Hi had my new drone for about a month now and it seems that the reg is very touchy in adjustments. I mean a slight turn one way or the other and it up to 325 then down 250 or less then when i hit the chrono i am seeing rather large difference in fps 280 then 225 then 275 , 240, 280 ect like this anything i can do or check i have cleaned and reblube the bolt and reg. Aslo once in awhile i get first shot drop off thenit seems to shoot ok i have abuot maybe 3 cases of paint run thur it so far.Oh and i had a pretty close bore match also i didn't want to go to tight for fear of breaking paint.Thats why i got the drone my other gun won't say who's it was i broke paint often and s[ent too much of my time cleaning my gun all day long and not playing so far almost 3 cases which is know is not much for doing a break in and not a single break and i have shot field paint all of the time. so any help on the above questiona i thank you all ahead of time.
To be honest, that is the main reason I switched to a PE Violent Series SL3 reg. With an LP spring the adjustments are far less sensitive than the gladiator, the output is just as consistent and parts are much more readily available.
I don't really want to go messing with the gun being it's brand new. i recleaned the reg and found a bunch of grease on the set screw just below the oring don't know if that would do anything but i didn't think that a gob of grease should be there. CLeaned it off ran set screw in then aired up and shot till it did a full cycle . need to get a regulator pressure tested to check settign for 95 to 100 psi on the reg. the Dye tested will not mount up to that regulator i talked to them Monday afternoon.
Be sure to clear the reg inbetween chrono'ing. So if you're shooting 325, do a tiny tiny adjustment down, shoot two or three times in the dirt and then get a chrono reading from the next two or three shots.
