i just got the vs2 yesterday, i bought it upgraded, and i had a few questions about the regulator. how do you lower or higher the guns operating pressure? my previous gun, the pilot didnt have that so i really need to know how to adjust the pressure the gun is runnign on

Put some electrical tape around the feedneck and then try tightening. To higher the pressure, on the asa there is an allen screw. Gd practice is to put in ur air tank and turn the on/off on all the way. Then turn the screw Anti clockwise till the pressure is bout 250psi. Once the reg is broken in then u can lower the operating pressure lower. hope this helps

so the higher you want the fps, the higher the guns operating pressure is?
and yes its helping =)

lol, yeh, thats correct. Jus make sure u chrono it correctly coz u dont want to be shooting hot ;)

I wouldn't mess with the pressure to affect velocity... Usually I just set the pressure from 200-250 or so and then tweak the velocity with the velocity adjuster.

Wel i didnt wanna tighten the velocity adjuster as that may cause re-cocking issues. I just chrono my gun so its shooting about 275fps and then lower the psi if im playin reball but at the end of the day it doesnt reely matter wat u do as long as its workin so [shrugs shoulders]

you shouldn't have recocking issues by tightening the velocity adjuster.
With your pressure being around 200-250 playing with the velocity adjuster can get you closer to 300fps, or whatever your local fields limit you to.

ohh wait so to adjust the pressure of the gun, i use an allen wrench at the regulator, and the velocity adjuster is at the back of the gun? how do i adjust the velocity without touching the guns pressurE?

^^kk, i'll try that in future!
^use an allen key and tighten the screw at the bac of the gun. This basically makes the spring inside more taut so that the striker goes forward faster. This doesnt affect the gun's pressure

oh ok ty so, there is actually 2 ways of increasing the fps?
04-06-2007, 02:17 PM
yes, there are 2 ways but u get there are also other ways to increase fps such as buying stiffer springs or getting a lighter valve spring. The cheapest though is jus pressure or velocity adjusting as mentioned above
