Pressure dropping issue - dm6

Hey all! First time posting about a gun fix here. My trusty dm6 was having issues for the first time. I pulled her out of a 10 year commission today.

Prior to today i cleaned the main chamber where the bolt barrel and paint go. Luned her up. Changed orings.

She aired up great. And played well for about 4 games.

I noticed a couple things. My velocity was not very consistent. It was like +\- 9-12bps and rarely within 2-3 consistently.

I also noticed some spikes on the first ball out the barrel. High velocity and sometimes a chop.

Then by the 5th game my veloctiy would drastically drop with every round fired and by the 5th or 6th round it shot like 10 yards.

I tried messing with the internal adjuster and the reg adjuster and that worked to get through the day. But want to get her tuned right for next weekend

Its a dye aftershock dm6 so it has shocktech upgrades (not sure exactly what they are)

The other thing is that the board was reset with batteries being dead and all. Wasnt sure if dwell or trigger sensitivity affects it and causes those issues.

Thank you!!!

dead battery wouldnt change the settings.
i'd service both regs.. probably needs a new reg seat. and some lube.

The settings were all off whenI booted her up but I put them at factory settings.

I'm not sure how to service a reg nor do i know what a reg seat is. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

then you have a problem with your board. the settings will never change because of the battery being dead, or removed from the board. they should stay the same as what it is set to.

as far as servicing the regs....

(i'll edit as i find a post that shows how to remove the lpr, and take apart the hyper2)

Are all regs similar? The reg on mine is a Shocktech.

In regards to the board, it may not have changed for all I know. I couldn't tell you what they were last at. It seems to be working and adjusting fine.

for a shocktech reg. its the same as a cp reg.. probably wouldnt need to service that.. its more than likely the lpr that needs the rebuild.

sorry about that. assumed it was a hyper2.
