WGP Pump problem

I'm new to the pump, just bought one and when I got it it shot fine, great really, but when I took it to the field and went to chrono, I was shooting around 350fps. I went to turn it down and when I get it down to a playable speed, when you shoot it air leaks out of the barrel till you cock it again, and I mean a lot of air, but when the presure is turned back up on the reg this stops but then I'm shooting way over 300 fps. I'm sure there is an answer ro this somewhere on here, but I couldn't find it, and like I said, I'm real new to the pump thing. I got it to play at Living Legends durring pump and pistol play on Friday. Anyone have any info for me? I'd appreciate it.

Are you adjusting the hammer tension too, or are you only adjusting velocity using the regulator?
A lot of pump players coming from an electro background are unaware that the autococker has a built-in velocity adjuster.

Right. Remove the cocking rod and look down into the hole- it runs through a disc with a hex-slot in the middle that adjusts in and out to change the spring tension on the hammer. That disc is the velocity adjuster, and screwing it in and out with an allen wrench will change the velocity. Adjusting it in should raise velocity, up to a point, and vice versa.

Ideally, next time you have access to a chronograph and some paint you'll sweetspot the regulator and adjuster.

under the bolt, where the rod goes into the gun? I see a round metal piece with a little hole to the left of the one the rod goes into. Is that what you are talking about? and if so, how do I adjust it?

Little hole to the left?
Sounds almost like a Rex dialer with a spur gear.
Was this gun stock when you got it?

I think mine is different, I can't seem to get an allen to grab anything. I was trying to post a pic of it, but I can't figure out how to do that either.

It's possible that the previous owner swapped out the stock velocity adjuster for a Rex dialer, or something similar.

These are aftermarket velocity adjusters that let you adjust the velocity by turning a smaller screw adjacent to the actual spring perch- the little part drives the main adjustment like a spur gear. This allows you to adjust the velocity without having to remove the cocking rod. Pretty handy, if that's what it is.

I have don't know if it's stock, yes there is a hole to the left and I just figured out that there is an allen in there.

In that case, you'll still want to "sweetspot" the gun as it says in the guide above. Just make sure you have a wrench small enough to use with your rex dialer and follow the instructions as normal.
