Yes they are still in business (google is your friend, air gun design)

Replaced the spring. First thing I noticed was that the red spring is a good half inch longer than the other.

Second thing I noticed is that it now no longer fires, but there is that "aired up" feel on the trigger. i turned my valve pressure up till it leaked out the back with the trigger at rest, and held air with the trigger actuated.

now what? have yet to change shims, and don't have a carrier set (working on it...)

because it was semi-working (albeit poorly) before.... an now I wouldn't consider it tuned.

If I need a carrier set I'll get one, but I'm trying to figure out why it doesn't fire right now. as far as I know, the wrong size carrier will cause a leak down the front, not from the back of the valve

I feel like it's the new spring. it's just so much longer than the old one. I think it's a combination of bolt stick and shims more than anything

The RT stock came with a 800psi reg, the level 10 requires the new standard regulator that has a higher PSI output. I think its 850 or so. That and the fact you are trying to use the longer red spring which also puts more resistance on the bolt means that you have to turn the pressure way up. When you did turn it up the pressure safety feature on your current reg allows the air to vent out the back.

You could try a new gold spring which will require slightly less pressure and you may get away with keeping your current reg. Otherwise it sounds like you need to get a new reg from AGD. I had the same problem when I upgraded to level 10 on my RT.

hrmm... by reg you mean the inline, not my tank? I can turn my tank up to 1100....

Is there a specific part that does this? or by new reg do you mean like an x-valve...

The reg is part of your valve, they call it a Reg. nut in the exploded view of this X valve, it is part number 25. I am only showing you the exploded view of an X valve because I cant find one for a RT classic. To the best of my knowledge they are the same but maybe someone can confirm that for us.

Heres the picture.

And a parabolic feed plug if you don't have one already. It is essential.
