Review: The Tippmann Spring Kit comes with 4 springs for adjusting your velocity.
High, Med/High, Med/low, Low

When I received the Spring Kit, I planned on using the Med/Low Spring to lower my overall Velocity and open up my Front Adjustment on my X7

After putting the marker together, I noticed it would not cock. (No Air, manual pulling on the X7 Lever). Replacing the Spring with any other Spring including my Stock Spring allowed my X7 to cock. Upon further investigation I noticed that the coils for the one particular spring are very close together. The Pitch of the spring is very low compared to the others.

What was happening was this one spring would 'Bottom Out' before allowing my Hammer to catch the Sear.

I email Trinity for help, asking them if this particular spring was suppose to be like this, or if I had a defective one.

This is the conversation from Trinity...

Hello,

I have recently purchased the "Tippmann Trinity Spring Kit" for my
Tippmann X7.

I'm having a problem with the Med/Low Strength (Blue) Spring.
The spring bottoms out before allowing my marker to re-cock.

What I noticed different about this spring compared to the other 3 is
that the coils are too close together, and they will touch and the
spring stops compressing
before the hammer is allowed back far enough to catch the sear.

I would like to know if this is a known problem, or if I have a
defective spring.

Thanks,

This is not an acceptable answer.
The purpose of a Spring Kit is not to just replace the existing spring
with one of the four and be done with it.

The purpose of a Spring Kit is to offer different varying velocity
options for varying situations.
Such as a lighter spring for fields that require 250 fps, and a heavy
spring for high pressure/High rate of fire situations.

Each Spring should work and allow for different velocity ranges.
Your answer is akin to a defective back to a 2-Piece barrel kit and
saying, "That's the reason we offer 5 Backs to you barrel kit".
This is not the case, all backs are required to be in good working
condition, as is all springs in the Spring Kit are required to be in
good working condition.

Please offer a better response to my question.

Thank you,

This jerk knows full well it would cost me more to mail it back than the money I would get back from it.

So not only did this Spring Kit NOT work with the X7 as advertised, but the Customer Service from Trinity is terrible. So I wont be dealing with this un-intelligent moron again.

Conclusion: This product did not work fully work with the X7 although it is advertised to do so.

I will give this rating higher than 0 because it may work for an A-5 or 98C (unknown at this point).

And 3 of the 4 springs did work for the X7
Rating:
4 out of 10
