Thumbs up

At the practice Saturday we were keeping a very close eye on air usage. I'm very happy to say it was 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 psi per ball on an 88 ci tank. All four guns had the new valve spring upgrades.
Per Eileen, if you have sent in your warranty card AKA will be sending you the adapter and spring in the mail. If you haven't sent in the warranty card they don't know where to send them! Fill it out and send it to in as soon as possible.
It's very easy to install. Post here if you have any questions or problems.

how many shots did you get out of your tank? And what was the output pressure of the tank set at?

I'm not sure how many total because we topped the tank off when we got down to about 1500. The output is at 800 psi into the Sidewinder.

All the Excaliburs made after the 2nd week of March have the spring upgrade. To tell if you have it take the cap off over the valve stem. The spring should be a short autococker valve spring with a short metal extension. The spring should not be a conical type.

Mine should be back at AKA right now. They should be doing that replacement along with the hammer solenoid. Good to see them going more to the off the shelf parts. Makes it easier to get parts.

Yep and if you think about it what would happen if I put in a softer spring? Can the output of the Sidewinder drop even more? I don't think the LPR can go lower since it still has to cycle the bolt. Hmmm more stuff for me to play with and test!

But, it doesn't take alot to cycle the bolt. Can you say 45psi? The only thing about going low on the LPR is that everything starts moveing slower at some point. Hmmm, it will be interesting.
