Speed drop when shooting full auto.

Hi, I love my SP1. I bought mine last October, and shot through about 3000balls so far. But when I shoot SP1 in full auto, the paintballs are noticeably slower after first few shots than when I shoot single shots. Is this normal? I didn't notice it until recently.

Also, I am thinking it might be the regulator, so I am trying to lube it. What kind of lube should I use? I have a sk33k for regular maintenance of SP1, can I use that or should I use different oil? (I have gold cup oil.) How much lube should I put on? This is my first marker, so I don't really know how to take care of my marker well.

Thanks for your help in advance. Please help me.

Are you using HPA or CO2?

I run HPA through my SP1

I use HPA 62/3000 by the way. So it's not because of CO2 inconsistency.

What loader do you use? If slower doesn't mean drop-off.....

One problem people dont realize often enough is their tank isn't screwed in all the way sometimes. The ASA is a tight fit and sometimes people stop turning when it feels snug, but the tank may not be in all the way. Check that first, second is check your battery, third is make sure your gas setting is right and fourth is to chrono your marker. That should cover you for now, if not then come back and let us know.
