My lv1.1 isn't that air efficient

Everything is at factory setting. I use a 68 45 ninja. I'm using the heavy rammer.

I might get about 3 pods and a hopper.

I never removed the shims in my tank...would that help at all with air efficiency? I always thought the ego had in line regulator to help with that...but I'm kind of surprised how much air this thing is using ..

Well that is beyond insane bad efficiency unless your hopper is a caddy on your marker lol. Curious what would lead to this also

Even at its worst, your LV1.1 should be getting no fewer than ~1200 shots from your 68/4500. You're certain there's no leak and that your tank is full? That's terrible efficiency.

A well setup LV1.1 with an emphasis on efficiency can get 1800ish shots from a 68/4500 with the light ram.

Yeah, I've checked several times for leaks. The tank is definitely full. I've made sure settings were reset to factory. I think I'm going to just give pe a call and see what they say.

If you have a camera or maybe even a phone that records in true slowmo (240 fps or so) try recording the gun from different angles in slowmo. In the breach, from behind, watch the muzzle mist etc. Try looking for unusual things like the bolt staying forward for too long or air being blown out of the barrel long after the ball has left it.

Then tell the guys at eclipse about what you see on them when you contact them, upload and link the videos if there was something unusual for them to see.

Best of luck!

I would suggest trying out another tank to see if the problem is associated with your tank first, then move on to swapping out parts one at a time with another LV that doesn't have this issue.

Has it been an air hog since day 1?

If so, what are your settings ie dwell, sfr's, etc.

Try a brand new high quality 9V.

Try setting it using the tuning method in this video.



Have you inspected your rammer orings for damage and/or swapped and lubed rammer and bolt Orings?

Im having a similar problem with my LV1 brand new out of the box, im going to try to tune it from winter settings and see if that helps.

Try this:

Light ram
Dwell 15ms
Lpr 1.25 turns out
Adjust HPR for velocity

My LV1 (slight underbore with Lurker barrel) can shoot about 1800 shots @ 285 fps from a 77/4500 with those parts/settings.

Check your LPR is has been turned the right direction. When I first got my lv1 the previous owner had told me it had been tuned to factory settings. I got it out to play and it was SUPER loud and I'd go through a hopper and pod in a 68/45 fill. Turns out he had the LPR set in the opposite direction.
