odd co2 on phantom question/observation

Hey guys. So the other day I was at the field. I always run direct co2 on the the phantom. Now this is the wierd thing. The first 5 shots or so were like 2+/-. After those shots it went to somewhat near 10 +/-.
I was using the same paint. I do have polished internals. Could it be that the co2 got "cold" in the gun after those few shots? I don't know whats up. Im just wondering why it was doing this. I wonder what i could do with hpa...

It could be that the pressure dropped enough to have an effect on the valve operation. Or it could just be that you got lucky on the paint consistency on those first 5 shots.

I'd suspect a tad bit of "shoot down" since it wasn't that warm (yes I know shoot down with a pump) your best bet would be to try it with a HPA tank and see if you can mimic the results.

It wasn't really that cold, but your tank definitely chilled and lowered the internal pressure after those few shots.
Add an anti siphon plus an expansion system, or a reg (Staib). Or switch to hpa. Cooler temps will shrink the balls too.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
