I found my old Gamo Shadow 1000 in a corner in the garage. Was pretty rusted up and the scope didnt survive being mounted to a springer. Cleaned the rust up and installed the new trigger I ordered that everyone seemed to be raving about...and I see why, huge difference, and so much better. Stock trigger felt awful. Dont think I'll be using a scope on this one anymore, they just dont last, must order some new iron sights, although even with no sights, its still shooting better than it was before with the scope and stock trigger.

Some PCPs when filled to the higher pressures will increase shot velocity for a few shots, tend to level off for a dozen or so before dropping off as pressure falls past the sweet spot.

Fill them up to the max, the velocity is at first lower, then it rises up as the pressure reaches the sweet spot, then you get a bunch of consistent shots until you drop pressure below the sweet spot.

But, the better guns have regulators, these give a more consistent shot, broaden the sweet spot quite a lot. You can get aftermarket regulators, they are sold on ebay, well the UK version anyway.
