I picked up an Evolve 1.1'd Trix on BST last week, I can't wait to have another OG Trix in my bag!
My first high-end was a Evolved Trix, and aside from getting it working, and occasional board adjustments I never fiddled with it much. Those days are over. I keep hearing that I can get close to a case per fill out of that Evolve kit...
My current plan is to pick up a rebuild kit from O-ring Monkey for starters, and then do some custom/hand fitment of rings where applicable, as well as trying X-rings for some of the dynamic seals, such as on the bolt sail. My question is, when experimenting with ring sizing is it best to try for the smallest possible ring that will give a reliable seal, the largest, or is it dependent on which part of the marker I'm messing with?
I was also wondering about lube, I've been a Bob Long guy for a long time, so DOW55 has pretty much been the only lube I've needed to know. I used Slick Honey on my old Trix, but after reading through the PB Legion Matrix compendium feel like I might need to look at something with a bit thinner consistency, Monkey Poo perhaps? Something else?
I also thought it might be worth experimenting with DOW55 when fitting o-rings that are smaller in size, since 55 swells them slightly. Yes? No? Absolutely not because it will get everywhere and ruin everything?
Any help, or suggestions would be much appreciated!
