Can a pt tauras co2 powered airsoft gun be ajusted?

I don't know what you mean by ajusted, but the power of it can definitely not be adjusted (in any airsoft pistol I have ever heard of) unless you buy new parts for higher gas flow, and the hop-up probably can't (if I am looking at the same gun you are). The sights also cannot be adjusted, if that is what you meant (again, if I am looking at the same one you are).

How do you make a really high powered airsoft gun?

You mean you want a superb fps? In AEG, you can change the spring to the hardest spring you can have (i.e. M160 or M170). You should have a reinforced gearbox, metal piston & piston head, stainless cylinder, change the gears inside your gearbox to a reinforced one, have a high powered motor, and a good LiPo battery. In GBB, you can have a stronger gas (black gas or red gas). It means you should have metal slide and metal outer barrel. Oh yeah, you should have at least 0.28 or 0.3 gr BBs. Btw, you want to PLAY airsoft or you want to HURT somebody with it? Remember, play safe and fun is our purpose in playing airsoft.
