Exclamation A-5 High Velocity Problem!

Yesterday at the chrono my A-5 kept shooting hot, If i keep pulling the trigger, say maybe a shot per second, i could adjust the velocity down. But when you stop pulling the trigger, it would shoot back up to about 300 maybe a little over. Any ideas what might cause this ? The only upgrade's are polished internals, Tech T ZKH, and H.E. grip. I have other mods but none which would affect velocity. I'm thinking maybe a problem with the power tube ? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank's.

Put in a lighter mainspring or cut a coil or two off the spring you are using now.

well that will effect the velocity some but you should still be able to get it under 300

HPA or CO2?

Start with the mainspring you need to get yourself a spring kit or cut off a couple of coils.
