Gun isn't getting low FPS.

My friend's epiphany is getting 200-210 FPS while the reg is on 160. The dude upped it to like 500 or something really high and it was still getting like 240.

Any ideas on what it might be?

sorry, come again?

The operating pressure of the Epiphany ought to be in the 210ish range.

I would suggest taking out the insert to let as much gas in as possible and then raising the dwell if need be. I can almost guarantee you simply aren't getting enough air into the gun.

sorry the title is supposed to say the gun isn't getting enough FPS.

I assumed because the epiphany is basically an upped ION the pressure should be around 160. hmmm, I'll try that.

thanks.

I am getting 280 with reballs. no insert, Kila Detents and QEV. if you are using paint and have stock detents and no QEV, i would suggest trying the 240-230 range with no insert.
