Thread: Level 10 worth the Cost?

    Level 10 worth the Cost?

    So did a mech tournament the other day and my level 7 MiniMag was spitting paint everywhere. Will a level 10 bolt kit solve this problem, is it worth the price?

    first i would say make sure your shooting thicker shell paint and that it is not super tiny.
    If you are using a twistlock barrel make sure your paint is not rolling down the barrel.

    If you are planning to upgrade your valve with a level 10 and have not recently replaced your reg piston do that at the same time. The older ones have a lower pressure setting for the blow off which is around the operating pressure of the level 10.

    Ordered the Lv10 Bolt, A piston and a Docs barrel adaptor. Paint choice wasn't really an option. Event paint only at all the tournaments here.

    A properly setup L10 means that you will not chop paint at all.

    While knowing if your paint was breaking in the barrel because of roll outs, brittle paint, loader failures(the loader not keeping up with long strings) and the classic chop. A L10 will eliminate the chops, and will be gentler on paint, overall.

    As for tips, there are a couple of L10 setup guides, but start with the smallest carrier and go from there. Make sure you have air to test it, and after that, enjoy.

    Never start with the smallest carrier. If you do that you will get bolt stick. Start with the carrier that is snug on the bolt...not too tight. Largest carrier that doesnt leak using the same oring each time.

    Yes. I knew that but didn't communicate that. Thanks for the save.

    Thanks guys. I should get the new bolt kit tonight. Thank you all for the advice. I doubt very much I was outshooting my virtue loader, I am not that fast. I feel the breaks were due to the cold brittle paint and the harsh level 7 bolt. Even when I switched over to my autococker I still had a couple of brakes. Only so much can be done when paint is sitting out below freezing for hours.
