In Topic: Gen 4 intimidator leak!

It'll work fine with the stock ram. The Eigenvalve and Eigenram give it killer efficiency though. The purge hole in the valve/poppet gets rid of possible pneumatic lock that the stock poppets can sometimes get (you'll never have to purge the valve again like it says in the manual). But, it also changes the pressure bias on the valve when it's open making it want to close quicker and save air. The Eigenram is lighter than stock, so it allows the valve to close even quicker still, saving even more air.

 

With that said, any combination of valve and ram will work fine.

Ah, you have one of the first version delrin poppets without the cup seal o-ring. I probably should have picked up on that when you mentioned getting an all metal poppet, my bad. It's hard to tell from the video, but if it leaks out the feedneck after shooting it, it could very well be the poppet. You may need the metal version with three o-rings.

The valve doesn't affect the cycle. Because it has a purge hole to the front of the poppet, it won't experience pneumatic lockout like the stock poppet can, and it increases the efficiency.

 

The shrader valve seal is a flat urethane disk, not a regular o-ring. It's only an LPR instead of an HPR though, so it'll probably be fine if you used a small o-ring instead.

If the LPR has all new o-rings and is properly lubed, then an LPR spike means the schrader valve (the part under the big brass nut in the LPR) is going bad and most likely needs a new valve seat. As for the leak, have you aired up the gun without the grip frame screwed into the body? If it's a bad cup seal o-ring, then you'd only hear/feel air coming out of the top tube, but if it's a bad ram sleeve o-ring it would leak out the body and you'd be able to feel it.

 

Also, if you do end up getting a new poppet, I recommend the Lurker Eigenvalve.

Is your poppet physically damaged? You should just be able to put a new cup seal o-ring on the poppet, you don't need a whole new poppet.
