Can a nozzle return spring be too strong? - "180%" nozzle return spring in stock gold match?

@Marc.RG1

Not sure, but the 120 - 150% work fine do I'm sure 180% would too.

@Marc.RG1

Not sure about the nozzle but if you use a weak/stock nozzle with a 140% recoil spring it can shatter the nozzle quick.
Perhaps the same can be said (however slower over time) for a 180% nozzle return spring? - Could be a worth a test :P

Ha! It’s very easy.

 

Basically to keep the barrel dead straight, people wrap electrical/masking/PTFE tape around the inner barrel so it can’t move around in the outer barrel. And that’s it.

Does anyone know if the guys at [Redacted] who run the airsoft also run the paintball or are they two seperate companies?

Reason I ask is I accidentally booked in for paintball and they are refusing to move the date or change it to airsoft or even refund me. Kinda pissed that I just dropped £40 booking into the wrong bloody thing but I would have thought they 'd be more than happy to swap it around but they don't answer the phone and since my first email response telling me "tough titty" I've been met with nothing from them.

I know right? I should have just waited to book the 17th at Absolute, instead of contemplating this site. Their website is terrible and the main reason why I ended up booking the wrong thing.

 

Gonna try and get my bank to reverse the payment but not looking likely as I gave card details over the phone.

Just to clarify, I reserved on the site and then rang up and paid the £40 over the phone.

No the wiring needs redoing and the Dean's 10 pack doesn't show up until tomorrow afternoon. I'll be at Absolute next Sunday and might be at the Mall either 21st or 24th.

It sounds obvious but watch a few YouTube videos and take it slowly, it's not a hard job so just make sure you know what you're doing before doing it

 

Oh and don't touch the hot end 😂

I got a holder with alligator clips to hold the wires while I solder, it's like having an extra pair of hands.

 

Make sure you have a good soldering iron that doesn't take ages to heat up the solder.

 

Cheers

Breaking in mid caps. 

 

Is is it a case of 10 in, let them out, 20 in let them out and so on? Do they need to stay in for any length of time?
