My Alpha Black will not shoot above 200 FPS. Barely 190.

I've got a new spring, a new velocity screw, I've cleaned this gun several times.

I've run this gun on a full tank, and I've used it with and without a remote coil. I dont know what else to do. When I first got it the thing shot like a sniper rifle, and now I've got to arch every shot. Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I switch to compressed air as opposed to Co2?

Help!

Have you changed anything on the marker at all?

No, but I spoke to someone who suggested it.

It might be my valve. I have to check it out.

I fixed one where the player screwed the velocity screw in ALL the way.

The screw dropped inside the powertube. He thought he'd lost it and inserted a second velocity screw. The first one blocked the passage enough that he was only shooting 160 fps.
 
Could that have happened to yours?
