ion xe velocity issue.

I have a rather strange problem with an Ion xe I am looking at for somone.

From what I have read, operating pressure of the xe is roughly 180psi, however at 180psi my maximum velocity is about 210fps.

Marker is stock.
Dwell is set at 52 blips.
All orings are good and lubed.
Tried another reg and gauge in case the reg or gauge was lying.
Good paint match to the barrel.
Tried an orange bolt in case the bolt was causing issues.

The only way I can get the marker into the 280-290 fps range is by having the input pressure at 240psi, and that seems a little high.

And helpful suggestions are welcome.

Thanks.

Sometimes people will get one like this. Have you tried different tanks? The noid can take higher than 200 or w/e the "maximum" is.

Yeah, but that's terribly inefficient to have your pressure so high.

CyberThug, what is the recharge set at?

Tried three.

I ended up taking out that silver insert where the bolt goes, and now it shoots correctly.
