Strange problem

When my tank gets low, I need to screw in my ASA a little more,which I didnt think was a big deal. Now, as my tank gets lower, my gun starts shot dropping, sometimes so bad that the "SD" ball wont even leave the barrel,causing a double feed effect when shooting.
FSDO comp is at 2.0ms
dwell is at 12.0
I have not cleaned the regulator
I've tried a few different settings, it almost feels like the gun is skipping a shot sometimes.
Any help or suggestions is appreciated!

Like 1500, I'm not that dumb
It's a Pure Energy tank w/Stock Reg.
I'm suspecting some problem with the OOPS maybe....

Any chance you have another ASA to test with?

You may want to check the reg to confirm that there is no debris gumming it up and give it a proper lube

Yea, as soon as I get time today, I'm gonna clean the reg and relube everything. It could be some very minimal bolt stick too, but I'm really not sure. Good idea on another ASA to test it with, I might have one.

could it also be that problem where the oops pin obstructs the flow of air so you have to back it out to get better flow?

or maybe its problem with the pin on the tank reg??
