Horrible effiancy on alias?

So I have an alias iv been restoring from it's old abusive owner.

I now have it shooting and FINALLY holding air

I was chroning it and it was easily reaching 300+ fps with a +\- of ~4 which isn't bad. But it's doing this at 50psi on the lpr. It's stock ram and all settings. Only ups is a hybrid adj ram cap and a cp reg

now the second Problem you can say... Is it uses roughly 1k PER POD of 140 on my 45/45

I have the paint bored with my freak so it's not that... My only thought is the sad make shift poppet spring that the previous owner used...

Would that cause this bad of eff.? I'm ordering an eiganram so I'll have a new spring but anythoughts?

No leaks dwell is at 8 I raised the lpr to ~70-80 yielding the same.
I'm at my local feild (on my iPhone)

I also noticed the guage creeps if it's near 70-80. I'm just about to use another pod on the chrono I'll try to get the lpr a bit higher and see what happens

LPR doesnt need to go any higher then 80.

With a 45/45 your not going to get a whole lot anyway...

On my 68/45 I can get about 1500 shots off that fill. With a 45/45 your looking at maybe 800 shots off a fill...

It wont.

What you need to do is tear it back down to bare bones and rebuild correctly taking the proper steps. First thing people do wrong is slap on O-rings and then lube them on the exterior only. If you've done it this way, that's a start.

What you should do is remove all O-rings and then apply some DOW 55 (I prefer a mixture of 55 & 33) lube to the O-ring Grooves prior to installing O-rings and then, once installed, lube as normal. You ALWAYS have to keep in mind that O-rings ARE NOT perfectly round and they often do have minor imperfections. Imperfections that can be nullified by applying the lube in the grooves which forces the O-ring outward for a tighter, more secure seal.

You can follow my step-by-step instructions listed in the Alias or GEN4 Manuals.


As to your LPR pressure setting, 65-ish is a good general range but in order to achieve maximum efficiency you'll need to sweetspot both regs.


BTW, I get just over 1800 shots off a FULL 68/4500 fill on my Storm, BRADSHAW and GEN4. 1600 on my 2003 Dye Reflex.
