Is there a guide somewhere for what I can do with the spring kit?

its for adjusting your velocity. if you have slow velocity, put a stronger main spring in. if you have high velocity, put a lighter main spring in

Valve spring replacement:
strong spring = lower velocity
medium spring = stock spring velocity
weak spring = higher velocity

Main spring replacement:
strong spring = high velocity
medium spring = stock spring velocity
weak spring = lower velocity

thank you thats exactly what I was looking for, I exparamented with it yesterday and put the strong spring in both the main and valve, with the velocity adjuster backed off to its lowest settings it was shooting at 350.

needless to say we put the med spring in the back. ive at about 270 now.

I wm going to try different combonations until I find one I like.

Thanks again

Main spring replacement:
strong spring = high velocity
medium spring = stock spring velocity
weak spring = lower velocity

Definatley keep those combinations in mind too. The weak Valve Spring combined with the strong Main Spring will have a mich higher velocity then just the strong Main Spring.

Just experiment until you can get that velocity dialed in.

ran with the med val;ve and main over the week end and shot at 270 aveerage, my fps did drop throught the day (new spring) I am trying a different combo now to see how it works

i'm sorry but if you're using both med springs....then you're basically back to stock spring configuration, and didn't change anything. :confused:

light valve and light/med spring works better IMO since it lessens the kick too.

hmm .. really ?? .. is ur gun set to low pressure ?? .. if not i'd put hard mainspring and light valve spring

used to replace the valve spring. Where in Sacramento are you located? Was stationed there until November 2004.

I was stationed at McClellan until the Army finally remembered that they stuck me there, I lived in North Highlands for a while off of Palm Ave. Don't know about the difference between the short and long valve springs sorry...

well .. i dunno my tl-r i purchased from a friend a while back .. uses the small spring .. but the assault block uses big springs ... im not sure why they're made like that ... i guess all i can say is that .. it is :)

compact (has a vertical adapter) spyders use the short springs
full (older) spyders use the long springs

Yep, Ares is right.

Valve spring replacement:
strong spring = lower velocity
medium spring = stock spring velocity
weak spring = higher velocity

Main spring replacement:
strong spring = high velocity
medium spring = stock spring velocity
weak spring = lower velocity

So for the best performance you would use a weak valve spring and a strong main spring? Is it the use if you are running a LP setup?

nope ... strong mainspring'll make it have more blowback and make it release more air .. and the weak valve spring'll let the air come out of the gun for a longer period of time ...

it's weaker main and stronger valve .. you have to work around though
