That's interesting Franky .
 I test the triggers on my rifles by giving them a few stout clouts with my hefty rubber mallet on the butt. Works for me.
I plink , therefore I am.

Abit more naval gazing involving a hw95 ....
 So chroneod the rifle a couple of weeks ago  after  a few thousand shots of hobbies since previous service.

 hobbies   11.8  640      +- 14fps  10.7ftlb
  fap         13.4  600     +-12        10.7
 s/domes  14.4  585     +- 14       10.9
  jsb16grn 16.0  548     +-8          10.6

 A real pleasure to shoot. :)

 So after a thorough degrease..  coated the spring, guides , piston and seal, piston rod with cheap 3in1 ptfe dry lube. No grease at all involved.

 So after about maybe a tin and half of rws pellets , chronoed it this afternoon.

 Hobbies  11.8  660   +- 6fps    11.4
 fap         13.4  610   +- 4        11.1
 s/domes 14.4   600  +-6          11.4
 jsb16grn 565    565  +-6         11.3

 So gained .7ftlb and it's very consistent for the time being.
 Feels harsh in comparison though . :(

 Next step is to lop off a coil or try a spare spring and  aim for 10.5 -10.7.
I plink , therefore I am.

Had a little plink with it this afternoon and , yes it does feel a little errm, what's the word ,maybe 'slammy' with hobbies . But with superdomes it feels fine and they're shooting very  tidy .
