Finally had some time to tear into this marker and try to fix the velocity issue.

I tore it completely apart and cleaned everything and checked all o-rings. O-rings all looked ok.

Jwalker has a box of main springs (mine) get one from him if the above does not help.
If all else fails find jacob or jordan at the field, yup the kids they are becoming quite good at trouble shooting.
I got it up to velocity but reg is flush and IVG is about 5 turns in. That seems a lot to me. Maybe it is the main spring.

I used a .684 insert with the field's Evil paint.

I don't have a pressure checker for my reg and haven't taken the time to build one. May be something to do later this summer.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. With some fiddling I got it up to speed. Seems that it may still need a little fine tuning, but I can at least use it for now.
