I’ll try and join all my posts together once I am finished
So received my renegade tappetless gearbox today same day as @Cruise. Figured I would start the thread and he can join in.
The box itself has no brand markings but the packets with a gears,screws ect: are SD
is quite light and obviously cast there is a few parts that need to be cleaned with a dremmel it. Not super important as it is just the peep hole for the bevel gear. The cover for on of the bearings wasn’t set in properly but managed to get it in place with my nails and push it down tight.
Looks like the same cast material and has me wondering if it will stay in place properly when fully assembled. It is ported on the top side ending about where a regular cylinder would start also if the nozzle is screwed completely closed the holes for securing are at the top and bottom.
Was worried about that but realised I shouldn’t need to use them as there is nothing in the receivers that would do that.(obviously just copied the design from the a**soft equivalent)
There is also a grove on the outside about 2/3 from the back but isn’t actually visible from the inside. At first I thought it would in screw there as you need a little bit of force to push the piston out of the front as I couldn’t get it out the back.
Looking inside the cylinder assembly it has the guides to hold the piston in place which I was a little worried it wouldn’t actually have.
The way the tappetless nozzle works is the Oring in the center of the piston pulls the nozzle back and about half way through the travel it is released. The piston head also has a spring so it stretches away from the actual piston aswell. Looks like a standard polymer piston with the first and last teeth half size
Also can with all the bit and bobs to have a functional gearbox. Shotty cast gears and a pink safety latch and selector plate (cute?) the spring is a 1.2 unequal. DIDN’T COME WITH SHIMS! The T piece looks really short compared to most of the v2 style ones i have but that could just be me
I’ve been trying to decide which blaster I want to put it in and I’ve decided that it will replace the nylon box, going to swap the Leviathan v2 and shs gears out, but for all you guys that want to see it complete with what it came with I will be doing that first. I am very intrigued like the rest of you what the air seal, FPS and feeding will be like. Starting the assembly now
