Xvalve chocking

its weird.. i finally get my hand on a Xvalve.. telling myself it will be better than my old Classic, more quick to the point and everything.. but... nope..

Is it possible my ASA give it not enough air? it seems to take half a second-second to get pressurized between shots.. its like im searching for my sweet spot and it just shoot, then wait for release to repressurise... what i've done wrong? ( probably a lot, but hey, i know you friends on the Magpire could point me to the right solution with your infinite wisdom)


here some eye candy :P



its my version of the famed Minimag The valve is soon gonna turn black when i get Squidvision adress :P

Fittings, ASA and tank might be worth looking at.

Is that a Button Head Cap Screw in the back or the AGD Thumbscrew? Hard to tell from pics. I'd say make sure your Level 10 is properly tuned and try the gun with another ASA. Also make sure your tank is putting out sufficient pressure (800 psi output at least).

Don't wrench down on the screw. It's only finger tight. You might have it preloaded

Take it down to 7/8 and it should be close enough to rule the screw out. Good call on the rail bushing!
