    The make of gun might help some of the resident experts to offer an opinion.

    i think the fact that this is in the steyr forum might lead you to a clue? ;)

    ive found that the diy mods to stop the ringing noise are of detriment to the way the gun shoots so suggest leave it.
    there is one mod that stops it thats good and thats to convert it to external power adjuster but for this youll need a new hammer, spring, adjuster and for optimum performance make sure youve got an 85 bar reg.
    cheers.

    Totaly agree with Rich, the best method in every way, however not the cheapest.
    Parts are easily available Paul, you know.

    Already have an external power adjuster fitted. The odd thing is that it only makes the noise sometimes, other times just sounds normal. It doesn't make any difference to POI or power when the sound does change, but I would like to know what's going on to try and stop it.

    It's been apart and everything is clean and free moving internally.

    Just an update.

    The odd noise that I get sometimes on firing has been identified. It seems to be nothing to do with the action at all. I use a very long sunshade, and the sound is actually caused by the muzzle blast from the air stripper being directed backwards into the mouth of the sun shade.

    Oh well, no dramas then :D:D

    Was it doing it today Paul as I though I heard it. I put it down to my imagination.

    Thanks for the go of your pistol by the way.

    Yes mate, it does it depending on the accoustics of the surroundings. Doesn't do it all the time, and sometimes is more pronounced than others.

    Just stuff the sunshade full of foam, that should do the trick! ;):D

    Try changing the harmonics of the sunshade by using something around the outside of it. A ring of elects tape, foam, an old sock.

    I have just got some thin dense foam sheet to line the shade with, never had chance to fit it before today though. Hopefully it will cut down on reflective glare as well.
