g6r drop off

ok, ive had my g6r for over a year now and i havent had any issues till the last time i went out too play, the first ball of every stream or if i was snapping, the first ball will drop, and when i say drop i mean it come out of the barrel and hits the ground in 20-30 feet, but then every one after that is shooting just fine. and ive gone through and changed he rear seal on the ram and on the back cap, and even the 3 on the bolt(like i said i havent had issues with it so i have never needed too change the o-rings since i owned it) to try to eliminate the problem, i havent played with it yet but i was wanting too get other peoples advice if that wasnt it, oh and the dwell was stock, i increased that too 9 now. any other advice or am i just going too have too see if my thoughts fixed it?

What's your pressures?

See if what you have done fixed it before doing any more, and lower your dwell back to 6.

i would reset your board to stock settings then go from there..... if it still does it then i would try upping the abs until the problem is fixed.

Make sure your HPR pressure isn't creeping up - You do have a pressure tester right? It could be rising to your tank output pressure, requiring the first shot to bleed out the over pressurization to stabilize back to ~ normal levels, then creeping back up.

If it is creeping, then lube the piston o-ring and replace the schrader valve core.

I had a similar problem, and it was because there was a build up of gunk in my regs. That would be something to check if all else fails.

FSDO is almost always the result of the poppet. Lube the poppet o-ring with Dow 55. Set your dwell to 6 and get your pressures set correctly. Then shoot some paint. If you still have a little FSDO, replace the poppet o-ring as it's getting worn. If not, you're good to go and only need to relube per the instructions in the manual.

I'm referring to the poppit top. The G6R has a tendency to make an indention in them after a season or so.

If you check your pressures frequently, you can avoid the wear more easily.

I've got one at home that was almost flattened out over time because his pressures were so out of whack
