Empire Mini GS velocity concerns

I have had my mini gs for a while now, and the velocity adjuster doesn't seem to be doing much. It is currently shooting 250ish. It isn't a huge deal l, but a little faster would be nice. If anyone has any ideas on what to do, let me know. Thanks.

Pull the poppet out wipe it down relube it. Sometimes they are a little dry from the factory. Also if your paint is very small it can be a issue.

I take the poppet out after every day of play and lube it. The only why for me to really adjust the velocity is through the asa. The velocity cap doesn't seem to do much at all.

If you look at the various tuning guides around here, they suggest having the back cap out a certain amount (mine is 1.5-1.25 turns out) and to adjust velocity via the ASA/reg so you're kinda doing it right. If you are having to exceed 200 psi (per the ASA gauge) in order to get up to velocity then something is wrong.

Having the same Issue Ive had my Mini GS for about a month or 2 just noticed the issue I cant seem to get her any higher than 260s. Like you said I don't want to go over the 200 on the ASA cause of how quiet the marker is shooting. Did the O ring on popet make a diff?

The poppet o ring replacement did nothing, if anything. It isn't the biggest deal, but it would help to shoot further in some situations. If anyone has a fix to this problem let me/ us know. Used it today, still was shooting 260. I don't know what else would be causing it.

I have my setting at 6.5 dwell... back cap was at 1.5.. and psi at 200.. can only shot around the low to mid 260s.. have never been able to shot it over.. even with all stock parts.. running stock everything and settings at 1.5bc/200psi/8dwell.. lubed and fresh battery.. can only shot 260's... what the ****.. this has been the worst experinence ever!! Im truely starting to HATE this gun..

Call Kee, the mini gs, either works or it doesn't. They'll fix it or give you a replacement.

gilzow.....in your case i would replace all the o rings on the bolt guide,dont forget the poppet o ring either.. put a new brand name battery.. .. reset board to stock setings.. run the back cap all the way in.. run it out to 1.25-1.5 turns out.. and pressure at 180-200psi.. see where u chrono then..

Unfortunately, that's exactly what I've already done. Wondering if the spring needs to be replaced. Don't want to thread-jack VyrozGaming, though. I'll start a separate thread.
