if i but an electric hopper on my rodeo what rof could i get???
thx:D :cool: :cool: :) :)

With a stock trigger? An electro hopper really wouldn't even matter. Gravity will feed balls faster than you can pull the trigger...6-8 tops, with a trigger job...maybe.

it is stock
what if i took it apart and made it a hair trigger

02-16-2006, 11:08 PM
mech frame ROF=how fast you can pull the trigger. period.

02-17-2006, 07:19 AM
ok thx
so if i got a hair pull on it like 8 bps???

02-17-2006, 07:36 AM
if you can pull it 8 times in a second...yeah :eyeroll:

02-17-2006, 03:56 PM
fine just crush my dreams

02-17-2006, 04:31 PM
I didn't say it was impossible...I'm not trying to crush your dreams...LOL...I guess I should restructure my comment...

if you can pull it 8 times in a second, yeah.

haha, yeah you should probably get an electo trigger for your gun ... just a cheap esp .. which are capped at 13bps usually ...

besides that .. i don't think you could pull 8 times a second .. unless your a twitchy man ... expecially with an unmodded trigger frame ... i probably can barely hit 8 .. if that ...

02-18-2006, 06:54 AM
You can probably pull 5bps on a mech frame. Maybe 6-7 with a good trigger job.

02-18-2006, 07:14 AM
all right thx
i was thinkin about gettin the refurbished imagine

02-18-2006, 10:02 PM
yep, spare parts, and an electro frame for just 64 bucks .. a pretty good deal i would havta say

02-19-2006, 07:37 AM
so if i got the imagine refurbed the shout i take the stuff of my rodeo and put it on the imagine
or take the esp frame off the imagine and put it on my rodeo

02-19-2006, 11:08 AM
i'd just say put the esp on your rodeo .. it's really personal preference though ... since you have no aftermarket parts on either correct ??

Just do what feels right :)

ya all i got is a barrel
but when i get the imagine i plan to one o those ACS bolts

02-20-2006, 08:07 AM
hmm, make sure to wear in the acs bolt when you get it :)

You have to break in the spring so it isn't stiff...otherwise you'll chop just like normal.

Place a barrel swab in the breach and dry fire a few hundred times to break it in.

makes sense
but that could be a little waste of co2

makes sense
but that could be a little waste of co2

If you dont want to "waste" the C02 then take the bolt out of the gun and compress the spring by hand.


02-22-2006, 08:13 PM
yep, or you can stick it in the freezer for 30 minutes, and then stick it in warm water .. never hot ... and then compress from then on ... but i'd do it with just 2 20oz of co2 .. since co2 isn't really expensive .. it's probably ... 8 bucks ... less than 1/4 the amount of paint ...

02-22-2006, 08:15 PM
but if i pull its a great workout (just joking)
i probably just use the c02

02-22-2006, 08:24 PM
hmm.. good idea ... probably would be easier ...

02-22-2006, 08:34 PM
and quick too
plus good practice for trigger pull
