    A friend has this on his 110. Shows nothing silly on chrono, barrel is floated. He finds if he fills to no more than 180bar, it doesn't do it.
    It shouldn't do it, but does....airguns eh

    When does it stop doing it? Does it settle after so many shots. Chrono it when its doing it then let us know. Had same problem once. Check blanking plug in end of reg hasn't come loose.

    Just make sure the nylon pressure pad has also been removed.

    I had a go with this Steyr. The poi changed when the cylinder was removed for filling and then refitted.
