How do I tune my velocity?

Included in the marker are a variety of oil tempered springs for different velocity settings. Shorter for lower velocity and Longer for higher velocity. Inside the pack there is also an extra long spring for you to cut and tune with. For best result cut or file off 1/8th to ¼ coil of the spring each time. Though this process it tedious, it is worth it for the fps stability you’ll get.
