Sometimes we get in a hurry when building/modding/tuning and it can be easy to overlook sometimes simple things that might produce less desired results, I am guilty of this...I tried many things to get better performance from my .375 lead ball gun, finally I took it all down and found this....I'd somehow mashed the poly tube from the valve to transfer port, and the bolt body "snubber" I replaced with a different one and neglected to measure if it lined up the opening in the bolt probe to the transfer in the barrel :roll: ......I did find a few other things that needed improving but these 2 were my biggest issues. I fixed the poly port and aligned the bolt probe hole to the transfer, smoothed and polished a few more parts and got my performance back to where it was before I got too greedy. I guess every now an then ya gotta wear a dogsh*t bowtie.... :rolleyes: A big thank you to PZAM who encouraged me to keep looking for the issue.

Glad to have been of some inspiration, it's too good a project to give up on easily!
