This may be a dumb question but why is there any recoil at all on the disco when all other pcp's dont have any?
Im just curious, only thing i can think of is the hammer coming forward?

It's modest, for sure, but everything except a gun like the RWS75 or the Wizzers will have recoil backwards to match of the same momentum of the pellet going forward.....Newton says that's gotta happen.
I figure it's like the Marauder. Release the trigger and the gun goes back as the hammer goes forward, then it goes forward when the hammer hits, then back again as the pellet goes up the bore. I find if I don't put a little bit of back pressure on the stock it seems to come off my shoulder at just the wrong instant by a bit and the groups open up. Sitting on bags you don't notice it.
The Discovery, being lighter, should have even more recoil velocity.
