Low FPS on X-Valve

So, I was out this weekend and during a break, went to set up an x-valve that I just got on a trade. Is an older one,that actually says X-Valve in white.
if I try to get the FPS up to a decent speed, it starts venting out the back,

Where should I look fist?

You need a new Regulator Piston Assembly. That is the part that is leaking.

That kinda pisses me off.
2nd time in the last month I've done a trade, and gotten the short end of the stick.
I never send something out, telling people's in working condition, unless I know it is.
The shocker I traded an x7 for had screw damage, and wouldnt even fire.
And now this x-Valve needs repair as well.
From now on I won't ship first.

In my opinion, the X-Valves are a bit touchier than the classics. Unless you really need the RT, the classics are quite good.

Second, if a reg piston is leaking, wouldn't that mean that the gun would creep and shoot hot instead of shoot low?

Goat boy, I love your sig.
Reminds me of a kid I always see at our rec field.
Always talks as if he's this great paintballer, but you NEVER see him getting close enough to get hit by even a long all.

Are you using the gold spring? Convert back to a lvl 7, It shouldn't vent if you do.

I'll check which spring it is. I do believe I stuck a red in.
Should of thought about that.
I know the velocity difference between the red and gold is pretty dramatic.

Not on a Mag AIR valve.

Looks like its fixed.
I took the back off, cleaned the o-rings, oiled them up, put it together, and it's not leaking.
I'll see what the fps are tomorrow at the field.
