Efficiency help

What upgrades can I get to more efficiency out of my 2011 Proto Rail.

Better bore to paint match with the barrel. Perhaps a Tech-t bolt and dwell tune it. You could also get Pooty polished bolt which might let you lower the dwell a little.

How much are you getting out of it now and what size tank do you have?

Getting a bigger tank like a 68/45 will get you about another pod and a half ish.

That efficiency for that size tank is pretty much what it should be at and it isn't bad.

A tech-t bolt will allow you to drop the dwell and it lowers the pressure, so yes, it will make it a little more efficient and smoother. Not sure what the settings (dwell) are for the normal rail, but the reflex stock dwell is 18ms and the tech-t recommends starting at 14ms and going from there so yes it will allow you to reduce the dwell.

like every one says, techt bolt. you lower your dwell a decent amount and you lower your psi in the hyper3 reg too.

tested my buddy's Rail last weekend. he has it as a backup. first 2000 balls put through it.

consistency was actually pretty good. +- 5

field paint was .687 but i went with a smaller .684 insert. seemed to get better groupings.

no chops, no problems.

only thing was efficiency sucked. could only get 4 pods from 68/4500. actually had 1k of air but had to refill at that point. probably could have gotten 5 pods.

will put a few more cases through it to see if it improves.
