Raptor Valve and Striker Springs

I got my Raptor LTD second Hand, from a kid who didnt know what he was doing. I looked at a parts diagram and cannot come to a conclusion so i am asking for help from someone who has one, or has worked on one. Which spring belongs on what, there are two different springs and i want to make sure they are in the right place. One is wound tightly and the other is rather open. The way it was when i got it the tight one was on the striker, and the open one was on the valve. I am haveing velocity adjustment problems and noticed there was a spacer missing from the parts diagram, but when i made one and istalled it the spring would overcompress and cause a problem.

thanks Erik

You guessed right on the spring arrangement. The looser coil goes on the valve and the the tighter coil goes on behind the striker.

Brass Eagle Tech Support - #1443 Raptor Silver Eagle Semi-Auto Marker (discontinued)

The spacer (part #27) is optional if you really want to make your marker shoot really really hard.

Make sure you have all the parts lined up in the valve/striker assembly.

Don't forget the valve guide (part #2, looks like a star washer) and make sure it sits square on the valve.
Also make sure that the spring guide is there (part #28, it doubles as a tool to get the connecting pin (part #6) out).

Sometimes the striker spring gets really stiff in which case you might have to do the dreaded spring cut. Just make sure you cut only 8th's of a turn off the spring before rechecking if the marker is still having your problem.

As for your velocity adjustments problems, what specifically was it? Was the speed to low or too high? Or was it just bouncing all over the place?
