View Full Version : dang, low fps!

11-10-2007, 04:16 PM
well, i lost the washer thingy between the striker bolt and the velocity adjuster (any have link to officiall mr piece washer?), i went to the hardware store and make a make shift one that worked last time out, but went to a field today and i had my velocity adjuster turned in all the way and i was averaging 200-240fps...I tried to stretch out the spring but it didn't help, suggestions for getting my fps back?

(note, i didn't strip my gun from the last time, and didn't oil it before hand - altough i shot oil through it a month ago when i used it last


any luck with these spring kits? trinity spring kit (4 springs) or the diablo mongoose spring kit (only three springs, but bolt springs too?)?

It's called a Striker buffer. Going through Froogle, here's what you get...


You might be able to find a used one cheaper somewhere.

The Trinity spring kit will work - it's not a bad price for those springs.

you definitly need the strikfer buffer,

acp sells some derlin ones for like $10 i think
