a tappet plate is inside the gearbox. it is attached to your nozzle. as the gears rotate, the tappet plate is brought to the rear, which pulls the nozzle back. this loads another bb :mrgreen: a stock tappet plate won't be able to hold up to the high rof of upgraded guns.

Using heavier BBs leads to just as much or even more energy being imparted by the BBs so fields chrono using .2g BBs. Some of the many possibilities are to:
Downgrade your spring
Use a velocity reducer (Not recommended, doesn't work well with full auto guns)
Leave your spring compressed for awhile (Only gives a small decrease in fps)

the only real 100% surefire way is to replace your spring with a weaker one.
