    shoot her for a bit Doz, let her settle... 101 opinions on what's best but i'd do it bit by bit and just get the stock etc going first...

    I'd just strip it down, clean the factory grease off and relube sparingly. Put a few tins through it and take it from there.

    ...is the correct answer.

    If you then want a very low cost modification, then simply replacing the piston weight with an acetal top hat, and preloading the spring at the guide to 35mm will reduce recoil by 10% and take 0.8 milliseconds off the shot cycle to pellet exit.

    It being a TX, it takes 7 minutes to strip and 7 minutes to reasemble.

    If mine had been a HW I would have lost intrest in it long ago.

    The pleasure of a springer is trying different configuration's until you find what's right for you and learning on the way.

    I've put well over a thousand hours into mine to get it "perfect" for me.

    If you get someone else to set your gun up, they will set it up for themselves which may not be right for you!

    Play around with it and enjoy it.

    Reading with interest as i have one coming soon too.

    I plan on simply stripping it down/cleaning and greasing it, then shooting it... Alot. Can't wait!

    Someone once said that the single best thing you can do to a springer is to cut 8” off the barrel...
    ...so it fits into the bin much easier!
