Reply To: HW95 Prep Before Shooting
It is expected/normal for a new springer to diesel when its brand new. The scant amount of factory lube that remains in the compression cylinder self ignites from the pressure spike of the piston. May take 20, 50, or 200 shots or so……..but eventually it will burn off and settle in. It will then be more accurate and much quieter. Just shoot it and have fun for 200 or 300 rounds.
