cause i was only shooting at around 210 with my flatline.. which i feel is retarted somehow.. but the chrono at the field said i was only shooting 210, we adjusted the velocity screw are it didnt move one bit....

so i want new springs to pump the velocity up

Are you using CO2 or HPA?

this is what I THINK was wrong..

the remote that i was using had a bleeder valve, and it was leaking through the valve and i didnt know it untill later that day...but i chronod the gun with the remote on it not knowing it was leaking. and it was at 210, i dont know if that was the problem or what...

when i first bought the gun and used the regular barrel the velocity i think was around 285 - 270 .. this wasnt so long ago maybe a month and a half ago.

....but i use CO2.....

The remote is most likelycausing the problem. My tippmann would max out at 240 fps when on a remote. Thats one of the reasons I dont like remotes. Its a common problem.

maybe the problem is with remotes w/bleeders?
I'm running a thick 32degrees, and regularly have to turn down my VA due to high chrono readings from my custom :D

One question,
When you open your valve on your remote, do you open it all the way? If you are, that's your problem.
I found that you ALWAYS need to back-off your remote valve 1/2-3/4 of a turn.
If you don't, the internal rod from your valve will be too far extended and interfear w/flow.

Some players just crack it open with out continuing until the valve stops...I tend to back it off after reaching the bottom.
Hope this helps,
manny

i hope it was the remote...a couple days after this incident happend , i took the remote apart and took the bleeder off. i used teflon tape, sealed it, and put it back together without the bleeder.

as for turning the valve down on the remote, i did that, and it wasnt the problem. i would turn it down a little and heard the co2 starting to escape through the bleeder.


if i cant shoot over 210 next time i got, im going to buy a nitro tank and a drop forward with a on/off.

thats the one i was thinking about getting, if anybody has any suggestions let me know!
thanks!

It could've been the CO2 tank being so cold it lowered the velocity.

Then again, that's just a theory.
