Excal Consistency

I purchased an excal not to long ago on here and sent it to jared to get it tuned-up. When talking to him, he told me it wasn't the most consistent marker and could probebly be fixed with an LPR and maybe some new noids since they are getting old. I replaced the LPR and put off getting the noids in hopes that would work. Well, I took it to the field today and when chronoing, I had a good +/- 15pfs if not a bit more. Although the paint didn't match the greatest with the barrel, but I didn't think it would give that +/- consistancy.

I want to make sure If I shell out $140 for new noids that its going to fix the problem. Since I had it sent off already and had it cleaned, I cant really think of anything else that would be making it so horrible with consistency

Do you think I should shell out the extra $140 for new noids, and if so, wheres the best place to get both the front and back noid?

If the boss-man said they were getting old, replace them. You can always hold onto the old ones in case you get in a pinch sometime and just NEED to play.

There was a guy on Ebay that was selling a lot of AKA goods. Maybe contact him about possibly parting out some noids.

Do you know if the two noids in the excal are the same, or are they different?

Where would be my best bet to get replacement noids? I called jared (DC) but i'm not sure if he's around because of his family situation and work. Would my second choice be akalmp, or is there somewhere else I should go?

your sizing your paint right? jack up the lpr alittle too.

i would do this raise the dwell 2 ms. turn the lpr up a quarter of a turn. underboor. and use better paint. if that doesnt work then rebuild the hpr or swap the hpr.

then if your still getting sub par results do the noids

I recplaced the core, but havn't had the chance to take it to the field to try it out. I was looking at my settings on my tadao for craps and giggles and noticed the dwell was at 17. Im thinking this was done because the marker was very inconsistent so dc raised it to help it out. After getting the new Mac noids and core, should i lower it back down to 10? higher dwell = better consistency but figured maybe its to high?

Just brainstorming

the way i do it it is i get my gun cycling. (honestly if you have a was 1.6 throw that in it will make this alot quicker).

then i get it to shoot around 220fps the lowest my handheld chrono reads or more. i make sure i have my smallest bore barrel. and i raise the dwell until a dwell increase doesnt yield an fps increase. i then add 2 to that dwell number for the setting. i then chrono through the hpr to get it to 280 fps.


if i cant get 280 fps i turn up the lpr alittle. but that is very rare.

if i get shootdown at say 15 balls per second i turn the lpr up because the bolt isnt closing fast enough to stop blowback most likely.

then once i do all the mechanical settings and dwell i set all of tadaos other settings (ball in place, bolt close time, eye delay ect).
