Since new, I've noticed my spring guide rattles around an awful lot. While walking around hunting it clinks and clanks when the rifle is tilted. Is it absolutely necessary to have the spring guide? It is not attached like some of the other ones I have seen on other brands of pcp rifles. Anyone recommend a way to make it quieter?

I removed mine. Not sure what they do except limit spring adjustment.

Good to know! Thank you sir. I also Got the problem of my bent barrel resolved thanks to Kim's and your advice and the various ways of checking it. Turns out my tank is mounted on a noticeable upward angle and that's what was giving the appearance of the barrel being crooked.

Odd that it should rattle. Most spring guides I've seen and made are captured at one end so they can't move around if there's any spring load. I guess the Lynx must do something different.

After what Walter said, I think it might be strictly for limiting the muzzle velocity of the rifle and not so much as a spring guide.
