Some idiot at the local paintball shop stripped the threads on my stock chamber so im just going to upgrade it. What else would you recommend for upgrades?
Would you recommend a rocking trigger or something else?
I have 14" CP 2 piece barrel and an electric hopper.
I also play woods ball more than speed ball

just the hose input threads?

ACI, 32*, etc. all expansion chambers are the same.

I wouldn't get an expansion chamber at all. Since you have to replace it, go with a regulator. CP, Bob Long, Palmers and AKA all make great regulators. Do you use compressed air or co2? If you use co2 get the Palmers.

If you're going to put a combustion chamber on your marker, a bomb shelter would be a preferred item. ;)

Expansion chambers will not do much, and you can find regulators for about the same price that will do something. Look around for a used Bob Long Torpedo. You'll need a metric macro fitting, a 90* 1/8 NPT macro fitting (preferably swivel), and a foot of macroline. You can get the fittings and macroline from www.sundragonpps.com and the regulator either from SunDragon, in the B/S/T here or other forums, or on eBay.

What kind of hopper do you have? If it's a Quantum, look for something else.

I took it to the local shop and he put a regulator on it no charge im not sure what brand it is though. I use co2 and my hopper is a view loader i paint balled yesterday and the regulator made the gun perform a lot better and the gun no longer leaks so its ll good thanks a lot.
Would you recommend any other upgrades or not?

A ViewLoader... what? They have the Evlution (1, 2, and 3), Revvy, Quantum, Vlocity (JR, SR, Dynasty, XSV), and gravity fed loaders.


If you're happy with it, don't mess with it. That's what's important. :)

i heard the 20 slows down the ball to much

it doesn't really slow it down, it uses a little bit more air and imo, it's a pain to carry around on your gun

Because using a quantum is like sticking chunks of lead in a blender, it's slow, monotonous, has a chance of breaking and rarely gets the job done. If you're still going to try and get a loader on the cheap. Look at the Invert Too, Empire Reloader II (not Reloader B or B2) or a Viewloader Revolution or Egg, all of which should be simple enough to find on here, PBnation or Mcarterbrown in the B/S/T (Buy/Sell/Trade) sections.

That's why you get a loader that isn't constantly on... if you get one and it still bugs you, your ears are too sensitive.
