You probably need to turn up the recock and turn down the spring tension, but I don't know for sure. Krupasjeans will be able to help you better.

Check out this guide on ICDO

Cat Velocity Tuning Guide

I think my mainspring tension screw on my Cats are turned in 3 revolutions, my velocity screw unscrewed 3-4 revolutions and my recock unscrewed probably about 3/4 to 1 revolutions.

I use HP air and prefer my Crossfire steely tank which delivers 850psi consistently.

My mech ICD markers will pound down (go pppppp) when I am not shooting paint. This makes for a very efficient marker, but prevents the bolt from recocking when dry firing.

Print out the guide, take it to a field, find a chrono, put paint in it and go from there.

Either your tank isn't outputting enough or you need a new mainspring or it could be some other obscure issue. Try it on CO2 on a hot day to see if it will work. If it will, likely need to bump your N2 tank output pressure somehow.
