It should. Was that about 2 coils off? If I remember correctly, that should do it. You may have a little adjustability with the main spring adjustment screw now.

3 coils actually, and it still feels a decent bit tense and sturdy not like its about to fart like the pumps or wobble or anything. Yeah it held up for a bit then just decided to launch 320s yesterday.

Any other changes? Different paint? Weather changes? Just strange that it would be doing fine them all of the sudden you are shooting hot again.

Still around the 90s down here in Houston area but its possible they change paint at the field I usually go to. I hadn't done any tear downs or anything of that sort after it was stable so I can't say for sure. I even tried backing the rammer cap almost all the way out and it didn't help. I am a little more confident in this working out than the tension on the spring.

I agree. Cutting the spring down should help you. At least keeping the marker cocked for a while helped........somewhat........for at least a little while . Meh, it was worth a shot anyway.

Yeah it got me a full day of play so I completely appreciated that advice. Will let you know what I clock in at next time I go out. It may be the first time I have to turn the velocity adjuster up!

regulating the marker should allow you to fine tune the velocity. As well as give it bit of consistency.

I probably won't go in the direction of getting a reg for this marker just yet. Would rather let it limp while I save for my next buy rather than money pit it at the moment.

Shooting properly now at around 260-280 with a LOT of turns in! Spring cut was definitely needed.

Could have, but was easy enough to cut it that it didn't make any sense to order something.
