Pimp Problem

My buddies pimp is getting horrible gas efficiency he is only getting around 700 rounds on a 68/3000. He has shot about 3500 to 4k rounds thru it to break it in and the Reg and LPR are pretty close to the default settings the Dwell is set at stock too. We are both new to working on a pimp so any input would be appreciated.

most people get between 1200-1500 shots out of a 68/4500. going down to a 68-3000 he should get about 2/3'rds of that amount. so he's down at 800-1000 so he's not to far off.

try lowering the LPR down some. as long as the velocity is around 280fps keep lowering the lpr. if the dwell is stock then this should be a good setting to start from.

you are still kind of in that break in period. you can probably lower your lpr and dwell just a little bit. what is the lpr and dwell at? if the pimp is broken in and you lower the settings you should get much better efficiency

How well does your paint fit the barrel. If the paint is too small it can make a big difference.

I use a 68/3000 on my Pimp...now that I traded my Monster 114/4500. While I cannot exactly say how many shots I get off a tank now( I fill occasionaly between games out of boredom) 700 rds off a full 68/3000 is way off. I used to get that out of my Mags ( they eat gas, and will only shoot into the tank till about 800psi). My Pimp is VERY easy on air.Do as said above, and you will envy the air efficiency he gets.

He has a pipe system so the paint to barrel match is good. We'll try lowering the LPR like Dave said this weekend at the field (I don't have a crono at home). Thanks for the help guys.
