Quick question, almost got my baby finished.

I've sunk everything possible into the rifle...only stock parts are the RIS rails, bolt handle, and receiver (I even have the PDI one, I'm just too lazy to sand it). I've even replaced the mag catch and all those small internal parts you don't think about
Using .43 madbulls, swapped my inner barrel for promo, and it's shooting with a good amount/consistency of hop with a TM bucking (finally)...that might change, but I'm good for now.

My last question until I get back in the field is: I bought the parts for a laylax cylinder set separately and assembled/installed them, and my cylinder is still picky about how it catches on the piston sear when I pull it all the way back. There's a technique to it that works, but if it's not pulled straight back strongly, it won't lock in and will retain tension. Is this anything to be concerned about? I've really only noticed this recently because of my weakened condition after surgery.

I'm using a zero trigger, by the way. I replaced the screws, etc. and it's anchored firmly, with the piston sear engaged. There is no wear on any of the parts concerned.

Zero trigger isn't brand new, but it's relatively new
Already did all of the above to the cylinder.

It doesn't stick at the back and then slam forward if the trigger is pulled or when it's pushed, if you're confusing it with that problem. The problem is if I pull the cylinder back with a small amount of force (slowly, angled force, etc.) it never "clicks" at the full extension. I assume that's the piston sear?

The sear you were talking about that sticks in the upright position, are you talking a trigger sear?
No wear on piston sear. Guide rod is a 9mm laylax with all spacers (1 shim+2 washers) on it
I'm sure Livonia and you are both experienced, which is why I said it's a matter of opinion. Heat got into the discussion because that's what allows a real barrel to break in, which parallels airsoft.

Let's not make this into an argument.
Anyway, thanks for all the help
Sounds good embed. I'm using allen/hex screws too, so they're tighter than a fully threaded phillips. I actually just lost the looser of one of the black screws holding one of the tiny gold plates the screws go into, but they're not exactly necessary...anyway, it's opened up so I can try that out any time.
Yeah I was going to get flathead but you've gotta take what you can get with sizes that small.
I've kept as much stock/standard aftermarket parts as I can
