Just so people know, I have not forgotten about this thread, nor the test results I promised. My car broke down (yet again) and that is taking priority. I am able to buy a couple cases of paint at $25ea, so I should be able to afford a few tests after my car is taken care of.

I will need somebody to turn a few bolts and powertube tips on a lathe for me so I can test with orings. Anyone able to do it inexpensively in the unknown future?

Well, was finally able to run with it for a day.
No issues at all, as far as shootdown or anything like that with an x-valve.
Was finally getting 4k fills. I was easily able to shoot a full 3 pods and a hopper.
Most likely could have gone well into pod 4, but I didn't play a single game where I needed to.

And that was from 45/45 with a 4k fill.

I'm real glad to see this isn't dying. I've been playing paintball since '98, shooting 'Mags since '01. They've always been my passion. I remember seeing an RT in an APG issue and falling in love. I'd look around Action Village and piece together my dream 'Mag all the time.

I enjoy knowing people still care about them and have taken it into their own hands to make them better.

Alright here are my results. Chronoing in the 280 Range. 288...284...286

On a cold 4300 fill I was able to get 8 1/4 pods before I started getting any shootdown.

Overall I am impressed with the Insert.

Would you guys recommend using red loctite to keep the shot chamber from coming lose or would Blue loctite be just as good?

I use nothing, just get it snug.

Those numbers seem close to mine. I like shooting around 275 for normal play. I stopped shooting over 280 years ago due to better accuracy and it is not noticeable in its range.

what size tank and how many paintballs do your pods hold? 100, 140, 160??? were you using a lvl7 or lvl10???

sorry that all the hard work by Hill, Luke, and Steve couldnt be verified by some results from the people who bought the inserts!!!

Setup:
Luke customs insert
X Valve with level ten, gold spring, ult trigger.
Max velocity ~ 270.
Pod size 140.
Tank size 45/4500

Result

5 pods and a dye rotor off a hot ~ 4500 fill.

Could not chrono above 270, did not notice any shootdown. Did notice a different sound signature. Definitely louder.

Try a longer bolt spring if it wont crono fast enough.

Hill,
Can you update your first post as to who offers the services to mod the valves? I do not own any of the equipment to do this but want 2 valves done.
