Let's just talk about the Wildcat for a second to use as an example of tuning.

If you set the reg to 130 bar and then start to screw the hammer spring in to increase the tension and shoot over the chrono, you will notice the FPS goes up. But only until you reach a certain point. Then it starts to go DOWN. That means you PAST the point of tune for that reg/HS tension.

My experience with regged guns is when the hammer spring tension reaches a certain point, velocity stays exactly the same and it just uses ( wastes ) more air.
