very nice first gun, as for your performance issues i think that you might be right with the C:B being out of wack, but a chamber fan should help

ps: keep sis in future pics, lol :D

well maybe your meter is out? im not to sure tho so it might be worth re-checking, and yer possibly you C:B is out, also, when you use the meter... is the gauge involved in the accuracy of the measurement? cauz ive had a few broken guages before and it stuffed up 3 hours worth of tests :(

hope ya work it out.

oh can we get a comparison picture? perhaps your sis holding the gun :D
