Tipx velocity swings

Anybody else seeing wide velocity swings with their tipx.
Mine seems to go anywhere form 250-320 and more.

hmm...seems like a lot. i'm not familiar with the tpx, but if the regulator is serviceable it might be time to clean and re-lube that. and as usual, less-than-ideal paint will have wide velocity swings. that may or may not apply to you.

They shouldn't sell a pistol if it can't maintain a decent average on the platform it's supposed go just, which is a co2 cartridge.
If I wanted to use HPA, I'd get something else.
Which I am going to do now.
The milsig M17 CQC

I'm thoroughly disappointed in the Tipx.

And I understand getting drop-off when the cartridge gets low.
But going from 250 to well over 300 is downright dangerous, and unacceptable.

There was a thread like this in the Sidearms section. I forget the answer to the problem though. PM AgentSmith he'd know the answer.

This makes me think it is a regulator issue. Since HPA is regulated at the bottle, it SHOULD deliver better consistency even with NO reg on the gun.

I saw something in the manual about a Regulator Pressure Relief Valve. If it is too tight, the gun will over-pressurize, probably giving some messed velocity swings.

I'm curious because a kinda want one

pressure relief valve only works if you get pressure spikes. hence the name "relief". it will vent pressure way above the pressure you set it on so it won't blow out orings or what ever it will break internally
