Default My spyder is shooting too fast

I bought a spyder victor, and when I was chrono-ing it, it came out to 413. It rarely dipped below 400. How do I fix this?

- I'm using co2 if that matters

lol, when i read this, i was like woah, shooting too fast? everyone wants theres to go faster, but you want to slow down?

For the velocity, theres a velocity adjuster on the back of the gun....and turn it until it goes down and down when you are cronoing it.

No, I want to play with at OA (a paintball place) and their chrono limit is 290. T.T

I tried the knob on the back, it shot at 190 then jumped back up to 400.

No, I haven't opened it at all..

Outdoor adventures?

I live in Maryland
Id suggest oiling the gun, and maybe cutting the spring on the back of the gun

I have gun oil (I recieved some at OA during Battle of the Buldge ), but I don't know exactly how to clean / oil it.

How far do I cut the spring?

im not sure about the spring, so wait until someone else who has done it before tell you how to do it....

To oil it, put the oil in the asa, and then but the co2 on, and fire the gun....

dont put alot of paint in it tho

Yes, by putting oil thru there you allow it to go through the valve and oils the essential parts.

As far as your gun shooting too fast, I'd personally get a spring kit and mess with those. A harder valve spring and lighter main spring'd do the trick, or mebbe even just a lighter main spring.

To cut it, if you choose to do that, just take a pair of wire cutters and snip off a couple coils. Not too much, mind you. Take off two coils, then see where it's at with the adjuster all the way out. Keep snipping off a coil until you hit the 260fps range.

Welcome to the boards, by the way!
