interesting note

Yesterday(and maybe once before that) played in a tourney, walk on field hadn't turned on the egg2 yet, kinda fergot to. When i fired though, instead of a normal blank fire, it burps. Not to upset bout it cuz it had happened before, only when i don't have paint in the gun. Just interesting to know that (my) sentinel hates to dry fire apparently. This happen to anyone else? If so, anyone know why? Would this be the power of lower pressure?

lower pressure definitely, without the backpressure from the paint you're having a hard time getting the power necessary to shove the bolt back. i reccommend you raise ur pressure, but thats just me ur call though, i've got mine high enough that it wont burp even without paint at high cycling

heck yeah, i was gonna go with the halo tsa, but then i got the egg2 fer x-mas, and mounted it on the senti (its now permanent with the rise they included; so i have to unscrew it off). but i made the right choice i believe after seeing the tsa become a paintblender

Hopeless, keep us posted on if the pressure increase helps out. I won't have one of my guns out there not working!

Speaking of low pressure stuff, I just thought of something on MY gun that could use a little bitty tweak. The pin that goes through the body and holds the valve at a certain point (so it cant go too far back or whatever) shoots a nice lil jet of air out with each shot, and I'm figuring that that lack of a seal is helping it to skip shots once in a while. Also, I like my guns efficient... regardless of the size tank I use ^.^ Any idea if there's been a design change? I think either steve or Ram said something about a tighter-fitting one, and I've got upgrade fever. Any idea Andy?

Hmm, I would pop it out and throw some blue loctite on it and put it back in, let it cure for like a day and see if that helps the leak fromt he pin.

Hey man, all I do is sell them! Perhaps you could use some sealant, but I'd call Big Ernest here before doing anything like that. The valve is one thing that you don't want to screw up.

You could also put some teflon tape on the screw and it will seal just fine. Just remember not too screw it back in too tight or you will mess up the seal of the valve.

nah drak, the screw's just fine best valve i've ever had ^.^ But the lil push pin that goes through the side of the body (on the marker body, a lil above the point between the safety button and the trigger-pivot pin) that vents air.

Ohhh, sorry i must have misread your post. That's definitely not right. Locktite should fix it, that's not something that you need to take out very often. Make sure that the ribbed side of the pin comes out first.

Ehhh, technically it is. But depending on how tight the pin is now, it may work. Quoted from http://www.warpig.com/paintball/tech...te/index.shtml :

LoctiteŽ fills in the small space and, once cured, provides 100% contact with the thread surface area. This increased contact area dramatically increases the force required to remove the bolt.


If you let it cure it should fill in any gaps and (hopefully) create a tight seal.

YEah just don't go crazy with it and I would have the striker out while you applied it and let it dry for good reason.
