Settings for my custom Ion

Well I just got done building a custom Ion and I am looking for the best settings to use. Here is what is in the gun:
Mac33 Noid
Lucky Rear Bango
Eclipse QEV
Lucky 5.1 body
TechT L7 bolt kit
UTB (Universal T-board)
Hyper2 reg

Right now I have it running @ 9ms dwell and 110-120psi input
I don't have a chrono yet but I'm shooting close to 250-270fps I would guess

Any input would be appreciated.

The best settings? as in dwell?

  1. 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).
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

I'm just wondering what other people run as pressure and dwell settings. I'm use to using a shocker

Pressure you dont have to worry about. You change that when you chrono it, so that will always be a variable. Set your dwell properly though according to the sticky. That used to be my lucky body and I could get it to cycle at 5 ms dwell, but it would be completely inconsistent. I used a dwell of 12 on that body. And with an L7 bolt, that should run just fine for you as I am sure the finish on the bolt is better than the GCPB bolt that I used (you have that too).

Even if you can get it to fire with a dwell of under 12, I would not advise it because you would lose consistency, and thats just no fun. If playing in the cold as well, up your dwell a few clicks.

Don't hesitate to PM me if you have problems with it.

thanks for the help, just confusing when it runs at 110 psi but the dwell sticky says 150-180psi so I really need a pressure to set the dwell from

having the dwell above 9 or 10 ms the gun has a lot of kick w/ pressure @ 120psi
