I got my CFX back from Rich last night, after he had done a custom tune on it for me.
This is the sequence of events / things I saw upon opening the box:

1. the new custom muzzle break looks awesome.
2. The carbon look on the barrel took me some time to get used
to, but I have to admit that now I like, it gives the rifle a “trick”
look.
3. It also looks a lot “cleaner” with the sites off.

Now for the stuff that matters:

1. The rifle cocks very smoothly. You cannot even begin to compare it to
how it was before
2. The loading block, a lot improved here:
a. It turns / rotates very easily and very smoothly now
b. The pellets literally just “drop” into the barrel now too after
the loading channel was polished and widened.
c. I can immediately feel when the loading block catches a pellet now
because of how much easier it rotates.
d. It no longer over-rotates, this is great. I never realized that it
bugged me till it stopped doing it hehe!
3. The trigger, it is super light now, took some getting used to not
having to pull the "door spring". All it takes now is a gentle
squeez....... like it should be.
4. Did I mention how quite it is now
5. FPS is up around 100fps more.
6. very consistent now too. Tight groups are easier.

Rich this rifle is Awesome, thank you very much.

Roald.

PS I'll post pics of the rifle with the custom muzzle break... looks sweet!
and the chrony results - it gained almost 100fps !

I'll be tricking mine out with some of his bling soon also.

This is everything that Rich did in the service:

With the tune you get a new JM E2000 mainspring and custom fitted front and rear guides to that spring,
clean and polish all moving parts,
replace piston seal if needed,
dissemble the trigger and set it up for a true two stage operation,
custom six inch muzzle brake, Rich gave me a custom 9" muzzle break, see pics.
re machine the loading block for a standard "O" ring. (and fixed over rotation)

Before and after testing is done and the results are included with the rifle
and all old parts replaced are returned.

Here's some shots of the rifle / Muzzle break. You can really tell it's size when the CFX is along side the RWS 350 and 1250.
Note the carbon finish on the break. Sweet
The last Pic is the groups I got after re-mounting the scope, while sat on a garden chain in my back yard at 18 yards
(pardon the few fliers.... I'm still training my finger to use the new trigger (they are numbered 1st to 3rd and were
done while setting the scope )

all I need now is a better scope for the 350 hehe!

Thanks, The spring is great, hard to tell for sure now, but it seems to
have a bit more cocking resistance, but with Rich's new guides and lube
job it's cocks so much smoother now it's hard to tell.
I love the sound of the gun firing now too, it's just a air crack
with a "thunk" in stock, no vibration at all.
It hits way harder now too. The pellets penetrate the 2X4 beam I use
to stick my targets to so deep now, you can't even see them down the hole.
They are a good 1/4" deeper now.
I'll foam fill the stock too soon. It'll be nice and solid after that.
