  1. So after messing about for a bit with this again I think I've gotten to the bottom of the missfeeding issue. Turns out the feedlips on the mapleleaf bucking were protruding into the hop chamber just a lite too much. The bottom of the lip had curved/squashed upward ever so slightly causing the bb's to stick. Dropped in another bucking that I had (think it's a Gaurder 70) and the lip is fractionally shorter allowing the bb's to feed much better. Now just to sort out the timing issues for the drop in fps when on auto. Kinda going back to scratch and have a new cylinder, cylinder head,
  2. Thanks, no harm in trying that. Ive seen posts/comments of people drilling out the ports a little and suggesting it helped so may give this a go too. Ive got spare piston heads that although have fewer ports in them, they are larger so i guess i could try swapping out aswell before changing gear sets
  3. Probably many of us in the same boat. I guess I'll take this one on the chin and just go with a lower gear ratio to get it running.... and start again on another one. I'll never learn, doesn't matter what it is, that the whole point of having a work bench in my garage and a dam comfy stool... can't help but tinker with stuff👍
  4. In all honesty the the purpose of the 12:1s were to increase rof and see what I could get from it running efficiently but as time as goes and trial and error proves this ain't working I'm leaning more towards 16:1 short srtoked and taking one of my other gear boxes and trying a dsg for a higher rof. It's all very much a learning curve for me and I see/read so much knowledge on the forums that I try to replicate. I've done a few home builds before for my son and never had issues but then they have only been low stress boxes so simple to do. This has been my first attempt at a high s
  5. Thanks yeah I totally get that about someone calling hits.... So possibly what I'm looking at is dropping in a 16:1 or 18:1 short stroked in your opinion? I wouldn't be opposed to that as high rof isn't the ultimate goal with the build, + 25 - 30 is sufficient to satisfy me so long as I get reliability. I think if anything, I want to know the cause of the timing issues and how to resolve them but if I'm gonna have to admit defeat then so be it. Don't want to drop to 7.4's cos just forked out over £100 on a few batteries with higher amp output to cope with the draw. New gears again it is t
  6. So is there a possible solution you have in mind other than saying that would be the problem. I appreciate that it's an SSG build with high ROF rather than a DSG but I'm by no means the first to use a short stroked 12:1 gear set with an HT motor. I can't actually categorically say it's on 40 rps as its miss feeding, could be mid to high 30s...
  7. No but tempted to do that, along with trying a different hop there is also the possibility of trying a different (slightly shorter) air nozzle just in case that has a negative effect for feeding on auto. It's like I need to go back to the drawing board, return everything back to stock and then replace internals 1 piece at a time until I find the root cause. I kow that sounds sensible but I don't want to start again haha
  8. I've tried 2 tappet plates and the spring is cut by 4 coils now. ROF should be around 40 give or take depending how accurate my chrono is. Batteries are 11.1v lipo, 2600 mah 25/50 c so kicking 65 amp semi and 130 amp continuous but need that to cope with the amp draw the titan was reporting and the batteries getting extremely hot. Yeah cylinder is 3/4 ported, I'm half wondering if the shs piston head or o ring is too tight in the cylinder (got signs of scraping/rubbing) and if even though the head is ported to expand the o ring on the release stroke if the pressure against the in
  9. HI folks, Im looking for a bit of help/advice if possible with a build that ive been working on. I posted recently regards my batteries getting hot and draining quickly and i got some sound advice that helped sort that out.. so thanks to those who gave their input. Im still encountering a different problem where i cant get a consistent FPS between Semi and Auto and drop by about 70-80 fps in auto. And sometimes a bit of miss feeding too. So the gun is on an M4 platform and consists of the following: SHS 12:1 gear set - now short stroked by 3 teeth (pick up side)
  10. Really appreciate all the info from Iceni on the batteries and will as a temp resolution get a bigger battery that will provide enough juice. I'm also in total agreement with Pinman that I need to find the cause of such a high amp draw. Considering everything is new I can only suspect it to be a combination of factors on resistance from gear ratio x spring tension putting stress on the motor. But, I could be completely wrong..
  11. HI Asomodai, i honestly couldnt say regards the TPA. The motor is certainly maked up as being HT rather than HS. As mentioned in my earlier post though ive tried a few different motors and the results are pretty much the same regardless of which one i have in.. in terms of the battery. RPS varies obviously between the different motors ive tried. I can certainly try it with the AB turned off but i dont think that will make any odds as the TITAN was only recently fitted and i had the same issue prior to installing it. Before i put the TITAN in there was only a basic trigger switch and n
  12. Thanks for the reply, Ive tried using a mates battery which has a higher draw than mine, his are 30C/50C where mine are 20C/40C and it had the same effect of the battery being killed within a matter of moments. Are you suggesting I try something bigger than 50C continuous?
  13. HI All, Firstly i'll introduce myself as i usually sit lurking in the background, scanning other peoples threads/posts and researching/ collating all the info i can to help me with my own project builds. So.. My name is Lee and go by the name of CABER - yes the Scottish pole and thats because im Scottish with a Polish family decent. Been playing Airsoft for a little over 2 years but not new to pew pew by any means. Have been seen on the Scottish fields for many a year but previously slinging paint - yes ive converted..... Also captain of our team - The Nomads (probably a
  14. Looking forward this, no doubt it will be another fantastic weekend put on by Taz, Tracey and all the staff. Have been to Tazball for his big games in the past (Paintball) and I've no doubt that this will be every bit as good a weekend. Always great banter, live music at night, friendly staff and honest players. If you've never been then your either in for a great time …. or you're missing out!!
  15. Just dropping in to say hi. Im new to Airsoft but not to the world of shooting (ex paintball player) Taking this up as I cant be arsed running round the woods like a lunatic anymore and looking for a more tactical sport. Will still be playing at one of my favourite sites which is Tazball in Inverness. I'm based in Aberdeen and know there are a couple of local sites so if anyone fancies a tag along then give me a shout..
