LP Spring kits for Rainmaker?

Has anybody made a spring kit for the Rainmaker or tried to respring the valve for increased gas flow/ lower shooting pressures.

Hardwarz on th Rainmaker forum at BEOG (http://www.beog.org) sells tapered valve springs.

You can cut 2 coils off a cocker hammer spring and that will work great. but dont use a cocker valve spring as they are way too long and cutting a coil would place it off center

Thanks again Kevin. I had another question for you since you are an expert on Rainmakers. I had placed an order with the BEOG super store, is this you, and on a whim at the last moment I bought a Micro Rock. Will the RM internels run at a lower psi than the stock pressure. I've completed the striker guide pin modification and it turned out quite well. As a matter of fact the carrier/striker assembly an move freely in the body without any resistance. If I turn the body vetical the assembly can move just under it's own weight. I'm looking to reduce recoil, increase gas efficiency and better paint handling for thin shelled paint.

Procedure

I have a microlathe so it gets simple after that. Actually microlathes arent that much anymore and it's one of the best toys I've ever bought.
