I've got a Minimag, it seems fairly new, but I have no idea if I have a level 10 system in it. I would rather not stick my tongue in it to find out. Video :mellow:

How can you tell if you have a level 10 system installed or not?

Thanks!

Post a pic of just the bolt, that's the easiest way to identify it. Let us identify it for you :rolleyes:.

Here. If it looks exactly like this picture, it's a Level 10. If not... well, it isn't a Level 10.

Don't do that. If it's not a lvl10 or if it's an improperly tuned lvl10, it will hurt you.

A squeegee will work but once you get the level 10 tuned just right a finger is more impressive.

Thanks for the help, I've got one more question:

I've got a leak out the end of the velocity adjuster. Seems like this will fix it.

" 1. A leak out of the velocity adjuster hole -

There's a number of things that could do this. The most common is a bad reg piston or you are over pressurizing the reg so it relieves pressure to keep the valve from shooting hot(try turning down the velocity or making sure the air tank isn't pumping out an extremely high amount of pressure). Other possible problems are a bad reg piston o'ring(check it and grease it), or too low of a velocity setting(try turning up the velocity). You will also get a leak if you do not pressurize the valve fast enough or there isn't enough pressure to seal the valve itself."

However I've never taken the valve apart before, is there some video that shows how to take apart the valve?

Thanks.

I don't remember ever seeing a valve disassembly video... but it's not hard to figure out on your own how to completely disassemble it. All you need is the allen key for the velocity adjuster, and to remove the powertube tip, a small coin like a penny, nickel, or dime.

do I just unscrew the velocity adjuster all the way to get to it? Won't it be hard to find the old set velocity?

Well you should really chronograph before every time you play, which would include after your regular maintenance anyway...

To disassemble the valve, screw it in half by hand in the middle. You're going to see a little rubber disc-thing sitting there. Remember which way it sits - this is the reg seat. If you put it in wrong, you will get bolt stick. Now, remove the velocity adjuster with the allen key. That's the inside of your regulator, pretty much. There are a few more steps to completely dismantle it, but nothing I think I can really describe properly with a keyboard :rolleyes:.

Ok, what do I take out exactly when you say, "screw it in half by hand in the middle"?

EDIT:

Ok so forget what I said above, I've got that figured out, but now I cannot get reg piston assembly apart.
