Can you confirm that your eyes function properly?

The LPR and HPR are both a tiny bit high...

What are your Dwell and other settings? Stock?

I’d guess there is a slight leak somewhere that’s causing the pressures to be higher.

Are you using the stock HPR Regulator?

Could possibly be a bad LPR Valve Core...

CP HPR and stock lpr, no leaks detected, just breaks paint like no ones business. Usually in breach and into feedneck to the point in just pours out the eye plates and barrel. But only when shooting fast. Would a air leak cause that???

What loader are you using? And what force settings? What is the bore size of the paint?

Also, is there any sort of board setting for “bolt delay” or something like that? To give the paint time to settle in the breech.

If the paint is really small, the next ball in the stack could be “clipped” by the bolt, which cracks the shell. Then, when the cracked ball fires, it explodes when the bolt hits it.

This problem is common on a lot of older guns that have larger breech sizes for larger paint bore sizes that are less common today.

Your pressures aren't *that* high. Quests run at pretty high pressures due to the smaller chamber volume.

Increase your eye delay setting, to start. Additionally, what's your dwell set to?

I’ve used 4 different loaders, valken, virtue, rotor and go sports, I have a loader delay on board, set at 8ms.

Change all bolt and bolt guide orings and report back. While 8ms ball delay is shorter than I prefer, that shouldn't be causing your issue. 14ms dwell is fine, as well.

Do you have another marker that you can put that same paint through in order to rule out the paint? At this point, you need start eliminating variables.

With that said, when you break a bunch of paint, do you completely clean the breech, detents (how are they?) and bolt?
