Velocity adjuster woes.

I am preparing my guns for Fall Castle and was cleaning a Mag.
I dry fired it and I have terrible recharge. I'm pretty sure that I found the problem, but am not sure how to correct it.

I installed a new velocity adjuster and I don't think that it gasses up enough.
I have two of these but they are of different lengths.
Are they not both for standard valves?

Can I shim / space the inside to compensate for the extra length?

shouldn't matter the spring pack fits inside the velocity adjuster so it should not be that.

alternatly if the design of the velocity adjuster does not alow one to screw in far enough but the other one does you may need to use your old velocity adjuster and order a new spring pack to use with the new velocity adjster.

If you haven't already I would oil/lube the reg seat inside and also the on off valve. especialy if its been sitting a while.

Thinking outside the box here...

Do you have the correct 1/16" gap between the back of the trigger & the rod that goes to the sear? I'm wondering if maybe it's not the reg but the on/off not opening completely that's affecting your recharge.
Also, have you tried another tank? Maybe a problem w/the tank reg or the ASA isn't depressing the pin on the tank enough.
Do you use Teflon tape to seal the threads on the fittings? Maybe some of it got free & is blocking a passage somewhere?

Few things to try. First put 2-3 drops of oil in the asa and fire it through. Second, chrono it, your change in adjusters may have you at a lesser pressure at the moment. The shorter one may not adjust down enough, depends on how it is made (velocity adjuster). After that you may need to throw a rebuild kit in there.
