This is my first post to this forum, and I am looking for some guidance. I just acquired a GAMO CFX, and after reading a number of the posts in this forum, I am realizing that there is more to airgunning than just an airgun and pellets. You gotta love an activity that lets you tweak and improve your equipment like a lot of shooters in this forum are doing.
I got the CFX for shooting indoors this winter to help me be ready for next year's 22 rimfire silhouette shoots. So far I am finding that airgunning is more than I realized and may turn into a whole new avocation for me. The Field Trial shooting sounds especially fun. Of course if I stay involved in airguning, I will probably have to upgrade to another air rifle! Who knows? So many choices and so little time!
But back to my original subject. I read about people upgrading and doing tunes and installing aftermarket springs and seals, but I am having trouble finding places that sell the moly (that is grease, isn't it?) and all of the other things for a GAMO CFX.
Could someone point me in the right direction or give me some websites to peruse? Also, on tunes, I read about them quite a bit, and I have see the following question posed in several different forms, but is there a place that lists in a step by step process how to actually do a tune and what kind of moly and oils to use on what different parts, and what to replace or upgrade?
Thanks for any help on this subject.
One more question, are there any Field Trial shoots that take place in central Illinois?
I have seals they are OEM type from crossman, I have used the Hornet seal ($13.50) and the Apex ($7.95) and can find no advantage to them so I went to the crossman ($3.00 )and have had no problems.
If they are installed and fitted corectly they all seal the chamber.
Maybe there are no off the shelf pellets that shoot worth a damn in YOUR CFX, but mine seems happy to devour the Crosman Premier Hollow Points and spits them out nicely. Under $6 for 500, getting 7/8" groups at 40 yards with the 4x Sportview AO scope. Serial number is on the top of the barrel, which you stated was less fussy. I got these pellets at Wally Mart, they were on a peg above a shelf.
