GL1000 Compression

Post by Smudge »



Hi, I am looking at buying a GL1000 however the compression readings are:

165 psi
165 psi
160 psi
157 psi

What are your thoughts to theses, I read that the normal should be 171 psi

TIA

That compression is plenty high enough and consistent enough for me. Those numbers are very good for an ole GL1000. If that was the only holdup I would buy it.
