my 08 ego is not very air efficient. i have replaced the qev diaphrams, orings, gone fully throught the gun and cleaned it, replaced the battery...it shoots good, but it sucks on air...i will go through like around 1000 psi on a hopper (spire) and a pod. any help?

Also, my left eye cover is stripped, the head is, not the threads..i cant get it out. how can i get it out, without damaging the anno or any internals?

If they are the springs I need to get spring return, how is it mounted?



Thanks!
Check the trigger carrier for location.

A Spire and a pod = 500 rounds which is actually roughly 2000 rounds on a 4500 fill.

You need to try and use an ez-out on the screw.

I have replaced lpr o rings except for the one on the piston, and I have replaced all of the rammer o rings.

I did notice that the hose coming from the regulator to the solenoid was pretty dirty(paint).

Do you have any idea what would be causing this leak? I really appreciate your help.
Swap out the 14x2 orings on the LPR body as well as the #13 on the piston and the #10inside the LPR body. Check the piston seal while you have it apart. See if its still intact.
I would also swap the #11 rammer oring.

Bill, when you say the piston seal do you mean the seat that sits on top of the piston? when I took off the lpr cap my reg seat fell out.I inspected it for any cracks and didn't find any thing wrong with it and put it back in.. Do I still need to replace the seat/piston because it fell out? thanks for the help bill.

If the seal is not in the shaft permanently then the piston will need to be replaced.

Try a new battery. If not you may need a new screen which are readily available for the 10.

I had a question answered a couple months ago about my Ego that was having problems, it would chrono around 290 +/- 10 fps. I would then play a couple of games and rechrono and it would be dropping down to as low as 250 and i could see/feel the drop off. Well I sold that Ego and bought a brand new one and it seems like it was fine for awhile now does the same thing but not as severe. Every thing is factory settings but both have the Dart Kit in them.

Drop off is typically a lack of proper lubrication, low quality battery or your air tank isn't supplying the gun sufficiently. Other then one of those three, you may need to do a complete oring overhaul but seeing is a new marker, that shouldn't be the issue.

Good morning,
I am requesting confirmation that I can eliminate the QEV valves on an 05 Ego and it will continue to shoot?
I am referencing the 07 switch using banjo bolt connectors. I am aware that it is currently 2 different thread sizes but that can be tapped out.
As long as it can reach the tournament restricted 12.5 bps then life is good.

06 ego

I just bought a 2006 ego with the maniac board, knowing it wasn't firing right. When i pull the trigger the gun wants to fire but the bolt is only moving less than a quarter on an inch.

Its the same but a QEV is only $30. You can drill the original out very easily! Just be cautious and patient!

Check the rear QEV. See if it is broken off from the rammer sleeve.
