Finally got enough $ to order a new FX revolution from A.O.A. Got it mounted with a Leupold ultra light 3x9. Second time out at the dairy after only getting 14 pigeons and 1 squirrel, it jammed! I can't remove the magazine and it won't fire. I'm afraid there might be more than one pellet stuck in the barrel.So now it's back in the box waiting to start the long trip back to Arizona. I hope it returns soon and in good shape - I think I was actually making a dent in the pigeon population. :o

I have the Mrod and it is a great gun. You will NOT break it. Clean the barrel real good and shoot a variety of pellets to see which one it likes to shoot. Then only shoot that one. There are thousands of people shooting that gun and most people love it. Have fun and enjoy the ride. Mine is a .22 caliber.Murph.

Ac-mood; I have that gun and at first I had the same problem. I used a long slim dowel and forced the pellets backward. I can only shoot the 14.3 Crosman Hollow Points. Available at Wally World for $6.97 for 500 pellets. I did have to send my Revolution back because it was shooting automatic. On a public range, not a good idea. Police frown on automatic anything.Good luck, Murph.

I went to a single feed mag with the Marauder so I would double up again after doing it once. Easy to do.

Thats what I dont like about the fx revo or maybe many air rifles that mag feed the ammo in line like that. I wonder if u removed the mag while still locked n loaded, then when u re mount the mag, it chambers another round? There's no extractor like on powder actuated rifles that must eject each casing before reloading. Since the bolt must travel through the mag, mag cant be removed without charging the bolt, whether its already locked n loaded or not.

I have a new habit of punching the barrel through using a 3/16"ø brass brazing rod with a .22 cal pellet soldered to the tip. I punch it all the way through, daylight to daylight, to be sure nothings chambered before loading it with a full mag. I do it before first lad, after its been out of use or out of sight for some time.

I was having a major problem losing that o-ring where the bolt punches through with the new round. Man! I was pissed off the first time it happened, at like, 1:45pm on a Saturday, just a couple weeks after I got it. By the time I called AOA, I had just missed them. So I left a meltdown message expressing my displeasure. They were very prompt with their return call, 2days later. They explained about the o-ring and put a couple dozen in the mail to me. By the time I got them, I had already lost 2 more of my own. Must have burned through about 5 more of theirs before I was able to identify and resolve the problem. Ill post about it once I go through the forums here to make sure im not stepping on anyone else's post on the subject.
