Lv1 random fps drop

So I've been using my lv1 for about 6 weeks now and it does the strangest thing. Beginning of the day I chrono my gun and set it for 280-290 and than go play a few games and I'll notice it won't be shooting as far. I go back to the chrono and the guns fps drops to 250.

This happens like every practice.
If somebody can help that be cool

I concur!

You need an 012 NBR 90 o-ring on your LPR Piston.

Please contact your local Eclipse Service Centre to request one via: http://www.planeteclipse.com/site/service_centres

It, almost, goes without saying that you should ensure that your LV1 is registered for warranty via: https://warranty.planeteclipse.com/site/signin, prior to contacting them

Kindest regards,

Nicky T

Nicky T,

Is it just the one o-ring on the LPR piston that needs to be changed? There's a post in the thread I linked to that said the 008/70 o-ring on the LPR body should be changed as well. I ordered a package of 012 Buna-N 90 o-rings last week to fix this and I'd like to know how many need to be replaced.


Quote:
....in a german forum by a PE Tech:

"...tauscht den 013/70 O-Ring auf dem LPR Piston gegen einen 012/90 O-Ring (nehmt dazu original Planet Eclipse O-Ringe) und erneuert gleichzeitig auch den 008/70 O-Ring im LPR Body.
Fettet die neuen O-Ringe leicht ein und baut alles wieder zusammen. Fertig "

translation:

" ...change the 013/70 O-Ring on the LPR piston to a 012/90 O-Ring ( use on PE original ) and replace the 008/70 in the LPR body...."

that did the trick for me....no more drop offs..!

replace the original 013 NBR 70 o-ring on the LPR piston for a harder 012 NBR 90 0-ring. This o-ring suffers from less deformation, creep and extrusion and hence reduces the possibility of increased stiction and slower reaction times.
Whilst undertaking work to replace the 13 NBR 70 with the new 12 NBR 90 o-ring we strongly suggest that you take the opportunity of the LPR being out of the marker to also replace the 008 NBR 70 o-ring inside the LPR Body with a new 008 NBR 70. Make sure that both of the new o-rings are well greased with Eclipse Grease before re-assembling the LPR

I changed the outer O ring fine, but didn't figure out how to change the internal one.
Didn't fancy digging around in there with a dental pick.
