efficiency

Alright so im pretty nitpicky when it comes to my guns' performance, and I get 650 shots off a 45/45 on my ion with a firebolt and QEV at 140 psi input pressure. My dwell is at 8 clicks from the bottom.. anything I can do to get more shots?

ndz/clippard.. i guess ill lube up the firebolt but i dont think thats gonna help much.. and the dwell is only like 1 or 2 clicks above it not fully cycling. For the guy who gets 1000.. I think you should re check lol 1000 shots from a 45 45 from any gun is almost unheard of. When i tested how many shots I was dryfiring.

I think its because, as you said, you tested by dry firing....that way it takes way too much air.....with balls inside you should be getting around 800-900 i guess.

Dry firing an Ion kills you're efficiency and wastes air very quickly.

Confirmed

Dryfiring uses roughly 2 and 1/2 times as much air...But if you still don't see much of an improvement with paint, a Lucky Stage 2 will help because the firebolt only has 1 tail o-ring and the Lucky S2 has an o-ring in it to seal it off and help efficiency with 1 tail o-ring bolts.

Yeah thats what I was thinking ^ . Does the NDZ firing can have the seal too? It probably does cause theyre pretty much the exact same product. That would probably add like a 1/2 a pod in efficiency right?

..wtf?

anyway for bolts with one tail o-ring like the firebolt does the NDZ firing can act as a seal?
