I loved mine (just sold it). There is a similar-style carbine coming out soon that's reported to be better than the CX4, but I can't remember the details at the moment. Just make sure you can find extra mags before you invest that kind of money; reloading mags is a process you want to go through only after you've had a chance to rip through four or five.

This time around it's a PAL version; pesting would be a hoot and a half. Sticky trigger because of the mag design, but a very predictable break point.

I've had one for a couple of years or so. Haven't shot it much lately so I can't remember what it was like. :roll:

I see the one that AGS has is the PAL rated version. Mine is the toned down Canadian version. It did shoot considerably less than 500fps if I remember correctly. 380fps comes to mind. Mine is also the 'XT' version which came with a matching scope, muzzle brake, and handle/bipod thing. The main thing that annoyed me about the gun was the low fps, so if you have a PAL this one at AGS solves that problem.

If you search the forum I did several posts with comments and disassembly pictures, etc. It's actually a very interesting design internally. I remember I used to get an occasional missfeed problem with the magazine (I have three mags.) Maybe the missfeed problem was because of my dicking around inside - I intend to dig into the gun again and go over things again internally. At one point I had the gun operating in full auto mode, but there was no way that the mag was going to be able to index that rapidly.

I actually like the gun, but I acquired about 10-15 other guns in more or less rapid order after getting it and it sort of fell into limbo. It's a great plinker with the 30 shot magazine.

The above is not much of an answer to your question, but if you search for other earlier postings about the gun there might be something there to help.

I have a PAL so no issue there, though lleader's "XT" version sounds good as you list all the add-ons that I would think of getting. I'll stop short of the 9mm version though... :wink:

So apart from Seatec, not bad feedback and the US reviews on Pyramyd and Airgun Depot are all pretty good. Some complain about a heavy trigger but most seem to love it. Needs to be accurate though.

A repeater carbine is not a gun you'd buy for accuracy, but it's pretty decent at 10 m. - hampered probably most by the sticky trigger. This is a gun for fun, but it's pretty decent for close-range pesting. A target gun - ummm...no.

I love the look and almost got one, but comments where not so good for it's accuracy, specialy for a pellet gun, so I pass on it. For the moments the steel force is ok. But I'm watching what's new... 8)

Hmm... I thought the US reviews weren't too bad for accuracy but will check again. It will be expensive to run with those 88g cylinders too - should be 2 or 3 per tin of pellets so it will all add up. Shame there's no refillable 88g cartridge.
I could talk myself into the 9mm version at this rate...

Back a couple of years ago you could buy a two-pack of 90g carts for $17.99 at CTC. Just looked now and they are up to $20.99:
http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/jt-co ... p.html#srp

There is an adapter marketed under the Walther brand name that takes 2x12g carts and (almost) fits the CX4. (it is a hair too long but can be made to fit.) Search on Walther 2x12g adapter for info. It was not readily available in North America but is common in UK/Europe. Just a few months ago I was able to buy one used from a member here.

There are also ways to make the 88g carts refillable. I seem to remember that R&R Air Gun Repair (Rob?) might have offered this. You might also be able to find details on this on the web.

AGS has the 88g Umarex 2 pack for $20 so that's not too bad.
When you say the 12g adaptor "can be made to fit", what does that mean; any cutting of the stock or something like that? Also, how many shots do you get from the 2x12g? Thanks.

If you have a local CTC the extra $1 has got to be cheaper than shipping from AGS. Plus you get 4 more grams... :shock:

It shouldn't require anything too drastic. You only need to come up with less than 1/16". The thumbscrew on the end of the adapter is plastic and if filed should get you most if not all of the 1/16". You might be able to thin out the inside end of the stock a wee bit also. On my gun the cap actually snaps partly into place. There are variables involved - individual guns may differ, and since the interference is between the thumbscrew and the stock endcap it depends on the length of the 12g CO2 carts inside. See pics below.

I dunno. As I mentioned in the previous post I got the adapter not too long ago and haven't done more than dry fire the gun a couple of times to see if it worked. If you can find a reference to how many shots from a 88g then dividing that by 88 and multiplying by 12 should ballpark it, of course.

Thanks, would be about a mag's worth on that basis.

No, hang on a minute - about 2 mags worth as it is 2 x 12g isn't it? That makes it less than a couple of dollars overall going with 2 x 12g instead of 88/90g so not a huge saving though I guess it all adds up. (Is that right? I hate maths).

You're right. I should have said divide by 88 and multiply by 24(2x12)... :oops:
