is the Regulator on the Electra 06 really not a regulator? I went to Chrono my Marker and the FPS was jumping all over the place, or did I get a defective regulator.

It is indeed a reg. The reg needs some breaking in before more consistant velocitys. Plus, it's only a stock Spyder reg. Its good enough for me though.

btw, what psi are you running at? Just wondering...

between 650 and 750 do I need to go lower or higher

The regulator is made only to go as low as 500 and as high as 800. I would say lower it to 500, but its more personal preference.

The manual (http://www.spyder.tv/section/support/manuals/electra_eye.pdf) says to run it at least at 550psi. If you need to adjust the FPS lower than what it is now, then turn it down, just not below 500psi (per the manual). If you need to raise the FPS I would not go higher than 800psi-850psi. That is what the other stock Spyders run at.

how much breaking in does it take I have run 3000 balls through the gun and the FPS jumps between 169 and 180. that is a big jump my Xtra with out a regulator only jumps between 170 and 175.
