New enmey user bad issues ADVICE?

I purchased a (allegedly) brand new NME from an eBay seller. I lubed it, put in a new (clean) CP barrel, brand new (gauged, clean, dry, round) paint... also a brand new ninja UL... and it’s HORRIBLY shanking every single ball. Like, full loopdeloops.

I’ve shot these before and had minor shot drop during rapid fire. But nothing this bad. I put the paint in a different marker and had no problems...

So! Assuming it IS new: any ideas what this could be?

Assuming it’s not: what could cause this? I could totally replace all o rings. But it’s shooting so poorly, I am having trouble believing it’s old rings... is this a typical symptom of bad rings?

Totally bummed 😕 advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the reply! Yes, the detents are good.

I got a hold of a GoG tech and they said there’s virtually nothing mechanical that could cause this. So, I’ve got to assume it was a combination of humidity and one or two bad apples in the paint. I was careful to make sure everything was clean and dry. But, perhaps I wasn’t thorough enough in my check. I haven’t really tried to test fire it again (suburb life, no space!). I just cleaned the hell out of everything from the hopper-down and am hoping that’ll do it.
