I have received my EV2 in the mail a little more than a week ago. I filled it on the weekend. and shot it on Sunday. Man what a nice gun. It is unreal how accurate a gun like that can be.

I have been reading a lot of reviews from current and past EV's. It seems like there is some people who are lucky and others, not so much.

All I know, is mine works like a charm.

The only thing that I would change on this gun is a thicker hamster. To fit me better of course.

If you are thinking of buying one, get them now while they are still available.

Thanks

Biagio

I am an old guy, and just don't get the "hamster" reference? Very nice EXPENSIVE gun!
Just got my 2nd 2240 in from Scopes and ammo today! Unfortunately the Wife and I are putting in laminate flooring in my man cave this weekend!

For those wondering; "Hamster" is another term for a 'Kneeriser" A piece that comes out from the bottom of the stock to rest on your knee, this helps to steady the gun when shooting. The height is adjustable so you can raise or lower it (I have made new rods for mine so it is "more adjustable" as I am 6'4") to suit your shooting position/style, it is also a bonus when shooting offhand.

Thanks Guys
Nice comments
I only want to change one thing, the hamster. It is a little on the low side, it only extends about 3 inches. I'm thinking a 2x4 on it's side will be enough rise for me. The Hamster is only 1.8" wide and 9" long.
I'm thinking that I can use a velsro system to attach and detach the extra hamster.

Please let me know what you guys think.

Might I suggest that you take a look at the Rapid Air Weapons knee rest. It's a bit expensive but it is truly a beautiful piece of kit, worthy of your EV2. The almost infinite adjustment also makes it very adaptable.

I made new rods to allow my kneeriser to come down further, they may not be necessary if you attach some sort of cushion/padding though...

The Cusion sounds like a great idea. The only thing about that, is that I have to lug around an extra item.

Thanks for the tips guys, this will help my cause a lot

Most will attach the pad to the riser block and leave it there, so not really an extra piece. Some glue them, some tie them and some velcro them.
