I recently fitted a regulator service kit to my EV2 Mk4 (my first regged gun) and I have noticed that the first shot always reads low on my combro (10.35 ftlbs). All the subsequent shots are consistently around 11.7 ftlbs. I did actually set the power level a little lower but I am guessing that now the barrel has 'leaded up' after cleaning it could explain the slight increase. I have noticed at HFT comps that shooters with regulated airguns fire off a couple of shots before starting the comp proper. My question is, do all regulated guns have low power outputs for the first shot or two before they settle down? Nev.
