Unhappy STILL having problems with my VS3

This weekend was my second trial period with my VS3, and to say the least, it seems to be getting worse. Last weekend I had a lot of problems with de-cocking, I would have to manually pull the striker back into place after a series of about 15 bps, the marker just couldn't seem to keep up with me. To be honest, I am not that fast a shot yet. This thing is supposed to be able to keep up with me.

The problems this weekend were similar in the fact that even though it did happen less, I still had problems with de-cocking. I thought I had fixed the problem by turning the regulator up to around 280, this didn't seem to fix it too well. Saturday I had a different problem, I was in the middle of a scrimmage when it sounded like I lost an o-ring. Suddenly the marker seemed to just start throwing air out the barrel. This continued until the HP tank was emptied and the reg hit under 50-100 psi. Trying to figure out the problem I re-filled the tank, aired up the marker, and walla, its working like nothing had ever happened. It finished out the day without that problem again. This just blew me away. Anyway, I have put the equivelant of about 5 cases through this marker, I oiled it extremely well, and kept my reg turned up to about 280-300 psi.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks.

Hankey723, I have thought about upgrading, only problem with that is the Spyder Cup is getting near. My team is registered in the regional in Cali this June, and I dont want to have to break in new parts, ie the reg. This will be my last resort. And I know there arent a lot of aftermarket regs for the VS3, so which one in your opinion is the better aftermarket reg?

What other regs are better? This is a question for everyone.

Thanks.

I wouldn't up it just yet. Use some silicone oil on the bolt o-ring and on the detent slots of the bolt. Just a lil dab on your finger then rub it on both areas. The jackhammering is because this is a STBB. Once you get to 500psi or so, you're screwed, it's just gonna jackhammer because there isn't enough pressure to return the striker. KEEP THE TANK FILLED AT ALL TIMES! Or if you have one of those cheap 400 shot tanks, you should have gotten a 68/4500 at least -

I did, I bought a 68/4500 the same time I bought the marker. And I have never let it get below 2000 psi. The only thing I havent tried is the detent slots. I will give that a try.

Thanks Dragon.

Use silicone oil. I teched a VS3 a short while ago that was pretty screwed. Once I got it going there was a recocking prob. Put the oil on the slots and it ripped no prob. I put it on the detents too. Just rub some on with your finger -

Trim your detents down a little...or mill the slots in the bolt larger. I have done both...both work fine.
