reg inconsistency

Ok for about a month now, my CP has been inconsistant. It starts at 276 and fluxuates from 260 to 290. I have lubed my reg and done all the other things. If anyone has experienced this or knows why my reg is being inconsistant, help would be much apreciated. Thanks

The solution is simple, get a sidewinder or 2 liter. LOL.

Seriously though, if you are having that much of a problem i would send it in to cp for rebuild.

I would visit the CP site and look at any documentation they might have on their regs and or contact them directly.

Speaking of Pi, I was just at AirSoldier's today and he's selling Pi's for like $50.

The Pi is incredible, just make sure to get the HP version if you plan to use it on an Interceptor.

I'm not a CP fan at all for this reason. It seems to me like their regs always work fine for a while, then suffer from terrible velocity spikes and inconsistency.

I wish every gun came with an AKA reg. They're so much better than everything else on the market (with a few exceptions) it's laughable.

Could be several problems, not just the CP:

Make sure the CP piston is cleaned / greased.
Make sure the CP reg seat is clean and dry.
Make sure your LPR is clean and greased properly.
Make sure your dwell is high enough.
Use good paint
Make sure you have a good paint / barrel match

The CP HPR is a decent performer. Unless it's defective it should be plenty adequate for the Interceptor. The first thing to do is change the battery, lube the HPR and LPR and check that the dwell is at least 8ms (too low will effect consistency). If that doesn't work, before you spend money on a new HPR try to isolate the problem. Use the CP on another marker or put another HPR on your Interceptor to make sure the CP is the source of the inconsistency. If it turns out that the CP is not the problem then your money might be better spent on replacing the stock LPR. I can't speak for the average consistency of the stock set up but with a Sidewinder and Hybrid Verdikt LPR/volumizer I get within +/- 3 everytime.

LOL. It's been a while since I put the Hybrid LPR on and I've tinkered around with so many markers since then that I honestly don't remember if the front block sealing o-ring had to be changed. I don't think so, but if it did have to be changed it would just be to a thinner one.

I don't know if we're talking about an 05 or 06 but my stock 06 hpr has been performing extremly consistant.
Might be another option.

My 05 ceptor been having the same problems. But it would flucated from 250-317. I was told its due to a break in period, but how long would that be? Should i also up the dwell some>?

They (Evolve) has a new version out too that runs from 0-750 psi. No more HP or LP.

Your velocity fluxuations are pretty extreme, and could be due to a combination of a break in period and really ****ty paint. Up the dwell to 9 and lower your pressure for more consistency. Also, dryfiring whenever you can will help speed up the process.

whats is the break in period you guys mention? is that where the first shot is always 300+ then the rest are all low? then if you wait like 30 seconds to a minute between the next shot its back up to 300 again? because thats what mine was doing last time I played
