Velocity

i'm going down to oklahoma on thursday to play, so i took my gun out to the field today to make sure everything was working and to chrono the gun. i cannot get the gun to shoot above 240. It's usually at about 235 +/-13 or so. one of the guys there was helping out, but we tried pretty much everything with the HP and LP regs to no avail. i adjusted the dwell anywhere from 11-21 and nothing changed.

serious time crunch. now. mainly my own fault, but i could use some help. again.

Sounds like your lpr and hpr need a rebuild and lube.

Your hpr could be too high as well.

A very poor paint to barrel match could also have an effect on your velocity.

Have you done a tape mod to the bolt pin? If so, you probably have too much tape on the pin.

no i haven't done the tape mod and it is a brand new battery.

Edit*

and i just put my empire reg on and the gun flipped out. luckily, the last time i or the guy at the field screwed in the LPR screw it was put in wrong. so now that thing is pretty much done as well. I'm a little beyond pissed.

and the gauge jumps up as high as it can go as soon as the gun is aired up as well, creating the first leak that i had a problem with.

Check your mid bolt oring and check if your bolt is cracked.

dude apparently the demon living in your gun is angry at you lol.

So it was the reg? always make sure you close off a new reg completely before putting it on any gun. too late for that now I guess. take everything apart and give us pictures.

pull the lpr apart and clean/relube. unscrew the adjustment set screw for the lpr and gas the marker up, slowly turn it in until it reads about 80psi. double check your bolt orings before hand though, you may have poped one off.

It's basically impossible to blow an lpr. Check your bolt, under the middle bolt oring for cracks. Check the rest of it too. Swap your lpr piston oring. You might need a new schrader valve too. Swap your middle bolt oring. Check your lpr spring. Make sure it's assembled right. Piston spring dime cap.

Just in the future, it goes cap, washer, spring, piston for both the lpr and hpr. Check the bolt for cracks.
