Slightly increased efficiency without dropping a dime:

After looking at high flow floating valves and the position of a firmly tightened WE G mag valve I decided to loosen the float-valve a few degrees to give one of the valve ports a better path to the nozzle. I noticed tighter fps readings at Chrono, but still topping out at 320 with full mag of gas after mag rest.

I wouldn't go more then an 1/8th of a turn loose for safety reasons.

It's an Elite Force so your options are rather limited. Your best bet is to get one of their rebuild kits and hope it has the part you need. I agree with Fred though, the best thing you can do is just get a different, better, pistol.

I think the hammer rebuild kit has a spring I can use, however I do want another full metal gbb. Any recommendations? I’d like something that’s extremely customizable, I’ve been looking into hi capas but I’m still fairly new to airsoft so I’m unsure

Get a Hi Capa. Stay away from WE.
WE's are better than EF's... but try to stick to KJW or Tokyo Marui (TMs plastic but amazing) the kjw kpo5/6 is something you should check out

Yes to all of those things. Plus, with a TM, you just need a 120% recoil spring, and you're good to run propane with no fear of the stock slide cracking. The plastic slide works quite well in colder weather with just propane. A metal hammer strike plate won't hurt, either. And for the love of god, don't buy from evike.

Just a heads up, I will be taking a brief break from Teching. My wife and I are moving cross country and I will be starting a new career. My airsoft stuff is being left with my parents for now, and it will be brought to us this summer, so until then I will be unable to take any teching jobs.

And this is it? The last we've heard? I just joined this site and already am missing out on someone whom everyone lauds as a great tech-person??
Well, I hope ya didn't get eaten by a grizzly and that it all worked out for ya, Shady.
Just been busy with life and other hobbies. I ended up moving back to Texas in late 2020. Met a girl, knocked her up, got dumped, all the fun stuff. I check in here once a day or so to make sure the place isn't burning down. I don't currently have a shop set up for airsoft (my shop at home is currently set up for my bladesmithing). But we are going today to look at a new house that has a massive outbuilding that I could have room for both, and still probably wall off an area to use as a separate kitchen for my bakery.

Both. I specialize in bread but am expanding into offering more cookie flavors. Trying to widen my offerings before spring comes and Farmers Market season comes around.
