Response to Installed the new seal and this is what I found

First and most obvious is it's gonna detract from power. Just as a rough guestimate figure 3" stroke length (1/4ft) times 10lbs comes out to 2.5 fpe loss of power. That in itself might make the gun feel smoother. The other thing, is with a tight seal you may get too much "squeegee" effect and scrape most/all the lube off the sides of the comp tube. Just pay attention to things while wearing in and watch out for a squeaky seal.
