PostPosted: Mon Apr 02, 2007 8:41 pm    Post subject: Need better air efficiency

Ok well my gun has always been a gas hog and i can never get it to shoot very high unless i crank the poop out of the hpr and it starts making a weird noise and leaking aLOT out the gauge. I checked all the o-rings i can think of and have relubed the hpr , lpr and ram. Maybe there are some mods or somethign or any ideas what i could buy to get better air efficiency ...

PLEASE POST

IF this is a Bushmaster your talking about they are gas hogs! But you can get them to a responable spot fairly quickly.. when i had mine tuned right i was running a 130-140 psi HP... but my lp was at about 90 psi. I have since screw that up when my valve spring went bad.. but i'll get it back there eventually. Here's some helpful starter hints

1) VALVE!!!

2) If your gauge is leaking.. fix it.. some teflon tape woudl work wonders

3) lighten the valve spring..

gauges shouldn't leak at all... gauges do not and should not bleed off any air.. the noid will however leak air if too much pressure is present! FIX IT

Really? because the guage on my hpr had a very tiny pin hole right in the very center which looks like it was obviously made when the guage was created. But the guage doesnt even work so im not sure why i still have it hehe. maybe ill just like super glue the hole or something rofl

Mine as a hole 2.. but doesn't leak.. I don't beleive air even gets to that point of the gauge.. I believe gauges will work even without a cover on them.. That does allow moisture to escape!
