Proto Rail 2011 Settings

Just a quick question when it comes to settings for this marker,

What should my dwell be set to?

Factory is 30 but I've upgraded the barrel to a DYE UL and have a HALO B V35 w/ Rip Drive Loader. My BPS is set to 14.whatever so I just want to make sure that I either need to or dont need to change the dwell. Any help is appreciated. And any other suggestions for changes would also be appreciated.

nothing you have done, will effect the dwell setting.

From what I've experienced/read/etc...

Dwell is the amount of time the solenoid is in the "on" position. The higher the dwell, the lower the efficiency, but the gentler on paint, and the lower the chance of FSDO.


An improved hopper is just going to make sure you have a ball in the breech every time you pull the trigger.
A DYE UL barrel is going to provide a smooth, honed surface for the paint to be launched out the breech.

As Matrix stated - nothing you've changed should impact your dwell.

Now - as it gets colder, if you wish to play outdoor, you may have to increase your dwell, as colder internals and colder lube won't move or seal as well. In that situation, a thinner lube, and an increased dwell may help the marker cycle properly....reducing bolt-stick and FSDO
