you mean the mainspring .... try not to cut any of the spring unless the velocity adjuster is all the way out ...

Invest in a spring kit ...

yeah im lookin for a spring kit myself, so far all ive found is stock replacements and one kit from shocktech that has color coded springs for different tensions but i dont know which spring in the gun its meant to replace. also i picked up a valve spring shim kit for mine. shocktech i think it was. you can play with your velocity by switching those out too. i think it only had one size smaller than stock though the other 4 were bigger. I dont know if itl help but just some ideas to play with.

yea, try not to cut your springs unless absolutely needed. you can get a 32* spring kit from either www.a-1paintballstore.com or www.sundragonpps.com

I have both the 32* and trinity sets, I trhink the 32* is the better of the two. Cutting springs is russian roulette; you might wind up with a useless spring.

use the 'light' striker spring or harder valve spring to lessen velocity
