I have have an ssg10. I recently ordered and received an m170 spring not realizing that with .46 bbs the j would be wayyyy over my local field limits of 2.81 can I just cut off a ring or two to bring it down to an M150?

Yea, but I recommend using a lighter, stove, or torch to carefully heat one end of it instead.
The right amount of heat will soften the spring, and the right length will drop power without having a non square and sharp end.

Shoot for beyond blue to dull red, and test in the gun every ring or half ring when you get close.

Alternatively you could leave the gun cocked overnight, and check it every 12 hours or so until the power is right.

Thanks for getting back to me. What I ended up doing is cutting it short. I heated up the spring to flatten it and cleaned up the sharp edges. I ended up having to use a couple of GPS springs but I got it just under the 2.8 j limit.
