I started to have a bit of a problem cocking the rifle after around 50 shots. The hammer was binding up a bit and was starting to really get hard to cock. I noticed that the hammer pin was very loose, so I made a new one that was tight fitting, problem solved so far. The hammer spring is quite strong so if the pin loosens up again I will make one that threads into the hammer.
I made the brass hammer cap a bit deeper than the oem one to elevate some of the spring tension and added a brass spring has not effected the power. It’s much smoother now.
I have around 100 shots thru it now and either my arm muscles are getting stronger or the rifle is just easier to pump because it’s broken in now.

Here’s a target I shot at 10m distanced,benched. Used a Sig Sauer Romeo5 with a 2moa dot.

I have read and also got some experience, that the order of torquing the 3 screws that hold the breach to the air tube is important or there could be some binding of the bolt. I don't remember what the order is off hand, but Google will let me know when time comes to do it again.
