Default Re: Turning Down my FPS (way down)

The harder it is to open the valve, the less air is let out. A feather light touch (light main spring) from the hammer won't open it as much as a sledge would (hard main spring). Lighter main spring is less velocity. Harder main spring is less velocity.

Well, he was trying to lower the velocity, so I figured I'd put it in those terms.
