if you want to smooth it out...

use the stock spring, they are OK. I use stock springs and seals in my CFX to acheive a "soft tune".

The quality of the firing cycle has nothing to do with the spring, it has to do with tightening up the internal tolerances and proper lubrication.

The stock spring is easy to get. Call crosman. They have them and are cheap. I have many springs and one that I think is stock if need be . Let me know !

Me thinks...

G1 is same action as Quest, Summit, Gamos. A Maccari e3650 will give you a smoother shot than the stock spring which I bet if you pulled it apart you would see a kinked spring. I used the e3650 in my Big Cat with excellent results. I think I also used the Small Apex seal.

I also had a few Tarantula springs laying around so I put one in a Quest I'm working on right now. WOW. It took CPLs from 840 stock spring up to 1150 fps with the Tarantula. I will end up shooting CPHs with this thing!

I don't know the exact specs but I do know the Tarantula uses a much bigger diameter wire than the e3650.

I would get a fitted guide...

if you don't get a properly fitted guide you're going to have a harsh shot cycle no matter what spring and seal you use.

Use the link at the top to contact "Rich in Mich", he'll fix you up with a proper guide. He has a solid reputation and a huge following of happy customers around these forums.

Andy... about Maccari spring

November 21 2009, 11:08 PM 


When using Maccari e3650 spring, do you put spacer as suggested by Maccari?

Nope

I didn't feel a spacer was needed. Here's a pic of 5 shots off hand at 15 yards. I'll hunt up a 20+ yard group comparison of my TX to the BC.

Put it all together

Finally, I have time to put together the new Piston seal, the Maccari e3650 spring, Maccari lube with a touch of dri-slide. Turn a $32 used Gamo Shadow 1k into a quiet and accurate gun.
