Try to see if your pump arm is twisted, sometimes it gets twisted and causes your backblock to sit funny. It does this becuase of the curve in the arm.

no you just dont set the backblock flush with the body, get it flush then back it off one turn

Yeah, there is sappsed to be a rubber piece on the cocknig rod, so it doesnt hit the backblock metal to metal.

its fine, mine is twisted a little bit with no air but when i screw in my tank it straightens out. I wouldn't worry to much about it, if it becomes a problem take it to the pro shop.

Mine doesnt turn or move when shooting. But without air on i can swing it back and forth. It still performs fine though.

I had this porblem once, it was because my cocking rod was slightly bent, i must have done it when i was cleaning but they are easily bent back

i had the same problem, what i did was unscrew the backblock and push in the cocking rod all the way and just screwed the backblock all the way in until it wouldnt hit the back of the body
