I was looking at Airsplat(I have no clue why). And i came across this:

http://www.airsplat.com/Items/AR-WELL-MB10-WD.htm

It says it has an adjustable FPS, and it is spring. An air restrictor screws into the piston head. This could be a very nice feature to have. It also appears to be VSR compatible, does any one know if it is?

I am also curious if any one has ever heard of this in a spring rifle?

Interesting idea. Seems like it would work fairly well. Although I have some doubts about it changing the pressure of the air coming out. Same amount of air with smaller release = higher pressure. May have some consistency issues, but this is just speculation.

I really like this idea. It could be very helpful if you play at different fields with different FPS regulations. One field has 550 fps limit and the other has 400. Then you could just do a quick takedown and adjust it.

Also, Does the piston head look a little long for a VSR. Cause to me it does?

But is the probable reduced consistency worth just not taking apart the cylinder and being lazy? I don't really think it would be. A good idea though, but I just can't see it being practical... :(

I smell consistency issues, like quigly said. However, I am sure a mod or two would fix that up. Being that of a clone, I am sure there are some downfalls to this feature.

Curious to see how it turns out though.

If it is the same fitting as standard VSRs, I wonder if throwing the cap on a already well outfitted cylinder would improve it at all. Interesting concept, but I bet for anything past backyard plinking, it isn't going to work out well.

Edit: They are also claiming a 200 FPS decrease/gain from this thing. Just throwing that out there.

I just thought of this. This won't be field usable for some fields based on the regulations. The rules state you have FPS limits, so who's to say a person using this rifle chrono's one way and then adjusts it later on out on the field? That would be my concern if someone was using this.

That's exactely what I was thinking. That alone would probobaly stop the gun coming into Ireland and the like. I did however manage to get a gun chronoing in at 550 fps somehow. Lol. I did cut the spring though so nothing illegal.

I too have thought about the people that would just change out in the field, but since it probably wont work, I didn't feel I needed to talk about it. Anyways, cheese man, not a whole lot of people want to go through the time and money to get a good HPA set up. I would like to see a reliable, consistent change for a spring rifle. I bet with some hard thinking and a lot of trial and error someone could do it. My mind is not powerful enough to deal with the physics it would need. But maybe something like 249s with a quick spring change out?

I see what you mean, and I was being a little sarcastic. What I have thought about is a screw attached to the spring guide, to move it forward/backward, to give more or less tension, but I haven't found a good way to do that yet. I just got so fast AT&T taking my gun down that I could change the spring faster than my friend could change the barrel in his M16, and just carried extra springs with me.

Step 1: Seperate stock from rifle.
Step 2: take out spring guide pin off trigger.
Step 3: Take out bolt assembly.
Step 4: unscrew cylinder head
Step 5: take apart bolt assembly, and replace spring.

Easier with L96
1. Pull down spring guide pin
2. Take out cylind unit
3. Take off cylinder head
4. Replace spring.
