    Hello there,

    A new member here looking for advice.

    I just received my FX Crown .22 Synthetic on Wednesday July 11, 2018.

    Today was my third days shooting it.

    I was shooting the 18 gr set at "Max" and was getting 870 fps.

    Accuracy was getting better in the past couple of days with my zero at 50 yards.  I had a short two hours plinking today and trying to shoot out to 80 yards with 18 then switched to 25.4 gr to see how the grouping was.  I got shotgun pattern and POI was up and down the target page.  I was surprised with the POI shift but decided to call it a day.

    Here is my question that I need help with.

    I was putting my FX into my gun locker from my case at night and I noticed there was a rattle sound from picking up the gun.  I shook it back and forth to see what was making the noise.  It sounded like something was sliding back and forth behind the Hammer Spring wheel.  So I took the gun apart following Youtube video instruction.

    Here is what I found.  The little piece of block as shown (I am using the pic by Tomcat for illustration) is moving freely back and forth.  I checked the spring underneath and it doesn't appear to be broken, at least not what I could see.  But the "hammer block" wasn't pressing on the spring at all.  I would imagine the spring would have some tension on the "hammer block", shouldn't it?

    I don't know if the gun is broken or not until I test it over the chrony tomorrow, but in the meantime please advise and let me know if the sliding block is normal.

    I will need to call my dealer and see if that is normal or something had gone wrong with my 4 days old Crown!

    Thank you in advance for any input.

    Yes the sliding is normal. Its free floating hammer. But when you cock de rifle it should stop sliding. But its normal.. happy shooting.

    The POI shifting from 18g to 25g is normal, and some .22 STX liner don’t like the new 25g or not as accurate.

    Happy shooting Alpine. What cal is your Crown? And what FPS n pellet weight? Where are u at? 

    thanks Sniper. I need to shoot more to learn more about my new tool.

    i will have to rename my Crown to “Crow”  as I tagged a crow which, bad timing, landing on a tree 35 yards away right after I zeros the gun at 40 yards.

    my Crown claimed its first victim, lol

    cheers

    Able to do some chrony tests and speed is where it was before. The rattling sound disappeared once the gun is cocked as Alpine pointed out.

    all is good. Thank you.
