hey guys! so i got my 2012 team sponsorship package in, and i settled for a proto reflex, the gun is nice enough, shoots decently smooth, and is semi quiet all in all a good marker Posted Image
except for the fact that out of the box it has shit efficiency! i shot a rotor and 1 pod and used over 1200psi in my 68ci tank, what can i do to better the efficiency?

rotor + pod = about 2 in a half pods... which equals about 6 pods for a 4000 fill that's about right... it'll break in a bit and you'll see an extra pod or so

The stock barrel back is a 0.690"&nbsp; You can under bore by getting a Dye UL 0.684" and/or 0.680" barrel backs.&nbsp; <br>

This^^ but won't give you much more maybe like 25+ shots a bolt upgrade with lower dwell will do better

realistically how much can a bolt upgrade really boost it?

a decent amount actually, increasing your average velocity by 15 fps or so combined with an underbore which would jack it up another 15fps would do a lot.

buying a bolt upgrade is close to imposible here in vnzla, so i guess i can try and lower the dwell as much as i can and get a smaller barrel back

Or you could spend 20 dollars less for a $40 Lurker Eigenbarrel, which has an even smaller bore.
