Tigershark help

Hi guys, I'm new to posting here, but I've been playing paintball for about 3 years. I recently bought a tigershark from a friend, and when I took it out to the field, it only chrono'd a 230 fps. Is there any way this can be adjusted?

Dig yourself up an autococker spring kit. You're gonna want a heavier hammer spring so the valve gets held open a little longer. Pretty much any guide on how to tune a nelson based marker should help you out, though.

As Murph said, check out a Nelson-based pump guide/FAQ. Many older Nelson-based pumpers require a heavier spring or a shim to get the velocity higher.

And don't let anybody give you any grief about using a Tigershark. They're surprisingly good little guns, on par with a Trracer/Maverick.

I love using mine, and I'm going to use it more once I get the velocity problem fixed.

I was told that I could put washers in between the spring and the bolt, or something like that, and that would fix it. Will that work?

speaking in theory and not from experience, it should because you put less room for the spring to expand in the cocked position, so it would have more force when it expands and the hammer hits the valve when you pull the trigger. i need to try this on my sl-68 tonight because i cant seem to get more than 220 with a HARD nelson spring.

If you're getting rollouts, a small piece of tape around the lip of the breech end of the barrel can help.

Paint to barrel match would be the first thing to check if the paint is to small for the barrel no amount of spring compression will up your velocity properly.

Sometimes you just have to set paint out for an hour or two to get some swell for proper fit and velocity.
