The CPS 1200 that AC Tyhpoon of my team uses is broken. This was one of our best guns. I think the trigger is busted, he got an EES Turbine and a Storm 600 to replace it, but only something like a CPS 2100 or bigger could truly replace it. Hopefully our team gets a really big and/or good gun next year!

tip doomsoaker gave me on triggers: use a thin strip of metal epoxied onto the curve of the trigger to brace it. that's how I'm going to fix my cps-2500.

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.

I made any article on how to do that. It has pictures and a lot more trigger repairing. I would post it, but it's on my personal PC upstairs. :cry:

It all depends on whether the bar on the inside of the gun is rusted througn or not. If this is the case it will be a lot harder to fix.

Go here to read a the Trigger Repair article from the new SSCentral design. The design is NOT done. I'm still working on it. For example, the horizontal nav bar will have a special navigation script soon, the logo will change, the colors will change, ect. Also, all the images are not there, so where it says INSERT PICTURE, I have to add a picture. It's just a note to myself. :P

Well thanks. ^_^ I still need to take some more pictures and add a bit more things to the article, but right now it's looking good.

btw I found a couple major security flaws in the link script I wrote while testing it yesterday, so I'm going to rewrite it using my sCMS as a codebase - after all, how hard can it be to convert a content management system to a link script. :blink: (yes there is method to my madness. and my sCMS is pretty secure.) off topic!

Ditto. Im working on my 2500 right now. Ima inexperienced user to mods, and I placed the strips the wrong way. I got them off, but when I saw the picture from here, I was re-encouraged.

EDIT: Doomsoaker, I can't thank you enough. An 8 year old gun will be back in duty soon. She has a lot of history behind her. Thanks for posting the article, you were re-assuring. I WILL come to your boards more often like you wish.
