Yup. Ordered a back cap (you pick your color) and a spool valve from Left Coast Mafia and it was about 200 dollars altogether.

I've tried to read all 25 pages of this thread, but that is a bit to read.

Couple questions:

In his video he just swapped the engines out, and adjusted velocity using the reg on the fly. Is this a completely acceptable way to swap engines? Or should you use a pressure tester to verify pressure first, THEN swap engines?

When you buy the Ripper V-Com, does the other engine come with a back cap, or do you have to order that separately? Again, watching the video he was able to just swap and go without a lot of to do about it.

And in the efficiency video, why did they switch barrels towards the end? Not that this will throw off the efficiency test much as they didn't adjust down their increased FPS to even gain more efficiency, but I'm just more curious than anything on this point.

Or it's like a browning M2 and the barrel started to meltdown from heat and awesomeness.

I ordered the bolt for my Ripper so I can tell you: No, it does not come with the back cap. You have to swap the cap from your current engine, which is only 2 bolts and takes less than a minute. just don't lose the o-ring between the two pieces.

All of these "changes" are minor and shouldn't prolong any waiting times for more than just a couple days.

The extra efficiency is not necessary, but I won't turn it down either!

I believe the barrel was switched because of the ice buildup. When shooting that much in the cold barrels tend to get icy and it causes barrel breaks.

Hey Tim, with all the new milling do you know what the VCOM weighs? Is it the lightest Vic yet?

No idea on what it weighs. I'm sure it's not lighter than a ripper though

The Lpr pressures for both systems are the same. So that is an acceptable way to change

The Spool bolt does NOT come with a back cap. You can however order one. I believe someone said it ran them about 40 dollars

Is it accurate to say you only need to swap the magnetic backcap (one with the vertical pin) NOT the back of the engine that has the 1x14mm oring?

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
