I'll try to find some pix to upload.

<edit> Here are two. Sorry you can't see the tank better.

I was trying out a Smart Parts All American barrel that day. I usually use an older Armson Pro-Series or Lapco Assault. The SP AA wasn't quite as accurate as the Armson, at least with the field paint we were using that day...

Obviously, Smiley has worked on many more VM's than I'll ever know. I'm sure he can explain the logic behind his recommendation to swap the valve spring. I'm just sharing my experience.
What "setting" do you have the valve on? What is the output PSI of the Tank reg?
