Question Why is my Viking using so much Nitrous

i got my tank filed today at 4000 psi and went out and played some with my brothers and i turned it on to 200 for operating power and it wasnt shooting very far so i turned it up to 250 and it was shooting alot better.... so we are playin and i reload my Egg 2 twice and after i look down i have gone through 1000 psi already..... is this normal or is somethin on my low pressure not set up right? cause i thought the vikings were supposed to be very efficent and this seems to be useing alot of gas.....

1. Please read the rules and learn where to properly post.
2. You must get the dwell and operating pressure in sinc to get the best effiency.

Vikings are the most efficient gun made. Think before you post.

That made me laugh, just a little.

What noids do you have? Do you have a tool kit? If you do not have a tool kit do not adjust the LPR pressure. Is your Viking lubed? I don't have enough information to help you.

Also, the people who are good with Vikings are the ones who go to the AKA forum.

What year is your Viking?

You are supposed to put 2-3 drops of oil in the ASA both before and after you play. Once the oil is in the ASA you are supposed to fire 100 times or so. It is also recommended that you put oil behind your hammer.

Then you most likely have MAC noids if they are stock. What is your dwell set at? Average dwell for MAC noids is around 14. Put oil into your macroline and air up then.

I heard 100 on the Nation by someone reliable. If it was a typo, oh well, dry firing is fun and shouldn't take you that long anyway

If you use nitrous on a paintball marker, that might explain it.

Its N2, or nitro, and chances are your field doesn't fill with nitrogen.

what size tank were you using? an egg and 2 pods is about 500 balls, and if you do that 3 times you will have shot 1500 balls and have 1000 psi left. that means if you want to run the tank down to the guns operating pressure, you could get about 1800 shots off a 4000 psi fill. that is INCREDIBLE air effeciency, why are you complaining
