I went to a indoor field this weekend and they wanted less then 250 fps. Which is a first for me. I really had a terrible time getting my gun to shoot that low and still cock. I adjusted the top screw by the bolt all the way out. And I dropped the PSI to 200 flat, and I was still shooting around 270. Only until I dropped the PSI to around 180 did it shoot 250. However then it didnt have enough pressure to recock. Anyone have any suggestions around this senario? I've had no problems shooting 275, and 300 at other fields. Just dont seem to be able to get it lower. Without having Cocking issues. I would like to believe my o-rings were lubed, I played a bout a month ago and after that took everything apart, lubed (I had to replace the eyes in the gun) and put things back together no problem..

Any thoughts?

unless you used something like a stiffer valve spring or a softer mainspring, getting under 250 is going to be difficult if you can't get it lower than 270 without problems...

I just wasnt sure if other people had the same problem and this is normal? Or if my gun is having problems, like I need to go through and lube things again or something. I try not to use to much lube, only cover the o-rings.

You need a spring kit. Once you get that, you can pop in a lighter main spring which should allow you to lower velocity to where you want it without having re cocking problems.

Only issue is, I'm not sure if the VS uses the same springs as other spyders, if not you'd need to get a VS specific spring kit, which I don't think exists yet.

ha ha maybe that field just sucked. No one else has had a need with a VS2 (STOCK) to shoot less then 250 fps? Probably not that big of a deal, I mostly play outdoor woodsball, where its less then 285 and that seems to be fine.

the vs series uses a slightly shorter mainspring. i'd say just get the 32* spring kit and clip the black spring to length

Tisk Tisk Tisk.....

Do Not raise your FPS after you chrono.

Fields have there limits for a reason.

Most indoor fields have a lower FPS for insurance and safety concerns.

Invest in a spring kit for your gun so you can fine tune the FPS as needed.

Nenkitsune's idea seems the best to me, get a 32* spring kit and cut the springs down to size.

Where do I get this spring kit? Does it actually fit the VS2? I didnt think there were many aftermarket mods etc for the VS 2 yet.
