Dp G3 Fsdo

This is my fourth weekend playing with the G3 which I bought used. Last time I posted I was having issues with lube. I have since fixed that and am now using monkey poo from o-ring monkey. Every time I walk out onto the field my first shot is always low. Like only going at half velocity. After the first shot the gun performs normally, until the end of the day. At the last game of the day it was chopping paint and balls were rolling out of the barrel while I was firing. I was on ramping. I had plenty of air left and am using a halo too loader. So I know there is a setting in the gun that modifies first shot velocity, but I have no idea how to change it. But that doesn't explain the random paint chopping and balls rolling out of the barrel. Any suggestions?

One of the other guys will be able to help you but I think that has something to do with one of the board settings...dwell maybe?

Detents are the little nubs that hold the paintball in the chamber area until it is shot out.

Clean your eyes. Change the battery. Relube the reg and bolt with lube and make sure not to put in on the ring behind the bolt as this will cause bolt stick.

I will try to set the dwell back to factory and the abs setting as well. When I lube it I lube all the o-rings. Which one should I not be lubing?

Have you serviced your noid at all??
alot of times, FSDO comes about because of the noid needing serviced....
A good indication for me is that at least, If you have serviced the noid, replace the orings on the noid than service it...

Whenever i get a used g3 from anyone, this is one of the first things i do, replace the orings on the noid than service it....
