Hi. I have an A5 with Palmer Stabilizer and Flatline. Everything else is stock. I keep the FVA flush with the tube.

Last month we played in rain and things got really really wet. When I got home I cleaned and oiled my gun to make sure the internal stuff would not rust.

Yesterday we went to play. I chronoed my gun and could not get it past 240. This was the first time this has ever happened. I have since purchased madman springs and am using the red one. I went to chrono today but I could only get it up to about 250, and that's even with the stabilizer screw almost all the way in. Is there anything else I can do before I start looking at the Palmer.

RVA would be a good idea.

this is going to allow you to adjust the velosity more or less by putting more or less tension on the drive spring.

also, you can try adding 1 or 2 bb's in the end cap or RVA. just take the end cap/RVA off and drop 1 or 2 bb's ino the hole, place the drive pin back into the hole and put the drive spring over the pin. this will give more tension to produce more velosity
