Kind of, but not really as big as that.
I only drilled it out like double the size from original.

Woah! BIG HOLE!!
What did you use to do it with?
We mortals have only ordinary drills and a poor copies of a dremel.

Did the next step:

Made some milling on the rear, opened up the bolt area.
Next step: Get the upgrades from the post office and mount.

Whoa, massive hole in that VA, I wanted to do that, but I don't have a good cutting tool on my dremel, and No drill bit nearly that size.

How did you get yours to seal though? I drilled some holes in mine, but It refused to seal, so I ended up epoxying it (bad idea, but I needed it to play the next day...) Do you use teflon tape or the like to get the seal on the threads?

Monkey, thats an awesome job, what dremel tools did you use? (I want to try a similar job on my imagine...)

Also I noticed you got that basic e-trigger, and you now have a CIP Assault Block? (shame on you, I loved seeing that you got your gun down to 300 psi with all stock parts)

I still did get all down to 300 psi with stock parts but I wanted to do some cosmetics.
The e-trigger is only for lighter pull and looks. Not bps!

For the job I used
* 'Cut of wheel fiberglass' to make a clean cut
* 'Diamond cutter cylindrical' to even out the edges
* An ordinary steel file to get the edges straight
* Some 600 grit sanding with help of musclepower
* Then, finaly I polished it in two steps with 'felt wheel' in the dremel again

Took me some time but I like the results. The dremel got awfull hot at times.

It sounds to me as if you may have knicked the VA threads...only a tiny nick will cause a massive leak. You only need to remove enough of the floorplate to get the flow you need. The portion I removed is not quite as large as the regulator threads so the reg will screw-in as normal...and stop where it normally would. I started by drilling a hole directly in the center...where the pin-nipple is, then worked my way out-ward. I use Teflon tape...about 4 complete winds...on the threads of the reg and it seals just fine.

Part #115 -LINK-



Knicked threads? Could it really make the VA leak?
Isn't the seal (o-ring) supposed to do the sealing? (No flame, it's an honest question)
Anyhow, I put som higher density grease on all threads.
Thick enough to grab and loose enough to let me unscrew it.

Well, this morning I dremeled out my entire VA same as yours is druid, but the airflows the same as before apparently... I still won't recock below 450... I guess I'll be getting a cip assault block now... I had figured that before I was getting turbulence problems, but it seems either I still have them or somthing else is the problem, I know the reg is good enough, but I can't make sense of this...

Oh and about the VA, what I don't get is that the LPC screws in a bit less than halfway into the opening, mine is cut down now, but for yours, it should take up almost half of the opening you drilled, and the o-ring is what seals it, not the threads... =/

I don't get how Monkey's could get so low on modded stock parts while I can't get within 100 psi of that... Does having a gauge in the VA affect it any way?
