I love the ape board in mine. I would recommend the board and looking into the soggy trigger mod with one of the flasc roller bearing triggers. If he decideds to go with the rip clip, I recommend the rf chips for the hopper and marker

BT 4 PARTS

I'd grab one of these for it. I have one of his XSV bolts in my Mini and it has some real benefits that are worth the money. Even less kick, quieter, a little better on air, etc.

Hey, Stanchy,

Send him over or go yourself to this site if you want to see some of the best mods on any BT markers. Feel free to look around and spend all the time you can. You won't be disappointed. I know I haven't been.

Something is wrong. The reg should never have to be over 200psi, most run at 180. Dwell should be at 8ms with the stock bolt.

How far out was the backcap? It should only need to be about 1 turn out to get up to 300fps.

I'm guessing the poppet oring needs to be relubed or replaced. You might want to drop some oil in the asa and cucle the gun while you're at it.

The Mini and Axe have backcaps that control how far the poppit can open. It has the largest effect on velocity. Never adjust the velocity using the regulator, only use the backcap (unless you have a Boss bolt). Here is what I copied from the TM manual
Quote:
Adjusting Velocity
  • At the back of the TM-7 main body is the Bolt Guide Cap. The holes in the bolt guide cap serve as your velocity adjuster.
  • Confirm that the pressure on your TM-7 Bottom-line Regulator is at 200 PSI.
  • You can access the velocity adjuster thru the bottom of the shell, just in front of the battery door.
  • Then you can increase or decrease the velocity on your TM-7 by tightening or loosening the velocity adjustment screw, with a 7/64" inch Allen wrench.
  • To Increase Velocity- Unscrew or loosen the velocity adjustment screw by turning it toward the left side of the marker (counter clockwise). Rotate the velocity adjustment screw counter-clockwise in small increments, stopping between slight turns to test velocity, until desired velocity is achieved.
  • Do not back the adjuster out too far. Stop if you hear an air leak, and adjust back in a 1/4 turn. A paintball specific radar chronograph should be used to accurately measure your velocity.
  • To Decrease Velocity- tighten or screw-in the velocity adjustment screw by turning it toward the right side of the body (clockwise).
  • Rotate the velocity adjustment screw clockwise in small increments (1/4 turn or less), stopping between slight turns to test velocity, until desired velocity is achieved.
  • A paintball specific radar chronograph should be used to accurately measure your velocity.
