...tank threads are a standard size.... and SLP regs could potentially cause shootdown.

As for why it's not fitting, it could be because you're not threading it in correctly; the ASA is slightly angled, so the tank fits on a few degrees below 90

Yep, shootdown. the tank reg can't refill the HPR fast enough so you get low-velocity shots at higher rates of fire.


And that sounds really weird! I'd contact Ninja about that.

I used the tuning guide. I still can not get my vapor to shoot consistant . I have been getting readings like 272 280 291 288 261 294 those were my recordings at the chrono today. Any ideas why I keep getting terrible chrono shoots. It's not the chrono I used two different ones just in case . This is the only gun I have owned that I can't get it to produce good results.

What paint are you using?
What is the paint boring at?
What barrel bore are you using?
What is your dwell?
What tank reg are you using?
What lube are you using?

Vapor Chopping occasionally

As the title infers. My vapor breaks an occasional pellet or 2 every game. Thats like a pellet or 2 every 2 pods. My settings are dwell 11, eye delay 8, bolt return 33. I have tried both upping and lowering the eye delay and bolt return to no effect, also tried switching between standard and advanced eye modes, and also turning the feather touch in and out, still chops occasionally. Any other suggestions? Pellet to bore is near perfect.

Chops or breaks? Detents?

Looks to be like breaks. Sorry not chops. Detents seem ok. Detent movement isn't impaired.

I've been getting a lot of "OMG MY MARKER BREAKS PAINT" pm's recently.

~First of all, I want you to change your battery. Go out and buy a decent battery like the Lithium series Duracell or Energizers. Put it in your marker. I don't care what the board says, change your battery once in a while.

~Next, take your engine out. Take a microfiber and wipe off ALL of the lube. If the engine doesn't look bone-dry, you're doing it wrong. Look at how little lube I use on the vapor drivetrain as compared to the stock lube on the luxe:



~Re-lube your engine with a THIN coat of DOW33 or monkeypoo.

If you're still having issues, PM me.

Correct, good sir. There's no reason to overkill it, just make the orings look wet

Will try changing the battery, but it was a new paintball energy battery (forgot the brand but its the same kind that comes with eclipse markers). I lube the bolt similarly to the picture you posted.

Luxe is stock lube (33)

Outside of the Vapor engine (static orings) have DOW33 on them, the bolt and bolt guide have a thin coat of monkeypoo on them; Like I said, THIN is key.

Re-register it by email through machine's website with all your personal info. and your vapor's serial number. Andrew Spurlock will email back and say confirmed. Thats what he did for me.

When I registered mine it seemed to work but I did not get a confirmation email. Should I do it again?
