FPS issues with my ION

OK..so I am having issues with my ION going over 250fps. I cleaned the reg, replaced all the hoses in the gun, cleaned and relubed the bolt, charged a tank to 4kpsi... and with the reg opened up, all I can get is 245fps-255fps. I tried numerous types of batteries to Furious, Duracell, Energizer and still nothing. I stumped... any suggestions? Should I try a new reg?

is this a new development or has it been doing this the entire time you have owned it? Have you recently changed something (bolt, QEV)?

Well, I've always kept it around 280fps, and since I got my g3, i haven't used it for a few months. I brought it out to the field last week and noticed while i was shooting it over the chrono it was aorund 245-250... i tried messing around with the reg to see if i could get it any higher, but i realized that i couldn't turn the reg any more.

And just for kicks, I put everything back on it (stock parts) and same result...245-250fps and can't get it higher. The stock board is reset to default factory settings.
