Consistency issues with the ETEK 3

TOday I noticed a large range over the chrono with my ETEK 3. It started at 268 then after four or five shots ranged from 274 to 312. Has anyone ever seen this? If so what did you do to fix it. The gun is used so I'm sure its broken in. It has an APE OLED board, Zick2 rammer and Hush bolt.

Clean and relube the regs, make sure your LPR isn't too low, clean and re-lube your ram, and check that your dwell isn't set too low.

how is your paint to bore match? if you are using the stock barrel which is a .693 and you are using say graffiti paint which is around .682...its going to be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway...lots of air is going to move past the paintball = outta whack chrono readings.

But it wouldn't be that big. Even with a .692 barrel and some .683 graffiti I'm shooting +/- 13 on my Etek2.

Thanks for all the help the dwell was set at 10 and I upped it to 12. I have no way to chrono till next weekend. I tried to find a LPR tester for the ETEK3 but the only site that seems to make them doesnt have any. I have read I should turn the LPR in two turns from flush once the marker is broken. Does this check?

Sounds about right. Don't waste your money on the lpr tester...the lpr adjustment isn't really that significant.
