The 2 magnets are suposed to repell off each other. If they are attracting each other you need to flip 1 of those magnets over 180 so it repells.

Okay, I have an odd Shocker problem. First I'll tell you what it has: Virtue board and CP V2 reg. Other than that, its a stock SFT. On to the problem...It won't shoot at anything below 280FPS. If I try to get it down to 220FPS (Indoor field rules) it just puffs and won't shoot. I have no idea where to start troubleshooting. The battery is fresh and the marker is lubed. I have a feeling it has to do with the reg, but not sure. I adjusted the dwell up to 15 with no luck. I assume it has to do with the reg because it shoots fine with a reg from my E-tek. I just don't want that to be a long term solution. So what can I do to get my Shocker working with my CP reg? Thanks!

Have you taken the reg apart and regreased it? And is the regs pressure range acceptable to attain the velocity you are looking for?

Other than what slow z rally just asked its worth noting since you say your running a stock bolt kit that sft's were notorious for not shooting at low velocities. For indoor play and was the entire reason NDZ made the adjustable bolt guide. The adjustable guide uses mechanical dwell to help adjust to lower velocities.

Ya, the reg says it can operate from zero to 500 psi. I took the shocker apart again and re greased everything. I'll try the CP reg again today when I get to my local field and see what happens. When it did shoot though it was all over the place. First shot was around like 300fps then drop to 260 then like 170 or so. I don't know anything about those CP regs so I'll read up on those too.

You should get an LP kit from CP for that reg. You have the HP version which it performs better at its higher pressure ranges and struggles at the lower ranges like a shocker runs at. The LP kit will make it opperate from 0-300 psi and will be much better in the sub 200psi range.

Thank you. I'll pick up a low pressure kit for the reg and pray that it fixes the issue. Am I okay running a planet eclipse reg for now though?

The Eclipse reg is working fine, but the gun still won't shoot properly under 265fps. I think I'll just have to get the low pressure kit for the CP reg and see if that works. If that doesn't work, I don't know what to do from there. I'd like to be able to use it indoor, but I don't know how to get it to shoot right at 220.

Look into a NDZ adjustable bolt guide.

When you say wont shoot properly, i assume you are experiencing bolt stick and/or dropoff? Usually the common symptoms associated with trying to play at low fps.

Yep, just kinda puffs and feels like the air tank is empty even though it is not. I figure I'll just use it as an outdoor marker and keep using my Ego indoor.

One thing that would help is a sprung bolt setup.

I'm having a continuing problem with my sft. When I start to play it shots fine and then about 2 pods into the day it starts to have drop off. It has all sorts of drop off, first shot and multiple shot drop off. Then I replaced the battery and it worked for a little bit and then after another few pods the drop off started again. I tried to raise the dwell, its set at 17 right now. It doesn't seem to help much. I adjust the reg pressure but there seems to be a fine line right around 200. if it goes above 200psi it shoots around 330, then if I go below 200 it starts to drop off..I'm not sure what to do, should I upgrade the bolt system?

It could be a lot of things.
1) it could just be oring fitment.
2) could be wiring harness issue.
3) could be a reg issue.
4) could be a grease issue.
Go to zdspb.com's tech section and find yhe parts about shoot down and bolt stick and just start one by one until you find the problem.

Quick question on aftermarket parts for an SFT. It seems like most of the parts and mods are for making the marker more efficient. Are there any combination of parts that are geared specifically towards being soft of tournament grade paint? as long as I get a hopper and 4 pods with a 68/45, I really dont care about efficiency. I just want to set up an SFT to be as easy on brittle paint as possible.

Eigen is softest. Allows you to lower the pressure a lot. Open face.

Stinger v3 is my second choice

I've personally shot an eigen out of my shockers since release date of the mg ones. Probably has 150+ cases of ultra evil through it at multiple tournaments. Plus I'm getting 10+ pods on a good day. I personally don't want to shoot a shocker that isn't eigened. I currently have 5 installed and 3 more sitting in a box waiting for future projects.

Not to mention the shocker already has a very low operating pressure compared to other guns on the market even today making it already fairly gentle on paint. Like Apollo I've shot many cases of tourney grade paint through many different shocker bolts and never had an issue.
