A friend that's not on here much has one. I've shot it a few times. Not bad till the barrel gets hot.

Just an update. I shot the above rifle again today. It's cool and I found out that he had written a great write up on the gun here.
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1151&start=10

Everything he says about the gun is spot on. 3"+ group at 50 yds is typical. The one thing I noticed today that I didn't remember is the wonky trigger. It's a bit stiff. Smoothness is not too bad. But it has this weird spring loaded reset that reminded me of a toy cap gun when we were kids. it's like every squeeze is Bang, Boing! Bang, Boing!

I’ll be playing with mine shortly. Trying to put together a package with a scope in QD rings that can go on and off with little tinkering.
