Etha Inconsistent FPS

I've had an issue in the last few months with very inconsistent FPS. I've gotten and installed the springless in. I played in a tournament on Sunday and had to use my etha as my main gun went down. When chronoing I was getting anywhere from 260 to 300+. I had stripped the gun down a few days ago and cleaned and relubed everything. Put in a brand new battery. I started the day with a 689 back and then went to a 685 back. Results on the FPS were the same. Any ideas?

Well I was gonna say to check the battery and and barrel bore but seems you already did that. Sure you were shooting quality paint? It could've had random odd sizes without you know. Check your dwell to make sure it's stock.

Dwell is stock and I was shooting Draxxus bronze. All my other teammates were shooting the same thing and getting +/- 7 on fps

It was good when I stripped it a few days ago but when I get home I'll take a look at it and see if there is something I missed.

We're your teammates using the same markers and barrels/bores?

Same barrel bore and same paint. Just don't think it was a paint issue is what I was saying.

What is your tank output? Also, when was the HRP last cleaned? If you're running a LP or SLP tank the output pressure isn't high enough to recharge the marker properly. Same thing with the HPR, especially if it's overgreased and you are playing in cold temps.

The HPR was cleaned a few days ago. I went light on the grease. I have a high pressure tank. It was cold but again I didn't have it over greased. Italy have just been cold but I talked with a few other guys that had Etha's out there but they were not having the issue.

For all we know you could have a bad batch of the DXS Bronze you were shooting. Other factors could be differences in your spring or amounts of lube. I would try again and see if you have the same problems.

Okay tried it again today after taking everything apart and wiping it down. Made sure to go light on the grease in everything. Shot some paint and it is still jumping 25-35. Was using dxs field paint.

Interesting. I think we'll have to wait for Jack Wood to chime in.
