I ordered two seals and tw0 springs for the CF-X. The springs are .128 wire so they should tolerate the Kodiaks. I'll disassemble, degrease, deburr, clean, polish, wash, dry, lube, measure shrink-tune and otherwise pamper the gun and see what I can get out of it.

I'm looking forward to it. Probably two weekends for the project at the rate I do things but who knows.

I will be looking for help. This weekend will be diassembly, degreasing deburring, measuring, general assessment, documenting and photographing for public record. Once I know what I'm into I'll be looking for advice. I have it out of the stock right now and it looks straight forward but I won't underestimate the job.

I like the rifle, ESPECIALLY W/Kodiaks @ 16fpe. I've already taken everybodies advice on the Hornet seal and spring. I was pleasantly surprised, when ordering, that it was .128 wire diameter cuz I'm shoot'in heavies.

P.S. I'll email you this weekend. TIA

If you don't mind.... That sounds like a good spring. Thanks.

from the inside diameter and then I'll have to heat shrink and lube as I am in no position to make a tophat. The washer sounds like a good idea. I'm sure I'll get a lot of great tips here.

I'd appreciate any information anyone can send me re: tuning a CFX. I like the way it shoots as is, but would definitely have it tuned for imporvement.

thanks -

Another metric O-Ring supplier – and other small parts.

Good afternoon Gentleman - Dan and I will be joining in on the GFX performance and
accuracy tune soon and will contribute as much as we can as we listen in on your
progress. This is going to be our first attempt with our CFX’s.

Small Parts, Inc. is a good supplier for small parts and can handle small orders.
They produce a hard copy catalog and I find it handy to have around.
