Is it necessary to break in new marker?
Posted 27 December 2012 - 10:55 PM
I have a new Axe on the way, and I was planning to get a Boss bolt for it this weekend. However, most things I read say that you should break the marker in before upgrading things such as a bolt. I want to maximize efficiency right away since I use a 3000 psi tank and fill from a scuba tank, so I was hoping I could swap out the bolt and sweet spot it using this technique:
Now I am wondering if doing this out of the box would be bad for the marker, or if it just wouldn't be as effective? Or would it matter at all? What does everyone think about this?

My main motivation to swap the bolt was to maximize efficiency. I use a scuba tank to fill so can only fill to 3000 PSI (and less after the first fill), so it's important to get the most shots I can per fill. I don't mind refilling after each game, but I don't want to end up running out of air mid-game. I was planning to do the sweet spotting and swap the bolt since it seems like doing that would allow me to drop the operating pressure to around 140-160, and additionally I should be able to lower the dwell. My biggest concern was that if there is any problem I might create doing this out of the box.
I am thinking the worst case is that once it breaks in a little, I will need to re-tune it, which is fine. I just want to make sure there won't be any long term risk from making such changes before it has even seen paint.
