SleRpy 626 Tuesday, August 29th, 2006
Period of
Product Use:
3 months
1 year
Products Used:
Stock hammer - Polished stock hammer
Marker Setup: New Spyder Imagine:LP, Palmer reg, Tornado valve, modified stock bolt, Quiet Riot, Empire Reloader B.
Strengths: Very LIGHT/light
Weaknesses: I had some wear issues. AND not working issues
Review: Well, I got the marker and after a couple of games I decided to do some upgrading. The Dark Horizon hammer was on the list. I ordered all the upgrades in span of one week. Two weeks after the other parts came, I finally got it in the mail. I was seriously filled with joy when I got it out (at first I didn't think anything was in the envolope) immediately I noticed how light it was compared to the stock hammer. A couple of days later I put everything on the Imagine and tested it. Presure 360 stock springs fired burp burp (sounded exactly like thet) ok so I increased spring tension. Bad Idear. BUUUURRRRRRP I constantly tinkered with operating pressure, spring kits, etc trying to get it to work. After hours of 'tinkering' and 500 paintballs I felt discouraged so I took everything out of the marker checked everything and noticed that on the hammer there was an amount of wear on it (yes I oiled it every now and then). So after every stinkin peice was put back together I pulled the bolt back until cocked I let go BAM dry fire. What the hell? I checked the sear and sure enough it was just catching the hammer. I recently put a piece of something behind the solenoid to reduce the throw needed to release the sear. Pulled out that something thing and problem solved. I still can't get it to shoot over 240 FPS.
Conclusion: I only shot about a case of paint through it but a case was enough to stop me from using it. I will probably try again some time but right now I would rather not deal with the problam again. So the lesson of the day is light hammers are good and bad and good, but if your like me (luck with me sucks) I'd just polish the stock hammer.

And about that wear problem, I think that it wouldn't be able to stay cocked in about 4 more cases of paint!!! It must be that titanium is strong in some areas but not others.
