Review: i was very very weary about buying the kit cuz i have a response trigger AND cyclone
feed system, both of which rely on heavy blowback gases for power. there fine
though. i had to fix a leak in my response trigger hose, the barb that attatches to
the miny hose inside the trigger frame that leads air to the outside of the gun
got budged when i was installing my bigger hose diameter fittings for r/t and cyclone
for low pressure. i fixed this by supergluing it on the tip of the barb, where the r/t
wouldn't leak. no problem, i test leaks, while not gased up, by screwing in the
adjuster for r/t all the way in, to block all air from going through, than taking the plunger
/piston kindof sideways and pulling it out that way, cuz it leaks when tilted, than
pushing it in perfectly in line. if there is no leaks, than it will be incredibly hard
to push in, and will just pop back out, but if i wantt to put it back, i'd have to tilt
the piston or it'll be impssobile to stay there.
i expected to have to drill out the t-intersection on the verticle adaptor that came
in the kit, but it was fine, no blockage, tippmann must have corrected the problem.
i did have to drill out the verticle adaptor thought larger hole and added another one
cuz low pressure needs higher volume. the kit was VERY interesting to install as
i had to mill the reciever all over the place to get the halves to fit together, the
interesection of the vertcile adaptor was too large, or i couldn't squeeze it in
enough. idono, it was fun anyhow, you'll probly have some minor fitting problems too.
i screwed everything together, and ran it on my marker high pressure to see if
i could take advantage of it, with high pressure, so i could use the low pressure
chamber like a expansion chamber, BIG MISTAKE. well it started to leak from the
bottom and than the oring at the bottom cap bulged so i called tippman and they said
they loktite the bottom cap onto the low pressure chamber and i should be able to
unscrew it to relieave the bulge in the oring. turns out when they SAY low pressure,
they MEAN low pressure, my fault. well it took an unparralel amount of force to get
it off but the oring was fine after i put it right back in and tightened it back with my
own loctite. the next day i got my palmer stabilizer to make it really low pressure
i also have no rear cocking, thanks to my dark horizon ti hammer. at first there
was no difference at all, and i was having trouble getting enough blowback to
fulfill the needs of my response trigger and cyclone feed system, but that was
because i wasn't shooting with balls. after 80 shots of paintballs, all of the sudden
everything changed, the small leaks that i had, even though i carefully applied
teflon tape, were no longer leaking, and the sound of the gun changed SOOOOO
much. it now sounds like a high end marker and shoots like one too. at around the
same time i got the change in sound, my shots were BANG on accurate. i'd never
seen such a phenomenom before, but i could easilly hit a target WAY far away every
single shot. the paintballs weren't spinning anymore wahtsoever. also i notice i
get more shots per fill, but i love the no recoil from my ti hammer, and no rear cocking
is great too. this thing is awesome man. nobody is gonna ever hear me shooting at
them from now on, plus because accuracy wwent way up, i can now hit things way
farther away, giving me more effective range as well. the best thing is the sound though
now when i shoot i hear nothing, where as before, the neighbors dogs would all bark
like crazy. it's so quiet that i can shoot at birds and aside from the paintballs flying by
they have no idea what's going on, they don't flock away like they used to cuz of the
noise. i'm a sniper in paintball so i love this thing to death. ps: i tried my stock
barrel and it's still perfect accuracy. so as long as you have the lpk, accuracy will
be perfect, and no barrel, not even stock, can take away accuracy from this lpk./
i had to buy a madman spring kit to use this with my ti hammer. the response trigger
and cyclone feed work PERFECTLY now that i make sure there is balls in there so
as to actually give me blowback. without balls, there is none or very little blowback,
so don't be surprised when you dry fire, and your cyclone or response trigger doesn't
do anything. initially, i was stuck at 550 psi lowest operable pressure, but since i
stuck balls in there, i can get her down to around 200 psi, that's CRAZY tight. 200psi
sounds exactly the same, just as loud as 550 psi though, the only difference is the
velocity. one more thing, in many cases of 2000's of paintballs fired since installation
i am still yet to break a ball. this kit litterally transformed my marker to high end.
also, my rear velocity adjuster just sits there and my front is flush with tube making
no interfearance of air. all i do to adjust velocity is change the pressure from my
palmer regulator, which i use with my CO2. very simple, much more efficient.
Conclusion: It is the best thing ever for many reasons, as long as you are persistant in
making it work, it's the best.
