Tech tip - Cyborg 6

Anyone still using their C6's?

Tech tip - if your Cyborg 6 is struggling to reach field velocity with pressures within spec (200 HP/80 LP) and you've checked EVERYTHING else, check the ram backstop oring. You must pull the ram body guide pin out before the backstop can be pushed out. The factory-supplied oring looks to be a 008. I replaced it with a 009, which seems to fit great. That oring is in place to prevent air from leaking out the ram body during the forward ram stroke - if it does leak, the ram loses some forward energy.

Even when cranked up to 220/85 psi, I couldn't get past about 280 fps. After finally changing that oring, I'm shooting the same velocity at 190/75 psi. This is something I didn't consider until Bourke mentioned it so hopefully it can help others with the same issue.

On that note, what pressures are you guys seeing to hit x velocity?

I wonder if that was the cause of both of my cyborg 6 where ventin air to the back when firing.

On both I had to upped the LPR to 80psi and HPR on the 220psi

Wish I can find an affordable C6

How are you guys able to check your pressures if your transducers are out? Anyway to check with gauges?

Mine are not out either but update I'm at like 80lpr and 205 hpr at 290's which seems a tad high but it shoots super smooth for sure

Need a little help with your tip.
Exactly where is located the oring you are mentioning. I just looked the diagram but I cant tell which one is.

That oring is so secretive that they left it out of the diagram. Pull the guide pin out, remove C6BS, and change the oring to a fresh 009.

I think you're confusing 'poppet' with 'entire lower tube', which consists of the ram, valve body, cupseal and the cartridge that houses them. It's actually my favorite feature of the gun and isn't complicated at all.

Now that I have my transducers working on my Cyborg, I finally changed the oring in question. I'll test it out and see what pressures i'm runnig to reach velocity.
