Will I still be able to chrono 290ish with a softer (idk the word for it...maybe less tense?...idk) spring setup?
I know putting stiffer springs in would make the pump stroke harder but are there benefits?
Is the Madman Spring Kit worth it?
Smoother usually means less efficient. Not always, but most of the time.
It could make the marker smoother, more or less efficient, sound signature different. Pretty much everything about how your pump gun shoots.
Depends on your reg pressure, and valve spring tension. Most guns like anywhere from 300-350. If it is a mini'd sniper, they tend to like 400 ish pressures.
Yes, it will make it more efficient if you do it correctly.
Yes, it is like 14 bucks with shipping and makes a world of difference.
