Vanquish 1.5 Updates - Technical Details

These updates will be available starting Feb 28, 2014. The updates are free* and will be given to all current Vanquish owners

Here is a quick explanation of what the updates are and what they do.

DETENTS:
Spring loaded detents for people who want to use the optional bolt spring and want to leave it installed during storage.



ROD/SPRING:
Conical spring and modified the tip of the rod so that the spring clicks into place. This helps prevent wear of the rod and extend spring life.

Black = old, Silver = new

BOLT TIP:
Nubs to the bolt tip face to prevent the ball roll back in the breech and to prevent the ball from sealing on the face of the bolt tip which would cause suction.

Left = old, Right = new


BOLT:
Groove added to front of the bolt to hold tip in place and prevent tip damage. The difference between the red and silver bolts are the exhaust hole in the rear. This causes the red bolt ("Soft Shot bolt") to cycle more slowly in tern causing less movement of the marker. The soft shot bolt may not be able to maintain rates of fire above 13.5bps in all cases so we also included a new stock bolt as well (silver).



Black = old, Red/Silver = new


2 Options to get parts:
1) You may contact us and send in entire marker. Your current eye covers will be modified for the new detents. Your Vanquish will be examined by a certified tech and sent back with all the new updates installed.
2)You may contact us (info below) and get the parts sent to you. You will be given new eye covers in dust black only with the new detents. Also since each Vanquish is individually polished the new eye covers will not be quite flush with your marker (though it will be very close)

What about people who got their Vanquish on the open market? Are these updates still available at no cost?

Email them, i just emailed and asked to have the upgrades sent to me. All they needed was serial number, rod color and shipping info. I as well purchased mine on the open market.

Very happy new owner, and I'm still gonna swing that Empire flag. Got my Vanquish on a Monday night, a 1.0. Called Kee Canada Tuesday morning, received my 1.5 upgrade package Thursday night. Empire was great with my Axe and now with my Vanquish. Can't wait to let'r rip this weekend.
