Review: The results with my BKO.

HPR 200psi

LPR set according to manual - turned in until leak from solenoid, then back out 1/2 turn which should put the LPR at around 85-95psi

330-335 fps

500 shots used up 1000 psi of HPA (when fps set to 275 +-4 by adjusting the LPR)

I'm extremely pleased with the results. I think the combination of the Vapor valve and a larger volume LPC is the most important upgrade for the BKO. It improves the flow and efficiency of the marker. The recommended setting of the HPR is 200-250psi with the LPR set as per above. This is supposed to give you 280fps using the stock valve and cap. The valve and lpc combo appears to have increased the fps by 40-50fps. Also, most people quote 800 shots from a 68/3k tank. I will get at least 1200. Roughly 50% improvement in efficiency.
Conclusion: I would highly recommend this product due to it's excellent price/performance ratio. This together with a higher volume LPC (such as the AKA Mighty max, or Vaporworks new LPC for the BKO) will decrease your operating pressure and increase your efficiency.
