I just got a Dye NT10 brand new a few weeks ago. It's been giving me a lot of problems lately.
First practice: did nothing to the gun, it shot like a dream. Never felt such a smooth gun before. Shot a full case
Second practice: Didn't touch it since the first practice. Gun immeditely wasn't shooting well. kind of like it was choking. I turned up the reg pressure and the gun started shooting better, but this time it had more kick to it.
Third practice: after second practice I took it apart and lubed the bolt. Last night, gun was giving me CRAZY problems. Tons of kick, and chopping paint every 4th ball. I switched to a larger bore size and the chopping stopped, but the gun was innacurate.
Lastly, my Field didnt have a working chrono last night. And, I have been using the main spacer since the begining to not shoot too fast. other than that the gun is setup stock before i started touching the Reg.
I have a Hyper 3 pressure tester coming in the mail, and I'm hoping if I follow the below I'll be able to get it to work better. Now I don't know what the problem can be, and it's very frustrating. Any thoughts? how do you get this gun to shoot smooth, accurately, quiet, and not chop. I don't care about effieciency

1. Super smooth – lowest recoil, quiet, shoot the most fragile paint
a. Green bolt tip insert, no spacer insert
b. Operating pressure approximately 110psi
c. Efficiency: 1200-1300 shots off a 68/4500 tank
2. Stock settings from factory – balance of all performance features
a. Red bolt tip insert, no spacer insert
b. Operating pressure approximately 120psi
c. Efficiency: approximately 1400 shots off a 68/4500 tank
3. Efficiency one – better efficiency, still well balanced performance
a. Red bolt tip insert, green spacer insert
b. Operating pressure approximately 130psi
c. Efficiency: approximately 1500 shots off a 68/4500 tank
4. Efficiency two – ultimate spool valve efficiency
a. Red, or blue bolt tip insert, yellow spacer insert
b. Operating pressure approximately 140psi
c. Efficiency: 1600-1700 shots off a 68/4500 tank
