Pre-ordered last Oct or so from Pyramyd.

labelled 600FPS so shipper asked for PAL and then here it is!

Fit and finish are great.

Co2 system in butt stock is very clever.

faux wood furniture is visually excellent but just doesn't have the wood density but not a huge draw back.

Looks and feels like the real thing though lever is plastic as is barrel shroud it seems but in scale and feel it is fine.

live the brass front sit insert and the moose antler rear sights.

Cycles like the real thing but does not pitch the shells as far due to internals and the fact the shells are still pretty heavy coming out but... that's good as they need to be easy to find again!

AND it shoots exactly where I aim it at leas then test indoor at 10M.

Worth every penny and the wait.

Lets watch for the golden boy versions etc.

Cant wait to pair it up with my revolvers and do some indoor CAS practice this winter.

That is great you got what you hoped for!

On a strange note...
I received this reply when wondering about shipping to us in Canada.

"Afternoon,
We do apologize but Pal or not we are not able to ship any airgun over 500 fps to Canada. we do apologize for any inconvenience.

Yes I will need a leather but stock cover soon and lever wrapping to as closely match my PB version I compete with.

Will get a shot count once I can spend an hour with it and run a full load through

Pics this weekend

Hmm I guess I got lucky before they realised it was PAL rate up here. Did have to provide proof of PAL to UPS before they would bring it across. My order was placed months ago which may have something to do with it.

I just received my from AGS on Tuesday, and my first impression when I picked it up for the first time was it has some weight to it because it's heavier than it looks. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought both lever and barrel shroud are metal because my has small scratch on the lever where hit the second trigger lock shown metal under the paint. It is too bad it doesn't have real wood stock, but it doesn't bother me that much. Did some chrony last night I got high of 620fps and low 560fps on Copperhead BB over 10 shoots. 7.33gr JSB pellet shoot high of 580fps and low of 540fps. Overall, very happy with the performance. I guess have to find another time to test out how accurate it can shoot, but so far it seem to shoot very well at 10m according other reviews.

Jesse these parts could be an alloy of some kind. I didn't have my glasses and a lot of time to get up close and personal just had a polymer feel to me.

I knew that feeling, and a lot of time I even felt that is real metal or wood, but it's fake or vice versa. Just like the rear stock on this lever action, I bet some people will though that's real wood by just look at it. :rolleyes:
