    Do you know where it is located? I haven't taken apart a spring rifle, only a couple AEG'S and gas pistols, which I can do easily. Just not familiar with it.

    No the air restrictor is screwed into the tip of the cylinder head not the piston head. Leave the air brake on helps with air seal and compression. If u look at the cylinder head Ull see it at the tip and just un screw it and The cylinder will now flow more air. Hope this helps , any more questions regarding vsr10s or snipers in general feel free to ask

    Ok sounds good, thanks. To access it, which parts should I start taking off? Sorry, I don't want to mess up a gun that's not mine.

    Ok lucky for you it's super simple. Take the stock of the gun off then Ull have to pull the guide stopper down from the trigger and the bolt will now slide out. You don't even have to remove the cylinder head just unscrew the little plug from the tip of the nozzle. Guide stop is located in the center of the trigger and you force it down with a hammer or sometimes you can pull it out with ur finger. You can also watch YouTube just search. Vsr10 dissasembly there are many vids out there
