Just a FYI,

I adjusted my SFRs changed the lpr,hpr to bring fps up and now it shoots like ****. Sounds like its starving sometimes and kicks a lot

Don't mess with them unless you know what you're doing :/

Both correct, but as always beware of going too low on either as you will run the risk of inconsistency and/or a drop in veloicty.

I seriously doubt that i could give you an LV1 and you would be able to tell me what the SFR's were set at purely from the smoothness of shot. Set your marker to suit what YOU like. There will be no noticeable change in efficiency going from an SFR setting of 5 to 7.

Go back to stock and then follow the tuning guide

Cant seem to tune my gun at all. If I deviate at all from the stock settings i get a drop in velocity or crazy inconsistency.

I cleaned the whole marker, ninja tank at 550 and using good paint.

Any suggestions?

Hey Nicky T, my marker is tuned pretty good with +/- 6 on chrono. My question is to get the LV1 up to 20-25 bps do I have to drop the dwell more? My average is 16bps with a peek of 19bps. Thanks for any help.

Are you using the lighter rammer? and are you SFR's turned up for rate of fire?

My question for you is, why do you want that high of an rof? The most you should ever need is 15 bps. If you want a high rof, the lv1 is not for you. You would want an older ego (pre 11) or something diff. The new lv1 isn't designed to be a machine gun anymore. The shot quality was the key concern in this design and bc the bolt has slowed down so much, just like the 11, those higher rofs are not possible anymore.

Edit- but if you want highest rof possible, you would need to jack up both sfrs, run a higher lpr and possibly drop dwell passed sweet spot and compensate with a high hpr. Almost like a devolumizer for higher rofs.I would also assume the lightweight rammer to help.

But if you do this all, you will be putting excessive wear on the gun internally and defeat the whole purpose of the lv1 and its shot quality.

Well the answer to that would be I play almost all senerio games and the roll that I play sometimes call for the high rate of speed. So I was wanting to see if the LV1 is able to hit those speeds, that's all.

But my question to you would be this:

Why does the ROF cap go as high as 30bps? If the maker can not handle those speeds why not have a lower cap like the GEO has at 22.

Idk, I didn't program the board but I can guarantee it wont achieve anywhere near 30 bps average. Loaders wouldn't be able to keep up anyway.

Ok, are you a PE tech? All I would like to know is if you can up the speeds.

On a side note my rotor and pinokio keeps up with my 08 ego at 28bps so there are few loaders that keep up.

I'm not trying to argue with you. No I am not a certified p.e gun tech but I did reccomend what I believe will give you the maximum rof.

As for the hoppers, I was saying an avg or actual 30 bps, not just peak. Although 28 bps peak ks still quite high. The lv1 shouldn't be able to obtain those sorts of rof.

I wasn't try to argue either. It's hard to talk with just words on a page cause it can be misinterpreted as something else. I was hoping that you were a tech and could find out from PE if is possible or to find out what the true cap is for the LV1.

The tolerances are so tight that the 1/8 turns send the marker out of balance real quick. Even if the LV1's all had the same dwell and solenoid adjustment settings, I'm sure some would be plus or minus some percentage on the LPR and HPR simply because the tolerances are so tight. Love it though... Once your have it set, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I recently tuned my lv1
Dwell 15.0
Lpr stock
Solenoid: one closest to trigger (7), and one other one (1).
It shoots SOOOO smooth that I forgot it was a dang ego. Will the efficiency be terrible? Will I be getting 6-7 pods on 45/45, or 10 on a 68/45? Nicky please weight in or anyone.
Still chronos at 280-290-5ish

Can't wait to give the tuning guide a shot I have an lv1 on the way. Just wanted to wait a couple months to see the reviews.

My LV1 is coming in probably next Friday. My question is should I really worry about tuning it once I get it? I called Hustle Paintball and their techs said take it out the box and just let it rip. I feel like LV1s out the box are already near perfect and I don't see the need to tune it. I've shot one with stock settings, felt like sex in my hands..
