My modded foamy bolt that I posted a pic of a page or two back was in response to my ball breaking issue.
I really want to do that to mine!

I need to adjust my dwell settings I'm guessing...I took my "ugly corn husker" ZR out yesterday and aired it up for the first time, put it over the chrono and without any adjustments was sitting in the 270-277 range. Unfortunately 1 out of every 6 or 8 balls it was chopping

We were starting in like 2 minutes so I just put it back and the box and was forced to play with my G6R for the day (terrible right lol)

I can tell you I really liked the way it felt despite chopping the paint it was really smooth feeling and surprisingly accurate with the stock barrel.

You guys were right about picking up the older blue crossfire reg, super cheap and felt very consistent!

i love my blue crossy reg it is the best lp reg on the market.

is it chopping or is it barrel breaks they are 2 way different things. if it is a chop things to check are.
pressures - make sure your hpr is 200 to 220 range depending on your marker
lpr put it at full cycle than 2 more notches on the adjustment
dwell- if it is cold out bump your dwell up 2 or so to help
make sure you are using plenty of lube your zr1 loves lube.. if it is cold i suggest to use something like lurker, slick honey or monkey poo.
check your battery make sure it is fresh. the battery can cause eyes to misread i had this problem and it annoyed the crap out of me.

Battery was a little low...Im in Florida so it was 70 and sunny yesterday (be jealous haha)

I cleaned and lubed it using some dow 33 (I am going to stay away from the Hater Sauce it comes with)

I don't have a pressure tester yet for this marker but Im going to order some parts to make one.

I'll keep you updated of course.

do you have any old regs and a gauge. if you do just pull the guts out of the reg and put a gauge in the macro line port and poof pressure tester that you can play with on it.. i did it with an ion reg for mine.. but there are many more comfy.. if you can find a gas through that looks good it would work also

Thank you so much p8ntballer68059. Just left the field and it's shooting better. Messed with the lpr a bit. I was shooting crappy old paint (5 months old), and new paint from last weekend (polar ice or somthing like that?) I couldn't get it to shoot that crap paint, it would chop 1 of every 5 balls or so. But when I shot the good paint (only had 3 pods of it), it chopped one ball out of three pods, so Idk. That's good enough of me. I ran out of paint so I couldn't mess with it anymore. But thank you, you helped me a lot.

One more thing. I got it shooting, but it has severe fsdo. Like the first shot doesn't come out the barrel, then the second shot is about 217 fps or so, then the third shot would be good. Bit if I list it sit for a min or so it would go back to that. Is there anything I can do to fix this without a chrono? I'm playing this sat and won't have time to mess with it then. Any help would be great, thanks

In cold weather bump your dwell and use a thinner lube. What lube did you use.
I use a magic mix of slick honey and a good paintball oil like gold cup 3 parts lube 1 part oil. Extra slick with good coating to make the orings last longer

The haterr board should flash your current setting than just add 2 when you adjust

also, the ZR1 or just the hater board does not like old batteries. you need to feed the gun fresh new batteries. the battery will effect a lot on the gun.

Ok, well I went to the field Wednesday and I thought I got it shooting right.... So I got to the field today for my tournament and went to chrono the gun, fired 3 shots (280, 279, 282 PERFECT), so excited. So about 20 min before games start I go to the chrono and shoot again and right when it kicks into ramping it turned into a blended. So my buddy let me borrow his gun and he messed with mine for about 20 min (,lpr, hpr, dwell) and couldnt figure out the problem.
Well I got home and had some air left so I started messing with it. I kid you not, I messed with the lpr for an hour and no luck (thought it could have been the eye delay so I checked that and it was on 2 so I put it on 4 than 5 and still was a blender even on semi firing slow)
I pretty much give up, this gun has been nothing but trouble for me ever since I got it. I LOVE how it shoots (when not chopping so I'm not giving up)
I'm not much of a gun tech but I know enough. It had a fresh battery in it (Duracell) so that wasn't it.
Anymore suggestions? I'm stumped.
Thanks for your help
