Just to see how high my A-5 w/flatline would go we had it chrono up to 325.  Could have gone higher but the balls never made it out of the barrel so we didn't try.  Not sure why there seems to be so many that can't get theirs up that high as this was even in cold weather with CO2.

not a good idea...

Anyways, could b co2 problem, could be drive spring, could be your internals are catching on something...  Take it apart and check it all out, make sure you clean and oil it, and try again.  If that doesn't work, I'd say get a new drive spring or a kit, and if that doesn't, then co2 is the problem.

Or perhaps someone that likes to have a good time and doesn't need to walk around a paintball field sporting a high priced marker that mommy and daddy bought.

I wouldn't take an ion over a custom pro except to sell the ion and buy an upped cpro.

AND the reason you would be on a Tippmann forum.  Since you are implying that you hate Tippmanns.  Interesting.

Didn't anyone notice the smiley...he was kidding!!!

no one gets sarcasm anymore, its a shame.
