    Posted: 13 February 2005 at 10:49pm
Ok guys, I have a 98 Custom w/ Ebolt, LPK, Bob Long Torpedo, and a Palmer Rock LPR. How many shots should I be getting of a 68/4500 Hp? Right now I'm getting about 500 if that so I have to refill after every, or almost every game, especially during tournaments. Anyone know if this is normal or if I should be getting more?

The only thing I could think of would be the way the regs are set, but I dont have a guage so there no way of telling the pressures.

Lube your gun and change all the O-rings.  My 98custom is only doing that but im using a 20oz.  Before you buy new O-ring ask you local pro-shop or tippmann.

Yeah are you sure you have a 4500 psi tank. You should get about 1000 shots with a 68ci 4500psi. Id suggest filling ur tank... and monitering it with out using it. See if psi drops. if it does come back to us ;) Also make sure that you have a 4500psi tank and not 3000

No offense but I think I've been in paintball long enough and have the capability of knowing what size tank I purchased. It is a 68/4500.

You seriously need to go to a proshop to see what the heck is wrong with your tank, that or send it back to the manufacture.

Put some oil into your tank adapter and cock your gun before you screw the tank in. before you put on your hopper and barrel, shoot a couple of times, this helps to oil the internals.

What about your dwell screw, you are suppose to turn it all the way down (counter clockwise I think) then up one click and then turn your regulator that came with the ebolt all the way up.

lol no offense to you but theres alot of stupid people out there and just making sure your not one of them. And hey.. there is obviously something wrong with ur gun or tank if your only getting 500 shots....check the gauge... mine crossfire gauge was giving me wrong reading... turned out a full fill with the gauge was only filled about 3200 psi... a new gauge got that fixed quickly.
