Question Spyder Victor air inefficiency problem

I have an 08 Victor that has been very air inefficient lately, it took about 300 psi from my 48/3000 air tank to fire around 20 shots. The gun is not leaking and is only set to ~270 fps. It is also much louder than other paintball guns I've shot. Any ideas on what's wrong?

That is very inefficient...
If you know how. Break down your marker clean it up, lube, air up, and try again.
Also, try investing in a spring kit that includes valve and main springs. This will help when tuning your Spyder.

Ok, the gun was cheap so I don't think I will put any money into it. I will just try cleaning it.

Spring kits are like $5 at most.
