Here is a link to an 18 second utube video, shot fred at 11 seconds.

Is this common with a new one?

Most do. Every now and then I get one out of the box that doesn't but it's a rarity.

Thanks, Mercy,Fingers Crossed!

The video I was viewing hen I was running late for dinner is pretty interesting and informative..(to me).

Its done using the HW95 Luxus overseas unit (lighter spring?) and 14mins long and pretty well done.
I would love it if you would have a look at (least the piston & spring comparison and comments at the 13:00mins 00:sec mark)and give your thoughts.

He shows the date on the box to be a 10/06/14 unit.

At the 8:min 10:sec mark he has them broke down and starts comparing everything.

Perhaps at least you could jump to the 13:min00:sec section at the end where he looks at the spring and then the piston once more commenting on something he missed.
There is a thick spacer (he ponders it may be an acting top hat) and an o-ring he is not sure about. Is this for the overseas units only?
And he comments on better looking spring ends.

I realize you most likely know all this by heart without seeing it. And your time is valuable. But if you like here is the link,

Correct. It's a lower power setup than what is sold here.
