Tim why do you suggest 10.5 over the stock 12ms? I've found 12ms to fix alot of the problems of fsdo and bolt stick on guns that have come in the store to work on.

10.5 dwell has been enough to fix fsdo that occurred when the insight was first released. It yields the smoothest shot and best efficiency without any problems.

That being said, each marker is different and what works in the Midwest and lower elevations may not work in California / Colorado. Maybe you need the dwell that high out there because the air is thinner.

A dwell of 12 here makes the insight kick like an ego 11.

Hmmm, that's interesting. I've tried 10 and 10.5ms before a d didn't notice the differance. BUT I will start testing again. We are right near sea level here so the elevation isn't the issue. Many of the guns that have had the issue have been sent in from customers In the midwest.

I had to go to 12 yesterday for some reason. Gun was working, then started dropping off for some reason. Started at 10, then to 11. Worked for a bit, then dropped again. Finally consistent at 12. Dow 33 with triflow on front of bolt. Going to get some recalls so I can break it in some more...only a few cases through it so far.

Thanks guys. I love my insight and am eager to get both the bolt and the monkey poo. Now if only someone would make a mod for it to utilize a spring for assistance in fighting fsdo in colder temps.

Tried it, and it didnt work out. Upping the dwell fixed it though. And monkey poo.

Knock on wood, I have not experienced FSDO. I do keep my dwell at 11. Use Dow 33 on the engine, and tri-flow on the bolt tip.

Main difference I've noticed is that I am able to shoot brittle paint with no chops. I'm off tomorrow, so I'll work on a vid.

Dan, why don't you post a vid as well and we'll compare findings.

Tim sent me a video last night, but it appears as if he used a toaster to film it, so you can't really get much out of it.

It could also be that my flip phone ruined the video quality. I know if I transfer pictures to my PC it's full quality but I've never tried with a video before.

If you are chopping then you are having eye or hopper issues, no bolt with help with that.
