Redux compromised

So I finally got out to break in the Redux. Went to crono it and had some crazy inconsistencies. It was shooting 140-240-280 not in that exact order but it jumped up and down. So I put it away for the next couple of games. Then I decide what the hell am I going to spend all this money on a awesome marker like this and not use it. So I ended up using it the rest of the day. I was using evil paint with a 687 insert. I chopped a couple balls but of course that was user error. I also had a couple balls break in the barrel. The last game I really went crazy with the dux. I ended up breaking so much paint in the gun It wouldn't cock any more lol. At the end of the day I break it down for a nice scrubbing and oil bath. Then I noticed that there were a few burrs in the barrel where it had been bored for the freaks perhaps this caused the balls to break in the barrel I don't know. Another thing I noticed was that the power tube wasn't threaded onto the cup seal unlike on my phantom could this be what was giving me the inconsistencies as far as velocity. I don't know if it just sits in there or is it supposed to be threaded on like the phantom. Mongo did I break it . Anyhow this is definitely a piece I will never sell in fact I am going to use it more often and get to know it. Here are a couple pics I borrowed courtesy of ALMOSTFAMOUSPAINTBALL.COM.

You also have to remember that the evil was crazy stupid. That could've played a key thing in your paint breaking. it's nice to see that in person, though. Really sexy gun.

yeah there probably was many factors but i still don't understand the inconsistencies maybe the weather but it was a really nice day so i don't think the 12ies had a role in that. then again i did chrono my phantom just to see and i had the same inconsistencies.

I replaced my cupseal as the same thing happened to me. I bet that wasn't helping your consistency.

also forgot to mention i lost a twelve gram seal too . so is the powertube supposed to be loose like that or does it screw into that brass piece attached to the cupseal?

i bet the cup seal is your velocity problem. it should be screwed tight on to the power tube. i noticed on my 'Dux that there is only a thread or two that actually reach the threads inside the actual cupseal. i plan on changing my cupseal with one that will have more thread contact.

no wonder it won't thread in at all. do i need to apply more pressure or need a longer threaded powertube?

Keep the powertube, find a new cupseal. The powertube is but down and bored out, so replacing it will be harder.

I think I used one of the plastic Lapco ones, but I'll pull it apart and check.
