Next, take a cutting head on a Dremel and cut the basic shape out, then take a grinding head and smooth it down (Could be done with sandpaper), and finally take a drill (or even put a drillbit into the Dremel) and dill holes JUST under the size of your screws. Lucky for you, Delrin is a rather soft material that you can tap yourself using the screws (just be careful not to strip your screws out pushing too hard).

ROFL. You can do this but will gripe about a flat tire?

I'm still not seeing where it's complicated... If I have a flat tire in the middle of nowhere (which has happened) it's a ***** to deal with (my spare was bad as well). I'd ***** about that.

But I mean really, a Dremel, a piece of paper, a pen, the material for the new trigger, and the stock trigger are all that are needed to make a new one.... Is this something I'll have to make a video to demonstrate how simple it is?...

I feel like the quality of the trigger would suffer tremendously.

I might as well take up mechanical engineering and just 3D print my own triggers?

Your profile says you're 21, so I'd hope you posess the skills to use a Dremel without any further certifications... A 3d printer is really not needed if you can keep safe control of the Dremel.

Put it in your sig, it'll help get more views when you post elsewhere.

Shot 1.5 cases of paint through the Proton today. Just one barrel break with some paint that was being chilled in an ice filled cooler. (it was 103 today)
Gun shot great, very consistent too. (294,295,295,291)
Great little gun for PSP style of play. Wish I could fine tune the bps to 12.5 tho. But no biggie!

You can by using the trigger feedback programming

I have an early model Proton. I didn't know that was available on the circuit board.

Thanks for all your help VW!

I'm reading the manual now and see no way to adjust to anything but whole numbers.

I'm loving my gun so far, no leak issues or anything, except I'm breaking random balls when shooting fast. If I put it on automatic to play around it will break a ball after about 10-15 shots. If I walk the trigger pretty quick the same will happen. Would changing the dwell or trigger debounce settings help anything? I've got it chrono'd right around 290fps so it's not shooting too hot or anything

What's your ROF and what loader are you using?

Played with mine for the first time last week shot great but it did run away on me in psp so I guess I have to go back to messing with my trigger lol but it shot ball on ball and consistent 290-297 and was getting a hopper and 4 pods with about 1500 left over. But I had to switch to semi cause of it running away in psp

ROF setting is the stock 25bps but I know I'm not pulling it nearly that fast, and automatic is capped at 10bps. Loader is an Invert Halo too

Could they be barrel breaks? What paint and barrel? Try a larger bore.
