Sure enough, my manual says the standard range is 750-850. Mine must be on the lower side, for (non-)issues mentioned above.

Any advantage to use an adjustable bottle reg ie: old Air America reg to boost pressure above 800psi?

Still cant shoot over 240 w/ 4 different types of paint and 4 different tanks ranging from 500 psi to 850 psi output. First strikes can shoot at 260fps. My marker is farting like a badly springed cocker and is the loudest pump I have ever used. There are a bunch of blemishes on the internals so im gonna try polishing and possibly sand down the small bumps.

Polish if you want, but I doubt that's the problem.
Sounds like you need re-springing more than anything.

I think he's having trouble maintaining pressure in the valve actually. Could be wrong though

I tried changing the powertube valve spring but it doesn't reall help at all. I don't have any springs that are the same lenth as the stock hammer main spring though. Ordered a complete nelson spring kit.

Its great that this marker only cost me $130 but all the extra crap is starting to add up. $30 fancy mock silencer tip, $22 extra mag, $40 some first strike rounds, $40 crazy red dot site, and now $10 for a spring kit. After spending $272 I hope I can get this marker to work already.

Ya know the cup seal really isn't that wide faced. Maybe it's not enough surface area to seal.

The power tube is also rather small ID. Just by looking at it I can tell you it's low 180's ballpark

Seems like you may be able to use longer screws w/the mags and have a washer or something to use as a spacer so there's enough room to clear the magwell.

Granted, I don't have one yet so I could be completely wrong about the mags.
