The SFT shocker was a solid platform. At least get an HE bolt and have it spring modded. You should be able to find a spring modded HE fairly easy. The eigenbolt is supposed to be great if you can find one. Mine had a NDz v2 or v3 stinger that I had spring modded. Good little shooter. I also had the pins that hold the trigger and board in tapped for screw-pins rather than the stupid pins they originally used. Not really performance, but it drove me crazy that they would just slide out whenever.

The problems with the ano were a result of the aluminum they used. As I recall, the metal SP used aluminum that machined better but didn't take ano as well. Something like that.

I always keep my eye out for a broken or for parts SFT to pick up cheap and play with. A black SFT was the first paintball marker I ever held/used.

Ive got a Black SFT that I put a borg frame on and milled it for Break Beam eyes. Im running a TechT sprung bolt with zero issues. I absolutely love the gun.

Ive built many many many Pnue mags both electric and mech, I will say that it is worth it. If just for the project!

PostPosted: Thu Jan 30, 2014 7:34 pm    Post subject: Re: taking a walk on the wild side.

I've been researching on the sft for a while now, it does have the he bolt and i was looking into other upgrades but i think I'm going to rule them out for now unless i can get them for cheap. I played with it stock in the cold and had a bit of bolt stick which i know the sprung bolt setup will cure but i have other markers that i can use when it gets cold out so I'm not too worried about it. Plus it shot extremely smooth and fast, I cant wait to start messing with the board settings and get her dialed in.

I've spent so much on fully upgrading markers that I don't really want to go all out on them anymore. I'm starting to lean toward mech play more and while i still love playing with my elecros, I have done more damage on the field with my tiberius, cocker and while I was in Michigan I used a rental tippmann tm-15 and really enjoyed it.

I will continue to collect parts for the markers I have, so when I have enough I can build what I want to. I always enjoy a good project. Most of my bushies have been built from spare parts, so once i have the sft taken care of(i probably wont build or buy another one), I will probably start a pnuemag project. most of my focus is on getting the mag sealed, get my vm68 working again and I have a few side burner icd markers that are being finicky.

thanks for the link kwik, I will get a hold of him about the backs and see if he has a vert asa so i can finish that marker and move on.

IF you don't have the time, or its escaping you, i can go through the mag, or at least, go over it with you on the phone. it won't be the first mag i've fixed over the phone but classic valves are extremely easy to work on.

I shouldn't have a problem but most of the orings I have are not sealing it, so I'm just going to buy a kit and that should take care of things. I just have to order it(along with a few other things). If that doesn't work I'll be more than accepting of help. Thank you for the offer. I have a ton of time on my hands at the moment. I've been through it a couple of times but the oring kits I have are from harbor freight and none of them are urethane.

the one great thing and coincidentally downfall is that the orings are either urethane or teflon, which you can't just throw anything in there, but they generally last a long time, cause the there is barely any moving parts in the gun(basically: trigger, trigger rod, on/off & bolt + spring). but they will eventually wear out if not oiled . also, if you get a kit, make sure you replace the blue bolt bumper, that one is important.

Also that guy who's sale thread was posted on the front page of PBN hassome SFT stuff anda cpl freak backs as well, I think he was asking 35 for them.

I am torn lately with the desire to buy something I have to do nothing to and just works great out of the box(new or used) or if I want to continue to do projects like the freestyle, PM, even the PMR I have spent half as much again on as I paid for it.

And also doesn't strip,very well. I ruined some sp pieces trying to strip the anno. It pitted the aluminum really badly. I've never had that problem with any other manufacturer's parts.
