I'm having a problem with my 2010 G6R. I took it to play last week, and couldn't get it to fire. An experienced player at the field looked at it with me, and thought my output pressure on my regulator was too low.
Brought the marker home, changed the output pressure on my regulator to 550 psi from 450 psi. Took it back today to test fire it, and it worked great, except I couldn't get it to chrono over 180 fps. Is this normal for an intimidator?
Here's what I'm using w/ settings:
Ninja 50/4500 tank
Ninja Pro Reg w 1 shim 550psi
2010 G6R with Tadao Odoshi board
DB = 10
Dw = 6
Delay(loader)= 2
Semi auto at 13 bps
Delay(bolt) = 14ms
My LPR is set to right around 80.
Any help or tips are greatly appreciated.

change your battery. use a brand name. if you just put a "new battery" in there, try one from a sealed pack.

you shouldn't have to change your tank to make it shoot. it should be SLP anyways, which is 300psi... 550 you risk blowing the internal o rings... bob longs are finicky. i'm surprised you didn't blow a seal already.

I believe it was a relatively new battery, had only used it once before, and I always use Duracell batteries. I'll give it a try though, thanks.

Lower your LPR to 70-75 and set your HPR to 180. That should put you at around 300 FPS. If it does not, then it's time to replace/lube the ram orings.

What lube are you using on the ram? It should be dow55 for best results.
Also, make sure that the rear cap oring is seated properly, and it not pinched. That will cause low FPS issues.

Thanks. I'll try that. I'm using dow55, and just before my problem I took the marker apart and checked all the o rings and lubed them, put it back together and it was shooting fine.. Knew about the issue with the rear cap, so I'm very careful with that.
