I recently bought a A-5. and I have had a nitro duck 4500psi 68 ci tanks. Tonight I used it and I went though half the tank in about 250 shots!! and the problem is that every ball but the first 5 had just sprayed. I even cleaned it and it still broke. i was wondering if it was a air problem, because i switched to my remote line with CO2 and it worked great. Any one have this problem before, or have any idea what is happening?

What was your speed becuse sometimes if it hit's the ball to hard it will brake. What type of paint were you using also some paint sucks like no other. Try turning your air down low and see if it still brakes.

i have an A5 and i rn comp air to and you do use up alot more air because of the cyclone feed. About the paint breaking...the only paint ive found to work in my gun is PMI premium. ive shot cheaper paint and it breaks and ive also shot expensive paint like marbelizer and it still breaks so the only paint i reccomend is PMI premium

1st thing I would do is chrono your gun and make sure you arent shooting too fast. In my testing so far I havent had ANY A5 configuration shoot less than 312 balls per 1000 psi.
