Thanks! I am actually planning to convert to hpa. However, it's interesting you would say that, may still be applicable. What didn't you like about the Xisico?

Out of the box I couldn't use the rifle because the front end cap was badly leaking, I had to fabricate a new de-gassing valve for it and re-work the seal. Also the cap O-ring swell with CO2, so not very practical. I changed them over for QB O-rings (same size). Ah, and the rear plastic sight was deformed sideway, I couldn't adjust the windage far enough to use it, so I put a scope on it. Trigger is good, but the automatic safety can use a good lube, de-burr and polishing job. Other than that, it's a fine rifle, very accurate, easy to work on, it even has an OEM RVA, and yes, it's good looking! I'd say it's a good candidate for HPA conversion, according to what I saw on the net. I also saw that you can adapt a bulk fill cap for a QB on it. With some light grinding, I think the QB repeater mag could be adapted to it, but I'm not 100% sure, never saw anybody try it. HTH. :)

Thanks! Some quality control issues then. I thought I'd read the new ones had had some of those issues fixed, but I could be wrong. That repeating magazine add on sure would be nice!
