Hi guys - here's my 1st silly question:
I got my air rifle (CZ S200S) a few months ago and everything has been going great. Ordered an AA 10 round mag system from BAR and got a friend to bring it over for me. It works fantastically!! Well worth the money.
I have been shooting JSB Fields, and they have been working a treat. I decided to try out the Crosman Accupells recently. They seem to be accurate enough, but on loading they appear to "stick" when you push the bolt forward. This is in contrast to the JSB's which loaded very smoothly. I attributed this to the different pellet design of the Accupells which have a larger/thicker "lip".
Today I loaded a pellet which required quite a lot of pressure on the bolt to load it - ie it seemed to be more sticky than some of the others. Anyway, fired it and thought that was it. However, after that it sounds like the gun is noisier than before when firing. It kind-of sounds the same as when on the odd occasion, the bolt jumps up just as you shoot - as if some air is escaping out the loading area instead of being forced down the barrell.
I am sure there is a seal or o-ring somewhere which I have damaged, but have no clue where. I don't want to start stripping things without having an idea of what I'm doing. Do you guys have any advice for me?
Hope I have described things accurately - but if not I will be happy to clarify things if you lead me in the right direction.
BTW - this is an excellent site - keep up the fun environment and educational posts. i am learning something new every day
