I've got what I think is a good amount of upgrades for my XE.
-trinity roller trigger
Just for future reference what other upgrades should I get? Or are even worth buying anyways?
I think I'll get a new regulator eventually but im confused with it. Does it matter if it's a low pressure or high pressure or..? Someone please explain that to me. But other then that maybe virtue eyes? Would they do much of a better performance? Idk in the future I'll probably do some more cosmetics with it but until then let me in with your ideas. Thanks in advance!
Oh yeah! Also I haven't really understood the whole dwell situation. How do you set it with the virtue board and what's the big deal about it? Does it really even matter?
Pressurize your Ion at whatever input pressure you wish to use. We suggest between 150-180 psi, depending on the internals. The following steps involve you dry-firing the marker (firing it without paint).
Lower the dwell setting to the minimum (or an extremely low setting, such as 5 blinks with the stock board, or 8 milliseconds with an aftermarket board).
Gradually increase dwell until the marker begins to fully cycle. When the marker has trouble cycling, the sound of the bolt firing will be muffled and sound erratic, denoting inconsistencies. When you reach the point where it fully cycles, the marker will make a loud POP for each shot you take, with minimal sound difference between the shots.
Once the Ion is fully cycling, increase the dwell another 4-6 blinks (2-3 milliseconds with aftermarket board), and that will be your dwell setting.
