I fix EVERYTHING

Hi folks,

I've never publicly advertised my services, but some of you have been using them for years. If you've seen Mike199's excellent "I fix Egos" thread, my routine is identical for my personal markers that I buy or for markers that I refresh, rebuild and rejuvenate. In other words, I'm highly detailed and hate grime/contaminants with a burning passion.

However, my expertise is not limited to Egos (feel free to leave those to Mike), but to just about everything - Angels, anything MacDev, AKA Vikings and Excaliburs, Autocockers, Infinity Legends, FEP Quests, Vanguard Demons/Creeds. Old, modern, obscure, rare, what have you. I've probably owned it and worked on it. And this isn't just limited to markers - tank regulators and other odds/ends, as well.


I'm an engineer by trade/education and have been doing this stuff for many years. To aid in credibility, please see the following posts that I've put together, just to give you a better look into my abilities and thought process:

Anyway, if you've got something that's giving you issues and you'd like to 100% ensure it'll function as it should when you get it back, shoot me a message. I've got an over-abundance of parts, seals and odds/ends in stock, a workshop devoted to mainly paintball and soft, conditioned workspaces for markers.

Do you happen to have a solenoid for 07 Ego, or can you perform the MAC 45 solenoid mod set out recently on MCB? A tech at this past D-Day said the solenoid is dead, and I am fresh out of those solenoids.

I will put this here for you as well my friend:

So happy to see this. I'd just like to make a statement for Imped as a testimonial.

I first messaged u/imped4now on PBN for some assistance troubleshooting a 07 Cyborg that was having some odd board issues. He gave me his personal number to text for help! Then a few months later, I was interested in adding a Cyborg RX to my MacDev collection of markers. We agreed on a price after he sent me photos and videos of the marker working/cycling. Upon receiving the marker I do what I do with all pre-owned marker purchases, I took it apart from top to bottom. Everything was immaculate. Spotless. All necessary parts were lubricated with the correct products, and everything was properly torqued and re-assembled. Then I went to shoot the marker a few weekends later... Again I was impressed. The RX shot flawlessly and was tuned pretty much perfectly electronically, all I had to do was re-sweet spot the LPR/HPR over a chrono (from my disassembly) and it was butter smooth and very efficient.

I can't thank this man enough for his help and selling me one of his prized babies Your contributions to the paintball community are appreciated man!

From one engineer by trade to another: This man's attention to detail is immaculate and I would not hesitate to send him one of my markers to refresh/tune or anything of the sort!

I have an Etek 3 AM and an LT both are having firing problems, everything gases like it should but when I turn it on and go to shoot, the bolt will slide back and forth like it’s firing but no air will come out of the barrel to shoot any paintballs, if you have any info on how to resolve this problem would be appreciated

I don't have any old MACs. Can you link me to the mod on MCB? I looked but couldn't find it. I can let you know if it's doable or not. (Sorry for the delay)

If you'd like to send them to me, just shoot me a message.

Since posting this, I've received, fixed and shipped back out everything from old cockers, gen 4 Intimidators, an Insight and a beautiful 03 Excalibur. Thanks folks!

Ahh the dreaded solenoid... First things first, quadruple check everything to be absolutely sure it's the solenoid. Most techs don't know the older egos anymore, even some PE certified techs sadly. It's not their fault, they've just been trained to work on the newer stuff. I wouldn't know what to do with a CS2 if I'm honest (though I recently picked up my first gamma to tinker with).

Here's some common areas I've seen with 07/08s that were labeled as a bad solenoid:
1. Battery without a full charge
2. Improper board settings and/or dwell that isn't set properly
3. Screwing the HPR adjustment screw too far out
4. Worn piston seats
5. Bad QEV diaphragms

I check absolutely everything first before deeming it a solenoid. They are getting harder to find and have shot from $150 to $200+ in the past 6 months. Though they're still out there if you know where to find them. There are a couple people trying to reverse engineer them to reproduce. That would make everyone's life easier, especially mine

Feel free to PM me if I can help in any other way, including finding you a solenoid

Thanks for the shoutout bud!

To be fair, I've worked my way around older DMs, Intimidators, Shockers, Impulses, Aliens, etc. Most recently I've been getting very familiar with autocockers, specifically the Eclipse variety, and I am good with LVs and IV cored markers/early Geos. But you know what they say, if I have a heart problem I call my cardiologist, not the general practitioner. I love 05-08 Egos, I can take them apart and rebuild them blindfolded, so that's what I focus on.

If I get inquiries that I'm not familiar with (Vikings, Cyborgs, etc) I'll send them your way!

This is the thread I've been looking for!

I have an Ego 10 that I recently rebuilt with all new o-rings. Went out to test it today and noticed the first shot was hitting like 330-380 no matter what i did with the lpr/hpr screws. Subsequent shots rapidly would drop down into the 230-280 range. I took it back apart and noticed the HPR seat was almost all gone. could this be the culprit? have a new piston on order and hoping this fixes the problem. If not I would love to chat about sending it over to you for your assessment/expertise!

The seat should take care of that but if issues persist, just message me.

Thanks for the super fast turnaround, my geo 3.5 is shooting great, no leaks, or skips and trigger is better. I’ve already recommended to teammates.

Not likely since the screen itself can't be repaired. If it's an OE Tadao board then you'll need a new board - either a GTI or more recent RXOLED.
