I've been working on this for a very long time and for the life of me I can't figure out why I can't get over 175 FPS. I've changed every O ring and lubed it with dow 55 completely. I just can't figure out what's going wrong, the regulator is a Bob Long 360. I have adjusted the LPR and the HPR several times and nothing, I have even gone to 85 PSI on the LPR and that didn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Any leaks? Is there orings on the bolt? Did you check your dwell? New battery?

Lpr doesn't project the ball. Turn down the lpr and up the main reg.

ahh timmies.... unreliability at its finest. on topic: sounds like an issue with the velocity adjuster directly. dont know a hell of alot about those beyond the unreliabilty, but my alpha blacks velocity adjuster is wierd and is hot or miss on its ability to adjust

I like loud, kicky poppets. I am the last of my people.

Have u checked the solenoid? I'm not an expert on poppets but I remember how older eclipse egos and eteks used to have burst and cause velocity issues

is your gauge working properly?

make sure your solenoid is working. see if you can find another friends solenoid that you can use


if not, send it to blast

Wut. Have you ever owned, or even shot a Timmy? There is no velocity adjuster. Just the regulators. And Bob Longs are extremely reliable. Stop going on threads and talking about things you know very little about.

This is a quote from Mike himself " Pound for Pound, the Alias is the BEST paintball gun on the market right now " and if I'm not mistaken that is a intimidator.
sorry 510waffles this wasn't directed towards you
