    Truss- thats normal for the lvl 10, it needs a higher pressure to operate so once it gets down below a certain point it doesn't shoot. i usually only get 600 - 700 shots on a 3000psi tank which is also normal for a mag or at least its normal for my mag.

    Quadster- try going up a carrier size. the longest spring is the softest on paint. you add shims to make it vent sooner.

    Level 10 Problem

    thanks for the info Jimmi9999.

    Im using #1 right now,fired about 100 shots too stopp the leaking. But the #1.5 is too big,medium leaking.
    Is there a maximum amount of shims too be added?
    I dont have any shims on it right now.
    Do you oil you gun every time you use it? how many drops of oil do you use?

    thanks in advance

    i am just wondering if there is a difference in tank sizes?what would be better to have?
    a 68cu at 45 or a 88 at 3000?

    Unhappy Is it realy that good?

    After months of repair at AGD and months of testing and
    tuning,i cant say that the Level 10 system can shot any type of paint whitout chops or barrel breaks.

    After last nights testing i had 70-80 ball brakes on 200 paintballs.
    Setup is #0,5 carrier,0-4 shims dossent matter how many,longest spring,chronoed at 280-290.
    Then i put my hand/finger what ever in front of the bolt and you nearly notice the bolt hit you.

    Paint that is used is Dracula. Works on any type of Angel,Cocker or Tippmann, but not on my X-Mag

    level 10 and powerfeed

    I just put in my new x-valve and level 10. I was using PMI premium paint as I have in the past. No problems for the first 4 games. After that, I began having trouble with the paint feeding into the barrel. I also would get some balls only shoot out about 10 feet (although the first shot).

    I am also afraid that sometimes the bolt may have returned without pushing the ball further into the barrel and firing (as if it was a stuck ball).

    Does the level 10 mod reduce the amount of air that used to be used to make the powerfeed work?

    While It was the first day I used it, I did shoot about 200 empty shots before using paintballs (with oil in the asa and using compressed air)

    I have the #1 carrier and 2 shims in. I did not chop any, and it does vent and return when I put my finger in and fire it.

    Any help/suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Okay, I'm running 1.5 Carrier, 2 shims, middle spring, and 850psi input on an RT Classic.

    There are no leaks at all down the barrel. There is no bolt stick. The bolt bounces correctly off my finger (a little rougher than I expected, but not bad.)

    I'm getting a few problems, however: my efficiency is terrible. I used to get around 800-900 shots off my 68/4500 before my LX, now I get 30-50 shots per 1000 psi (I havent emptied the tank yet, but its obviously poor.) Also, the trigger no longer pressurizes once I get below about 1000psi in the tank.

    I believe this may be part of the efficiency problem, but my gun vents lightly (as in, high-pitched whining) when its shooting relatively slow (I don't have a chrono, but I'd eyeball it around 260 or 270 feet per second.) If I unscrew the adjuster so that it stops leaking, it no longer cycles. If I screw it in further to up my velocity, it vents worse.

    So I guess my question is two fold: how do I up my velocity (which spring should I switch to?), and is my awfully bad ~450 shots off a 68/4500 tank normal efficiency for a Level 10 RT Classic?

    LVL 10 Question, what does Spring length correspond to?

    My basic question is this: What does each spring length accord to as far as resistance to the pressure behind the bolt? Is the shortest spring stronger, i.e. produces more resistance on the bolt? Or is it the case that the longer the spring is the less resistance?

    Many thanks...

    I have an Classic RT and am trying to install the LVL 10 bolt.

    The longest spring is the "hardest", the cut spring is the middle spring, and the regular automag length one is the softest.

    The hardest spring will be the softest on paint, but your gas efficiency will go down slightly.

    The spring pressure counteracts/resists the bolt until you dial up enough velocity (i.e. the air pressure behind the bolt becomes enough to collapse the spring). The only other resistance comes from the carrier O-ring. A tight o-ring will be softer on paint but you risk bolt stick.

    Top Secret add a shim.

    Quadster your problem is most likely having to do with the detent.

    Wickster sounds like more detent/nubbin issuses

    cky shane use the biggest carrier that doesnt leak. also install the mid spring.

