Snagged this Pro Stock from the BST the other day and immediately began throwing the E-Blade on it, I did check it for leaks before taking it apart though and it seemed solid. I'm also pleased with the way it looks. I thought the E-Blade anno would look crummy on the splash but I think it's purty. I did add the Planet Eclipse sticker, sue me.
I managed to get the E-Blade stuff all installed OK with the exception of snaking the solenoid wire through the frame (I'll do this when I'm ready to rock). My new grips should be here Monday.
My new eye came in the mail today and I'm starting to button up the project but I have a bunch of questions:
1. What size is the screw that holds the eye cover in?
2. The gun came with an AKA bolt, which surprised me. I'm not sure which it is but I'm having an issue where it doesn't slide out too easy. How do I check if it's swollen? The o-rings are just regular tank o-rings, right?
3. I adjusted the HPR output into the gun to about 280ish, is this correct?
I'll probably have a dozen questions, thanks in advance.

To my knowledge AKA only made the lightning bolt in various lengths in aluminum and delrin. Maybe a chrome/nickel version too. But I have a delrin one that is very snug. Its been that way since brand new.

If it's a pre-'99 length bolt, it's too long with that post-2K backblock. With the bolt and pin in place, pull the block all the way back and see if you can see any of the bolt through the feed neck.
And yes, the O-rings might be swollen a bit, at least if they're black rubber. Throw on some fresh tank 'rings and try a faint dab of lube.
As for the operating pressure, it very much depends on the gun's setup. Depending on which valve and springs it has, it could need anywhere from 180 (if it has a Tornado) to 300 or even 400. You'll likely need to 'sweet spot' it- instructions can be found with a search on MCB.
Basically, you start with a low pressure, and shoot it over a chrono. Keep shooting as you slowly crank the pressure up, and eventually you'll find a spot where the velocity starts to go back down as you increase the pressure. Find the point where the velocity is the highest, then fine-tune with the IVG from there.
The eye screw is a 4-40 countersunk, 1/4" long.

if you are building this as a loaner, get something not the blue e2 frame and solenoid cover. U can find beat up e1 frame with e1 covers for dirt cheap.
E2 Frame + blue E2 solenoid covers can get you a little bit of money.
