. I guess locktight and leave it overnight. Wish me luck.

that sounds like it is going to work.i would just see if it seals w/o the loctite first if it will than apply a very small bit.. not that you will ever want to take that screw out again. but if it doesn't seal and you have it loctited in you may not be able to get it out

I feel like your advice may have come too late as it appears he has done this already based on the 3 AM post lol

Anyways best of luck with that and hopefully it is sealed!

Lol. First "she" and secondly, I have some purple locktite that I use for set screws on triggers. I was guessing that the bodies were contracted from over seas and was expecting a metric to fit best. The 4-40 is 2.8 mm and it screws in super easy. Maybe I need a 3mm, not sure. In the end jb weld is always the last resort. Would mess with reannoing though.

My apologies!!! Its amazing what I could have discovered in 3 seconds by looking at the word "Tiffany" located underneath your username...

Has the screw/loctite set yet?

You are correct that the bodies were contracted over seas to an extent, I believe the first batch was done there but after some discrepancies with the manufacturer I believe they have since shifted production back to the US. At least that's what I gathered from all the research I did before getting my ZR.

Ok, found a 4/40 set screw. It seems a little loose so hit it with low strength lock tight (purple) and let it sit for an hour. It sealed up fine and cronoed at 310-315 with a very loose ball fit. I can hear a slight leak from the breach. Guess I will hunt for that next. Also has a 1/4" gouge in the breach that I polished a bit then cleaned. Seems not to be hurting stuff.

Lastly, I'm concerned about a good bit of wear to the shoulder area of the bolt. Looks like a lot of scratches on the aluminum and the area where the body contacts this. I cleaned it out then relubed with hater sauce. Perhaps grit, rock, metal shavings that has been removed.

Overall I'm happy with the way the gun shot. It seems kinda tall, coming from shockers and a bl closer. If it's reliable and I can shoot it well, I'll sell my closer and keep this as my scenario gun.

It will serve you well. If you need a pressure tester I can show you how to make one out of an old reg

I saw a few pages back that someone was having issues with barrel breaks. Well I have been having issues with chopping. I have done everything, messed with the lpr and hpr (between 200 and 215) tried different barrels, ninja UL reg with 3 shims removed (550 psi), cleaned the eyes, relubed the bolt, anything and everything I can think of I tried. This was my first time using it and when it shoots it shots AMAZING, so smooth and quiet. But It chops 1-5 balls every 20 shots (psp 12.5). I have a tournament coming up this sat and It needs to be fixed by then. I'm going to the field Wednesday, so if anyone can help me out or give me some stuff to try I will. I was shooting polar ice paint and it was between 20-30 degrees. But no one else was getting any breaks or chops.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ate they barrel breaks or chops. It could be a battery issue also. More info is needed on the issue

Chops. And fresh battery was also put it in it this morning. The jist is I'm getting a lot of chops (not barrel breaks). What more info do you need and I will provide. I just would like to solve this before sat so I can play.

Chops are caused by 1 of 2 things
1. Too much force on the ball when the bolt hits it. I would double check on how high your lpr is. Set it to just enough to cycle than 2 more notches
2. Too much pressure on the ball stack or eyes not reading properly. This could be in the eye delay setting or dwell is to high also.
I would reset pressures and board to factory settings than bump dwell up a couple to combat the cold. That would be my starting point

You have to think of the bolt as a valve. If the LPR is not high enough, at high ROF it doesnt open all the way. I was getting a ton of barrel breaks. Cole told me to raise the LPR and viola! It felt right before, but it wasnt. You could also consider raising the dwell a bit also.

My modded foamy bolt that I posted a pic of a page or two back was in response to my ball breaking issue.
