    I was on a month or so ago about the JSB Exacts #7541517 3 4.52. I had stated they were crap, but I was totally wrong. It was the shooter that was crap. After some scope adjusting and a little practice, that I'd been lacking over the last couple of years, the pellets are very good indeed. I had a little evening session and there was pretty much no wind that I could feel. 10 shots inside an inch at 55 yards. If I could throw out the obvious pulled shot, it would be 9 inside 5/8ths inch. Now I just need to carry this over to our little FT get together. We shoot 30 shot matches on Saturdays and the last 2 have me with 51 hits in total. That's with 93 mm stroke and just under 12 ft. lbs. from the basically factory TX. If you can't tell, I'm a happy boy.:D

    As always good gear needs a good pilot.
    I’ve tried many rifles over the years where the owner is dispairing that ‘it’s all over the shop’ and I’ve found them fine.
    The biggest problem I see time and time again is lack of trigger control and follow through.
    Get this one fundamental right and already you’re well on the way to becoming more consistent.

    I expect there are refinements to be made in the 3 major ( very similar ) springer triggers

    Very true, get something like an Anschutz trigger in a springer and I think it would be a winner.
    Of course it's not as simple as that as by design a springer holds back the piston and a PCP just holds back a hammer, but refine the springer so that it has a similar hammer system releasing the piston indirectly and I think it would be on the right track.

    I was trying to be funny with the "recant" line.

    I've shot quite a few pcp's and I think my triggers are very close to some. This particular TX trigger was tuned by Jan Kraner, a well know tuner in the U.S. I bought the gun used and it was already done, but I can say Jan knows how to tune a TX trigger. I have it set at 3.5 to 4oz. and no noticeable creep in the second stage. I tried a Pro Target that was better as well as a Daystate CRX. I say better, but I mean they had a lighter let off while still having a functioning first and second stage. You get what you pay for when it comes to triggers.
