New TiPX owner

Alright guys, I'm a new TiPx owner. Only had a pair for the last few weeks.

I've noticed some interesting discrepancies between efficiency's. One of the markers can do 20-21 balls per 12gram (last few shots having mild dropoff) but the other one can only do 12 rounds before experiencing significant dropoff.

I've yet to take them apart, and want to know what components to look for to improve air efficiency. Suggestions from experienced tinkerers?

There's not much to do other then spring kits and bolt from mrt. Can't use bolth together is doesn't work. And the bolt doesn't work with fsr so if u plan on using em it's a no no. And from what I researched spring kits increase chance of ball breakage.

Are they brand new??? Might just need a longer break in period.

Oh and forgot not mention not all 12g have exactly 12g. You will see difference between cartridges

Leave them stock.

The aftermarket springs are junk don't bother. The TechT bolt while getting more shots per 12 gram the +/- over the chrono suffers.

Use Leland or higher quality 12 grams. Never use crossmans etc.

Lube them both.

I'm using Lelands,

They are not new, and look like they've been around the block and well worn in.

I am planning on using first strikes with one of them.

I'll do a complete disassembly reassembly and make sure they are lubed and/or greased as soon as I figure out the proper way to do it.

The main air chamber has a small spool valve in it that rarely gets greased because it's only accessible via snap ring. When it gets dry it causes a bunch of weird issues so I recommend greasing it if you don't know when it was greased last time.

I've had my main 2 TPXs for about 5 years now and haven't even done that yet haha.
