After shooting my LUXE and not quite getting the efficiency I would like, I looked into what it would take to modify the shot chamber. On any spool valve gun, reducing the shot chamber and raising the HPR pressure will usually give you a boost in efficiency. There have been other ways to do this but seeing how the bolt guide on the LUXE is hollow, I figured filling this void would produce a smaller chamber of air and increase efficiency. What I came up with is a precision milled rod that fits inside the bolt guide. All you do is unscrew your bolt guide, slip the Efficiency Rod into your bolt guide and reassemble your bolt. Its that simple. Once finished, just adjust your HPR to the desired fps (usually about 1 full turn) and watch your shots per tank increase. If there is any unwanted kick, adjust your manifold screw to remove it.
Ive had questions regarding the difference between the delrin and the CF. Other than material there is no performance differences.

Here is a pic of it in my LUXE bolt guide.
The white is Delrin and the black is Carbon Fiber.
