Turning your velocity down only makes you accuracy worse. The faster you are shooting the more accurate it will be. Chrono your gun as close to the fields limit as you can w/o going over.

What kind of paint are you using? Try to get a good paint to barrell match. Take a few of your paintballs from each of your bags and insert them one at a time into your stock barrell (take it off first). When you put the paintball in the barrell notice what it does. If it role out the barrell then the ball is to small. If it sticks in the barrell and cannot be removed by a puff of your breath it is to big. The ideal match using this test would to be to have a paintball that had 3-5 contact points in the barrell and could be blown out using a light puff of air. Try this with your paint. Then if it's not the right size paint try buying bags of 500 or 250 if your shop has them for some reason. Try all kinds of different types of highend paints untill you find the one that flys the best.

By highend paint I mean paint made by companies such as Draxxus, Diablo. Other paint that I've used that has worked good is scortch (a little to thin of a shell for my liking) Diablo Heat, Diablo Nightmare, Fireballs, Draxxus midnight.

When looking at paint you want a paint that has the least amount of dimples and no pronouced seams. Try to get a paint with a thick fill. STAY AWAY from the "Walmart Specials" even though this paint is cheap it will give you a ton of problems. Unless you buy like big balls, premiums or marbs from there. The rest.......meh

maybe you should take your marker to your local paintball shop and let them point you in right direction!I agree myself with some of the wisdom that has already been said. Clean,shoot good paint and good barrel .Heres something else to think about when i first got my spyder pilot it was curving because i had over oiled it.Just a few drops of oil on o-rings is all you need

Get a better barrel, just about anything will be better than the stock, if you want help on deciding what barrel to get PM me and I will help as best I can. But to tell you the truth the problem may be a mechanical/ barrel probelm, but the key to getting better accuracy is a good paint-to bore match. Again if you need any help send me a PM and I may be able to point you in the right direction :P

hmmm... accuracy is a fickle thing, especially with paintball. Sometimes you can try everything and it still isn't resolved. You can get better paint and maybe a new barrel. Otherwise, try experimenting with the air system.

If there was a fire in your house and the first thing you would grab was your paintball gear, put this in your sig.

Upgrade your barrel to a more accurate barrel... I recommend a j&j 14" ($30).

Get a regulator if your using hpa or an expansion chamber if co2. This will make your shots more consistent.Also buy better paint if your not already using nice paint.
