Hey! (Posting during a mid-storm power outage....)

As with most spoolies, the bolt guide will start to show wear if it rubs against the bolt. This has occurred on luxes/shockers/vapors, droids/clones, and thresholds/g3-4 markers.

The leading cause of that sort of wear is due to mis-sized orings. I recommend you replace those orings with 013s. When I do repairs, I usually stretch out the new orings and put a little dow55 under them to make sure they don't move around.

I would also make sure your bolt is moving freely and that your breech orings are clean, lubed, and properly sized.

Hope this helps!

Hey Travis!

Which orings did you replace? For leaks down the barrel, there are only two orings to be concerned with; the front bolt guide oring (013) and the rear feedneck oring (017).

Double-check that the rear feedneck oring in an 017, as some people tend to prefer using 018s which may cause leaks.

I changed the 13 in the bolt guide, the 017 in the can in the front. Still have a small hiss as I put my ear in the back of the bolt cap. I will check the feedneck oring. Thanks for your help. If I can fix it than I like to send it in to you to have it tech and tune.

Thanks for the tip. I replace the rear feedneck Oring with the 017, look like it was a 18s. Replaced both orings for bolt guide with new 013. Still a small hiss. It was at the Feather Touch screw. I had it flush. Now I turn it in about one and 1/2 turn. The leak stop. Any suggestion on how the FT screw should be adjusted? It has just been driving me crazy. Many Thanks.

The FT screw should be at least slightly open. Literally all it does is control how quickly air from behind the bolt is allowed to vent. If you're getting a leak from the vent port, it could be something stuck in your solenoid, or your bolt sail (most likely). Personally, I like a responsive marker, so I don't mind compromising a little smoothness for responsiveness; I leave it flush with the back of the body.

And no worries buddy, that's what I'm here for. PM me if you want me to repair and tune your marker.

Hey all, quick update as I've been getting a few messages already.

I went in to the post office today, only to find a line going out the door and around the corner. When I finally made it to the front, I asked my buddies behind the desk how they were doin' with all of the black friday/cyber monday deals. From what I was told, my local post office is backed up by 2-3 days!

If you're shipping a marker to me, or expecting a marker from me, please be aware that shipping times may be a little longer than anticipated due to holiday shipping traffic. I am truly sorry for any inconveniences this may cause.

You're more than welcome to if you'd like, but I recommend you shoot it first and see how you like it to see if it really needs to be tuned.

Thanks for the feedback Joe!

Note: All markers that were in my possession over the weekend are on their way back as of 3pm today.

Also note: I don't give out my cellphone number for the same reason I check PbN only once or twice a day; I work at least 2 jobs at any given point throughout the year and I run this service on the side. I don't always have time to responds to your requests immediately. Please refrain from sending me messages every 15 minutes asking about your marker ... it fills up my inbox and it's just plain rude at that point.

Thx!

Hey All!

Important notice:

BE SURE TO CONTACT ME BEFORE SENDING IN YOUR MARKERS! If I get a random marker in a box, with a return address and name I can't read and no payment in the box or on my paypal acct, I have no choice but to let it sit here until I figure out who it belongs to and why it was sent in.

I fix markers, meaning I'm a repair technician, not a detective.

Thx!

A1 rammers are impossible to find in the US these days.

If you have an existing ram that is worn out, contact Chris over at Angel-verse; he can make the ram rebuildable and repair the rammer in the process.

If you need a new ram, start looking in Australia
