The Mitey Max increases the regulated air chamber inside the BKO by just about double. Having a huge amount of air already regulated to draw from means higher flow, no shoot down, decreased operating pressure and higher efficiency.
The AKA BKO Mitey Max is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
aka tornado valve
aka mitey max
apocolypse 2k tank
16" J&J Stainless steel 2 piece
it is priced average
It lowers operating pressure
It increases amount of shots per tank
No weaknesses, it does what it claims to do.
I had to turn up the pressure to my solinoid because it wasn't hiting the valve hard enough to open the passageway . After I increased the solinoid pressure the shootdown was eliminated. The spring that comes with the mitey max is very stiff and I think that also plays a large role as to why I had to turn the pressure to the solinoid higher.
Its alright. Not sure why I really felt I needed it. I guess I mainly bought it just to increase amount of shots. Other than that don't expect the mitey max to drasticly increase performance, it only increases amount of shots per tank and thats it. The lower opporating pressure really isn't that important. I give it a 9 because it does what it said it would do, but I wont give it a 10 because you pay quite a bit just for a hollow chamber with a spring.
Great upgrade if you want to get more shots per tank. Combine this with a higher flowing valve like the Vapor Valve and you will add 50% more shots. Looks good. Extremely easy to install. Umm, need more words. Its sturdy, built well, black, thats about it. STILL need more words. Good product, nothing wrong with it.
Definately get it if you have a 03 BKO or older. Wont work on 04's
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
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 higher flow valve and the AKA Mighty Max 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 Mighty Max 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.
This is a sure thing upgrade to the BKO along with a higher flowing valve such as the Vapor, Sonic Red, or AKA's own Tornado Valve
10 out of 10
