SA-17 velocity issues

Well, I can't get my SA-17 to shoot over 250 with the RVA all the way in.

I oiled the crap out of it, thinking that would help, and it did a little, but it still won't shoot over 250.

This leads me to believe that my hammer spring may be worn out. Does this thing take piranha springs? Where can I get a new spring for this thing?

I would prefer not to buy the whole $20 SA-17 parts kit. Everything else on the pistol is fine.

Any help is appreciated.

Before you buy a spring try this: measure the length of the spring before starting, then stretch it gently until you get it about 1/8" longer. Try to chrono it again, if it goes up, but not far enough, just stretch it some more.

If that doesn't work at all, just google search "PMI Spring kit". This is one of the first things that comes up, though I can't verify if the vendor is legit or not: PMI Piranha Red Hammer Spring @ Direct Paintball

Maybe a dumb question, but what is the best way to go about stretching a spring?

I just pull on 'em... Just be careful not to bend or kink it.
