    Retro Valve not rapid firing?

    Hello,

    I recently upgraded my old Minimag to a Retro Valve, and was hoping to get a little more action from it than I'm getting. It definitely fires faster but I was hopping to get it to rapid fire. I bought a Ninja SHP regulator that is putting out 1100-1200psi and adjusted the sear so thats it sits just behind the trigger. The On/Off is the standard RT not the ULT, is that what's needed? What else do I need to do? Here's my Mag...

    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin

    Pull your trigger slowly until you find the sweet spot where the mag will go nuts RTing.

    Done....

    I've done that and it just wont bounce. I have also noticed it half stroking from times, and I thought the upgraded pressure would make that impossible.

    Apply pressure at the top of the triigger not at the bottom.

    I've felt up the trigger more than a drunken prom date, and she ain't firing. Would an old O ring in the on/off cause it not to rapid fire.

    Have you checked your velocity? A lower front chamber pressure (lower velocity) will help with reactivity. Are you using a level 10 bolt. If you are, then a shorter, lighter bolt spring will help make it more reactive. Also, try putting a shim or two in between the on-off halves. It will push the top oring up a bit higher which will reduce the distance the sear needs to travel to close off the air supply and release the bolt.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
