rt classic valve w/ lvl 10 vs x valve? same other than weight?

I can't seem to get a definitive answer on this one. Are they the exact same internally and differ only by a steel vs billet aluminum shell? I've heard the x valve can fire and recharge faster because of "lighten components" on the inside. Any truth to this?

I picked up a automag rt classic and love the look of the rail and the nice extra ports. I took it apart and noticed the air passageways in the rail to the valve are really small, any benefit in drilling that out?

well both valves function the same, but the RT Classic valve can only be used with the RT classic and the X-valve can be used on any mag except the RT Classic or the Sydarm.

hope that helps?

So their would be no functional difference between an automag rt classic with a lvl 10 bolt vs an automag pro with an x valve swapped in? Other then weight and additional upgrade availability?

I'm also curious about this. Will an RT classic accept a lvl X without modification?

No real performance difference. However as stated you cannot use anything but an RT Classic valve in an RT Classic. X Valves will not fit.

It is only the RT's unique parts (valve, body, rail, frame) that keep it from being more popular.

the classic Rt's were inherently more "reactive" I seemed to have little issue getting the lvlX setup on the classic RT as opposed to any of my x-valves (5+)

the classic Rt seemed faster between short multiple shots, both valves sweetspot easy enough with SHP

no need to mess with the small airways, the mag is built on low volume high pressure, most other guns are high volume low pressure

you will not see a benefit with larger airways

You might see some difference with the alignment of the holes in the banjo bolt. It helps to mark the banjo bolt anyway, to make sure it doesn't move when playing. Mark it with nail polish or paint, in line with the holes. When you install it, you'll be able to see if the holes line up with the rail holes.

Good tip, definitely will do that!
