Better Air Efficiency

Im sure there is a post for this somewhere but Im deployed right now and it takes forever for things to load. Shame on me for being impatient. I ordered a 2.0 and had it sent tomy buddy. I had him do an efficiency test where he said it got 6.5 pods including hopper. I hear thats about normal for a factory model Luxe. Im not too familiar with them, its my first one. It has a Pooty bolt guide I believe (its a pooty something, not a power core), but other than that its stock. I want to know what can I put into it to get more shots off a tank. The weekend I get back from this S*** hole im playing and want the nicest gun money can buy since ill have it lol. Let me know what I should get. Tango Mike

The luxe should be getting more than that off of a full 68/45.. You should be looking at around 9 or so pods more or less with the stock 2.0 core

hmmmm it might need to be tuned better. Any thing to make it better still? I saw only a few things from New Designs but Ive always been skeptical of that company for really no reason lol

It wont help too much but make sure that the insert in the barrel is a good match to the paint. Also did you buy it brand new? If not reset the board and check for any light leaks.

This weekend i had a very slight leak and in games it dropped my efficiency by two pods and it was very very slight.

Try it with the stock 2.0 engine and see if that changes anything.

And last but not least make sure you arent shooting hot, again it would make a small difference but still a differnce.

6.5 pods plus hopper is the same as 9 pods give or take. So to me that sounds like he's right on the money...maybe a tad short. Once the gun breaks in and he tighens the bore I think he can improve it a tad more. For the most part, the luxe isn't the gun you want for efficiency period. It's still at the low end of the efficiency range in guns. People buy the luxe for smoothness and quiet operation.

depends on the hopper.... that's only 7.5 pods ona rotor and maybe 8 or so on a Spire.

I get 5 pods plus a hopper on a 4k fill with my 45/4500. 6 pods on a 68/4500 is terrible. Did he run stock settings? was the luxe previously owned?

A stock Luxe should get around 9 pods. Some get more, but a properly functioning Luxe should reliably get around 9 pods off a full fill on a 68/4500.

There are no good ways to increase the efficiency significantly without sacrificing smoothness, quietness and gentleness etc.

Exactly, so he's not that far off. A bit of break in.....some tuning, barrel matching and he'll be fine. He's only off by about a pod and a half by his count, which is probably not all that accurate. No reason to panic.

It was slightly used. Used a rotor when he shot it. It seems like it just needs some tweaking if at all. Like I said, Im a first time Luxe owner and I cant even use it for another 5 months. Oh well. Thanks for the help guys! Save me some mullah
