    Sorry if this is covered elsewhere. If I wanted to lower the power of a 30 fpe .22 wildcat  to around 20 fpe, can that be done soley by adjusting or replacing the hammer spring, or would the regulator need adjusting too?
    I just don’t need that much power and I’m not just trying to increase shot count. Thanks.

    Try first lowing the hst. I think that will be enough to reach the desired speed. If not you can always change the hammer spring. Leave the regulator alone :) Cheers

    Had same problem pauly5.You wont get it off the hammer spring,cos the regs are factory set at 110Bar.Got a UK reg off ASI,set at 65Bar and still had to take 2 coils off the hammer spring.This sets the gun up to run between 11ft/lbs up to 18ft/lbs using 15.9 to 18 grainers.Sold my reg on bullpup forum to get money back for UK reg.

    If you can’t reach the desired speed with just the hst adjuster, you can buy a close valve housing and replace the one you have now (open one). The part i’m talking about is A7 in drawings. That will not allow the valve to travel that much so it will be open for much less time. With the closed valve housing, reg set to 140bar and the hammer spring of the full power version i’m getting a miximum of 740fps with 18.1jsb in a Fx Royale (and i can adjust is for much less), in that way you will not need to replace the reg, in case the hst adjuster is not enough. Cheers
