well i went to use my new 04 fs today and after i set the hpr and got it consistantly cycling (at 1st it was shooting like 3-4 balls then just not recocking) well i got it to be relativily consistant when shooting around 300fps, but the field is indoor and the chrono is 250, so i adjusted my lpr so the noid would leak then backed it off about a 1/4 turn. after that i used my hpr 2 change the velocity...thats where the trouble started, it would shoot like 2-3 balls at about 245-250 then it would just randomly spike in velocity or bottom out...like 245,250,330,170...etc
so i gave my gun to a guy there who knew a little about fs's and he said it was my lpr spring spacer (the little brass cap with the point on it in the front bullet shaped part of the lpr) he said that the point was smashed in when i adjusted the lpr too much, and that the point balances on the screw point that you use to adjust the lpr. but i looked at the schematic and it shows the point on the spacer pointing towards the gun. so who is right and what is my problem? why cant i get my gun down to 240-250fps?
please help me i really dont want to have to use a tippmann again....it brings back terrible memories
if you really know what your talking about in reguards to fs's please talk to me on AIM at wise1515
