Best way to tune your GSL in you opinion?

I've seen a couple of tuning vids and guides here on pbnation but except dwell tuning what other ways is there?

Im looking to get the most smooth and quiet shoot as everybody else ofc

Or if one way is making the gun smoother and the other is making it quieter either way share your ways

There is a post somewhere in here in which Jack Wood says that Dwell tunung doesn't work the same as 3.1's and earlier models.

Yeah he said it doesnt impact efficiency.

I wouldn't even mess with it. It works awesome stock. Efficiency is great, shot quality is there, and it works.

You risk reliability for minimal or no positive effects.

Once you said that I dug a bit deeper. I had forgot he said that.

So there is no good way of actually making it smoother och quieter? Which is what i'am looking for, efficiency is no problem of mine.

SFR all the way down will make it smoother.

Look, not to be rude i anyway but im not a beginner. Turning the sfr down is not tuning the gun. I'm wondering if there is any other way or the best way to tune the gun for getting the quiet and smooth shoot.

Other than the SFR there is nothing to tune. You set the HPR pressure to chrono and then go play. This marker doesn't have an LPR and the dwell is doesn't matter because it's mechanically independent.

I think the point is that it doesnt require advanced tuning. The design is meant to be easy. Im sure you could turn the dwell up to slow it down further.

All jack is stating in that conversation image is that the efficiency is not effected by tuning the dwell like it has been in previous geo's. That is not to say that speeding the bolt up or slowing the bolt down with the dwell and sfr doesn't adjust the smoothness of the shot.

Hi All, I have the GSL vyper

I set te sfr all the way down with my dwell in 22, and I experienced the bolt not moving at all or doing it really slow with no force enough to shot.

Reset the dwell back to stock...jack said dwell tuning the gsl is basically pointless. I have mine at stock dwell and sfr mid/closed and the marker shoots like a dream.
