Default VS2 hissing down the barrel(fairly new)

OK gys i retired my VS2 a few years ago after i couldn't get it to shoot right in a game. Now i have a game comming up. only play about once a year. And i'd like to finally use the vs2 i bought. I have stock everything besides barrel and a Q loader.

When i shoot a few rounds thru the marker works fine. But today i fired thru 50 rounds and near the end of the rounds the pressure was up around 300 and the round would fire, Valve would stick open causing a HISS. I pull back on the bolt and it stops. I think it may be due to the regulator pressure spike. any ideas? Is this a common problem with these?

Marker may have only around a case thru it because its never worked in a game for me.

its your valve. clean it, change the o-rings, maybe a new cup seal.

You could also lightly sand the cupseal if it's uneven. I've done this to save some cash and for a quick fix.

is there a break in period for the reg? I ran some oil thru the whole thing and then cleaned off the bolt and barrel. Running at 210 psi i didn't get any spikes, did have one recocking issue with the first two rounds but 100 rounds after that work flawlesly. ITs probably waiting for my next game to break again

300 psi shouldn't cause the valve to stick. are you using co2 or hpa?
