I've tried every spring i've got and none seem to make a difference. somtimes the trigger will fully pressurize and i can shoot it once or twice and then it goes limp again (like in the video).

That sometimes works but if it doesn't, replacing the piston is your only option.
I'm the one that posted the thread/video so if you have any questions let me know. Best if you post your questions on the BE forums so all questions will be in one location. Takes 2 seconds to register so
As stated on the BE forums it's best to replace the piston itself but this will get your marker rolling till the new one comes in.
I haven't tried it with the old bolt yet. cant remember how to uninstall the LVL 10, lol. Ill take a look at that link in a few. sounds like I may need a new reg piston.
It was'nt working with my HPA tank even when it was at 1200psi. I noticed the output pressure on the tank is only 800 psi, is 800 enough to run a mag? i thought i read somewhere on here that it had to be 850-1000.
Thanks for the responses. mega appreciated.
