But i dont have a problem with shooting my geo on the in door practices so that i can live with. Thankful for any help or tip i can get
FSDO = low battery, too low of a dwell, or you're tank output pressure is too low

It is not battery tried a few different brands, and yes duracell, dwell helps a bit, i run 14 now i think, but it is only slight the real problem is the breaking paint. And i run a ninja with no shims, and i tested it 450 psi so all good there.

Howdy folks, I recently just came across a brand new vapor. It's black with red accents and is quite a change from my 9 years of exclusive Matrix use.

I've tried searching both google and Pbn for answers to my following questions but can't seem to find them so...

I'm pretty sure my gun is a V1 but with better parts. It came with a gold bolt can equipped and a separately bagged red can. My eye covers are magnetic with the small slide release (awesome btw).

My manual doesn't seem to be of any assistance. I've essentially teched every gun made since 03' successfully so I was able to replace the trigger with the reach version (again awesome)! I'm looking forward to next weekend when I get to put the first bit of air through it.

On a side note, on upon receiving it I was considering immediately putting it up for trade with a mini for an LV1 but changed my mind after falling in love with this sexy body.

Glad to be here! Can someone please direct me as to where I could purchase spare parts of all types? (Solenoids, wire frames, micro switch)

Thanks guys!

Hey bud!

http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...7#post76268237

Within the tuning guide in my signature, there's a section dedicated to "Vapor Identification". Click the link above to find out for yourself.

As for hard parts, solenoids are SMCs, the same used in the DM6+ series of markers, the board is EGO9 shaped, so the Virtue EGO9 board fits in perfectly (so most of the parts are already in your local pro shop). But if you need anything specific, contact Jay@MachinePaintball.com and he'll help you out.

have you touched the feather touch screw? Adjusting that could help it stop breaking paint. promod will now give you full directions on that below

Anyone have any idea where I can get a case for the vapor? I have one coming in the next few days but I didn't realize it didn't have a case with it... I noticed the machine website is down

Spectrum for rec ball. Dye for speedball. I pretty much use the .685 barrel back and the gold can exclusively.

RPS Marballizer (green )

GI Sportz 3 or 4 star depending upon how it breaks.

Speaking of which, remember: you want paint to break ACROSS the seam, not along it. Additionally, paint should break when dropped from shoulder height, and it should NOT break from anything below waist height. If it breaks from a knee-height drop, what do you think is going to happen inside your hopper when you slide into your bunker?

Hey pbn!

I have a machine vapor v3 and only have an 800psi output tank until next weekend. Would it do any harm to the gun to use it for the day? Any suggestions?

Nope, it's not going to end well.

THE INSTANT you attempt to air up the marker with an 800 PSI tank, the solenoid will safety-vent to prevent it from damaging itself.

It's not that it's not good for the marker, it's that the marker WILL NOT FUNCTION if you use anything over 550 or 600 PSI.

Long story short, get a mid-pressure tank reg, or if you have a ninja reg, pull the red shims out.

Awesome, thanks for the quick reply man. Got ahold of my field and they can do a reg swap before playing tonight. Glad I got this straightened out before I tore up my vapor.

Any suggestions on output psi for my new reg? anywhere from 300-500 should operate the same, correct?

Any other suggestions for a new vapor owner?

Sweet, glad to hear we averted a crisis!

I personally like taking the red shims out of a ninja reg to run 440ish, but that's just me.

Keep your marker lubed (at the end of the day, it's still a spoolie so it's going to eat lube)....skim through the tuning guide in my sig, and let me know if you have any questions or want to know more about something.

Just for future reference, If you're wondering what the different versions are, read Part 5 of my tuning guide, link here:
