Unhappy Just came back from a decent Sunday

I've had some problems with my Pimp that I need enlightenment on.

1st - My LPR is set at 120 and the dwell is at 12; I am looking at the LPR and I watch it creep up tp 170 within 5 minutes.


2nd - My bolt is to far back, and my bolt adjustment screw seems to be stripped. Is there any other way to get it to turn? Maybe from the inside of the Ram Cap?

3rd - Since the bolt goes a tad bit to far back, sometimes the ball will roll away from the eyes. I will shoot a string and then when I hit the trigger, it won't fire; obviously the ball rolled back. Then I tap the bolt, like a little tap, not a shove. All of a sudden the gun shoots, but I didn't pull the trigger. When I say tap I mean like not even a flick.

Help Me Evil Forum, when I'm playing, I pay to much attention to fixing my gun on the field, then playing the game and its pissing me off.

I already did the bag trick, I did it the night before I went out; heard the air squish out and everything.

remember, the pimp holds a shot for so long...so you pull the trigger and it doesn't fire, then you immeditaly tap the bolt, it puts the ball in place then fires

Ah now that makes sense. I realized I was being a damn *** and forgot I could turn the eyes off. But what about my LPR and the stripped bolt adjustment screw? Should I rebuild both my regs? As for the bolt adjustment, should I like take the cap off and turn it from the inside? I noticed that theres a 1/8th allen wrench fitting at the back of the Ram Shaft, but all the does is turn the ram.

I hope I'm not screwed...

If you have the money, pick up a std lpr when it comes out (february sometime, I asked ) and/or pick up a lighter reg (shocktech/cp). I'm not dissing evil or anything, but if you tried the bag trick, id say just try a new lpr of a different brand.

So I guess there is no answer to my bolt positioning screw...?

Maybe Boss will stop by and read my problems. He's the beast who know alot more then I do.

i had that same problem, all i had to do was take out the bolt and put it back in for it to work. if that doesnt work,maybe mess with the posistion of your ram?

I have 2 brand new pairs of Polished Clear/Violet Iridium Oakley Frogskins. They are almost impossible to find brand new, PM me if you want a pair.

There are 2 ways to get the stripped Ram adjuster out. 1. remove the ram cap, put it in a vise (use wood or something to pad it) with the adjuster facing up, tap a easy out into the adjuster and remove. 2. if you can't do 1. heat up a 1/8" allen wrench not a hot with a torch or over the stove, push it right into the adjuster then quickly run it under cold water, this will set the allen wrench firmly in the plastic adjuster. Now if you burn yourself you did not hear this from me.

Now buy the new ram adjuster the has the plastic screw with a steel jam nut. I know they are not on the site but they should be later today.

My problemd isn't really getting the wrench in, its when I turn the wrench, you feel the screw not turning. You know like, when you turn the wrench and you feel it go over that bump and you know you've stripped it. I'll try the heat thing, I've seen my dad do that before.

I'm still unclear about what the 1/8th allen wrench turns when you put it in. Both the Ram Piston, and the Ram Piston Adjuster have 1/8 allen sockets. When you turn the Ram Piston, that just twist the ram not doing anything.

But heres a picture to show what I'm talking about.
