you sir, need a luxe or just use the reset to default setting.

Love those guns. Just too rich for my blood

No it was one here on the nation. Yes I sold it, but I love pristine olive guns, which this one is supposed to be.

Agreed. I have a sprung Eigenbolt Shocker anyway, so why downgrade to a Luxe?

Good looking out demo, but I meant the actual button on the board.

That's not really true, the fit and finish of markers a like an axe and that of an ego/luxe/crome or even a ten year old angel is very different.

Meh... I shoot an axe over a G6R or a clone right now. I actually got rid of both those guns for axes and I am perfectly content. It's by far the most gentle gun on paint I've ever seen with a lurker eigenbolt.

i got these long *** arms...luxe feels graet in my hands. I loved loved loved mine, but its not worth it for the 6 times (if lucky) that I will play this year. G5 does almost the same thing, for very cheap.

Just put a techt bolt in my G5, **** balls that makes a nice gun. Got one of the prototype bodies that still accepts G4 techt bolts

I'm not a fan of the pre-G5 DP guns, even with the tech t bolts. They're not terrible but are louder than I'd like.

a g4 with a techt is loud?

what are you, Jeremy Salem in the woods or something?

My G4 was really nice, not sure why I sold that thing. my past thresholds and revi were also really quiet. Im not sure if this makes sence scientifically, but it seems to me the longer the bolt on a spool valve gun, the quieter it is. long bolts like shocker, threshold, matrix, always seem quieter than short bolts like G4, geo, NT. Higher volume with lower pressure I'd guess.

The one exception is the macdev guns. short bolts, and ****ing silent. I think it has to do with how the air spins backwards in Australia.

Haha... IDK man, the tech t's didn't seem too much quieter to me. Axes have a short bolt, but with a lurker they are probably the quietest guns I've never heard.

Could it be because the axe uses a spring so the operating pressure is lower?

Perhaps. One of my axes runs at 160psi which isn't particularly low, my other one runs at 140psi and both are insanely quiet and have no kick.

One of mine has the boss xsv (160psi) and the other has a lurker (now a blurker) bolt.
