Early Luxe, feathertouch confusion

I picked up an early Luxe (sub 100 serial) and I'm confused by the manifold. I took off the grip frame and found a silver screw which means feathertouch, right? What confuses me is the lack of oring grooves between the manifold and solenoid, I have 3 where as the feathertouch manifold is supposed to have 5 (see the feathertouch addendum http://goggleson.com/media/2011/10/l...d-addendum.pdf

Could I have a non-FT manifold that someone installed a FT screw into (were they even threaded for this?)? Is this an early FT manifold? Beside the oring grooves, what is different between the FT and non-FT manifolds? I noticed that my gun has A LOT of trouble even cycling consistently when I put the screw in...

Could have been retrofitted with one. I have a low serial number as well and the owner before me had it sent in to dlx and had it installed. As far as which one it is I'm unsure. Never needed to check because it shoots so well.

Well, after some digging, I'm pretty sure I do not have the FT manifold... Looks like the original manifolds had this silver screw as well. I did find some old information regarding a different firing can with the FT manifolds, was the firing can changed as well?

only for a few luxes in which the can was problematic..to my understanding it was only a small batch that had the reported can's with issues...

Sorry to bump up this old thread but I have a similar question.

My manifold screw is short but when I look at this picture it shows that the screw is long, does this make any difference? Also my luxe is missing its feathertouch screw given my SN# is 75 would my screw be like my current manifold screw or longer like the one in this picture.




Tried searching around but seems like not many have run into this issue.



UPDATE: saw a pooty video where his screw looks like the one I have so I think the two silve screw above may actually be the screws that hold the part into the luxe rather than the actual screws they are selling.

I found this photo that says its feather touch screw so I figured I'd update my post in case anyone runs into my issue.
