I am seeing insane spikes with my tipx and co2.
The first couple of shots look a bit like this.
New cartridge:
215
315
319
254
240

What's up with that?
I just took everything apart and relubed it.
No change.

Are you running c02, what's was the temperature at when you were shooting it.  I was playing a few years back in the winter around -10 Celsius and my 98 was shooting like that., tried my sons hpa tank and it went away.  I'm not familiar with the TPX, maybe it comes standard with a reg which helps keep the c02 from liquifying when it's cold.  I had to change the o-ring on the bolt because I had frozen it from firing liquid c02 through it when it was freezing up.

Any way that you could be tipping it in a manner before firing it that would allow liquid to enter the valve?

No. If anything it's pointing a bit down, over the chrono.
