Bought a Geo 2.1 dwell was set at 13.5

So I bought a Geo 2.1 in June used and Ive been using it every sunday for practice since then and I just recently looked through some of the preset setting the previous owner had the dwell set at 13.5!! That seems a little to high for me so should I slowly walk the dwell down to around a 9ish or what? It has no problems and shoots greats. I lube it, clean, and change o-rings if needed. I get around 6 pods and hopper out of my 68/4500 Id like to see more then that sense im a back player but it is a geo. I might need a 3 to get a 2 or more pods?

Imo if you've been using it that long and been all.good leave it alone. Maybe drop it to 12.5. Dropping it to nine will not net you even 1 full pod more. but it will make the marker more picky and unrealiable.

The stock dwell on the GEO2 was 12.5. On very cold days I would up my dwell to 14.5 if shooting really brittle paint. While you can dwell tune as outlined in the various posts in the forum, I found too low a dwell effected my shot to shot consistency. You can underbore to bring up the fps and improve consistency but there are a variety of factors that can effect dwell tuning that are out of your control (weather, paint quality).

There is a very obvious difference shooting the gun at 12.5 versus 10.5 in kick and sound signature. Well broken in guns might be able to handle that setting but every gun is a bit different. The only times I ever had a problem with my GEO2 was when I deviated from the default settings. The Geo2 will always shoot and have the efficiency of a GEO2. If you want improvements in either area there's always the GEO3. That being said I had my GEO2 for a while and loved it.

6 pods and hopper on a 68/45 seems really low.... regardless of the dwell you are using, cuz the 13.5 is pretty good IMO
