    I pulled all these pics from AEAC's Instagram page HookedOnAir 

    Steve is in the process of learning the Maverick (VP, Compact, & Sniper) and will be doing complete tuning guides (Pro, Power, & Eco).  Check out everything he's learned so far!  Hint… sometimes it pays to pave your own path instead of following the masses ;)

    Following along!  I just got my .22 VP and swapped the aluminum bottle for the 580cc CF bottle.  I was having a hard time getting it tuned above 900 FPS and then discovered, as you did, that sometimes less is more!  It's shooting the 18.13 grain JSB's at 988 FPS on PW #7 and 945 FPS at PW #5.  I'd really like to be able to sling some 25 grain slugs at over 1000 FPS, but will probably need the Slug Kit with the heavier hammer to achieve those numbers.  Thanks for the great pictures and info, I'm looking forward to the video!

    How much length of pull would YOU need to add before YOUR nose will sit behind the magazine while shooting left handed.

    How about that for a left field ( no pun ) question.

    Looking forward to another in-depth review

    Good luck.

    Steve, looking at all that research, all those shots, tweaks, more shots,  it is exhausting just looking at all that work I fully appreciate all that you do on your channel and various platforms. We get the benefit, you get the blisters!  🙂

    What a pleasure!  I've been tuning my Maverick .22 at the same time as you! Great to have someone that is verifying the same results as me! Thank you.

    Hi! Query: at what pressures are the regulators set to get 988 fps? and what autonomy is it giving?
     Thank you.

    I have the .22 as well and tuning to shoot the 18.13 at 1000fps is super simple following the guides of starting low on 2nd reg and working up. The hard part is getting slugs where you want them, even with the power kit. The hammer in the power kit is honestly too much for most people to shoot with. Unless you are planning to run the heaviest slugs and run the 2nd reg north of 150, that hammer just overpowers the valve and makes things tough. I simply cannot find anyone listing the hammer weight I need and am surprised people are not milling and making brass ones to sell with the dearth of them out there.

    Hey guys,

    I've added a bunch more Maverick tunes to my Instagram page, "hookedonair" 

    Max Power Tune

    Heavy Slug Tune

    2 FX Hybrid Tunes

    … getting about 72 fpe outta her AND a good long string WITHOUT use of the accessory heavy hammer kit.  Come on over and join me there on Instagram and follow along in real time!

    Today, I'll be working on tuning the Compact version with digital Sekhmet Gauge.

    Enjoy,

    Steve

    Beautiful pics indeed. I just received my EDgun Leshiy 2 from EDgun West and was extremely pleased with the accuracy but not so much with the low magazine count. Seriously thinking about selling it and buying an FX Maverick.
