By velocity troubles I assume you mean low velocity?
Easiest thing to do is put a BB (approx ¼") in the back cap in the lower tube. This will compress the mainspring a bit & give you higher velocity.
If it's a Sheridan w/a bolt with the internal velocity adjuster make sure you have the two BBs for the velocity adjuster in the bolt. Without those in there a lot of gas will escape.
Make sure your bolt O-rings are good.
Are you holding the Pump forward when firing? On my PGP at least the bolt will blow back a bit & unseal the breech and give a lower velocity if I don't hold it forward. That's actually an old-school trick to cheat the Chrono.
You can order new springs (and other parts) from American Paintball (the owner is a member here) if you need.
You can also make the back-cap on the lower tube into a velocity adjuster by drilling it & tapping it & putting a screw in that will compress the mainspring as it's screwed in.
If your tax return was really good you could always send them all off to Palmers! ;-)
