Do what Ando suggests for now. It will help moisten the orings and get them moving properly. Quite often, mags just need to be properly tuned. You will need an X-valve tune-up/parts kit. If you have no extra bolt springs, get some of those too. They are needed to properly tune your level 10 and they do wear out as well.
If the valve is used, change all the orings so you know you are starting with fresh genuine AGD orings. If the valve is new, then the orings should be fine and may just need to be moistened with a light synthetic oil.
When you do get your parts kit, tune the level 10 carrier size:
- Remove all the shims from the powertube. You won't be needing them.
- install the largest carrier size that does not produce a leak with the white carrier oring you are using. Always use the same oing in each carrier that you install. Its the oring inner diameter that you are adjusting with the carrier sizes.
Tune the antichop:
- Install the middle red bolt spring. If you can only get the gold and silver springs, use a silver spring.
- starting with the velocity all the way off, turn up the velocity until the gun fires. Measure the velocity.
- Adjust the velocity about 20fps higher. This is your optimum velocity for anti-chop and consistent operation.
- If the velocity is too high for you, cut a coil off one end of the silver spring.
- install the cut end of the spring against the bolt
- go back to "Start here" and check your velocity again.
- once you get the velocity you want, the gun will be tuned for optimum antichop and consistent operation.
Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
