Question Blast from the past

New to here so feel free to push me in the right directions.

Was given a mongoose by a mate (Currently running an sp-8, 98 long very custom, a-5 customed, RAP4 Deagle RAM, TM-15)

Played with it last sunday, very nice marker apart from a few problems i've encountered that i would like some help on if possible:

1. It kicks like hell, screws are loosening all over the place.
2. The air usage is horrendous, i got 4x180 pots & a 220 hopper fom a 2.5k fill in a 68cu Hpa tank.
3. Seems to be breaking a few balls on the hammer.

Thanks in advance guys 'n' gals.

Meant to say:

Marker running at 275fps stable, paintballs being used by all players, very few breaks by anyone. Ran 300 rounds through my sp-8 at 12bps with no breaks whatsoever.

Sounds like the spring balances are off. The previous user may have made some improper spring swaps using a spyder-compatible spring kit. If you bought another spyder spring kit (~$9) you should be able to play around with the balances and find a combination of valve and hammer springs that work better.
