    Have a question for any ev2 experts out there.
    Just had the gun sorted out as had issues with power going up and down. Had another regulator fitted and a general look at. Fired about 200 shots through and all good.

    Last night when shooting noticed it dropped on a few shots like it did before this is at 12 mtr. Took it out this morning and it was dropping down to I reckon 6ftlb at times. You could hear the sound drop it was that bad.:eek:o:eek:o:eek:o
    So thought fire 10shots of air one after the other and all of a sudden she sounded right. Then fired another 40 shots and spot on again and sounded like her old self. Gun still had 150bar at this point
    Any ideas or you had the same thing, what did you do to fix.
    Thanks in advance :lev:lev:lev

    Sounds like you may have overfilled it judging by how many shots you fired and there was still 150bar left in it. Make sure your gauge is not sticking on your charging equipment. Someone last week at a competition had a similar problem by putting 240bar in the rifle when gauge said 200. Neil.

    Couldn't have overfilled it Neil, they are only legally allowed to fill their bottles to 204 bar ;)

    200 bar fill as thats all that was in the charge bottle. Normally will get 90 shots out of a full recharge.

    Sounds like an overfill problem, seen the same happen on an S400, filled to 220!

    Yes you could be right and there had better be a few bottles on sight at the worlds .:mad::mad::):)
    When they fill to say 210 you only get about 12 charges before it goes below 190bar not to good.

    Not me but someone at the club did it, the power on the gun dropped to 10ft and took about another 100 shots to get it back to 11.35ft but he was lucky it didn't jam the reg completely.

    I never fill my S400 or EV2 beyond 190.
