I got this gun from Mrmarvin about a day ago.

specs:

trigger: SA or DA with a hefty 9 LB pull
cal: .177 cal BBs or flat pellets
velocity: 120 MPS
powerplant: CO2
capacity: 28 round
barrel: rifled
safety: lever
number of shots with one CO2 canister: 75

Good points:

-very realistic
-powerful
-heavy
-good number of shots per powerlet
-accurate
-large magazine
-easy to disassemble

bad points:

-comes with orange tip in north america
-picky about the type of pellet used
-trigger pull in DA is very heavy
-slide tends to jam when used to cock gun
-my gun tends to jam alot (cannot be cocked)
-slide is a pinch hazard(hurts like hell when your hand gets caught in the slide) :oops:


overall, this gun is very well made but there is still the problem with the jamming..........

You should always do some online searching and some research before you make any purchase.
Ask someone who owns one is always best.
My nephew purchased one and he found the same problems you have.
He sold his fast enough.

Just my 2 cents worth.

With my nephews gun we tried everything we could to fix the jaming.
Even had some friends help. One man has repaired airguns for over 40 years and he gave up.
After asking around on other forms we found that the jaming is a major problem and is seldon corrected with any success.
Perhaps you will have better luck.

Perhaps, but I kinda doubt it. Let me quote B. B. Pelletier's words : " The double-action trigger-pull of 12 to 15 lbs. is about as bad as it gets. Not only do you have to advance those 28 plastic tubes inside the magazine each time you pull the trigger, but the way the gun works is that the barrel is also the hammer! It moves forward as the trigger is pulled until it finally slips off the sear. Under spring tension, it slams backwards into a hole in the magazine. The back of the barrel slams into a plastic tubular pellet holder and rams it backwards through another hole in the magazine into the firing valve, forcing it open. The pellet or BB is then pushed forward through the moving barrel by the force of the gas exhausting from the valve. It must have sounded neat to the drunken designers when they first thought of it at the fraternity kegger, but it works about as smoothly as a frozen caulking gun! It also has a single-action feature, but that sort of defeats the purpose of having 28 shots...no?"

There's unconventional or progressive design and then there is just klutsie? design :roll:
