Pink dust on the front boltguide oring with pooty bolt

Hello, while playing with reballs i have to clean the breach every 20 mins due to baby powder on the reballs.


While cleaning the bolt guide i noticed that the front oring (013?) had some pink dust on it while using the pooty bolt.

Is it possible that the oring is too small causing the bolt to scrape against the metal on the bolt guide or is this a normal issue?

When thinking about it, I sometimes heard a "metally" sound when shooting, but it went away by itself. It is not a lack of lube, could it be as a result of overlubing?


Also, is it normal that the marker wont run normal with a dwell lower than 13 and with BPS set on 10,3 it shoot 11 BPS?

If I remember correctly, Pooty made his bolts to tighter tolerances on the inside of the bolt to better fit the 013 orings on the bolt guide. Most likely, the inside of the bolt guide is nicking the inside of the bolt. This is normal for spoolies with a similar bolt design (read: shockers, luxes, etc.)

^^this. As long as it's not taking chunks out of the bolt, it's not a problem.

Well my original plan was to trade my way up to a 2.0, but while my g6r was up for trade some guy offered me his vapor for my g6r and 50$ I thought it was a joke but then after further talking to him he really wanted to actually trade and he sent his gun first I got it 2 days ago and I'm waiting to go use it. I put it up f/t the second I got it because I knew there worth a lot and I figured I could flip it for a 2.0 super easy. But after reading the reviews on it I don't know of I really want to trade it lol

Good score dude! Give it a go and see how you like it. If you need help with anything, check my tuning guide, or shoot me a PM. I know a lot of the Vapors floating around BST have been in the hands of nublets who don't follow directions well xD

Reviews have been good, customer service has picked up, Vipers are shooting them and kicking rear, Bryon Benini joined Machine, and now LaSoya is shooting a Vapor. Things are looking up



Shameless plug; the Vapor Vendetta is now on Facebook! Shoot me or Dabomber a message for more info.

Nope, losing a part isn't a manufacture defect so it doesn't constitute free parts. That's normal with just about any company.

People have been buying accent kits and parting them out if I remember correctly.

Hopefully we can keep the resale up and get a better rep, everyone in the luxe mob thinks they are pieces of ****...... Which I dont understand most of them haven't even shot one lol, on a side note just submitted my vapor for warranty, is that how I get the v3 parts and the "hopper"

I like the Luxe Mob guys, as I know quite a few of them from my travels, however, they do tend to be a little harsh on non-luxes; The vapor in particular. But really, what goes around, comes around. They got the same sort of treatment when the luxe first came out; people were slandering it, calling it a macro-less shocker, saying it would never last.... Look where DLX is now!


Personally, I've seen vapors go for $1300 on ebay, and $1800+ trade value. PbN kids don't have cash, so they'll settle for less than actual resale. I refer to it as GW syndrome (figure that abbreviation out yourself)

As soon as the hopper is released, there will be a rise in net value, and once people actually learn how to do basic maintenance, there will be less "OMG MY GAT DUN WOK!" posts.


**edit for last part:

Yes, I don't know exactly when the registration cut-off is, but I'm expecting a few "I didn't get a hopper because I didn't register my gun" rants eventually. People are intellectually lacking these days.
