It finally happened...

Well, this past weekend Nixx's Dits prototype finally broke.....

After well over 100 cases of paint, and using all the factory equipment, the reg spiked and blew out the solenoid (booo hoooo)

This gun has been in use EVERY weekend since the WRG at Skirmish with the exception of maybe 2-3 weekends and all runs made with it were logged carefully....heres what we found:


All factory settings with the exception of BPS, which was turned up to 20, barrel, reg and all else were factory stock.

Out of 1 45/4500 fill, a Crossfire HP tank was used, we averaged about 1300 shots per tank with minimum breaks, (1 per 1500 rounds)

The bolt looks beautiful, not even degrading the o-rings, the ram looks brand new!

We did have to replace the plexi cover on the grip when it cracked due to a hot shot (the player was shooting 340's when we caught him) at under 30 feet

Battery life was an Astounding 50,000+ cycles off the first battery, and were still working on the second.

When the soli went, the player using it kept going for 2 more games, and had a velocity of 250, even with a shot line, and a bleeding soleniod.

Now as this was a factory bench tester/proto, I have no clue on what they did, or used it for at the factory. Not even how many cycles they put though it. So Ill be blunt with this statement....warn the filter...

We beat the **** out of this gun, and finally it asked for a vacation


I have NO complaints!

It is never a smart thing to shoot me at high numbers I am not a "nice" person comming at you with a crono either in hand or in reach..the first shot hit the plexi...the second hit my hand!

I've taken way to many to my head. I can deal with stinging body parts, but when I become lathargic from a hot shot to the head, the rule book goes right out the window Hun, I go right to the ref whilst the offendor is unaware, and we take them to chrono, and if it's a spiky reg we let them slide with a warnig to fix it.
By the way Nixx, don't let Winter do all the talking around here

From what I know in my talking to staff at AM, the earliest Diadems had a normal looking grip frame with the battery in a box attached to the bottm of the gripframe, sandwiched between that nad the drop. They had no eyes at the time and were regged down so as to pinch paint rather than chop. AM felt that that was a better sytem to prevent chops rather than eyes. PB'ers being PB'ers kept saying "Does it have eyes? I won't buy it if it doesn't have eyes." Well what do you know, AM puts eyes on it, but not before the DCT. It's too bad, too, because While I never made it to any events I hearrd that although they were capped at 14 they had chopping problems, (with Halos) and were turned down to even less. (10 or so.)
Now, current Dits and the protos share the ram, bolt, and solenoid, while the battery has been relocated inside the frame and eyes added to the current model.

Frylock,
It is true most of what you said about the early proto DITS. They removed the battery box and put eyes in because players wanted them, but the opt pressure for the LPR was run under 50 psi. ball breaks were not an issue but, when using the eyes we pushed the psi up.
Also the protps had the valve spring adjustment like the senti's do. AM wanted to simplfy the system. We shot all the stages of the proto DITS. and really didn't have many chop issues.
My Proto, was the last bench gun before mass prouduction. It was sent to me to be ran at the World record Game at Skirmish USA.
The Look,feel,and action of my gun is no different other than comsetics Than Winters or Loki's DITS. she has a new drop and different on/off.
I run her at a steady 20 bps..and have the Halo B with the new board.
She is the Red/Black in the pict.

You can say that again SPLATTT. If any one around here knows that its us. Also I am sorry to hear about the mishap with your Dits. Anytime anybody's gun goes down I feel for them. We can all relate to down time.........it sucks.
