you probably need to rechrono and reset the gun. once you lube, the settings tend to be off. thats why this gun isn't reliable. get an ego.

Why does everyone say get an EGO.... There are so many better markers out there for cheaper loot. you dont have to spend $1000 for a good marker... etek 1 's are going for 300 brand new (basically an Ego6), DM 5 / 6 for $500.. I mean if your gonna be spending money on SmartParts upgrades.... Just buy a better maker instead.... Ego's aren't only markers out there.... depends waht your looking for.... RESEARCH!!

GET AN EGO... how does that help at all...

It doesn't... at all. There's no reason the settings should drift just because you lubed a marker. Lube a marker, get everything how it *should* be, then adjust the settings (pressure, dwell if necessary) and you should be fine.

dm5s are 200, dm6 about 275

why would u buy an epiphany for?

etek 1s are around 230-240

seriously...why buy smart parts and the CRAP of upgrades u need to spend on it.

i wouldn't get an ego...i would get a borg.

an Etek is not like an 06, heck, even 05 Ego.

I do believe the operating pressure of the Ego is lower.

When I had my epiphany, it was great for what it was, I never had a problem with mine, at all Just take your time to tune it.

I just don't like spoolies anymore.
