So my new gun is shooting a bit hot at a little over 410 fps, now I am worried i wont be allowed to play on certain fields
I don't really want to buy a whole new spring for it and don't really know how to put one in.
I have this idea that might sound a little crazy, but that's why i came here before doing anything, Ive read that leaving your spring in your AEG after full auto can leave it compressed and can loose tension and FPS overnight. Now i know this isn't particularly "good" for the gun, but i was wondering if its still Safe.
Does it damage anything else in the gearbox like the spring guide or something?
it sounds a bit stupid even to me, but couldn't find anything on google so thought I would come here

Is your gun new? If it is not past the break in period, it can still drop and settle about. 20fps less

yes its quite new, a G&P from evike's daily door buster deal
That being said are fields strict about these kind of things? if its like ~10-20 fps over the limit? I haven't gotten to play at many legit fields but never had one that shot this hot
i do plan on putting rounds through before bringing it to my next field to zero in my new scope, and my new midcaps need to be run through as well as some pickup games with a few friends
I might be able to get away at Zulu 24 this weekend, but I'm more worried about the paid for OPS that you guys offer which always look like fun and will hopefully see you guys at the Fallout 5 OP.
Hopefully this wont take too long but i will definitely give it some time before doing anything drastic, thanks loctite

Depends on the field insurance. Something like 410 isn't really pushing it too hot (especially if its 410 with .2s). Field limits are 400 with .25s, 450 with .2s. [Roughly about 1.85 joules]

You should be able to use it without any issues. Your spring will settle in at a lower fps after usage. Don't do the 'leave it in a compressed state'. It's a perfectly new gun, no sense pre-wearing it.

Like Speefy said, 400 w/.25s is more the norm. if Zulu chrono-ed your gun and you were good, then no worries.
