Having problems with my SL3 Reg

Ok so I picked up a brand new SL3 Eclipse reg and I know all new regs need a break in period but this is ridiculous! I've put atleast 2 cases through it and the chrono readings are everywhere! I'm talking +/- 20 fps. I'll do 3-4 shots and it will be fine then BOOM! -20. I took it apart and relubed it but doesn't seem to be wanting to work right. I'm having a hard time chronoing my gun in because it won't go to 285fps so I crank the pressure up and I'll get a few shots at a good reading then it'll shoot way up then way down. What is going on with this thing? Thanks!

It's medium grade paint that's about 3 weeks old but it was doing this with fresh paint as well. And yes I am boring the paint right. I'm shooting it out of a .684 which was the best match.

Is your dwell set to stock or has it been lowered?

Stock. Do you think it's just because I haven't put enough air through it yet?

Probably need to run some more paint through it. When I was breaking in my 11 I was getting some jumps in fps...not 20 but jumps. Put a couple more cases thru and see if that helps.

By empty some tanks I hope your talking about shooting paint, it's not good for a marker or any fire arm really to dry fire.

Ok good just making sure, I have a Violent SL3 on my 06 Dark but I haven't had it over a chrono yet it should be really consistent once broken in. I really like that it allows you to shoot deeper in to your tank and the self purging is a nice touch.
