I'll be the first to post here. lol So how many rounds or cases do you think really breaks in a marker? (Ex. I have a Ego 11 and around 8-10k thousands threw it.) I don't think she feels broken in at all. Do you think another 10,000 shots will make a huge difference? Also, on the chrono, she would jump in velocity a lot, a string ofshots were 279, 297, 276, 298, 277, 295. It was almost a +/- 20 jump in velocity every shot. Kind weird. Do you think it could be my air tank?

I'd say somewhere between 15 and 20K possibly more.. As for your velocity fluctuation it could just be bad paint or you need to match your paint to a proper bore size would be your best bet for increased accuracy and consistency.

Yeah a lot more to break in. How many shots do you have threw it? Also what are you solenoid settings at? Are they stock??

Okay. Thanks. I've been waiting for Planet Eclipse to release a Charge 2 shaft 4 boost kit. But they are really lagging it! I've already emailed them twice!

Hi my 2008 Ego Solenoid recently blew and I was told by some friends that this model/style of solenoid would fit my gun.

I know a ton of parts are universal throughout a lot of models of markers

The items that really need to break in are the valve and regulator springs. There really isnt any set amount of shots.

Velocity has alot to do with quality of ball, barrel match and weather then the break in period. If the air system is very inexpensive or you run a very low quality of air thru it, could be an issue.

There are alot of adjustments that can be made to increase the performance or the smoothness of a marker. If you want smoother on the 11, try increasing the dwell by one, lowering the dials slightly on your solenoid or turn your LPR in by 1/2 turn. This will affect your velocity so please be sure to do it over a chronograph.

Swap out three orings:
#16 on the inline reg piston
#11 on the inline regulator adjuster top
#8 inside the inline regulator adjuster top

You may also want to try flipping over the seal that is between the adjuster top and adjuster screw.

WHat kind of marker?
Have you tried disconnecting the solenoid and eye wires from the board and trying it? If a wire is pinched or frayed it could ground out the board.

Sometimes the gun will not start up if there is no hopper on the gun blocking light getting to the eyes. It is something to do with the programming on the newer boards.

Also, is there a plastic strip between the board and the gun frame? If not, the board button is not being depressed.
