You'll have to get to the hammer spring...which can be an challenge :) You need to remove the block in which the rear bottle screws. It should pretty much speak for itself on how to remove and reassemble it, but for the love of $deity, be careful with the brass tube.

Well...

If you remove that thingie in which the bottle screws and look into the butt of the rifle, you'll likely see a bigass nut with a hole for an alan key. If you give that a turn (might be loctited, so break that first) the hammer spring gets more tension, ergo, you get more power. Presto! Just do it carefully and stay on the legal side of things!

I really need to lower my power and have no clue why it is over...

No worries, if you want to remove the block, just unscrew it...But there is a trick. The block is secured to the rear side of the rifle via a small allen screw....inside a small hole. If remember correctly it must be a 3mm or a 2mm allen screw.
Before you unscrew make sure you make distance measurements, so you may assembly your rifle correctly again.
