First of all, define blew up. The probability of your inline actually blowing up is close to 0%.
Second, did you simply take this out of the box and shoot it? If so, I actually would not expect it to work. As far as I know, WGP didn't actually test and adjust guns so that they were shootable right out of the box. My 2k3 cocker wasn't.
You're probably better off 1) not sending it back because JT probably doesn't give a **** and it's going to cost you money, and 2) learning how to do it yourself because, after all, it is your gun and you should know how it operates.
If you can't get it over 220, then there are a few things to look at: first of all, make sure your tank is screwed in all the way. I'm not calling you an idiot, but everybody does it at least once. In fact, last weekend my friend was getting drop off and it turns out his tank wasn't in all the way.
How far in is your velocity adjustment screw? If it's in pretty far, I'd say more than half an inch from being flush with the back block, then check your inline reg.
How is your consistency? if your FPS is all over the place, your inline is probably too low or too high. In this case, it sounds like it's too low. I would turn out your velocity screw all the way to flush with the back block, then turn it in 2 full turns. Then start turning up your inline reg a quarter at a time until the FPS stops climbing. Once it stops climbing, turn it back down a quarter and check your FPS. If the shots are consistent, your reg should be set. From there, if your velocity is low, but consistent, turn in the velocity screw until you reach the desired FPS. This is basically sweet spotting your inline. Assuming your FPS is now consistent, you should never have to adjust the inline again.
If your FPS doesn't go up as you turn the reg up, then it's probably too high. The pressure against the valve is too high for the hammer to open it. Repeat the procedure I just said but turn the reg down instead of up. Turning it down should now allow your FPS to climb because there is less pressure keeping the valve closed, allowing it to open more when the hammer hits it. Turn the reg down until your FPS stops climbing and becomes more consistent, then turn up your velocity screw to get the desired FPS.
Hope this helps...post back if you're not getting anywhere.
