the under lever is relieved on the mk 3 to allow extra travel .

i'm gonna have to do that on this old mk2 donkey.....tyring to get max stroke out of it for small bore pistons .

heard of another 22mm that was running at around 120g very soft to shoot but hard on springs.
that was apparently running hw45 seal , dunno if para or not , deffo skirted piston .

i must say i'm leaning toward o ring set up at the moment .

simply looking for consistency over widest temp range .......that's it .
cant be doing with huge poi shifts it has been an issue and very much temp related .
don't even care if i have to run so loose that it twangs a bit .
sure i can run tight guides and splodge the whole thing in grease to deaden it but that just introduces to many variables
shot feel is secondary at the moment , although i ve got a feeling that will follow to a degree with an efficient set up.

got some testing to do.............
