I don't know if this is the correct place to ask this question?
Anyways, I opened up my HW80 today because it's been dieseling badly since I got it a few days ago and thought I'd clean out the cylinder and piston seal. Now don't get me wrong, I like the rifle, but in comparison to the LGV that I have the insides were in a state. There was rust inside of the gun(along the spring guide and a lot on the end cap), grease everywhere and it just reeked of shoddy workmanship.
I have a kit coming my way from the UK with a new spring guide to replace the steel spring guide which is also totally loose inside of the spring. I was impressed to see that the piston was sleeved, and I like the trigger mechanism.
I just wondered if any of you guys have experienced the same or if I got a lemon?
After today I think I'll be ordering the V Mach kit for the 80 along with potentially taking the piston to a friend who has a lathe to button the piston.
I'd like to get it shooting as accurately as possible.
If you guys have any experience and can make recommendations as to what would benefit the rifle most I'd greatly appreciate it.
