Drone dx velocity issues

Hey folks, i have a drone dx bought used... I have had a lot of problems with this marker. I have now gotten it to shoot after some issues, and it is having very wide velocity gaps. an example is (280,150,315, puff of smoke, 225, puff of smoke, 300) does anyone know what the problem could be? i am guessing regulator. thank you

Check your reg seat in the velocity adjustment screw. If you see a definitive ring worn in to it flip it over or purchase a replacement from MD or a service center. Also make sure you have a good name brand battery (personal recommendation of Duracell or Energizer) in the marker. Relube the marker and reg and ensure the proper oring sizes are where they should be and let me know if that changes anything.

i lubed up the bolt, gunna take a peak at the reg tonight. only have the orings the marker comes with for spares... think it is worth it to get an oring kit? dont want to throw away even more money at a marker that is not working! iv tried 2 different techs to fix it (non were straight from macdev though, only local)

These are very simple markers and should be easy fixes. Feel free to call me at my shop if problems persist.
