Weird axe behaviour?
Hi guys, i have recently bought an used empire axe ( shockwave board ) which had at most 4 games on it. I immediately took it apart, cleaned it and re lubed it.
The gun shoots great but something caught my eye. I've noticed that after turning the asa OFF, the regulator will still keep pressure in it. It will then proceed to depressurize itself after aprox 10-15 minutes or ill have to shoot once to take out the remaining air from the gun, after this the pressure will go down to 0. This is the first axe i own, in fact, its the first paintball gun i've ever owned but this cuaght my eye because from what i know, every other on/off asa will depressurize as soon as you turn it off.
Also i have noticed that the pressure on the reg came stock at 190 psi ( i haven't touched it ) but when i shoot, the pressure will go down to about 170-190 and when i stop shooting it will go back to 190. Is this normal? I only chronoed it once and it was shooting consistently between 275 and 285 fps.
I apologize if these are noob questions and for my english, but i'm new at this and would like to know if this is normal behaviour.
Thanks in advance
