If you feel like you are possibly not actuating the mechanical 3-way fully, you can try adjusting both the position of the valve and the trigger to start opening the valve slightly earlier to guarantee that you actuate it fully.

And while technically a spool valve, I have had very good luck lubricating it more like a poppet with a small amount of grease on the rear piston seals, and a few drops of synthetic oil in the ASA and dry firing with no barrel.
Ok ill try boosting the pressure as I have been using a . 682 insert and have not had it roll out of my phantom using the same paint (Valken Grafitti). that being said will I still get similar efficiency to what you had when using the original design? not that its supremely important I would just like the bragging rights of being in the ballpark of 3/4 to a full case of paint off a 68/4500.

The classics have been, still waiting on the XEs.

The efficiency is very similar to the original numbers, somewhat better than original because with the new powertube the air used to cycle the bolt forward is useful to the shot. 1800-2200 depending on velocity is not unrealistic.

RFQ is out for them, provided the prices aren't insane they should be here by the first of May.

Yoda, how does your dual o-ring bolt compare to the techt L6. Folks with enmeys are very interested in the bolts.

I don't have an L6 or access to one to test out.

There is a good chance we will not be getting any more of those specific bolts again though either as we are pursuing our own design (which will work in any mech, including the enmey).

I, on the other hand, have a secret hoard of ion bolts from differing manufactures and designs.. Including a like new Tech T L6.
