Obviously not the problem you were having but I was having low velocity issues earlier this month and after disassembling my redux's internals I found that my brass TPC's shaft had snapped after the threads. The brass TPC had a larger ID than the stock stainless TPC (unless I drilled it out a while back and don't remember).

With the the broken tpc anti kink adapter and a short tube (I'm using a short carter tube) I was loosing gas down the sides and 50 -70 fps per shot.

I have since drilled out another stainless tpc so it fits the Carter tubes (since they have a larger OD and won't fit in a stock CCI tpc) but this was the first time I'd heard about the brass TPC snapping off.

Were brass TPCs stock from CCI or from Mongo?

brass tpc's were made by mongo . What size reamer did you use for the stainless tpc .

I just drilled it out with some random drill bits I had around. Nothing special.

Man I used to have this problem with my original SI back in the day. Unfortunatly I'm getting old and don't quite remember what caused it other than a broken PT.
