Sheridan PGP questions

I just got PGP (thanks to Long Beard) there is anyway to raise velocity besides buying new velocity adjuster. Today i crawled and stalked two players, and shot them pointblank... the paintball bounced then i got shot up, that's why I am worried about the velcoity. I chroned it and it shoots 250-260 as it supposed to but i want it up to 280-290ish range, so i will have reduced chance of bounces at pointblank range!

You can try shimming the spring if you don't want get an RVA. I usually use the same size ball bearing as the one in the bolt. I believe it is 1/4".

You can use some tiny washers from the hardware store. You put them in the hole in the hammer. It puts more tension on your main spring and raises your velocity.

If this is your shooter forever.....I'd save up for the RVA (rear velocity adjuster) for the long term. Shim for the short term.

You dont actually have to buy one, anyone with a bit of knowledge, a drill press or preferably a lathe can drill a hole in the soon-to-be RVA, tap it, and put a setscrew in it in like 5 mins. I tapped it for M10, dont know what american sized thread is preferred for the RVA.

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

My experiance with Allstar's are a 50/50 break on inpact. Not the best IMO. Try Nelson paint. They fit your bore better too. Call Titus, and tell him I sent you.

i really can't order anything through online, i lucked out to buy PGP from Longbeard.
I improved my velocity by compressing spring more, now it shoots amazing.
Will MARBS do any better than all star?
