Clone gt dropoff then leaking issue.

Hey guys, i recently aquired an aqua camo clone gt (serial GT 1316) in a trade. When i got it, it shot great when i took it out to the chrono for 500 shots to tune it. Then i went to play today and the horror story started. I had massive dropoff throigh the day (gun set at 290 then would slowly decrease to nothing throughout the game) so i thought it was reg creep so i did all the troubleshooting i could find (manual and forums, replaced and relubed oring etc). Then went back to the chrono and had fps fluctuation like crazy (about 330, 270, 300, 320, 260) so i did all the troubleshooting through that and tevuilt the drivetrain replacing any origns that the manual and any forum i could find suggested. Then all of a sudden my clone started leaking through the gripframe. So i checked the drive train and everything was ok, then checked the subplates and everything was fine. Now it still has fps fluctuation and still leaks.

My settings
Dwell:12
Abs: off

I have tried dwell 11 to 14 and abs 1 to 10 and bothing works.

This is also not my first clone. My red and teal previous to this worked wonders so im truely stumped on this one. I feel as though i may just have to sen it in.

Now heres a personal problem. I go to a military school and cant hae my ger with me during the week and can only get home on some weekends. So any fixes will have to wait until then.

Should i just send it in? Im located in south carolina so where would the best place be?

Thanks for any help!

It's possible your valve o-rings are not sealing consistently. Replace the 3 valve o-rings, as well as the 2 powertube o-rings and see if the problem persists...new battery of course too. If it does persist, then you may want to consider sending it in.

You can email customerservice@aggressivesports.net to arrange for service.

Sure you can certainly reference it, or put a copy/paste of your original post as well.

im interested to see what your tank is up to itself. regulator tanks need to get maintained, it may be sticking or giving you the issues. whats the output pressure?

What lube are you using? Clean the whole valve off completely and put some oil on the orings. If it works after that then it may be the lube. The pb oil won't last long, but you can tell if you need the reformulated lube.

You should pressure test and make sure your around 100 psi.

I sent mine in recently for the same issue and was told it was o-rings and lube on my drivetrain but I went to play last week and still had issues.
Today while searching for more info I found that the o-ring on the black screw on the inside of the reg body was shredded, so i replaced it with one similar, (didnt have the exact size) and it seemed to help, gonna test it again next time I get air.
Hopefully it helps because I wasn't able to play a full game without it dropping off.
