View Full Version : Don't Buy Miltec Guns

04-03-2006, 09:20 PM
I just got finished with a scenario game this weekend (Earth Ender scenario, Agate Colorado), and I took my brand spanking new Miltec G3 out and used it most of the weekend. During the weekend, my marker was chopping paint a lot (I broke 6 balls over the course of two days, everyone else I was with had a goose egg for breaks), and by then end of the first day, the bolt was acting sluggish, and my marker would start burping even though I was using a full Co2 tank. By the end of the second day, the trigger wasn't even actuating properly, and would fail to fire the marker unless pulled ALL the way back.

As for chopping the paint, I have no clue what was going on . My marker chronoed at less than field limits, but while I was chronoing, the velocity was all over the place, jumping around anywhere in a 20 fps range. Is that normal? and several times during the game, I felt like my marker was shooting hot, and when I chronoed with a ref, it turned out I was usually right. Any advice to stop the paint chopping? becuase now my marker is hardly even cycling properly, if at all, and I have a feeling the culprit is the broken paint gumming up the reciever and mucking up the O-rings.

If you break paint, you need to clean your marker as soon as you get out. That way it will remain at it's peak performance.

CO2 is very inconsistent, which would be the reason behind the inconsistency at the chronograph. You have 2 options: buy an HPA tank or buy a regulator. As long as you pick up a semi-good one, you will have better consistency and be happier at the chronograph.

BTW, welcome to the forum. Feel free to ask any more questions you have here! :)

Clean your gun, and lube it. +/- 20 is expectable with co2.

6 balls in 2 days really isnt that much. and that could have just been your paint.

What you need to do is clean your marker often, especialy if your breaking paint. Clean and lube everything... Like break the gun down and run water through it. Then clean everything throughly, oil the o-rings and reassemble.

^^... i wouldn't run water through it unless it was horribly bad .... but thats just me .. i hate drying out pieces ... **BTW if you do rinse your gun out .. take everything apart first ... if you cant see two wholes and see something or someone ... it's not fully stripped down ...**

Ball chopping!? Not acceptable! Get yourself a Tac One :)

You need to dry it? I guess if it's got steel parts like the striker......not familiar with the marker. Palmer's says take it in the shower.......but my GF said she's leaving if I get that personal with it......LOL.....so the sink it is!

palmer .. in water .. = not good .. unless you dry it out WELL ... and remember to put dow 33 back on it ....

meaning .. you should know how to dissassemble it and assemble it ... cuz your gonna need to do some of that ...
