Lowering FPS on m Ruger Superhawk

Recommended Posts

Hello all, recently bought a umarex ruger superhawk 6" (black) because i wanted something a bit fancy although it is arguably impracticable as hell.

 

Anyway i need to downgrade the fps as its hitting 450-500 fps and i play on an indoor sight (max 350fps)

 

looked around and i cant find out how to lower the fps. A mate at work suggested it was the hammer hitting the pad thing (cant recall what its called) and the harder it hits the higher the fps and there is a small piece i need to replace to decrease my power. Can anyone point me to the parts i need as i currently have no clue.

 

Thank, Jake.

what do you mean power down shell?

 

also do you no of any leg holsters that could securely hold the ruger? (pretty heavy and i dont trust velcro haha)

Usually cutting the hammer spring does the job on nbb handguns. I don't know about this exact model but if it has a normal spring as a hammer spring, then cut a very little piece of it and check the fps. Half a turn maybe.

Find out if you can get a replacement spring before you go cutting it, mate, because a balls up will be terminal if not.
