What's the best way to contact Steve? I'd like to send in the marker and have him try and dick with it.

I tried DSA's red mainspring, yellow valve. I used a lapco cupseal. It got good velocity, but started decreasing FPS at around 8 shots WTF mate?

I then tried CJOttawa's red mainspring, blue valvespring. I used a CCI cupseal. And could not get to velocity, and got about 11 shots max.

I then tried Yellow-Yellow combo. I've heard this has worked too. I could not get it up to about 250. Not too many shots either.


Any suggestions?

I'm running red main, green valve with luck. I really want a new chrono for Xmas but its doubtful to be under the tree unless I buy it myself

I could only get good efficiency going backbottle, I never had luck getting good velocity and efficiency with the in grip air. Went backbottle and instantly got 30ish at 260-270 and able to string out to 40 above 200.

That's interesting because I've never had a problem getting 30 shots above 260 with my ingrip Redux or my Duck.

In fact I remember getting 40+ shots above 260 fps when I tested the Redux.

I wonder what is causing the efficiency discrepancy between different Ducks.

I had spring problems until I realized I could remove that brass de-volumizer slug in the valve. After I took that out I have had really good luck getting to 300 with a lighter mainspring.

Don't know what springs I am using now or how many shots I am so I'm not much help.

Interesting, is there any way you could post a picture of that?? The only brass thing in both my Redux and VKC Duck is the cup seal. If there's something else I can tweak for efficiency gains, I'm all for it!

On topic: I run a red main, red valve, fluted hammer in my Redux. Seems like an odd combo, I know. But, it consistently gets me 30+ shots at 270. With medium/high grade paint and a mild underbore, it's very consistent, up to the last few shots. Very sharp dropoff. I like Valken Redemption paint with it, seems to work very well. I've been using this spring combo in the Dux for over a year now, it seems to work well in almost all weather. Except when it's about 10* out...12ies are your enemy then
