Chrono issues

So I took my kp3 internals out last night to lube them and put them in.
I read the instructions and did what they said ,but now it shooting inconstant at the chrono jump from 220 to 280 and back and breaking balls. anyone have a video of kp3 maintaince to see if I did something wrong or know how to fix it.

First step: Turn off your autocorrect.

2nd: I only put grease in my Reg, and gun oil on my o-ring hammer and bolt o-ring. SMALL amounts.

3rd: back the rear velocity adjuster out until it is flush.

4th: turn up your Reg until your shooting around 280. (Or whatever your field requires)

5th: Then use your rear velocity adjuster to "fine tune" to 280. (Really its just to move a FPS or 2..should ideally be sitting flush)


MOST IMPORTANT: WHAT PAINT WERE YOU SHOOTING?!?!

Crappy paint will give crappy results, period.

But you want to bore match your paint so it sits SNUG and has to be pushed or blown out of your Barrel. If it is not a match and the paint is oval or dimpled, the air will escape around it..so you won't get consistent shots no matter what you do. Try to think of it as you want a complete seal so you get the right amount of build up behind each ball. Hope that helps you out!

I have mine shooting 280 FLAT with old redemption paint, so these markers are very consistent out of the box.

Good advice above. To add a point, make sure you hold the pump handle forward completely each shot to get true velocity reads. My guess is your paint was too small for the barrel you were using and if the ball rolls a bit forward before shooting it can radically change velocity like you said.

And yeah, the first post was painful to try to read, definitely turn your autocorrect off lol.

Your using the stock Barrel right? .681 back only?

Do what he said above, get 10 of the graffiti balls and try rolling them through your Barrel back. If they do...you just found your problem.

Im so frustrated this was suppose be a simple gun to maintaince and play with I keep making it worst . It says to push the ps02 striker not to be on trigger at all right. I flushed it and adjusted the reg and still not fixed and it's leaking through the trigger.

You are making things worse in your frustration.

SLOW DOWN and pay attention to what is being said to you. Just because a marker is simple for some, it may not be for others. You are showing to be amongst the others. Lube everything like stated above and reset your marker's set-points. This should make it easier to make adjustments at the chrono.

Could you get back to us on what we said to do?
Likes steps?

1- did you do the ball to Barrel test? Results?

2- You have the manual? Put everything where it should be according to the pictures. Also the manual tells you where the reg should be set at for factory settings. Results?

3- breaking paint in a kp3 narrows it down to input pressure or just Crappy paint seeing how your controlling the speed of the bolt. Sounds like you have your regulator set WAY too high or you put it back in incorrectly. Take it apart and put it together as shown in the pictures. Results?


On a side note, you might have to start uploading pics, but again if you have the manual, just follow the pictures. Simple marker, it really is. Built like a spyder :p

OK guys well I made sure the bolt internals where good and turned down the velocity all the way and turned down the regulator all the way and did the two and half counter clockwise turns to make it back to factory setting but now it is leaking out the grip. I made a video if I cannot solve the issue tomorrow I will post it. this video. Thanks you all for the support.

Leaking out of the grip? Is the leak perhaps actually in the breach area. There is no part of the marker that would result in a leak from the grips area.

EDIT: Did you take the valve out? Take the valve retaining screw out and now it leaks after putting it back in?

turn your pressure back up a little. maybe there isn't enough pressure to seal the valve oring

that was the problem , I turned up the velocity and the leak went away. I have not had a chance to shoot paint through it yet, but it sound constant. which is a good sign.

When you say "velocity" do you actually mean the regulator pressure?

not the regulator pressure, I set that back to factory setting but the velocity adjustment on the back of the marker.

Oh ok, that's good man. I'm happy to hear that you got it up and running.
