DM8 question

Alright I got a DM8 and first of all, it shoots great. However, I am just curious about something. I was resetting the gun to stock settings because I always do that when I get a new gun and when I turn the LPR out five complete turns like the manual says, it will leak from the solenoid. When I turn the LPR out three and a quarter turns (like most of you fine gentlemen suggest) it shoots great. Is it supposed to do that/did dye mess up their manual or do I have a hidden issue somewhere? Also, it is a little inconsistent (+/- 8) but it was supposedly just rebuilt and looks to be heavily lubed with sleek looking stuff. Just curious, I love it other than this thanks guys

a few of the manuals did get the 3 turn/5 turn thing messed up. Off the top of my head I don't recall which ones though. the leak you hear is just the over pressurization of the solenoid.
What you're doing to set the LPR is fine. in fact most of us who use matrix no longer even count turns. we just turn out the LPR until its cycling appropriately and add 1/4.
+/-8 isnt too bad with low grade paint. thats 282 to 298. with top line paint and a consistent underbore or big over bore (which ever your preference) you could see that tighten some. probably in to the 5 range. Inconsistency is a function of the gun some, but even more so when the paint you are using doesn't seal or not seal in the barrel the same way every time.

Alright awesome thanks for the info man, I figured nothing was wrong since it shoots so good. Also another question, what kind of dwell do most of you guys run? Im on 18 right now

The+/- 8 is going to be normal if you're using low grade paint, and isn't bore matched.. now if you matched the bore and got a higher grade/mid grade paint it will start to group differently like -/+ like 3-5 which is good.. if it's still inconsistent replace the two tail 011 should fix that up for you

as far as the LPR some guns will do that when it's putting to much pressure threw the noid

As stated above I recommend using setting as

21 dwell and 3.5ish turns on the LPR
