    Level 10 "carriers that worked" list thread

    Thought it might be interesting to get a composite list to see if there is a trend on the carriers to bolt fits starting to develop. Besides Tom may actualy be able to use that to cut down on the carriers normally supplied and keep the kit costs down to us. Might be mutualy benificial. So lets see...

    NB: List the carriers you ended up using only the one (ones) that worked. Nothing else. Thats all we want here in this thread. Not even marker type here. Use the regular feed back thread for that.

    me? I was able to use the 1.5 and the 1.0 and they both worked. (I do need to double check I am reading them right but will correct if I am wrong please do the same)

    1.5 worked best for me. It will be interesting to see how much it varies after another batch of o-rings are produced.

    1.5 and I was surprised that anyone might be able to use the 3 and larger ones.

    I used the 2 (w/ longest spring). I can't imagine the need for a size above 3 either

    1.5 with middle spring. 2 is too loose, and thus leaks. 1 is a little tight, but still works if the AIR is jacked up all of the way, and a lighter spring is used.

    The rings around the carrier represent a value of 1 for each one that's on the carrier. The three divots drilled in the carrier represent a value of .5. So if you have three rings and divots, then you have a 3.5 carrier.

    If I assume correctly, you want the spacer that offers the minimal amount of resistance. By hand I've got the 2.0 in there now, no shims as I don't have a tank to check if the carrier is corret.

    Will update when I get tank.

    I thought that the little "divits" had to do with the black oring on the out side.

    I have a #2 carrier and the stock spring in my minimag
    but I havent shot it yet i will soon

    #2 with 2 shims and the longest spring, right now.
    That may change after tomorrow, b/c I've only shot about 200 test balls in the backyard. I plan on shooting at least 500 on Sun.

    Update on my carrier and shim usage. After several hundred dry fires, I noticed a light leak after firing the marker. After redoing the entire installation procedure, I have settled into the 1.5 carrier and a single shim. I must once again make the recomendation that the shims be made to the inner diameter of the power tube, as during the re-test I had two shims but had a constant leak, reoppened the lvl 10 and found another shim badly mangled (I have mangled a total of 3 shims since receiving the kit) I took out the bad shim and kept the remaining shim in to re-test and have had no problems since. I am still unwilling to stick any of my digits into the breach, the safety part of my brain screams NOOOOO! but I have had no chops or breaks out of the two cases of paint that I have put through the marker, one case being over eight months old opened! It is enough that several of my fellow AO testers have stuck their digits and tongues into the breech of their mags and fired, I believe in the product! My only fear is if I do it the lvl 10 would mysteriously malfunction! So for those who have braved the test, I salute you !

    1.5 carrier, 3 shims, longest spring. Stops on a dime.
    Gun type is in my sig.

    *EDIT* - Originally I got the kit up and running with 1.5 carrier. After firing about 500 rounds...it developed a small leak the first started ahppening when I help trigger. After a few more rounds it sounded like a cocker hiss..very faint. I changed the 1.5 carrier out for the 1.0 using the same o-ring that was broken in on the 1.5. Works fine. You will need to adjust it after break-in.

    *EDIT* - Also found it works with .5 and 0 carriers. With the 0 you have to oil it often.

    1.0 and 1.5, but 1.0 is a little tight and won't shoot sometimes (unless I use a shorter spring).

    I use a number 2 carrier. It's snug but works well. The 2.5 fits nicely but has a slight leak when gassed up.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

  29. #29
    I started with the 2 carrier and 2 shims had a very quiet leak so I dropped to the 1.5 and 2 shims. No leaks after a hundred or so shots and then I ran out of air. a 68/3k, a 68/45 and 2 scubas and not a single one of them have more than 500 psi in them.. grrr...


    *EDIT*
    Ok, I wound up having to drop to the smallest spring to get it working. so now it's a 1.5 with 2 shims and a small spring. I dropped amost 2 cases through it during a tournament on sunday and didnt chop a damn ball. my teammates were exceedingly pleased.

    emag + lvl 10 + HALO = bliss

    Im using 0 carrier, longest spring and 5 shims with the pressure jacked up, although i started with 1.5 and that works fine as well. Oil is a good thing for the tight fit but sometimes it will freeze and you have to degass and regass which is no problem if you have a proconnect.
