that is not the case. i have had to adjust the trigger rod on more than one mag so that it would fire correctly. if the sear doesn't fully cycle the mag can experience a bunch of issues. its one of the first things i check when fixing a mag.

What I meant was that if the trigger forward position leaves the required credit card thick clearance and the rod doesn't completely disappear inside the frame then the sear should have a full range of movement and work as designed.

Ofcourse I haven't worked with anything else than AGD intelliframes and the stock cf frame, so my experience is limited.

You may have the early version reg piston. They were set too low to work properly with the level 10. Some were marginal and would work, some were too low and would vent before they could operate the level 10. I had one of the latter and had to replace it.

It could also just be worn out.

There is a thread somewher on AO on how to tear them apart and get them functional again.

did you put your largest carrier in yet? did it leak? which spring do you have in there? it would be helpful if you went back through the thread and answered all the questions people have asked.

thought i did answer all the questions...

@ dukie: i bet it is the old ones because it still had a spring for a space in the power tube. (i bought a spacer kit)

@ sQuidvision:
I used the 1.5 carrier. Its the largest i have. I bought it used and looks like i may have to get the larger ones.

When i used the spring thats just a bit larger then the stock one it did leak out the back but was not a constant leak but shot out the back like an automatic.

when i used the largest spring it has a dead trigger with no leak. Nothing happend

Step 1: Photos of everything. Rail, bolt, LX kit with the order of the parts you put in the tube, including the tip. Sear, valve, rail bushing, bumper, LX carrier + o-ring, backing washer, everything. EVERYTHING. If you want this fixed, you need to lay it all out on the table.

Step 2: Reassemble the entire thing as a functioning L7 gun. Take it out and chrono it and make sure you're shooting 290's. Not 100's, not 400's. 290's. This sets your baseline.

Step 3: Install the LX bolt per instructions. First run: no shims, use the weakest spring you have available (which I think is the L7 spring), smallest carrier that doesn't leak. Chrono.

Ordered a new style piston, working on getting more carriers.

Ill post up once new piston is in and see where that goes.
