Question 06 electra

Can I turn the regulator psi down and turn the spring velocity adjuster up to save a little gas?Would this cause recocking issues?THANKS!!!

Ive got mine running at around 450psi or so, and it runs great. Drop it until it wont recock, then up it slowly to where it will reliably. Then use a spring kit to get the velocity right. Just take your time, and dont get impatient, and itll be much more efficient. Im gonna try to get mine below 400psi the next time Im at a chrono. A spring kit is a must have for this though! The velocity adjuster on the main spring just wont give you enough to make up for the low pressure.

I turned my screw all the way in, as far as it would go.Then I turned my regulator psi down until it wouldn't recock,then I turned it up until it was at the same velocity as before(maybe more).I'm shooting perfect at 325-330 psi.I can't believe it!

Just remember if youre using co2 to keep an eye on the pressure and velocity as you play. Itll change throughout the day.

Just for a reference, Im down to 375psi, and with a spring kit, its running great. Very consistant, and saves a little more air.
