My post was intended as humour. What possible help could we give you other than offering you a place to post a "Wanted" item (That would be in the Wanted forum). Your whining post sounds like you are a teenager looking for a gun you cannot have. This is a PAL-rated gun that has not, as far as I know, made it to Canada for you to purchase with a PAL, nor has it been detuned and offered in the Canadian market. I discovered that through the power of Google, but perhaps you are only familiar with Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites.

FYI:

Any rifle OVER 500 fps is PAL rated.

BTW - Where exactly are you located?

Don't know what an "fpc " might be, but if you're saying feet per second and just spelling fps incorrectly, then no. According to UK law a rifle must deliver less than 12fpe at the muzzle else the owner requires a firearms license. If that rifle model shoots a 14gr pellet at 600fps, then it is delivering about 11.19fpe, and as such is perfectly legal. At 1000fps it would be FAR over the limit and require an FAC.

As for availability ... nah. Apparently it is long since out of production. Read paddyfritz's post down this page where he explains that quality control was terrible and so they gave up on the model:

topic57921.html

Someone might sell you one used, but given the difficulty involved in shipping overseas and the cheapness of the rifle, it scarcely seems likely. You'd have more luck posting a wanted ad on airgunbbs or similar, something local to you.

Unless you want one for collection purposes, I would say the difficulty in getting one now would not be worthwhile. The supply of defective ones needing repair dried up about 3 years ago. Mike at Flying Dragon had a big pile of leftover stocks, which he ended up burning for heat in his shop 1-2 years ago. If you really want one, try on the yellow or american airgun classified.
If I.B. rated them at 600 they were being very optimistic. I would expect more like 480, unless its been worked on.
You cant get too much out of them due to the transfer port. If you over spring them, you may break sear/trigger parts which you would need to fab up to replace. Over springing them will also turn an already harsh gun into something that will rattle your fillings out.
