Default Re: Shim for Paintball

By doing so increases or decreases the velocity of the marker because the striker is able to hit the valve pin harder or softer to allow more or less gas to pass through. If you are looking to adjust your velocity and you are not satisfied with what you have now I would suggest using a spring kit instead of shims.
