I would like to know if a bigger regulator would help with the distance of my shots.

nope, it wont. increasing the pressure in your regulator, although, will raise your fps (feet per second) and make your paintballs go farther because it is applying more air pressure.

No, a bigger regulator would not help with the distance of your shots nor will larger letters aide the effectivness of your posts. :o

What's wrong with the distance of your shots now? -

they just dont seem to be going that far, they drop after about i would say 60 to 70 feet

What is the velocity? Are you using a chronograph? -

Then why are you asking about distance when you don't even know if the velocity is around 280fps? Get to a chronograph, then decide if distance is really a problem. Just a suggestion -

Ok first off, we are talking about a stock Spyder right? With a thumb screw VA? If so...

That part under the barrel is called the LPC (Low pressure chamber) or LPR (Low pressure Regulator).

You dont adjust those on stock Spyders. The regulator is the thing that you grip onto infront of your trigger. That you can't adjust if you have a stock Spyder.

The only thing you can do is either turn up your VA (velocity adjuster) or get a stiffer spring kit. Wich might be in order.

yeah i just put a stronger spring in and went outside and shot the wall a couple of times that seemed to fix the problem
