So I am new to pump and have read that on snipers you need to sweet spot the reg. so it is at its best. Please explain I would like to do it this weekend. Thanks in advance.

Turn up your reg over the chrono until the FPS stops increasing by taking a couple shots every quarter turn. Eventually you'll reach a point where the FPS starts to decrease even though you're increasing the reg pressure. Once you reach that peak, don't touch your reg, and instead chrono to the field limit with the IVG.

When I am sweetspotting any cocker pump (what the Empire sniper is) I usually turn my IVG in about 2.5-3 turns.

Gives me a good range of adjustment in both directions after I have sweetspotted the marker
