I don't have a Siphon tank currently.
I had been testing it on HPA, but when I switched to my CO2 tanks like you suggested and re-sprung it with my lightest mainspring it started recocking happily. Thanks!
MAN is this thing a beast!

Putting the valve on the widest port sends the most air to the velocity/bolt. Putting it on a smaller port will give you more pressure to recock.
You shouldn't need liquid CO2 but most VMs don't like HPA without some tinkering.
Hm. I thought I read somewhere that the larger port sends air back for firing AND recocking, but I your version makes a lot more sense. I'll try that later if I feel like it, but simply switching gas sources seems to have done the trick.
