did you try turning down the regulator?

alright here are your problems and how to fix them.

1. to change your velocity, use the regulator, turn it to a lower pressure. if you can't get it low enough with that, use the velocity adjuster. if none of that works you can A. trim your spring, one coil equals about 115-25 fps, or better, buy a spring kit, cause you should have one anyway.

2. you marker shoots inaccurately for a few possible reasons, i will list them from most to least likely.
A: you have a bad bore match between your paint and barrel it will not shoot straight. to find out if you have a good match, put take your barrel off and put a paintball in it. blow on your barrel. if the paintball rolls out without blowing, bad, if you have to blow really hard, bad. you want something in between the two, were you have to blow, but not hard.
B: you are using bad paint that is dimpled or not round. this leads to bad ballistics.
C:you have something in your barrel, kinda obviouse why this affects it.
D: you have to high of an FPS with is making the ball wobble, kinda like the way a balloon doesn't have a straight trajectory when you kick it very hard.

This exact thing happened to me too. What happened with mine was that the on/off switch on the cradle was on too much. It only needs to be turned on about 1 1/4 full rotations.
Hope this helps!
