HELP! My CPS 1-3-5 is screwed up

Post by uman » Sun May 02, 2004 7:05 pm

We have two cps 1-3-5s, one is mine and one belongs to my brother. He fell down while we were having a war and the nozzle banged against something. Now the stream has absolutely no continuity, it comes out as a spray and doesn't go nearly as far. The hole where the water comes out looks like it is bigger than 1x for some strange reason, (as we have never modded it in any way) but not enough to make this kind of difference. Will changing the nozzles help? If so how do I get the nozzles off? PLEASE SOMEONE HELP as although 1-3-5s suck it's the only CPS he has and he won't fight me if his is broken.

Umm, take a pictures and I can help more.

One of the screens on the inside may have fallen out, that is if the 1-3-5 has the screens. You'll have to open it up to fix it if it's that.

ok opened it up, what are these "screens" you are talking about?

how do I take the nozzle off w/o breaking it? I want to see if somethings wrong inside there. BTW the other four nozzles work fine.

thats weird. ive dropped my 1-3-5 on hard concrete plenty of times (accidental) and it was fine. it only broke when I purposely messed it up, and even then I wasnt actually broken. its a really solidly made gun.

theyre not that bad...if you drill the nozzle (ONLY A BIT, I learned that a huge 8x nozzle really sucks on it) and k-mod it, its great.

I guess you could try that or drill the nozzle. Drill the nozzle first and then try that.

That may be the only way to repair it. ;) It actually will decrease shot time, so technically it's making it better and worse, there is a tradeoff.

Umm, no this is only a result of the nozzle drilling.

Thanks for the help. My brother said he will just use the screwed up one in our big upcoming war...heh heh. Thanks anyway, if he gets too whiney about it I'll try to use this method.
