T2 Occasional "Bloop" shot????

I seem to be getting a very low velocity shot anywhere from 7-10 times per full sportshot hopper on my T2, any ideas?

Paint and barrel match well, pump arm always forward, regulator is sweetspotted, marker is thoroughly cleaned.........

Is this while autotriggering, or shooting slow?

When's the last time you rebuilt/lubed your reg?

IT just does it in general, I rarely use autotrigger. I have never rebuilt the regulator and as far as lubed it, I put a couple of drops in the ASA after each day of play. I also tore the regulator down to the stiff spring and put a very small amount of that white grease on that spring. The grease that comes with an Empire Sniper that is!

I maintained the regulator per the video. Thankfully months ago, I ordered some oring kits so they were readily available in my gear bag. Orings looked great, replaced them anyway and the pin was perfectly straight. I guess the orings could fail even though they look absolutely fine.
Aired it up with no leaks and sounded good. I guess I will find out if my issue is resolved Saturday.

Has this always been with the same brand of paint?
Are you getting any rollouts whatsoever?

I went ahead and ran two sportshots worth of paint through the marker today with no "bloop shots" observed. I figured that was better than waiting until Saturday while testing it out during game time!
I guess the lesson here is, just because orings look perfectly fine, they may need replaced anyway!

Could be that they just needed some grease. You gotta lube your reg every now and then.

More than likely your barrel bore size is too big for your paint. You are getting rollouts every once in a while.

Rebuilding the regulator fixed it, or perhaps the lubing I gave the new rebuild.

When this issue surfaced there were no rollout problems although several weeks after rebuilding the reg, I bought a case of Graffiti that was all over the place in size. No relation to my bloop shot issue though as that bad case was weeks later.
