    Good day

    Is fitting a scope not an option? Then the missing front sight wont matter.

    What is your regulator set at to achieve this? Most power I have been able to get out of my imact mk2 700mm is about 54 ft.lbs. 30g slug at 900fps. reg set to 150bar with valve full open and hammer spring maxed out. tested the 30g slugs at 160 and at 170 bar respectively and it made no difference to velocity. Strangely tho, 25.39gr pellets DID increase velocity with the increased reg This test was done out of a 700mm pellet liner. as I have not fitted my slug liner yet. I would assume I would get even lower fps with the slug liner due to the faster twist rate?

    Regulator (Huma Gen 3) is set at 150bar, power wheel at setting 5.
    I do not think the FX AMP Regulators are as good as Huma (Wyan was very surpised as how efficient Huma regs works).

    Hmmm the huma may be better but 150 bar is still 150 bar on the gauge of the plenum.

    Damn... then I am somehow missing 3 ft.lbs somewhere. There's nothing more I can do besides modding the internals to get more out the MK2. Unless fitting the slug liner itself will net me 3 ft.lbs

    Your hammer spring is only set to 5 as well? - what does she do at max then?

    Perhaps the 30g slugs are outside of the rifles efficient range and it performs better with sliiiiiightly lighter slugs.

    Again, found it weird that there was no increase in velocity of the slugs as i went from 150 to 160 to 170 bar. The lighter 25.36gr pellets were increasing by about 15 fps as I increased in 10 bar increments from 150bar onwards.

    Thanks man and congrats on an awesome looking MK2.
