Don't over clean your guns. Depending on the lube you use, your gun can go weeks without cleaning them.

Also, what type of paint do you use. Paint is probably one of the most important things for a gun to shoot straight. Bore sizing and quality of paint play a huge regard in shooting straight. Don't expect to shoot perfect if your field uses cheap paint.

FPS wont change drastically on accuracy. I still recommend bore sizing, and better paint. Do you use stock barrels? do you have inserts, or different barrel back sizes?

Unless you addressed that issue first, I wouldn't question anything else. IMO

Springs and Bolts help with efficiency, "recoil", consistency...

accuracy is mostly determined by how good quality the paint is. Try shooting better paint. Barrels help, but only so much.

As apple said bore to paint match makes a big difference. Too loose and it decreases accuracy, efficiency and increases sound signature.

Make sure your barrel is clean too.

This.

The paint may cost a lot, but it's probably not good quality.

Whats been said is correct. Your barrel and paint quality affect accuracy the most. If you paint is nice and round, little seam and not to oily and it matches up well to your barrel's bore you will be getting the most accurate shot you can have.
