    Had a good session with my 80 this afternoon after havng it in bits quite a lot. I have it zeroed at 18 yards with RWS Hobbys and can hit 1" spinner alright. Happy with that.

    Thanks guys. Yes she's a .22
    Glad to get it running smoothly at last. Fitted a Chambers service kit (tophat spring guide new spring etc) but it wasn't running right. Openned it up to find the spring guide wedged in at a slight angle. So drilled it out and refitted the original steel one. While I was at it I put a milk carton piston sleeve in too. Now cocking and firing cycles are smooth. Nice. Only 9ftlbs though... which is fine for opens at 15 to 20 yards but I might make a power washer to experiment.

    At that range power is fine but of you wish to stretch it out I'd say around 11fpe with something like H&N FTT

    Yeah... Agreed @mikeyhall1
    She used to run at around 10.9 with Superdomes before I took it to bits but kicked like a mule. I forgot to test it with H&Ns today. I think the chambers spring seems to have a little less grunt. Also the piston sleeve was a gnats knadger tighter than ideal. It'll wear in a thought. This is my open sight shooter so I'm not after masses of power. Would rather it ran smoothly. Aye.

    30s seem to be all the rage on the forum at the moment! I can see why. :)

    I put a Chambers kit in my Xocet and it was down like yours, took it apart and I’d damaged the piston seal. Replaced that and it was over. Had been firing 9ft/lb before. Replaced the original spring with chambers top hat, guide and pre-load and it’s at 11.7 and sweet as a nut (for an Xocet) and pretty darn accurate.

    Good to hear you got it running right. The seal looked fine on this one the other day so I don't think it's that in this instance. I think maybe Chambers are over cautious with the output of the springs they supply.

    Just checked what I bought... It was the "standard mainspring" so I took that to mean it was a HW original equipment spring but I don't think it can be. Perhaps a Titan would have been better. I think it's the no2 Titian for an 80... ?
