ok so i got me a vapor , played with it all day and it gave me no problem , but then o got home and i decided to kill the last bag of paint i had but then i notice the gun was leaking between the body and the trigger frame (right where the vapor logo is ) and it vent out throu the vent hole ( at first i thought it was leaking throu the vent but the leak sounds louder right by the vapor logo) i will be checking the two Orings that are by the solenoid and i want to clean the solenoid and relub it but dont know what grease to use. Any more ideas?

First off, don't disassemble the solenoid, there's no reason to do that.

Your leak is most likely coming from the two transfer orings that sit between the body and the frame. Make sure they're still there, and make sure you're not pinching an eye-wire.

They should. It's a 1x3 oring, and it's common on most markers with gas-through-grip.

Ok replaced the O rings( 2 1x3, 2 013 , 1 016) as suggested by you on your guide And the leak stop only on the trigger side but still leaking ( small) trough the vent hole is that normal or is something I didn't notice at first or is there any other O ring I need to replace?

You might have a nick on one of the solenoid orings. I'd contact Machine and ask them to take a look at it. They're really good about settings things right.

showed up on chrono(virtue) at 12.6?

ended up costing me a match

The clocks occasionally read hot, hence why I always set my markers to 12.2 or 14.5 (for 12.5 and 15, respectively)

I noticed when firing a lane a few balls would drop off randomly after 25-30 ft. Fresh out of the box. Any idea what that is?
thanks

Are you saying you're getting drop off when laning?

If so, are you using an SLP reg? What's your tank pressure output?
What lube are you using?
How much lube are you using?
Put in a new 9volt.

Yes when firing a stream of paint

Not using an SLP, just a pro reg, outputing at 550.

Lube is from factory

Since its from factory, a lot

Ya brand new battery.

Cpl instances of FSDO as well.

thanks

Stop over lubing your marker, its not a Luxe. A small amount to just make it wet will do the job with the Vapor. Also run through the ProMod's tuning guide, this will help with most issues straight out of the box.

ya I hear ya but I didnt over lube anything. It came out of the box that way and I wanted to ask around about the problem even though it sounded like a simple lube problem. thanks for the input though.

...On the WHOLE Vapor tuning guide? Damn, that's a big request. I'll work on a full-strip and clean video, but with borderlands 2 being released in less than 24 hours, I'm not setting a timeline


*edit*

Maybe if everyone starts posting in semi-coherent english I might consider it. OMG RAGING N00B SPK WIL NAUT B CONSEEDERD. Seriously, English please.

Does anyone know where I can buy another power cable that connects the 9 volt battery to the ape board. The black wire broke so I need a new connector

'sall good.

Head to radioshack with the broken adapter and you can get a new one. Or you could just contact Machine and they might send you a new one.

I personally just soldered mine straight to the board so there's fewer connectors...but then again, I'm a techie anyway

Hi ProMod. I just got my vapor yesterday. but i have a problem. i emailed machine paintball but im still waiting for a reply. the problem i have is when i put my air tank on the gun (output pressure is 520psi when the tank is filled to 4500psi) the gun will fire perfectly until the tanks air pressure gets to around 1800 - 2000psi where it starts to drop shots especially what running the gun on ramping or just firing fast. i tried using a "normal" high pressure regulator tank on the gun and it fired fine. like i guess it should have shot with the low pressure tank. dont know if you may know waht the issure is or if i should wait for Machine to reply to my email.
