Hmmm... odd. It's nice that they designed it for petroleum -- but it was my impression that not only can petroleum jelly harm synthetic o-rings but it's also far less consistent from brand to brand than white lithium or dow33. Make sure you only use jelly without fragrance or other additives that are designed for humans (lotion etc).

How much did you pick this up for if you don't mind me asking? I'm looking to get my hands on one now.

That looks like a very nice price being that it has the stock class feed aswell as the open class adapter. If I had the money for a second one I'd buy it.

If I had money, it'd be gone. My only hesitation is that it's openly admitted to having "a few quirks to work with". Who knows what that really means.

Yay! I've found some (total of 4) 12g caplets hiding away with my T9! Erm... I think I'll strip it down, clean out the dow55 and relube with petroleum jelly before I gas it up... Just to be good, y'know, because I'd already cleaned out the trigger frame 'n stuff. I won't have a chance to buy any more 12g's before the new year so I figure it's a good idea to cycle the correct lube through the internals before I run out of gas.
The Nova is an old (I mean old) pneumatic marker that relieved the idea of a moving bolt by pneumatically moving the barrel forward and back.


And I was wrong to say that it is a Mechanical Nova, as the Nova was mechanical (but penumatic). Instead this would be considered simply a Pump Nova.

Nothing against the marker or Metadyne, but from the few videos I watched on YouTube, it would seem as though the markers available are really still Prototypes with all the bugs that come with them.

EDIT:

Okay, so if any of you don't know how this gun works (I didn't before), the key is it uses a spring loaded rotating mass instead of a spring loaded sliding mass to actuate the valve. Beyond that and the barrel instead of a bolt, it's more or less the same as anything else.

Thanks for the info on the Nova. On the Thumper the barrel assembly is moved forward to feed the ball into the chamber and the rest of the parts don't move as far as I can ascertain... so I guess this would essentially be the same thing? Without having a Nova and taking both of them apart for comparison I can't be sure.
