Victory v1 with Supercharged engine question

I have a BL Victory v1 with supercharged engine. When I set the pressures with the pressure tester at the recommended settings (210'ish and 75-85) I'm lucky to get around 180 FPS. After gently adjusting HPR and LPR I was able to shoot at around 280. However, when I then checked my pressures with the pressure tester the LPR pressure was right around 100 and the HPR pressure around 250. Does that seem right to you or is there something else going on?

Tonight I took the marker completely apart and cleaned and lubed LPR, HPR and engine. Unfortunately, I'm out of air so haven't been able to check whether or not this fixes anything.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Koop

Yep, pressure tester that came with the marker. Does anyone make one that is known to be accurate? Thanks.

Cool, much appreciated. I was also going to swap out the gauges of my tester with Ashcroft gauges per someone else's recommendation.

From this guy:

Since he's a dedicated paintballer and his prices are also very good I thought I'd throw my business his way.

Thanks for all the help.
