Response to Likely wound up too tight.
BobD may respond here, he put up some of the best tuning info for the AA/CZ platform. Only way I could get a 177 near 20 ft lbs was to take the air cylinder apart (very hard if it is factory and never been apart) and remove what is called the 'pot' inside. It is kind of like a simple regulator. Other than that, tuning the CZ involves both the hammer spring tension AND the air strangle screw. You need to adjust both. And yes, I agree... just heavy hammer spring tension alone is as for trouble. HTH.
