These, my friends, even did not stop it.

Well what the ****... this is kinda ruining the gun for me. I love everything about it, but this..which is actually a somewhat large problem for me.

Calling Valken tomorrow, not expecting to get a "this is how you fix it" answer, but more or less letting them know that it's a problem.

Those are still alkaline, right? I was thinking lithium may help. Consumer Reports found lithium outperformed alkaline in most applications. Maybe it's worth a shot?

Definitely.

Matt, if that Proton doesn't work out I've got a perfectly good Smart Parts Eos with a 7th Element I'd trade

Haha no thanks, I'd rather have this

I think we should compile a bunch of useful info for the front page. Maybe I'll do that a little bit today as I woke up for work, drove a few miles and had to turn around.

No. I traded it for a Star framed Etek 2 with a zick, TechT Kush bolt, and a cure bolt plus an E1, TechT L7 bolt, and Hyper 3 reg. I can guarantee that I'll be buying another Proton at some point, but I've always wanted an Ego of sorts so I couldn't turn it down.

LV1's are great guns. Kinda different but awesome. Other than that Sl74 and 11 are my favorites.

Damn, that's quite impressive!

Keep the trigger pull longer, I've also seen that it helps to put some oil on the clapper noid (it stopped my runaway issues completely).

Me using the Proton yesterday, ended up using an ego 11 shortly after this unfortunately. It wasn't a good day for me to try and get used to a new gun.

1) A bit of child labor is totally cool for a SL8R
2) Got that in my pocket
3) I'll pay your rental fee
