I shoot a pod per 900psi using a 45/45 and I've lubed with Slick Honey and done the tape mod and I've been shooting it for a while, I don't think it's going to get any better.

yeah but you have a 45/45. he most likely has a 68/45, but I could be wrong.

run it stock for a little while, for like 5-7 cases before you make any adjustments to your regs.

god ppl, there is an efficiency thread started like every other day.

I have orange bolt, 530 and tophat, and I also did a test on my efficiency. I even typed up a thread about it if you search for it. I can get around 1350 shots on a 68/4500 fill. Thats not bad in my book.

Wrap 5-7 loops of electrical tape around the top hat, this is the top hat mod. It will increase kick, but you won't notice it alot.

so the top hat mod increases kick? so the hybrid bolt guide(which comes with the top hat mod) increases kick as well?

Yes, the Hybrid will give you more kick but not as much as doing the mod because they do the 530 mod(check stickies ultimate efficiency thread) also with the Hybrid which eliminates most of the kick gained so it is the same as normal.

so basically, overall, the hybrid bolt guide keeps you kick same as before, but makes your gun more effcient. correct? sorry for asking alot of questions lately, im getting a minion (evil fan boy) and want to know as much as i can.

Exactly. Or you could just buy a Lucky Uni1 Bolt, and get the best of both worlds, more efficiency, and less kick than before.

I havent found the tophat to increase kick any. I did the 530 mod and the tophat w/ clear tubing for a cleaner look and a longer lasting mod. It doesnt kick more than it did w/o the tophat mod. The 530 IMO empties the dump chamber quicker, so the tophat removes that extra air that is just venting out when the bolt is forward. I have only noticed about a 10fps difference between the setup w/ and w/o the tophat mod in. It hasnt increased kick or sound or pressure all that much. I just barely had to turn my pressure up.
