Confused by some weird terms used here at the Palmer Owner Group? Look for the word and definition here. Thanks to Craig Palmer for his help and time given, to for his aid with several Blazer terms, and to all who have helped in providing suggestions.

ASA

Automation Timing
Setting on closed-bolt semi-automatic 'guns. Sets the order and time of the necessary operations (firing, cocking, feeding, and loading.) Usually very sensitive.

Ball Detent or Détente
C-Shaped metal piece with a Delrin (plastic) ball at one end. Attached to 'gun forward of direct-feed. Used to keep paintball in place while chambering or when in mid stroke. Keeps more than one paintball from entering the barrel while the bolt is back.

Basic
One of Palmer's pump-guns. Uses 12-gram CO2 cartridges. Very simple.

Battle Grips
Grips that come stock with all Palmer 'guns with Sheridan (Palmer) grip/trigger frames. (Blazers have "PPS Grips".)

Bellcrank
L-shaped white plastic piece inside all Palmer semi-automatic grip/trigger frames. Pushed by the Timing Rod to lift (and operate) the 4-Way Valve. Also called "Monkey Arm."

Blazer
Palmer's newest semi-automatic 'gun. Lightweight, hard-anodized aluminum body, brass barrel and WGP Sniper grip/trigger frame.

Bolt
Component of 'gun used to direct gas to fire a chambered paintball.

Bolt Connecting Pin

well, I do remember way back when you were gonna sell me your old PGP, and then decided to keep it, and i said well if you were going to keep it, you should check this site out ( PPS)......now it was a while ago, so i don't really remember what you said in return...but it was definitely before you had and all that PPS stuff, all you had was the upped A-5 and the PGP at the time.

Good old days.

I took that PGP to local shop let my friend to tune it up for me.

He did as much as he could and told me if I want further upgrade, Palmer can help me.

Who is Palmer?

Same night I went on line did a extended research on Palmer, decided to keep the PGP and pay PPS a visits.

Then I told you the PGP is no longer for sale.
