Return all the board settings to stock.

Skip the 5 turn LPR thing, do it like i said in previous post. I have had atleast one DM/PM in my bag since 2005, doing it like I said fine tunes the gun. Just going straight to 5 turns out could be overpressuring the bolt which leads to more chops.

Ok got my hopper and ran 400 rounds of cryptic paint through it trying to tune it like you said taco and didnt break a single ball ran out of air around 400 hundred rnds ( tank only had 1200 psi in it to start ) so it should be set? Seemed like it was shooting soft ( once again could be low air ). So i am thinking about getting a barrel kit to size the paint freak or ifit? Also has anyone tried the virtue rotor for the dye hopper?

Once you hit about 600 psi with a spool valve the FPS will start to drop but as long as the gun was shooting consistent the LPR should be fine. Now you just need a chrono to set the HPR.


I have both a rotor and prophecy right now. I haven't used the rotor in a game yet so i can't really comment on it to much but I will say I do love my prophecy. It feeds consistent and I have never had a single jam in it.


As for a barrel, freak gets my vote. Been using one in some form for the last 10 years. My favorite combo is the deadlywind barrel with the inserts.

i just bought another pm7 its a SE edition black and red anno its really sweet looking got it for 140 waiting on it to get to me. What other things beside the barrel are good ideas for the pm7 i cant find a UL frame anywhere under 250 ( not worth that much to me ) Im use to a co2 mechanical gun.

UL is nice but people over hype it, original dm/pm frame is one of my favorites of all time.

PM really doesn't NEED anything. Maybe a aftermarket board to get into more fine tuning but even that really isn't a must have, well unless you need psp 12.5, idk if thats on stock pm7 board or not. Maybe a new trigger, but really shape is all preference.

A good barrel kit will see the most gain in performance.

You can get brand new dye grips for $5 here:

As for the hose you want macroline:

He also has colored fittings for the hose if your interested in that.
