Balance is important

Response to Spring Guns and Scope Weight

"Could it be more of an issue with balance than weight?"

From my limited testing and experience over the last year, I believe that balance in very important in a piston gun. If you have a heavy scope, you need some firmly mounted weight below the receiver. If I can balance it so that the CG of the rifle is along the piston axis, my hold sensitivity is reduced greatly.
