Hi. Glad you have sorted it out It sounds as if you have ony just shortened the spring enough. If your comment "shooting hard is anything to go by. Can I suggest you have her chronoed. My club standard was "shooting hard" In fact a real teeth banging crash and shooting at very nearly the legal limit. I slowly reduced the springs coil by coil untill it is now at just over 7ftlb and it's transformed the whole gun she is now sweet and accurate.
