Well, with the factory original setting it could do about 120 shots with a maximum filled air cylinder but the velocity moved a lot, I mean it was almost the same when you measured only 2-3 shots but in 15-20 shots it climbed up even 5-6 m/s then in the next 20 shots down with the same so I could never know what velocity I was actually shooting just that it is somewhere between 208 and 215 m/s.

Now it can do only 90 shots but it is much more predictable, it starts around 215, goes slowly down as I do the shots and finishes on 213 with maximum 1 m/s deviation. I think that the massive amount of air used has some levelling effect and I don't mind to fill it a bit more often while the velocity is more stable and reliable.
