V1 Backcap damaging my lens. Need help...

My mask has been getting scarred up around my nose area because sometimes I find myself firing my VIS(V1 body with all VIS parts) with the back almost up against my mask, and the vibration has been causing the V1 back cap to peck away at my lense, and it looks aweful now.

I recently tried putting my coworker's new T-Rex marker engine in my V1, and the cap l dropped into place and secured just fine, it just wasnt a perfect match with the milling of my V1 and I dont care at this point about it being an eye sore, I want a different back cap that doesnt stick out the back so far, and I noticed that the original VCOM backcaps are flat and do not stick out like most of the other Victory model caps. Would the VCOM backcap work as well?

Any Victory blackcap will work with any version of Victory. So yes, that Vcom milled cap would fit and work on a V1 Victory. I didn’t think the V1 blackcap stuck out that far ... The VIS blackcap may be another to look at and the milling may match the V1 closer.

You could also stop resting it on your mask. Simple solution. I can see how under tight circumstances you may need to do this to get tight, but if it's wearing your mask out, you may just have your tank set too short.

My VIS cap chewed up one of my lenses. I've managed to change my stance enough to keep it from happening again...

Sounds 100% like a stance/gun position problem. Its not your equipment, its 100% you. Its like asking how to not scope yourself with a rifle. Its user error, and your eye shouldn't be on or near the scope that much to begin with. Know what I mean? Put the tank IN your shoulder, not ON your shoulder. Don't jut your head forward. Its all in how you're holding it. I own a V1, and what you're saying has nothing to do with equipment. Its purely holding your gun improperly. I've shot just about everything under the sun. Been playing since 2001/2002. And I've never had this issue. My advice is don't hold your gun sloppily like people tend to do these days, and if its really a problem, get a tank reg extender.

My advice, break bad habits. I get if you're posted up in snake and you're in tight, you can't totally shoulder it. But I've never had that issue with any of my guns. If you find its getting too close, that's the perfect moment to break the habit.
