Sir, The trigger weight can be reduced by fitting in a screw-driver through the hole in the end cap and turning the screw inwards. It can be brought down to as light as you want, and I request you to turn the screw only half of complete turn at a time and fire off a shot to see if the weight is right for you.
I know I am asking the next question too early but I am eager to know whether precihole piston seal fits in Artemis?
If only you had asked the question a little earlier!! I had disassembled the rifle today to change the spring.I think it should fit, but will let you know after I actually swap the seals. The piston seal of the Artemis is quite durable nonetheless. Mine showed little deficiencies in performance only after 10,000 shots and quite a few dieseling shots that broke the sound barrier with 7.7 grain pellets.
Apart from master shot flat head which pellet is giving nice accuracy in your gun?
United shot flathead gives comparable performanceof MSFH upto 25 meters., and that is my mainstay plinking pellet. The 9.9 grain united shot pointed head and 8.7 grain precihole domes gives satisfactory performance upto 50 meters( 1" ctc at 30 meters and 2"-2.5" at 50 on most days, standing,offhand open sights). You may try united shot round head also, but it doesn't work well in my gun.
After how many shots your Artemis break in?
I had emptied a tin of 500 MSFH pellets within a week or two of buying the gun, and the gun broke-in completely during that period.I managed to get consistent accuracy within 50 shots, but the complete power-plant started working smoothly only after 500 shots.From then to now , through the course of some 15-16k shots, it is still in good condition, requiring only spring and washer transplantations.
