I was at the range yesterday and this what I found. The Tormneta bolt is about 10 mm square, the pellet probe is the only part that is round and considerably smaller .177. When you pull the bolt back the pellet probe pulls into the square bolt shaft far beyond the mag. If the gun is pointed upward a pellet is able to fall out of the back of magazine and into the bolt shaft. The pellet is then able to roll back and fall down the cocking pin slot and into the hammer tunnel. When you pull the trigger the hammer will crush the pellet against the valve face. If you turn the gun sideways to try and diagnose the problem the pellet can roll back up the slot and in front of the bolt or behind the bolt if the bolt is still closed. When the bolt is in the closed position the square section buts tight up against the magazine. I had to leave the range early yesterday to fix the gun as the pellet had gotten on the backside of the bolt and it could no longer cock. I had the gun facing up a very small amount as I was shooting from the bench. This did happen before but the pellet fell out before I could realize what the problem was.

Gun is crap, do not buy.

That's a shame, I really had high hopes for the reximex lineup but so far nothing good has come out of them (well from the Tormenta at least). This is completely unnaceptable for a rifle at that price point.

It is a combination of the pellets being loose in the mag and pellet probe retracting back so far. Neither are an easy fix.

Usually you can adjust the preload on the magazine rotor by winding it one more turn.

The pellet installation hole is a 2 pellet wide slot, if the gun is facing up, the pellets sit back against the clear cover. The next pellet will slide partially out before the bolt is pulled back. Sometimes the pellet will turn sideways before the rotation is complete and then gets mashed in the mag. If I increase the rotation force then this will increase the chance of the pellet striking the bolt when it is pulled back damaging the pellet. I have emailed Carm in Croatia to see if he has plans on making a mag with the O ring retainer. I have purchased his mags for my Kral guns. The only difference I can see between these mags and the Kral mags are the retainer slot height

OK sounds like the mags have design flaw. They should make the wheels dividers a bit more pronounced

I’ve only had mine for a couple weeks but I am absolutely loving this thing. :D It is fast, mean and accurate.

I have it in .22, so not sure if that would even happen…

It only happens if the gun is upward when loading, 50% of my shooting with this gun. My new tank for the stock arrived yesterday so now I will at least have a 250 bar tank on a 250 bar gun. 2nd tank now in my 200 bar collection. Still waiting for the new but pad for the tank.

Out of curiosity, did you have to buy a new 250bar tank or did you get a replacement one for free on the basis that this was the manufacturer's mistake ? I still don't understand how you can advertise higher pressure than the ones written on the tanks, baffles me.

I purchased the tank. Raman at Css claims the bottle are not properly stamped. I don't want to over stress a tank or under air and have a low shot count. I am trying to add a reg in with a gun purchase. I will place it between the tank and the front air tube. my new tank is 4500 psi.

I cocked it with it pointing up last night not thinking, but what you experienced did not happen. Maybe your experience was a fluke?

I emailed them questioning the 200/250 BAR topic, but have yet to hear their answer.

The stock tank should have letters molded into it, not just stickered. What do the molded numbers/letters say? For example some bottle guns will have a sticker saying max fill 250 bar on the bottle but if you look at the molded writing it will say 300bar. That's because the gun is only rated for 250 but the bottle can handle 300. If the stock bottle has 300 molded into the aluminum you have nothing to worry about regarding the bottle anyway. If you are meaning the molded letters say 200 bar then that's a different story

Wes

The bottles are engraved PW200 bar Ph300 bar. It gets no clearer than that. To test there response I cut a pin using the precise outside diameter minus 2x of the wall thickness on the bottle. The pin was dropped in the bottle and used as an internal micrometer. The pin could move freely when 90 Degrees to the walls. I also measured the inside Volume of the tank with water. This is not a sticker issue.
