not sure if this would be better here, or in the cocker section, so mods, if you think it would be better there, please move it for me.

I just got a sniper in the mail yesterday, love the thing, but i'm having some major trouble using it
it's an aim eagle body, with the valve that comes with it

at first, it was setup for unregulated CO2, with the 12ie going directly into the vert ASA, the velocity wasn't even showing up on the handheld chrono (under 200 FPS)

so i switched to HPA and a reg, and no matter how much i tinkered with the reg and IVG, the velocity would do the same thing.

after seating the reg with ~10 dry shots, I would try shooting with paint over the chrono, and my velocity was ~205, 206, 245, 256, and then i would start going back down and stay at the same level which couldn't even get a ball out the barrel, and yes, the paint was sized correctly

if I waited about 10 seconds between shots, they would all be right at 205

the reg is broken in too, it's the stock reg off an 06 alien

Sounds like you need a new spring for it. Try a stiffer one to increase your velocity.

Yeah possibly a stiffer main spring. It could also be that the valve is messed up. I have a tornado valve that got a scratch on the valve stem and now it wont open right.

That did come to mind but you said you played around with the reg. Turn it all the way down and see if your getting a steady fps

Turn the IVG to two to three turns in. Lower the reg to zero and then raise it slowly and sweet spot the reg. Go from there.

I thought you were supposed to back out the IVG flush with the body, sweetspot it, and then turn in the ivg till you get to desired fps

Trivial difference in procedure. Just happens to be faster to start with the IVG in.
