Won't shoot over 270 FPS

I have a geo, with the newer bolt kit in.

Im almost sure it's because I have a LP Reg on my CP Tank.. it is shooting low.

Im adjusting the bottom of my regulator, in & out without much change.

How should I adjust my dwell to use this tank? Turn it up 2, Down 2. Ive shot timmy's/ego's my whole life haha, just wondering if yall could help.

Appreciate it

Not much you'll be able to do with dwell or anything else. The Geo clearly states it wants HP input on the manual. You can 'make it work' with a LP spring but the best bet is an HP tank/reg. Try to swap one at your local field, LP for HP.

The temp isn't making the difference, it's simply that you have the wrong pressure input to your gun.

i've got the LP spring in mine and it works very well, i get no shoot down and it extremely consistent. i only paid 16 bucks for one so its well worth it.

increasing your dwell is only going to lead to horrible efficiency from an already not so efficient marker. i strongly recommend the spring.

Buy the spring kit for the CP tank would be your best bet. Then you would have the high pressure required. I would go this route instead of trying the geo spring.

Im actualy suprised you got it to 270 i cant even get mine with mid pressure to go over 250 fps. Just purchase the lp spring or whats most likley smarter is ^ to get the cp conversion kit. thats what i did with my ga tank and works great now
