DO NOT raise your FPS over 300... DO NOT DO IT.... Goggles meant for paintball are designed for NO MORE THAN 300 FPS... 280-290 is a good number..


Honestly dude, I can understnad that if you are going LP and you are not getting a velocity over 240, then yes, this will work..

BUT, I am warning you, DO NOT raise your velocity over 300 FPS...

It's just a shim lol. What a waste of money. Makes more sense to just get a 32* spring kit and call it a day. Better yet, just turn the velocity adjuster to the right and VOILA! Your velocity has been boosted -

If you want to understand how the markers cycle, go read Otter's "How It Works (http://www.ottersccustoms.com/works.html)" page, and study the drawings and animation at the bottom of the page.

I'm still relatively new to all this, but I don't see how varying the length of the striker buffer would effect the velocity. I thought the striker buffer only came into play during recocking. The Alamo City website claims it effects the spring tension. I don't see how.

Likewise, I'm not real clear on how the Shocktech shim kit works either. I just don't see how shortening the back stroke of the striker effects the spring tension. Once the striker comes to rest on the sear, the spring tension all depends on the spring itself.

Maybe somebody with more experience can 'splain this to me.

because the added thickness compresses the main spring and guide more...creating more force and discharging the striker forward with greater speed - opening the valve faster and for a longer period of time.

Ooooh....it sits between the spring and the guide....never mind. :o

And since I already have egg on my face, I'll admit that I was thinking that Shocktech shim kit varied the overall length of the spring guide, when, in reality it's the base of the guide that varies in thickness. So these products work the same way.
