    Co2 is unreliable and inferior for this reason. Try switching to green gas mags. they'll serve you way better in the long run. I can get about 3 1/2 mags outa one gas fill on my Hi-Cappa

    Try selling or trading the mags, it's not going to get any better

    Why did you get CO2 in the first place? It's a not so good gas source for Airsoft.

    Misfires is not caused by a recoil spring..it's most likely you have a gas line issue...I can guess...but it's not something you can fix. Rather it is the issue of CO2 in itself..

    Have you checked the floating valve/needle inside the nozzle?

    Check for imperfections.

    How do you know its lower power, chrono’d?

    CO2 is King