    LX and trigger "feel"

    I am using an X-Valve, and a 1 line carrier, 1 shim, and everything feels pretty good. Few probs tho. Towards the end on my tuning, I was around 1200 psi bottle pressure. There is a small leak from the reg(back of valve). How should I fix this? The Setting feels awesome. I placed a ball 1/2 way in the breech and went nuts on the trigger, and the ball was just peachy.

    Also, the current setting makes the trigger return feel very weak, almost like a classic valve feel. Will uping the input pressure help this? LMK

    My "problem" is so bad, but sometimes (i had this problem about 3 times in 5 hours of paintball) the bolt will stick and not recock, well i have an adjustable geddon tank and it was set to 750-760psi input. Sometimes i could get it to recock but other times it would just make gassy noises (like the noise when it pinches) sometimes i was ripping on the gun and i might forget to turn on my revvy, so that could be the problem but also, to i have my revvy intellied to the frame so it would be fed properly but still have these issues. When i got home, i tried different carrier/shim settings, and the combo i used that day was the correct configuration. My gun runs N2 but i bought it used runing co2, so i dont have one of those new reg pistons made for N2, and the velocity was fine. Also, i got it to stick a couple times when i pinched a pen in the breach about 30-40 times, i would let up on the trigger, and pull again and it would recock (or push it back in with the pen), perfect. Now, my question is, why would it have problems on the field with pbs and not with a pen? My theory was that the 750psi input (i turned it up more when i did the pen test, go figure) was just barely good enough for average pinches but if several balls pinched (not having the revvy on and doing 5 shot bursts), it would not have anough pressure to recock. What do you think of them apples?

    thanks,
    -Alex
    p.s. sorry for the long post, i just didn't want to miss any details.

    automagger - turn your tank up to at least 800psi, 850 psi woudl be perfect. also, try going to the smallest spring.

    whats the carrier/shim setup? If i had to guess, i'd say drop down one carrier, but remember to keep the same o-ring you're using now!

    Not sure what's wrong

    Well, after installing the lvl 10 per the instructions, The bolt does not seem to be ..lets say gentle to anything...hehe. It still has the punching power of a regular bolt. I went down to the 1.5 carrier and 2 shims (as most people are suggesting) even though per the instructions, the 2.5 carrier was fitting it correctly. I'm at a loss. Even when just doing the 1st test with out the shims and orginal spring it was not giving way 1 bit with any of the carriers and still acting like a normal bolt. This is with the X-Valve, but I do not believe it is the valve...but I could be wrong. I went ahead and put it all the way together to see if I was just not realizing that that was what it was suppose to do, but still no luck.

    Any suggestions and or help would be greatly appreciative.

    my lvl ten is leaking/ but can't be heard. It takes about a day to lose 1k of pressure and i tried every insert to sotp it. could i take it to your factory so i can get it looked at? also can the factory check that my rt is o,. just to make sure none of my o-rings r leaking? I live in chicago on the north side so it should be fairly eaisy to get to you.

    I fixed it, next size up carrier and small spring, and it's good.

    Ok, here's the deal:

    My lx is funking out on me. I shoot a Classic RT w/ LX run it with a Crossfire tank preset for 850 psi output.

    I gas up and get a good 10-30 shots. I let it stick, and the bolt sticks. The trigger bounces back, but the gun doesn't cycle. I puch the bolt, it shoots some. I tried all possible combos of shims, and the best I got it down to was with 2, where I can shoot 10-30, then if it sits for more than 3 seconds, the bolt sticks, the next shot vents, and it shoots a few times, randomly venting every once and a while. I've turned the velocity up, and it does nothing. I have the shortest spring that came with the LX, because anything else won't let it fire. Any ideas?

    problems

    i just put my new mag together a couple of days ago, i'm now trying to fine tune the lx on the x valve that i have, but its not going so well. i'v got the #2 carrier in (2.5 leaks) and at the moment trying out the mediem spring. i can't get the velocity high enough for it to run reliably without the reg nut leaking. with the smallest spring it does fine, but the bolt doesn't return when i place my finger in front of it, and if i put anouther shim in (one is in already) it starts leaking, and with the one shim in and nothing leaking, when i fire air comes out of the reg nut this also happens when i just hold the trigger in but its just for a split second. any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Ok, when your bolt stops on a ball is it supposed to automatically reset or do you have to pull the trigger again before it stops leaking?

    Get back to me soon!
