Was wondering if some one would be so kind as to point me in the direction of a tuner that could work on my RWS 54. Shoots really nice but would like to get at least 1000 fps with jsb Predators. The number that would get me to 20fpe is 1048 fps. Or would it be better to try to achieve 20fpe with a heaver pellet like the kodiak, would need 922 fps to get 20fpe If I under stand what Ive been reading on the forum it is better to keep fpe under 1000 ❓ Tried to e-mail a guy on yellow forum no answer not a good way to start a relationship. Any help would be appreciated 😀December 13, 2007 at 4:54 pm #29275voltar-1Participant
How do you figure to get 20fpe out of a 17fpe springer?

Looks like Rob3dr tunes ’em!quote rob3dr:December 13, 2007 at 7:30 pm #29283yParticipantquote Voltar_1:
Just incase you were really wondering Walter… Some of the springs offered by Macarri will do that.December 17, 2007 at 7:38 pm #29638nebraskaParticipant
Thanks Adam will check it out. Voltar_1 Didn’t figure how or if it could be done was hopping that may be some one could. Mite not even mess with it Tony called said my Condor is shipping today. She is going to have power + 😀 😀 😀 😀December 17, 2007 at 7:57 pm #29640rob3drParticipant
I can tell you now that most reputable tuners will NOT tune up a springer for power. Tuning a spring gun is a process of making a nicer shooting gun. Turning one hot only accelerates wear and tear.
There is/was a Monolith kit for the RWS54, but there is also a reason why that Macarri don’t sell a lot of them any more. In my RWS54, I stayed at roughly the same velocity post tune.
Curious as to why you’d want that much out of a springer….. overspringing a gun such as the 54 will just take away from it’s nice shooting behavior.
No offense, but this is probably why the fellow on the YF didnt answer you back.
Another tidbit… if you want more FPE out of a springer, use a lighter pellet. Works the exact opposite as from a pnuematic. My RWS 54 spits out Kodiaks at a whopping 540fps or so in .22. Put a 14.3gr in and it’s doing around 801fps. Springers generate more energy from lighter projectiles so you’re much more likely to get that 20fpe out of a Hobby or Laser pellet than out of a heavy.
