DM9 not shooting consistent bps

I just picked a DM9 up today. And I was playing with it, at first it wouldn't shoot over like 8bps. I put a brand new duracell battery in it, then I made sure the bps settings were 12bps and PSP. It shot fine then at the chrono station. So I go out on the field, and go to lane and it shot like 8bps again. I run to a bunker, slide, get up, start shooting and it is shooting fast again. Kept doing this throughout the day on and off. Any clue of what the cause might have been? I am dry firing it fine right now..

I have a tournament next weekend and would like to make sure I do not have this problem again though. If it starts acting up again next weekend, any recommendations on what might be the cause?

does it shoot 12 bps when the eyes are off? if so it means your eyes are dirty and it needs to be cleaned or lined up properly.

if it shoots the same bps regardless of the eyes, then raise your lpr 1/4 to 1/2 of a turn.

Went to clean the eyes, took my eye pipe out and noticed the eye pipe is cracked on top at the rear of it. Could that cause any problems to where I should replace it? seems like it should still sit fine in the breech and not affect anything

Ry ry is right.

It'll work fine with the eye pipe still crack. Just make sure it's clean so nothing would fool the eye's and seeing it as a broken ball or w/e.

Yup make sure the eye pipe and the eyes are clean. Make sure your eyes on ROF and eyes off ROF are both set properly. Then make sure your regs are tuned properly. A low LPR will cause all kinds of weird issues.

dye guns dont have a ROF change with eyes on or off.
the ROF is the same for both.
the only way you get changes in ROF is if there is an eye default (bad eyes, bad eyepipe, dirty eyes, etc), then the board defaults it down to a lower BPS.

Yes^^^ clean your eyes and eye pipe throughly and make sure it's plugged in properly. Also a low battery can cause the eyes to not get proper voltage but that's a rare occurance that gun still shoots if the battery is low enough to cause an eye malfunction.

It just depends on the board you have. If you have the crappy stock board, then yes you're right. There is no change......which is totally stupid and should have been changed ages ago. I suspected it may have had an updated board due to it's age. Seems it does not.

I suspect it's a reg issue. Maybe they're not set properly, maybe they're running a big too dry. It could even be as simple as the air supply being blocked by the ASA knob.

Almost 90 percent of any dm owner doesn't upgrade the board there is no reason to. they all do the same thing

Not anymore with current ROF limits and eye pipes I suppose. Back in the day 15 bps without eyes meant a lot of broken paint in your gun. Nobody really plays like that anymore so it's a none issue.

Anyway none of this will help the current situation.
