View Full Version : Smaller Coil set

Is there a smaller coil to put into the e-grip??

I tried google-ing it but I could not find any. I also tried some of the on-line paintball shops. I even went as far as asking my local paintball store.
still nothing.

haven't tried radioshak, or e-bay yet.

I'm looking for a coil that fits in the frame and not hang out side of it like standard issued equipment.

Possible just REALLY hard (your probably gonna need to machine a new one) and because it has less coils its gonna need higher dwell and be more prone to burning up at high ROF.

Yeah, but I don't have a press..and raw stock is hard to come by in a tourist city.

I'm just looking for a swap

Why do you need to do this? You could probably slim down the plate on the moving piece if its jamming on your grips.

Check PBN under voided warrenty for link on noids.

For one to be skinnier you would have to make it longer to equal the size of the coils.

Unless you used thinner wire...

Yeah..I'm pretty sure I remember its not the size of the coil its how its wraped..like say (haven't opened the inside of the noid) inside the noid the coil is wraped in 16 guage wire, there's only so much current that can pass through it.

Kind of like a 16 lane highway.

wraping the coil in 25-30 guage wire means that more current can pass through. plus it would be smaller due to guage size.Theoreticaly speaking it would be like opening up a 25-30 lane highway- going one way

I found this Wraith solenoid (http://www.airsoldier.com:8080/cgi-bin/mivavm?Merchant2/merchant.mvc+Screen=PROD&Store_Code=AOS&Product_Code=NPS-WRATH-SOLENOID&Category_Code=SOLENOIDS) it looks small but I know that its too long. I'm gonna keep looking on PBN for the noid that I want, thanks Iron.

hey K man its not messing with my grips, its just part of making my gun mine, you know. that little extra something. When you own a harley you'll understand.

I own a honda and I understand plenty fine.

You could prolly keep the same gauge & just strech the noid out to fit flush with the frame.. Have you thought about making your own?

11-27-2007, 07:37 PM
I've never made one, it dosen't seem too difficult. Could you please impart some of your knowledge on how to build one?

11-27-2007, 07:40 PM
Umm.... tear one apart & draw it out. Shrink it & strech it???

Higher gauge number = smaller wire = less current.

I took the stock coil apart just now. And there is nothing I can really do with it. A freind of mine said that C98E has a small noid in it. I'm going to see if I can find a pic of one.

*edit never mind its just as big.... T.T

Look at emags noids....I think their skinnyer.

I've found some emag noids but they are only sold with boards. yes they are thiner . anyone have one that could tell how long it is??

12-02-2007, 12:10 AM
solnoidcity.com or something like that. I remember finding esp noids & I think Emag ones also but this was a few years ago.

12-02-2007, 09:53 PM
thanks I'll look into it.

If I can find one that works, I'll put down a link to the page. I'm sure there are many that would want a different noid as well.


the site is good and it has loads of noids.

*edit #2

I found this solenoid (http://www.solenoidcity.com/solenoid/openframe/s-17-85qhp1.htm). it looks to be like a good contestant. Also this one looked good (http://www.solenoidcity.com/solenoid/tubular/s-63-38hp1.htm).
