IMO.........nothing special. I'd stick to a regular Classic in that case.

Main spring tuning
You are almost finished now. You have probably noticed that when you used the original main spring the bolt came forward with less force than usual but still had enough to chop a ball. The pin in the middle of the bolt is called the Power Piston, it acts like a cork to seal the air chamber. Just like a cork, it’s being pushed out by the air pressure but the sear holds it in. When you fire the marker, the bolt is getting pushed out by the air chamber pressure but the mainspring is pushing BACK against the bolt at the same time. The level 10 modification reduces the size of the “cork” so the main spring has an easier time holding it back. If you put a big enough main spring on the bolt and it will not fire at all!!

The last thing to do is find the right main spring that pushes back hard enough on the bolt but not so hard that the marker does not fire. The right main spring will depend on many things such as what velocity you are shooting, what barrel you are using, the size of your paint etc. Start with the longest mainspring (9) from the LVL10 kit, assemble the valve with it and gas the marker up. Try firing, if it doesn’t fire, turn up the velocity until it does. Turning up the velocity is normal for Level 10 tuning it does not mean anything is wrong. If the marker starts venting out the back or the velocity is too high when it does start firing then the main spring is too long.

Switch to the next shorter main spring. There are three mainsprings supplied in your kit. For the AO beta testers we have cut one coil off the longest main spring to make a “middle” spring. This spring looks funny on one end like it’s missing a coil (cause it is) put that end on the bolt first so the good end is sticking out. In our experience either the longest or the middle main springs make the Level 10 config work on all the markers we have tested. If you need to shoot 250 fps for indoor you need to go back to the original main spring.

I forget which colours are which length; someone here will likely chip in.

Momma always said I was a bit of an unrefined brute ;)

But it appears a rather knowledgeable unrefined brute.

Jaccen 11-13-2012 12:13 PM

Uh, no. I won't make any claim to be knowledgeable what with the company this forum shares. Those are just a bunch of links I saved when I had the same questions. I will, however, accept hyperlink bot :)

Hey wanted to say thanks for all the great info. Liked the part about tuning the level ten bolt

To be the one that chips in, spring colors are grey for the long, red for the middle and gold for the short/original.

Xvalves are the only valves that are aluminum though, correct?

Yes. Although the reg(back) half on RT valves is aluminum
