Sheridan PMI-II help
I am a new brass owner and have run into a few problems.
I have a back bottle setup and i am running into velocity problems. How do i adjust the velocity?
Also i don't have a tool to really tighten the square nut in the lower body.
This is after I cleaned it up, reworked the brass tube to not lock up on the forward pump stroke, and put in some new pieces.
What it looked like before.
Any info or help is welcome.
Not a lot of choices for velocity on a back bottle Sheridan. You can shim your main spring or get a rear velocity adjuster put into your BBA. Or, find a Cooper-T BBA with built in velocity adjuster.
Someone on here was offer the service of adding a vel adj to Sheridan BBAs, if I recall correctly. I don't believe they were asking much for the service either.
Mr. Big is correct. Without a Cooper-T rear ASA the best answer os to shim out the main spring. Simply place a shim of some kind behind the main spring in the rear plug, I have used spit wads in a pinch.
there's another option....there was a velocity adjust hammer that I believe PPS did back in the day. It had a ball bearing in the hole of the hammer and an allen screw that was accessible through the slot for the bolt.
I do believe if you wanna do a velocity adjust on your BBA, WALZ does those. Something to check out at least.
Also: I believe Titus has valve tools to tighten the squared off screw inside the lower tube. You can check with him.
Thanks so far for the insights. Right now im using a make shift square key.
I will see what shimming does as a quick fix.
What is the main spring? the one that pushes the hammer...or....the spring pushing against the valve guide?
But how does the airflow work?
Could it be the screws with the air holes in them on the side of the marker? i know the holes dont line up perfectly and they are a corroded.
You using Co2 or HPA?
The main spring is the one that pushes the hammer. The other spring is called the valve spring.
air flow. hammer hits valve releases air that goes up tube through bolt and pushes ball.
the air screws shouldn't impact much unless there is a blockage or a leak at them.....so I doubt it.
what square screws are you talking about? I thought you were talking about the valve retaining nut. are you talking about the air screws on the outside? those are suppose to be allen screws....they could be stripped.
using hpa. I was talking about the valve retaining nut.
Does the valve retaining nut contribute to controlling velocity?
the valve nut is not going to affect/adjust the velocity.
it just holds the valve in and compresses the o-rings.
the easiest way to bring it up to speed will be to shim the spring and hope it's right or drill & tap or buy a BBA that you can adjust with a allen key.
also your HPA reg needs to be set for high output. 800ish
these old untuned sheridan's work best on CO2
