PM5 LPR... quick question...
Posted 16 February 2009 - 08:45 AM
From what i understand, screwing it in lowers the force (in PSI) that the bolt is pushed back with, all the way in is 25 PSI, one 180 degree turn is raising it 5 PSI (from starting position), factory default was 75 psi (5 full turns from being all the way in)
Now my marker seems to have a crapload of kick, so i was wondering, what do you guys think i would be able to set it at? I hear that some people set their PM5 to 1 1/4 turns, i dont get how, thats like, 40 PSI of force, isn't that too low?
Any help is appreciated, right now im going to reset it to the factory default (all the way in then 5 turns out)

You got the idea. Just have to play around with it.

"2 Ways To Reduce Kick:
1. The higher the dwell, the lower you can turn the LPR down; so the bolt moves a little slower for a little longer. This is how the Ironmen tune their guns (Dwell:19-21 LPR:2-3; Basically they set their dwell then lower their LPR til it drops-off then raise it about a 1/4 of a turn)
2. You can decrease the HPR pressure, this will in turn lower the psi in the dump chamber which will result in less kick
Both of these methods will make the marker quieter and softer on paint at the expense of not being as efficient."
