splatty low velocity info

I need to see if anyone has a thought on low velocity I havn't chronoed either of my splatmasters in years (due to the field I play at seeing no point since as they put it the velocity wasn't adjustable.) we;; I was working on my cobra and got a wild hair to chrono one of the splatmasters and I get about 165fps so the first thing I did was take it apart an clean it no good so i tried shimming the mainspring no good so my last attempt was i disassembled the valve cleaned it put in a new cupseal it turns out MadCustoms 12g seals are identical to the stock seal and I clipped a light nelson spring to fit the valve but I still am only getting about 175fps and I have tested with 12g and CA

Any thoughts would be great I am hoping I am missing something

Thanks,
yonu

Most folks talk about getting around 250-280.

I have several that I use periodically.
I'd call that "250-280" about right.
There are "old skool" tweaks like torching springs or increasing hammer weight, but my first one went 15 years before needing a rebuild.
So once you get it where it needs to be, it stays there.

What I notice is the efficiency, they seem to get twice the shots over any other SC marker I own.

And surprisingly accurate for a short plastic barrel.

I would imagine that the Splatmaster's plastic barrel was not molded with today's tiny paintballs in mind.
