infamous tuning question

Ok so today at practice we used our sponsors paint and my axe was chopping like crazy so I was wondering if somebody knows a way to make the infamous bolt a little more gentle on brittle paint, 1 1/2 turns out at 140psi. Also when I first got the bolt it made my axe crazy quiet now sounds like more of a crack, only 4 cases threw the axe.

Long spring, dwell 10 (i think) and use the replacement o-ring on the back of the bolt

Not sure, I've never tried it myself. I'm just repeating what I've heard on here. There's a thread about the Infamous bolt on here, do a search for it.

When using the long spring Boss suggests 150psi, dwell at 10, and the larger oring on the back of the bolt. That setup puts are much friction and resistance on the bolt, slowing it down. I'd start at something like the medium spring with a dwell of 5 and adjust your regulator accordingly. Then work your way up to that setup.

Are you sure it just wasn't the paint? Was it fresh and stored properly? I've shot Redemption, Ultra Evil, and other stuff out of my Boss'd Mini using the short spring with no problems.

It was really bad brittle paint haha we would barely close the lids on ours pods and shatter a ball 95% of the time. And the set up didnt work it just barely puffs

At what pressure? Boss recommends a dwell 3.5 and 150 psi for the medium spring. Make sure the smaller oring is still on the bolt with the medium spring as well. However, if the paint is suppose to be that brittle you might really need the long spring.

Medium spring seems fine so far thanks man. Long spring wont work which according to many other players theres a issue with them. Thanks everybody

for winter I was told by Boss to use 8ms dwell, use the large Oring from the back of your stock bolt on the rear of your boss pro bolt. Short spring and I haven't broken any paint even summer fill redemption in 30 degree weather.

My worry is efficiency. Im getting 11 pods with the short spring and a slp, ive heard these springs vary in efficiency

A higher dwell + higher pressure will cut into your efficiency but you can always switch back when you aren't shooting that paint, or ask your sponsor for different paint.

There is usually a sweetspot that can be found between 1 and 1.5 turns out. You can try turning it all the way in at the chrono station. Slowly turn the backcap out, taking 3-4 shots between adjustments while checking the velocity. Eventually the velocity will stop going up and that's where you can leave your backcap. Sometimes it's less than 1.5 turns out which will save some air.

3.5 but I might just go back to 3 and make it a even softer shot

A higher dwell releases more air so you can lower your pressure a little. That might give you a softer shot, not the other way around. That's why I originally suggested a dwell of 5 with the medium spring. That is the sacrifice of a little efficiency. Use whatever works but keep that in mind if you're still braking paint.

well im using a slp so its pretty efficient already anyway. empire said using a slp with the small spring would kinda be over kill so its im almost leveling it out as if i had a regular reg with the medium spring, does that make sense haha. its at 285 +/- 3 it doesnt even feel like its shooting i might keep it this way

None of this makes sense. The SLP won't do anything to the smoothness of the gun, just the consistency and maybe you can shoot deeper into the tank.
