I'm a little surprised... When I experimented with air strippers, accuracy was improved, and very noticeably so.
Roughly what area of holes are there compared to that of the main valve? You do need quite an excess, or results will be limited.
When I first did it, I used about 2 times the area - results were visible, but not great, so I adjusted it for about 5 times the valve's area worth of holes on the air stripper - at that point, the results were really noticeable.
With a large C:B ratio, that could set you back, so a large area will be essential for optimal results.
Next time I do it, as the big project I'm fiddling with is going to be at least three times as powerful as the cannon my current air stripper was designed for, I'm going for around 20 times the valve's area, and also an external redirector for recoil control (not reduction though) to stabilise the muzzle.
