Omen, Low Velocity

I'm having a bit of trouble with my omen.

Basically, I cannot get the velocity over 210 FPS.

I Turn the input pressure all the way down, and the recock in all the way in and then 1/8th a turn out.

From there, I slowly adjust my regulator 1 ball at a time trying to get the velocity right.

It winds up maxing out at about 200 FPS.

What is wrong with my Omen!

Thanks

brainy883 helped look for balloons
if so screw the ring in some.( I know it sounds crazy but its in the manual.) you have the pressure WAY to high and for some reason it's giving you low velocity. Page 20 in the manual "Low velocity Increase regulator output pressure. (See page #9).
Reg pressure that is way too high (600psi or more) can
also lead to low velocity."

You obviously cant read.

I clearly stated that I turn the input pressure all the way down.

Anything else that could be causing this?

Don't expect to get help with this kind of attitude.

Sorry about that.

Anyway, does anyone know what might be causing my low velocity?

broke hammer pin.

If you have air leaking from barrel could be the cup seal or valve.

If hammer pin is broke (not uncommon in OMENS) it won't strike the cupseal out as far leading to a shorter open valve time and lower velocity. This would also make the recock have to be set higher to work.

Also could be back block binding. Does it recock fine?

The back-block doesn't jam, it recocks fine.

Its actually not that bad to play with, but its frustrating having to lob balls across the feild sometimes.

Ill check the hammer pin.

Thanks!

If it is a broken hammer, all you'd have to do is call up evil and they'll send you a replacement.

If you have an adjustable tanks and have the output on it set to 300 PSI then that could do it as well.
