Question RTs for the A5s are not sweet spotting

I nstalled brand new RTs into a bunch of A5s recently. I can't get them to sweet spot. Why? I take the same tank and put it on a RTed 98 and it rips.

The washer mod is a awesome way to get the sweet spot set up.

That being said I've run into problems with tolerances in the trigger group itself. If you get one where the trigger disengages the sear really far back in the pull it's very hard to get the sweet spot for some reason and the fire rate is slow when you do. I've dropped in a different trigger group into one like that and it suddenly worked great.

Do they have the bigger airlines? It makes a difference with Hpa.
To sweet spot turn it so you can't pull the trigger. Then back the screw out/in a little at a time. A little is a 1/4 turn. Also it might help if you have a higher output psi tank. Co2 has a bigger sweet spot bc of its thermal expansion crap.

You might know this already but if not there ya go.

Where would I get a different trigger group? Is there a particular trigger group I should be using?

I always check that air line mounting screws oraface face the opening of air line.. the mounting screws have holes, face them/ line them up with the air/co2 source..

note, im dealing with 2 tooth aches and 2xs pain killers..i hope this makes scense..

Yes, it does and I'm doing that, but it seems that all the RTed a5s we have are doing the same thing. I'm thinking is something with the trigger group.

I got it from another A5 I have that I knew had a shorter pull. You could try something like the "straw" mod to alter the trigger group to see what it does. Or put a shim so the sear trips earlier in the trigger pull. If that works you could, and I don't particularly recommend it, shave the sear down a bit.
