Palmer Glossary

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.

Air Source Adapter. Where air supply is installed.

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.

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".)

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."

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

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

Bolt Connecting Pin
Adjustable screw at bottom of bolt. Used to cock back hammer.

Blazer component. Aluminum. Connects Ram to Q-Pin. Also has Bolt Connecting Pin at bottom to operate Hammer. Can be nickel-plated.

Constant Air. An air supply that allows for large amounts of gas to be stored.

First semi-automatic paintball gun ever made. Built by Glenn Palmer in September, 1988. Glenn's personal 'gun. Not produced for sale to public.

Classic Typhoon
Dual-Bottle Typhoon usually with several additions, such as louvered fore-grips, special nickel finishes, extra nickel-plating, etc. Built from scratch only. Nickel-plated brass body.

Connecting Arm
Black metal L-shaped piece on Palmer Typhoons, Nasty Typhoons and Hurricanes. Connects Pneumatic Ram to Bolt.

Cup Seal
Pneumatic seal inside 'gun valves. Can be replaced.

Type of valve on all Palmer 'guns. Requires Sheridan Valve Tool to remove.

4-Way Collar
Metal ring to keep Palmer 4-Way Valve in place.

4-Way Valve
Component of 'gun inside grip/trigger frame. Cylinder with three (3) ports on side. First (top) port is to the rear port of ram. Second (middle) port is to the regulator. Third (bottom) port is to the forward port of ram.

Low-pressure. Refering to gas-source systems that can operate at lower pressures.

Nasty Typhoon
Dual barrel Typhoon. Built from scratch only. Nasty Hurricanes, pumps and others are also available. Available in "Side by Side" or "Over and Under" barrel configurations. Nickel-plated brass body.

Over Pressure Relief Valve
Mechanism on Regulator to prevent extreme over-pressurization. If Regulator pressure is too great, it vents to relieve itself. After resetting, pressure is set to normal operating pressure.

One of Palmer's pump-guns. With wooden stock. Nickel-plated brass body.

One of Palmer's pump-guns. With direct-feed and QuikSilver system. Nickel-plated brass body.
