I have several springers of different makes and they all need attention and then they shoot ok. It's just the way it's done that bugs me. Like a trigger assembly still being made from sheet metal and being bent as all get out, Hand ground slots to get the trigger pins to mount with big burrs hanging on each cut, very sloppy parts with major creep and a total uncertainty of when through out its travels it will fire! I didn't pay 500 for mine and only paid 300 but it still is a joke. Then my airgun is totally burred and the piston destroyed in 50 rounds. Out of spite because I do not trust sending anything to a company that would send it out to the public this way to begin with, tells me, no way in hell! I'll get it back the same way. I knew I could deal with it and turn it into a project gun. I hate to do that right off the bat with a brand new airgun but if I wanted to keep that power plant to play with I felt it was best for me to just keep it and do it myself. So I hope to make a really nice gun out of it. I'm starting with the insides and going to through every single piece including honing it, building a dampening system, better guides, polishing and possibly porting. I have lots of work ahead and headed down a few new roads so I'm sure before it's all over I may have done something else.
