Doubtful, it shot so good and hasn't been messed with in 2 years. Pellgun oil and co2

Response to Sorry if this one is obvious

I bought a whole hand basket of Daisy .177 pellets on clearance, $1.72 for 500.
Bulk fill co2, we likely ran 4000-5000 through it with no changes.

I had shot 1/2 tube, plus 1/2 refill, a week before and was hitting tallboy cans with heavies at 50 yards.
Then I was shooting squirrels, another 50-60 shots letting the co2 off before the pump arrived.
Just a normal taper off, and the first air fill tapered normally.
Then nothing.

Thanks for pointing it out, I'll locktite after adjustment.
Search says 1.5-2 turns out.

On the topic of tuning, need to tune for a lighter pellet and 15-17LBS would be plenty.
Is there an estimation of required valve travel vs energy in this gun? I have no idea, first time.

Sorry to be such a newb, it's a perpetual affliction..... 🍻
Yes I UTFS....
