    My compressor runs about 130-140f on average. It starts at ambient and builds up to that range but so far it hasn't exceeded that temp. Seems like the flow rate vs the heat produced finds an equilibrium about that temperature.  The area of concern would be the o-rings in the high pressure side.
    I assume that people try to run colder water by using ice to aide in maintaining a lower temp.  Does that cause additional risk?? Probably if the water is excessively cold?
    But if it is only helping to maintain ambient temperature of the water and remove the excess heat?? That should be fine.

    The more concerning part of the system is the point the temperature is being taken from. Because the sensor is at the base of the outer edge of the high pressure cylinder that leads me to believe the actual temp in the cylinder is much higher. 
    At any case the speed that these compressor generate high pressure can't be good for longevity of the compressor.  Slow and steady would be the best way to achieve the 4500 psi.  The shoebox compressor actually had a better theoretical design. 
    These Chinese compressors are cheap and living on borrowed time every time you run it! 

    The sooner we accept that fact the better we can deal with the reality of failure.  NEVER assume that these compressors are safe!!

    Hell I expect it to fail every time I run it! 

    I'm grateful every time it doesn't! LMAO!!

    You'll never have the latest and greatest!
    Do you need the latest and greatest???
    I have the MKII purchased just before the MK3 came out.

    My Prod sees more action than any of my FX airguns.

    It's not the bottle that's the concern.  It's the seals in the rifle and the regulator. 

    The bottles can take 300 bar all day long! 

    The seals in the gun and the regulator not so much! 

    If you don't need to fill it so high I would avoid it. I only fill my Impact to 230ish.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should!  Just my 2 pennies!

    In regards to a short micro-bore hose, check Air Tanks Plus.  You might want to ask Joe B as well.

    On another note, how's the accuracy of your FX gauges?  One of the main reasons most people change them out is because of the inaccuracy of their gauges. 

    I'm fairly sure this is 100x better than the cheap Chinese crap that came on the fill station.

    As for fills? Not sure yet how many fills I can get. My P-rod shoots about 40ish good shots on the reg. I basically use it when I go over to my buddy's house to do pesting. Only refilled my gun once.  The P-rod has a really small air tube.
    The set up after I fixed the issues, works really well for what I need.  For my Impact I have a MSA 30min bottle.

    Sounds like a binding issue.
    Either the cocking lever bolt  is binding with the tube? Or the hammer pin is binding with the breech

    The little pin that is installed in the hammer.

    ((If I remember correctly one side is long then the other)).

    May be you have it installed upside down.  Flip it over and give that a try!

    By your tone of entitlement and the demanding nature of your correspondence? I would probably decline your offer as well.  (Sorry just being honest)

    It's a No win situation for them.

    I can get it to cock and fire once or twice, then the screw comes out of the back hole on the hammer, so the bolt has nothing to grab onto to cock back…. if that makes sense.

     

     

     

    Then YES! You need the correct pin.

    That screw is used in place of the cocking pin. The debouncer should be a few O-rings in the tube that the hammer hits. But I'd suspect that the screw is your problem.

    If you put the hammer back in does it catch the trigger sear?  Maybe the previous owner messed with the sear?

    Oh? Almost forgot your trigger is adjustable and the screws tend to move. The 2 tiny allen screws on the trigger housing might have moved, and is not allowing the trigger sear to engage the hammer.

    Is the magazine spring indexed? Or does it work like the Wildcat MK2?

    May not be the same issue. But I was having the same sort of accuracy issue when using the pin probe, went back to the pellet probe and my Impact was a tack driver again!

     

    For some reason the pin probe wasn't seating the slugs or the pellets properly.  
    I'm not saying that's your issue but it might be something to consider.

     

    Also more information would be needed to try and figure out what your gun is doing.  i.e. FPS, Regulator pressure hammer settings etc….

    All these  things play a role in tuning the rifle to it's optimum.  Did you watch the Tuning videos on the M3?

     

    Oh??  Did you clean you liner before you shot it??

     as a left handed shooters the mag  gets on your cheek versus the other FX guns with small mags or been on the left side of the gun, am’I making sense? Also the cheek rest on the impact its for right handed. I would like to see FX  or after market vendor  to modify the mag entry on the impacts specifically for left handed shooters. My humble opinion. Be safe.

    100% agree! This should be possible!
    Fredrick is left handed if I'm not mistaken. I don't see why he wouldn't make a Left hand friendly model?

    Side Shot are you listening????   Here's a market for the high cap magazines, and adapter plate.

    I guess it's like an exotic sports car?  Is it worth the price? Is it practical? Nice to have, but not necessary!  Pick up truck is much more useful. (for me any way)  BUT! If I were entering a race or a competition?? YES! I'd like something specifically designed to give me the biggest advantage possible.
    To each their own.

    I purchased one when the first came out.  End up selling it.

    Ended up having seller remorse! Purchased the MKII. 

    Do I need it for the type of shooting I do?  Absolutely NOT!!

    I also have a WildCat MKII which I'm luck if I take it off the wall to shoot once a year?

    My most useful gun is my old faithful P-rod.  For pest control that's really all I need, it's deadly accurate out to 50 yards.

    So how did your Yong Hengs die?

    First one, the top of the HP piston broke off. Second one, I haven't found the problem yet. It made a loud pop noise like a burst disc ruptured but after examining it, it is OK. Pulled the top end apart and piston rings and reed valves are OK. Checked for leaks, using soap, on all connections but nothing. It will only pump to a tad under 2000 PSI and go no higher. I'm just tired of futzing with these cheap Chi-com boat anchors.

    Mine did that a few times. Once it was acully the burst disc, one time it was the o-ring in the line filter, and the recent time it was the female foster fitting.(the foster fitting that comes with the compressor for some reason uses 2 orings stack inside.

    If you are using your magazine you are not able to seat a pellet as far forward as a slug with the pin probe or it will interfere with the operation of the magazine.  If you are loading single shot it can be adjusted  to seat a pellet further forward.  I bought mine so I could adjust where the pellets and slugs were seated in the chamber.  But sold it when I found I had to load single shot to do so.

    Actually even with my single shot thingy, the pin probe can only be adjusted so much until it will interfere with your ability to install the single shot device or the magazine. Like you I ended up just selling the pin probe. For me I didn’t think the slight increase in performance was worth the loss of consistency.

    Well the limitation of the pin probe to seat a pellet is the ability to load the magazine. I had it set at the maximum it could go. Tried several things until I finally gave up.  Switch liners and even purchased a 500mm barrel kit thinking it might have something to do with harmonics of the barrel.  Finally realized it was the pin probe.

    Now I'm back with the pellet probe and my gun is a "Tack Driver" again. 

    I was thinking that even if the pin probe was seating the pellet in an odd way, that by the time it traveled down the barrel it should have corrected itself.  But that didn't seem to be the case. 

    In any case? I just wanted to give people the heads up if they are experiencing the same symptoms as I was.

    My P-rod loves the regular Polymag pellets.  Haven't tried the polymag short yet.  I also use JSB 14.3 gr.

    Flash point is only a concern on rapid compression.   Not when compressed gas is released..
