How's that Reloader B2 working out for you? I only used it once. Also, forgot to tell you that you can use the 6 double AA tray, for more speed if need to be.

Back on topic though,

I'm still on the fence of purchasing another mag, because they're gas hogs... Having this efficiency mod, would certainly sway my interest if we can get some legit numbers posted.

I still plan on doing a few decent tests. I just need cash for paint. Money is tight. I don't make much, and I'm saving for an engagement ring. So this isn't exactly a priority.

I plan on doing one full 68/4500 fill on a Classic valve with:
-Level 7 (foamy-less)
-Level 7 (with foamy)
-Level 10
-Level 7 (foamy-less) with bolt oring and powertube oring mod
-Level 7 (foamy) with bolt oring and powertube oring mod
-Level 10 with bolt oring and powertube oring mod.

*each test well be done with AND without devolumizer, so I can get a good idea of the percentage increase.

I also will be checking velocity every 20 shots and plan on graphing it, just for the hell of it.

Gun setup:
-Centerfeed, Classic length mainbody
-Classic valve
-RT on/off
-Shocktech aluminum regulator body
-Doc's barrel adapter with Freak kit
-Benchmark "4-Grip"
-Dye double finger trigger
-Shark gill sight rail with red-dot sight
-CP drop forward with CP on/off

Lol. Yeah, it should be an awesome test. I just need 12 cases of paint. That's a lot of money.

ya sure is i would do the most important tests first incase you decide you no longer want to continue. also i would reccomend a tourney lock. hill said his classic valve adjuster was backing out on him when he did his testing. also it would be great if you could film it aswell. just to shut people up more in the end.

Reloader is working great. And I am using the double A tray.

Wouldn't it be much cheaper to buy about $200 re-balls. And run the test with those?

Yeah, but they don't weigh the same, and the results wouldn't be as accurate.

I plan on it. I actually have a locking thumb adjuster. I let a dab of blue Loc-tite dry on it, so it didn't unscrew when I play. I had that issue before.

I don't think the weight difference should be enough of a difference.
I mean. If it does, then the advantages of the insert can't be that significant.

...still no results. I had faith in this upgrade Hill but the people for some reason just don't want it to happen. I just don't understand it....Such a simple request.

Thanks to those who said they are planning on giving some results. Hopefully one day we can see them.

I'm not keeping any as I purchased the 25 in order to get them out to the people whom wanted them in order to get Hill the feedback he wanted on his creation.

I'm hoping next week I'll be able to pick up some paint and do a Lvl 10 test. I need to retune to a heavier spring though.
