Alright, for all you modders out there, if I were to cut down a spring in a sniper rifle, would it reduce the power, or would gun not function anymore?
I know how to take apart the gun down to all the internals inside the cylinder, no problem. Trying to see if I can possibly use a sniper rifle in a CQB setting, but only use it when we get the larger, more open building.
Also, on a side note, does anyone know the output power of the Laylax SFG 110, or the increment scale for those springs?
Thanks in advance.
Professional work for the average player. I repair, upgrade, and custom build AEGs, GBBs, and sniper rifles. PM me to set up a job. Quality work, Guaranteed.

The answer depends on how much you cut off. Cut off too much and the spring won't be long enough to compress.
If you're careful you should have no troubles cutting the spring down to tailor it to a specific fps. Cutting in 1/8" increments should make small enough reductions in fps to allow you to bring it down to exactly what you want.
If you find that you've screwed up and taken a little more than intended off you can increase the preload on the spring by placing a nylon washer (available at any decent hardware store), or two, at the end of the spring, inside the piston. Increasing preload on the spring effectively adds to spring compression and will up the fps, marginally.
If you've really screwed up and taken off a big piece that you want to put back on, use a nylon washer between the long spring and short spring and make sure the short piece is inside the piston. That way the washer is completely enclosed in the piston with the tension from both springs holding it in place.
You can also use the two spring method to tailor your cylinder for an increase in fps.
If you have a fixed hopup you may need to change bb weight as you increase or decrease fps.
