Man you are really throwing me off.
As far as I can tell you are not the OP (original poster) of this thread. So when I respond to either of you I try to address accordingly.
What spool are you putting o rings on? The F8 does not have a spool to my knowledge. Are you talking the poppet, the noid valve?
If you cant get it to velocity then its a ball barrel match issue, bad Chrono, messed up reg, or leaky gun, etc. I am really thinking its that bolt... its possibly dragging and causing an issue. Pull the pin and see if it will fall out of the gun.
Are your ball detents compressing all the way into the gun? Did anyone by chance superglue the detents springs to the eye covers? I saw this personally on another gun, and it caused bolt drag on a non stock bolt as the detent was not compressing all the way, and dragging against the bolt. The stock bolt has detent cutouts, but the aftermarket bolts do not.
I am really thinking its your bolt... its not a low blo in upside down is it?
Go to stock bolt (find one, buy one, borrow one) and check the eye springs. Also be 1000% sure you are not getting a small leak out of the hex head screws.
