got one on Tuesday, was last one, asked for a rain cheque as well
stripped down, lubed, inspected, reassembled, test fired
returned the gun and rain cheque to the store on Thursday, got back my $64.99 + tax, and very happy now

it is just a complete garbage from A to Z in short form
it was great experience to tear it down and realize that not much I can do with it, if someone feels different it is OK,
why not to pay more and get just a good product and enjoy it???

Every one is entitled to there own opinion and thank you for sharing yours !

I feel it is a very accurate sub 500fps air rifle and when packaged and with the 3x9 x 32 mm scope it has zero competition at this cost of $64.99 !
