RT problem....

Just got an RT valve and installed it, and i'm having horrible drop off after the first 3 shots in a string. What should i do to fix it?

umm 850 psi, i got a preset tank and no regulator (besides the valve...drr.) on the gun. and i think i neglected to mention, its not like somewhat weaker drop off...its like fall out of the barrel no air in the tank dropoff.

what is the velocity set on the first shot? Is it using a level 10? If so you may consider a shorter bolt spring, and a higher velocity or vice versa depending where you are currently at. Other than that it sounds like an airflow problem, I would clean out the regulator, and the on off, maybe replace the seals.

unforunatly i dont have a chrono at availible, I know someone who has one, maybe he'll let me borrow his. I ran some AGD oil threw the system though, i figured if it might be the seals that wouldnt hurt...

turn in the regulator all the way. (velocity all the way up) see if the drop off still seems to happen.
