newbie....spyder mr1 inconsistant velocity

Hello everyone. I am a new member here as my buddy got me into playing this sport recently. I picked up a very good condition Spyder MR1 stock paintball marker off of ebay and everything seemed to be working fine when I tested it. When I got to the field on Sat and dialed in at the crono, I noticed very inconsistant readings on the velocity of my gun. Prior to taking the gun to the field, I disassembled and lubricated all of the o-rings to assure there was no problems. The varrying speeds were anywhere from 280 all the way down to 230. This mainly occured when I would try to rapid fire. When I gave myself time in between shots, the velocity was fairly consistant. What would cause my marker to act like this?

I tried swapping out nitro tanks with my buddy to rule out the regulator but it did the same thing. It also did the same with with and without the remote coil and hooked directly up to the nitro tanks.

Any insight to this would really be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Brian

I have a MR1 and I've found that if you shoot rapid, it becomes inconsistent, but I've never had it that much. Usually I've had 290 to 265-270. It's only a beginner marker so it's not going to have perfect consistency like a high-end marker, but try and get it checked out by your local field owners.

Sounds like the reg's output pressure isn't recharging fast enough. Do you know the output pressure of the tanks?

my tank is a 3000 psi Empire Pure Energy 62 ci tank with standard 800 psi output pressure regulator. The other tank I tried was my buddys 3000 psi 62 ci Gorilla tank with a myth valve which is also 800 psi output. both had the same things happening.

Without knowing much more about the marker, I would guess that the marker just requires a higher operating pressure than the tanks have been able to output, so as the air gets dispelled (by you firing quickly), the gas isn't getting replaced fast enough. Have you tried an anti-siphoned CO2 tank? CO2 is naturally less consistent, but also higher pressure.

Beyond that, I would suggest checking in at the Spyder forum as spaz suggested.

When you shoot rapid shoot it takes a lot of pressure and tends to make the guns velocity decrease, but you should look at the spyder threads to find a accurate problem solver.

Sounds like either:

A) The regulator (if it has one) needs some Oring maintenance or just maintenance in general.

or

B) The Springs in the lower tube need replacement because either the valve spring or striker/mainspring are too soft and are causing issues with either the striker not hitting the valve hard enough at times or the valve not closing quick enough at times.


A quality tight bore barrel could help, too.

When you say you "lubed" your gun, did you use lube or gun oil?

ok, I probably should have said oiled the o-rings. Here is the product that I got from the paint ball store in town. http://goldcuppaintball.com/Items/1o...0Oil%20-%201oz

@yelosno -

to my knowledge, the MR1 does not have any kind of regulator on it, just the one that is on the air bottle. As for the springs, which would you recommend I replace first? The lower bolt spring or the valve spring?

it's a spyder, it's not going to have the greatest consistency, it shouldn't be too much of a problem though.

I know many people with spyders and they have no consistency problems.
