I don't really want to deal with shipping the whole gun haha.

I just took a look at the pooty mod...looks like he just polishes the bolt tip...not sure what sort of advantage, if any, that provides.

He removes some material as well ... I would imagine it lightens up the bolt, so less moving mass, less vibration. It would also lower the drag on the bolt which may also help it run better at lower dwells. Some have reported FSDO at lower dwells.
Looking forward to seeing more Insights!

Sent my board in during lunch. Should arrive to Blast on Thursday so hopefully they can flash it same day (Heather mentioned they do so long as it doesn't arrive Friday) and then get it back Saturday.

Thats what I'm hoping. She said since I'm in Southern California that it should only take 2 days to ship back. Although...I emailed her on Friday my address for the replacement o-rings and still haven't received them

For whatever reason BLAST's turnaround on shipping stuff is abysmal. Wish they'd fix that.

Nice man! I like the colors. A Dye CF Boomy would look killer on her. Welcome!

I use my.684 UL this is how I got her back from BLAST

But question for everyone. How many cases have you gone without lube in one day? Sometimes we have 2-3 case day practice or at tournament shooting 6-8 cases in one day. Does anyone have problems?

Do you lube during the event? Just curious.

Speaking of the o-ring upgrades, I wanted to verify this somewhere.

The 019 on the inside of the front can is being replaced by the 20x2 correct?

Are all the 010 o-rings (3 in total) urethane now instead of buna?
More specifically, this would be the two 010's on the back of the bolt(?) guide and the one 010 inside the gold "donut"?

And my Insight for good measure.

I'm hoping I'll get it back quick. I have a tournament next saturday, and since they are in northern california and I am in southern, shipping realistically should only be 2 days (and thats what I was told by them as well). My board is arriving there today, so I e-mailed them to see if they can just throw in the new orings when they ship the board back.

You may want to call and pester them daily to ensure it was sent. And have a backup plan ...

Good questions I just switched mine in the brass shut off today, I am not sure about the two on the back of the ram housing. In his video he just shows replacing the one on YouTube inside the shutoff.

If I don't get it by Monday or Tuesday I'll give them a call. If It is not back by Friday..I can always use a teammates gun..albeit not ideal since I haven't even played with my Insight yet.

Beautiful Insight!
You are correct that the 19 was replaced with the 2x20. Only the 010 inside the Brass shutoff is replaced with a urethane o-ring; the two on the sail remain buna d70s. Others have been experimenting with other o-ring types and have had some success.

To find out what version you have, start it up like you are going into program mode. Hold the trigger then power up. The board version will flash real quick before going into program mode.
