yeah its best to replace all the o-rings, add plenty of oil, dry fire the mag about 20 or so times then finish tuning it!? 5 ULT shims w/a SHP reg works great for my Mag...but results vary so start with one shim and add until your shoots the way you want it? more than 6 ULT shims can cause run away/full auto...not good! will ya post some pics and the results after tuning the ULT???

An SHP without shims should be 900-950 psi and should be plenty with a tuned ULT. New o-rings can be draggy. All else being ready for RT, you may play a few days with little reactivity, then one day it kicks in and starts going through all of your paint.

Use a light, full synthetic oil (like synthetic air tool oil or similar).

I have Eclipse oil (Dont like their guns but I like the bottle the oil comes in). I also have Gold cup. Im going to try and get some KC from Lowes if they have it.

I will post up pics on Sat or Sun when Im back form the field and if I remember to chage my camcorder I will post a shooting vid as well.

Im gonna try to find a RT On/Off and get that just in case and its good to have around. But for some reason when I went to set up an account on AO it keeps telling me my answer is wrong for the size of a paintball? (Fail). So I might just buy one from Tuna or AGD.

So, with the bigger carrier you get a leak, and with the smaller carrier you get bolt stick.

When I had that problem, I messed with it for months. My final solution was to throw out the carrier o-ring and start over with a fresh one. It made a huge difference and I was kicking myself for wasting all that time trying to make the first carrier o-ring work.
