I pulled it up, twisted my head, adjusted my glasses, tried everything that seemed reasonable and could not get the sights lined up properly. The high comb on the stock absolutely prevented it from happening. Perhaps someone else can make it work but, not I. The 2500 Carbine apparently has a rear stock with a lower comb which may work. With the 2500 and the 2500 500 cc it seems to be scopes only. Good place to mention that the 2500 500 cc has an adjustable comb height, I find a good fit, for scope use, with it in the lowest position.Two probes are shipped with the gun to allow filling the reservoir from different air sources. Straight Shooters provided an adapter to allow the use of a Benjamin Discovery pump with the Eun Jin gun. When I started to assemble the probe and the adapter the threads would engage but only allow a half turn before becoming impossible to finger turn. With my luck if I just put wrenches on there will be a wrong part and I will ruin the parts, so wait till Friday AM and call. Kevin says they don't remember the answer to that question as they only assembled one set of stuff for testing. But they told me to put the wrench to my parts and they would start testing and shipping replacements just in case. So the end of that was they didn't have to ship replacements and I started pumping.And pumping and pumping. Gotta stop pumping and drive to the foothills for woodcutting and target proctice. Get done driving and drag the Sumatra out for a couple of shots using 2000 psi. Hit the pine cone at 15 yds without adjusting the scope. Back to pumping. I'm determined to get up to 3000 psi. When I take a break and bleed the air out of the pump & hose it then takes about 20 strokes to get the pressure in the hose back up to the pressure that will force more air into the reservoir. As the pressure gets past 2500 psi my scrawny 170# self has to bounce on the pump handle to force air into the reservoir. Finally, 3000 psi!! Shoot about 12 shots and tweak the scope some. Have vowed not to let the pressure get too low. Have also vowed to get a tank setup before Cedarville or Wyoming. Shooting is more fun than pumping! Except I kept thinking about squirting that hard earned air out the end of the barrel. Shot two six shot groups with some old Wasp pellets. Made scope adjustments between groups yet, groups overlaid each other. First shot was close to point of aim yet subsequent shots shifted to right. Retightened mounts for next trial. Groups were shot at 38 yds.
