    Hathegkla's Kraken Merlin



    I just got all the parts together to send to Blizzard for anodizing. I was thinking of going with an ocean/water theme but I decided to go full free reign with this and let him come up with something nice.

    My parts list so far: PE hinge frame, AKA sidewinder HPR and SCM 3 LPR, Shocktech Bomb 2 3-way valve, PE pops asa, Inception ram and feedneck, Belsales beavertail, Dye Ul barrel wiht a generic freak compatible back. For internals I'll be using a Lightning bolt and a Morph valve with delrin hammer. I've never tried a morph valve so we'll see how that goes.

    I'll post updates after ano.



    It's timed and chronoed now. Shoots great, but I had to make a new trigger spring, the one that came with the PE frame was so weak it couldn't reset the 3way, it looked pretty beat up though. The trigger still a bit stiff so I'll likely cut it down a little later, other than that it's great and fast as hell. I managed to eyeball everything well enough to have it shoot 290-300 without adjusting velocity, ivg is about 1/3 of the way in so I think I have the springs done right. I'm using a stock morph valve spring and a medium hammer spring with a delrin hammer. I only fired off about 50 shots but can't tell much of a difference between a standard valve and a morph valve, at least by feel. I'll see how the efficiency is, input pressure is about 220psi.

    Love it. I think these bodies look better with a more subtle ano, that doesn't hide the milling.
