    alrighty well...

    Ok now I got all the leaks to stop but when i pull the trigger even though the sear feels pressurized the it won't trip the bolt... and the velocity is almost as high as it can go.

    Gonna need some more information. Level 10 bolt or Level 7? What did you do to stop it from leaking down the barrel?

    What you're describing is tuning problems with a Level 10 bolt, and resultant bolt-stick. But without knowing the facts first, I can't diagnose.

    Thank you sire.

    Yes its a level X I only have about 1300 psi left though. I dont know how to read the shims. I added the part number 116 which was missing in the valve and how i stopped the leaking was i unscrewed the regulator nut out about 70% had, 3 shims and a bolt carrier i have no idea how to tell the difference in the markings.

    Shims are marked with dots and rings. Rings are full sizes, dots are half. So if you have a carrier with two rings and dot it is a 2.5. One ring no dots would be a 1.

    its worth making the trip to paintball charleston and having geoff take a look at it. he can have your mag tuned and ready to go pretty quick. if not see if you can mail it to him. they are more than willing to help mag owners out and the only store left in sc that i know of that carries mag parts/ mags. tell him you were struggling with the tuning and bring all your spares.

    I wasn't meaning to chastise you. That link I posted has a lot of good information in it, including how to read the carrier sizes. I have it bookmarked on my computer. Just sharing a resource is all.

    The info is good to review. I wouldn't install the shims though.

    You need to increase the velocity setting until the gun fires. Then check the velocity to see if it is in the correct range. You adjust the range using the different length bolt springs. If the valve starts venting out the back before you reach a velocity that works for you, then you need a newer high pressure regulator spring pack to replace the old low pressure ones.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.
