ProMod's Marker Repair Thread!

NOTICE: I will be out of the country between late October and mid November. All markers that were previously in for work have been shipped out, and I will not be taking on more work until I get back.

Hey All!

For those that don't me, my name is Tony, and I am the author of the Vapor Tuning Guide. I've worked for several years as a gun tech at NewBreed Paintball, and I've worked on a wide variety of markers. (DC2s/Cockers, Pneumags/Xmags, Blazers, Sheridans, Ions, Egos, Vapors, Luxes, DMs, PMs, NTs, Spyders, Clones, Spyder-clones, Minis/Axes, Impulses .... you get the idea.) I've had several requests to do marker repairs via PbN, so I finally decided that it's time for me to make an official thread.

Here's My Service:
~$35 for a clean/lube and tuning of your choice. That price includes return shipping as well.
~$10 for anything I need to solder
~$?? for any hard parts that -need- to be replaced. I'll contact you if the need arises and we'll figure out pricing with the marker's manufacture.

And here's the fine print:
~"Hard Parts" constitutes anything that isn't an oring, lube, or common sense. If I have to pay for it, I need to pass along the fee.
~I reserve the right to refuse work on any marker I deem a liability. These include: Frankensteins (shocker/ion hybrids, shocker/ego hybrids, etc.) and markers I'd have to make tools for (think older sheridans with threaded valve stems; I only have autococker valve tools).
~I only ship back via USPS Flat Rate boxes because of their reliability. I've had issues with Brown and FedEx is too slow.
~All fees will be discussed beforehand. If I crack open your marker only to find something that needs to be replaced (think threadlock in the solenoid) then I will call/contact you immediately to figure out what you would like to do.

And thank you muchly for all the help Promod, and your tuning guide worked awesomely

I certainly wouldn't have mine working without his settings.

I own an SB so I'm quite familiar with them. And I can't email you buddy, PbN says you've chosen not to receive emails from other members. (It's a setting that you need to enable in the user control panel)

Promod saved me a bunch of time pointing me to the exact problem with my Vapor. I was able to resolve the issue, but Tony offered to have a look if I was not able to.

He is in the know about the latest updates Machine is working on.

Glad to hear your Vapor is back up and running! I wouldn't exactly call myself 'in the know', but I do tend to get questions answered when I ask enough.

Glad to hear your vapor is behaving itself now!

And it's gotta be both. The Vapor is a really stable platform and it's easy to work on which makes my job of tuning it a hell of alot easier.

So I've got a very interesting problem here, it appears that my BOLT GUIDE has suffered some wear and I have no idea why. I've attached a pic to show you were the wear is (the wear is IN FRONT of the oring). Its only on the upper part fyi (one side).

http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c2...funow/bolt.jpg

there are no leaks but the wear is bad enough where its no longer ROUND SHAPED and its pretty rough to the touch.

Any ideas? Any help would b appreciated, thanks.
