If it continues, swapout the #10 and #15 internal orings.

Hey, this is just an easy question I'm hoping. I just bought an 06 ego. It didn't come with the metal case. Will any case work? Could I use an 05 06 07 or an 08 ego case? Just wanted to make sure the gun wil fit. Thanks! Kyle

I would suggest the following steps...
1) Try a new Energy, Duracell or Energizer battery. The gun needs a good amount of power to run the marker properly. A lessor brand of battery may read fully charged but doesn't have the upkeep to sustain the power needed to run the gun. This is the #1 cause of all issues in an EGO.
2) Replace the #11 rammer oring. Even if it looks good. It will be the largest black oring towards the rear of the rammer.
3) Set your dwell to 14.5 and LPR to stock flush.
4) QEV Diaphragm issue. Inside the QEV, between the blue and silver halves, is a rubber diaphragm. This part should be one piece. Make sure it is not ripped or cut (see page 63 in the manual). Also make sure that the person who changed it previous did not leave any of the diaphragm behind.

I have an 07 ego and I can't screw in my crossfire 45/45 into it all the way into the stock asa, and when I put a direct mount cp on/off it wobbles and the screws don't stay tight in it.

Does it have a Ti-rammer? If so, does it have the proper spring installed?

Eye issue could be the cause of the slow shooting or is the MAX ROF set low?

Accuracy is usually paint/barrel.

Innefficient try...
- New Energy, Duracell or Energizer battery. The gun needs a good amount of power to run the marker properly. A lessor brand of battery may read fully charged but doesn't have the upkeep to sustain the power needed to run the gun. This is the #1 cause of all issues in an EGO.
- Change #11 rammer oring. Even if it looks good. It will be the largest black oring towards the rear of the rammer.
- Set your dwell to factory (10.0). Be sure the gun is not set on training mode.
- Check the LPR. Make sure it is assembled and lubed properly. Silver spring should go into the cap first, followed by the piston and gold spring (See page 44/45 of the manual).
- Check the HPR. Make sure it is assembled, lubed. Make sure there are 16 shim springs properly assembled. Check the HPR Piston reg seat. Make sure it is there and not cracked (See page 42/43 of the manual). Output pressure should be 325-350.
- Check the rear QEV. Make sure it is not loose or cracked. Loctite if loose. Replace if cracked.
- Check the airline from the rear QEV to the manifold. Take the hose off the QEV and take the solenoid off the manifold. Blow thru the hose. It should flow freely.
- Check the Solenoid. Make sure there is no physical damage.

That is pretty much all the possible issues with a stock EGO.

The Crossfire is nickel plated. Sometimes the plating is to thick and this happens. Try another tank.

The Direct mount screws are to long. Try shorter ones.
