I definitely think springing affects is MUCH more than any of the other "friction" factors. Unless you gun is somehow damaged they are usually fairly insignificant. As mentioned, the CCM lower tube kit is the quick/easy/expensive solution.

For what you get with the CCM lower tube kit, I don't think it's that expensive.

yeah, the CCM lower tube kit is what I got, and I love it. though I do want to try tinkering with valves :evilgrin:
the CCM kit includes valve spring, full valve components, hammer, and hammer spring, some valves run upwards of 50$ alone. the CCM kit has a heavy hammer, allowing a lighter hammer spring, for a lighter pump stroke, and allows a heavier valve spring for higher pressure&efficiency. but I have mine at 210 psi shooting 280 just because not many others do

Your efficiency goes in the toilet. You can go with a slightly heavier pump stroke/higher pressure with good efficiency too though
true dat, but if you tune for a well tuned gun....a light pump stroke is a nice byproduct

is efficiency with pumps even really important as long as you can play atleast a game or two off a fill?

edit: forgot some people don't get all day air, sorry.

Thumbs up

I just built this 05/06 BM after Anno & changed the springs to Madmans Green/Green. Used it for the first time in competition this weekend. The pump stroke is Much lighter than stock & just a touch heavier than a friends S6. CP reg running at about 250/265. I actually had to back the IVG out half a turn. It's very consistent & well worth the $10 for the spring kit.

I like that setup yomama. I've got a dust black Magic like yours. I liked the fact that they did away with the backblock and cocking rod. No worries about bumping my mask and short stroking, and it simplifies things. I have all the other ccm upgrades...I guess i might as well go for ccm internals!
So you think the ccm kit I would get would be the same as the s6's (as far as feel compared to what you said the green combo did for you)?
