So I basically need a new spring for my sniper. I realized this by when I went to my last scenario. My gun was shooting around 240 consistent. So I adjusted the IVG, but when I did, I noticed that I was 5 threads in. I knew the spring was wearing out, thus my velocity is dropping. I looked around, but I don't know where I can get some. So, can somebody point me in the right direction? Thanks.

Nope. I tried that. I bet I am over-pressuring something for sure.

You should be at about 300psi, and the IVG at about two threads in. What i like to do is back the IVG to like one to two threads and turn the reg down. Take your barrel off and slowly turn your reg up while firing ur gun and put ur hand on the front off the gun covering the barrel threads and shoot into your hand, you can then begin to feel the force go up and up and around the highest point the air should start to hurt and then when you over pressurize the air will start to hurt less so you go back to when it hurt the most and that is your highest point. Then you just use the IVG to adjust the Velocity. That is a ghetto way to do it if you dont have a chrono or psi measuring method. You can try that and see if you get any results but thats what I do with my karni and it works. But i had a Hyper and an old timer at the field had a psi tester, and we put my reg to 300 psi and I put a pump on and my gun chronoed at 307,301, 308. Also you could have a very tense valve spring and u have compesate for that. Also is ur gun farting?

It is now. Before, it never would. It would just go poof and fire nicely. Now, it farts and shoots low.

Thanks Side-Swipe! What you told me to do, I did, and it shoots amazing. Way better than before. Its much quieter, accurate, consistent, and it feels better to shoot. Thanks man!

You're welcome, its great that ur gun is up and running, shes a beaut. From now on adjust the velocity with the IVG, ur reg should be more or less sweetspotted. Not very fine tuned but almost at the peak of the sweetspot. You can now sweetspot the gun more easily if you get the reg at the highest FPS you can (not necessarily the most legal or useable but the highest you can obtain by only adjusting ur reg) , and then using the IVG to bring down ur velocity or bring it up, if you cant do that using the IVG, that is when you need to change springs.
