    WTB: Gus telescopic or GP Paps

    Looking to buy a Gus Telescopic, or perhaps a Paps.

    Also potentially keen on similar mods

    Also would be tempted by a GLV mini or super mini

    I've got a paps v2.1 and as much as I love how it looks, the switch is a piece of crap. The reason why it sucks is because the brass button piece that you push in is held in place by a tiny little nut on the inside of the mechanism. Naturally when you press the switch and this nut pushes up against the battery, sometimes it will spin in place, effectively loosening the nut. After a while the switch will get sloppy and the throw gets longer, and then all of a sudden it will just fall out. The spring for the switch is on the outside, so when the brass button falls out the spring comes out too. I no longer have a spring so therefore the mod is unusable until I replace it.

    Either way I had to pull it apart and tighten the nut several times a day which is an ultimate pain in the butt. Hope this helps your decision.

    Love the Gus 22 in the 18350, no issue to speak of so far, just waiting for the Speroid to turn up from Vapour Art

    I don't really want to have to use thread locker on it. In my mind it is a design flaw and for such an expensive steel tube I would expect it to just work.

    The first GP PAPS V2.1 had a right handed threading in the holding nut, then it became left handed and the button's base became calibrated.

    When you first tighten the holding nut, no matter of what threading it has, there is a simple way to keep it tight and not loosen during the use.

    Hold the switch in your hand and press the button with your thumb to keep it steady, screw and then tighten the holding nut 1-2 times suddenly to make it grab the button's axis.
    All the metallic threads have to be treated that way, for a tight screwing or unscrewing this is the way. The use of a little force to the last thread always helps.

    There's no need to use thread locker, neither it is a design flaw and it just works. If yours doesn't for any reason beyond what I suggested above, don't hesitate to send an email to info(at)vapourart.com and we shall solve any issue definitely

    Cheers Perseas, I'll definitely send you an email!

    I did try tightening the nut as far as it would go, but the problem I had then was that the nut was a mm or so below the pin, hence it didn't make a good enough connection with the battery so I was getting a weak vape.
