Update: with all aforementioned fix attempts made, it now has an interesting pattern in the string.. it will start high, then drop 30 or so fps and then creep back up alittle at a time...
for example: 297-294-271-282-286-290... etc

When I bought my 09 it had a Zick2 rammer and the stock back cap on and I didn't realize it. It wasn't a very nice shot to say the least.
Yes it is the stock rammer and the stock ram cap, thanks for asking nonetheless

Alright... I guess now we check the stuff that should be obvious but could be an issue nonetheless.

Rammer lubed with oil not grease, yes?

Fresh name brand battery, yes?

Board loaded with factory preset, yes?

New LPR piston oring, yes?


Turn your LPR back to flush again just for kicks and giggles and try a different tank if you have the ability.

It would definitely be worth trying another tank - or at the very least changing your output pressure of your existing tank back to HP if you have the option to do so.

I thought having a tank on LP with an EGO could only cause drop off during shooting at high rates of fire? not with consistancy issues when 1 balling

I have an ego 09 and had the same exact problem. As i read into it, people said the HPR piston wears down with use, i replaced mine and its good as new. You can get the part on "ansgear.com" for $15

I had similar thoughts, thanks for the thoughts

Will give a try to a different tank, if that fails, i will be picking up a new piston

What chrono is it?
I've seen a couple of the old big red radar chronos that are horribly inconsistent.

A good thought, but I've tried it with 4 chronos

I also just noticed a tiny leak from the very bottom of the regulator that to hear you literally have to have the reg in your ear... what is causing this? THE ENTIRE REGULATOR HAS BEEN REBUILT WITH NEW ORINGS, so what else could cause this leak?
