I really do think it's just the reballs. I for sure am using the stock micromag barrel, and since this is a Gen2 micromag, it's most likely a large bore barrel. And I hear reballs are tiny. So they are probably bouncing around in the barrel, sticking to the sides. It's interesting because I will get a string of 3 or 4 balls that will be very consistent +- 3 fps, and then it goes down 20.

Nono the teflon tape is around the set screw in the piston, NOT the velocity adjuster, no point in putting it on the velocity adjuster :P Is there a lot of pressure on that piston set screw? Should I use blue loctite on it? The screw came off pretty easy, I assume the original loctite has long since up and dried out.

Yes there is a lot of pressure on that piston. That piston is also AGD's safety device in case of over pressurization.

Reballs are around a .670 diameter. Those stock barrels are closer to .690 That's definitely the problem.

Played with the micromag today... +3 degrees Celsius, sunny, snow all over the ground. Chronoed with some type of winter paint, bang on 283,282, 280, 283. It was awesome. Played the whole day with only one break in the barrel. This is the first marker I've used that worked so well. I think I've been converted to automags.

Few pics:

Congrats! Glad to see you got it up and running. Welcome to the wonderful world of automag greatness.
If you're using HPA on a fresh rebuild, you shouldn't have to touch that velocity adjuster until you've almost forgotten it's there.

That looks like a 12 oz in a pouch running with a remote.

Huh. The gold-ish valve confused me. That is a hefty tank to be on ones thigh.
