A5 velocity issues

ok whats the deal with this thing, obviously I'm not the only guy who's had this problem. I mean this marker is brand spanking new. I took it to play yesterday and I tried all freaking day with the help of the paintball tech to get this thing above 230 FPS. I'm pretty dissapointed, I shouldnt have to buy parts and accessories or put BB's behind the spring etc. to get this thing to shoot correctly. I'm just really frustrated right now. Has anyone found a fix? Man I'm about to sell this thing now

Are you using CO2 or HPA?

Posibly, the main thing to check if you tank reg is a High pressure output (~800 PSI) or a Low pressure (~200 PSI)

Best thing to do is try replacing the drive spring and see if that helps.

THe other option is to try the polishing mod below \/

Almost positive it is your springs, you need a stiffer spring, one of the problems with running hpa on tippmanns.
