Link to manual for barrel modification. (http://tinyurl.com/ytds2m)

King-man, right click on the image for the download, "copy link location." ;)

It's alright to share the wealth of knowledge, just don't go and spam the forums with links to yours. The website downloads are fine, as they're merely yet another resource. The VS User Group name is blocked by the filter, though.... hmm... *thinks and glances at link I posted*

Thanks for the CP 2k5 ASA manual, by the way, I've been too lazy to go to CP's site to download it. :p

did you break the reg in?
Id turn the pressure up a little if you did break in the reg

Did you over-pressurize the regulator? Check what PSI it's showing when it does that the next time. Before that happens though, break it down and lube it.

I'm ASSUMING that this is HPA, am I correct in that assumption, or are you using CO2?

last time i checked there is no "exhaust" on a reg but i get what your saying, it sounds like you are using co2

no co2 always use air my psi is at 250, ill play with it and see what happens i will lube it up again and let u guys know

and the exhaust im talking about is the asa/reg that is what seems to be spitting out air till i switch it off

Instead of cutting off the wings of a $250 spyder, i went and mill down the $30 Trinity Accurate 14" barrel instead. Heres what it looks like after:

What does it mean to break in a reg?

What does it mean to break in a reg?
Basically, the regulator has a break-in period. It needs to have a certain amount of air put through it so that it will work properly. I hear people say that once you have put 4K-8K balls through the marker that the reg should be broke in. Once the reg is broke in you should see a more consistent psi and therefore you will also see tighter chrono speeds with more consistency in your shots. Also, the marker should use less air and be more efficient.

yeah but the stock regs blow on vs2's, get a real reg like a cp, aka, BL, dye forsome real consistancy

after its broken in would it fix the problem of my gun uncocking randomly during high rofs

It might. Depends on how the shootdown is; I'd lube the gun, including the regulator.

How new is the marker? I had put around 10K balls through mine and started experiencing some recocking issues. Upping the pressure was the only way to stop the issue and that required me to put up to about 300-310 psi. I ended up changing the striker(red) o-ring and it seems to be doing great again at 250-260 psi. Mine didn't look bad and I always kept it lubed. I thought that I was having issues with shootdown or my charge rate was lacking. The new oring took care of all my issues.

Is the regulater the front grip on the gun and the asa the part where the tank screws in or do i have it wrong? And wats a good barrel kit that fits the vs3 without being modified?

normally you would be right but vs2's arent regular, the front grip is actually just a gas thru grip, the asa is both an ON/off asa and a regulator in one peice, why they did this no one knows, but if you consider geting a new asa you better make sure you have a got a new reg setup also, basically to get a new reg you need an adapter or a new front block from trinity, then you need a new asa or take the reg seat out of your vs's reg to make it a constant out put equal to the tank.

Yecuas, I was having that same issue. I believe your operating pressure is to high. Once I lowered it to about 200 psi, the issue never came back.
