i just bought my friends almost mint condition a-5 yesterday and its really a great step up from my 98c
only thing is that i took off the bottom line to use a high pressure tank directly into the marker, but when i went to chrono, the velocity stayed in the 150-200 fps range even when i turned the velocity screw all the way both ways. but when i put the bottom line back on the velocity went back to normal...

any help would be great

thanks

a-5:
flatline
response trigger
shocktech front grip
double trigger
new a-5 body

Nitrogen doesn't have to expand like CO2 does.

Just keep the bottom line on it anyways, it looks better.
