What is your operating pressure at?
Have you tried changing the battery?

You'd be surprised at how much the battery messes with your gun. If you ever have something wrong with your gun, try changing your battery. That's probably the easiest and cheapest thing to try.

yeah. and degass you tank and check the reg on it.
that was the culprit of a huge inconsistancy problem i had.
it may be gunked up. :/ and that sucks. but its an easy fix.
it probably the battery though.
