It has arrived! I aired it up and put about 70 rounds of two year old paint through it at my poor apple tree. Out of the box it was shooting at 305-315 fps. I turned the reg down and now have it shooting in the 275-285 range. The gun was easy to aim and put that old paint on target. I never tested the anti-chop.

My impressions. The trigger is lighter/faster than a classic mag but not my ULE. Part of that might be the extra leverage I get from the two finger blade trigger. It had a nice short pull. I plan to give it the set screw mod to make it even shorter.

The action felt much louder and violent than I thought it would be, though the recoil seemed minimal. I did a few slow triiger pulls and it felt like the bolt slammed forward with a solid FWUMP! When I released the trigger, another solid FWUMP! Reminds me of an autocockimag with a loud 3way/ram.

My wife said it was quieter than she thought it would be but she was feeding the baby inside during the test. I wonder if it's a case of the sound seeming louder to the shooter than to anyone else. She's been inside for other backyard tests and could tell a difference. A different barrel will likely quiet it even further.

The frame felt a bit cramped in my hands but I think that was due to me using a 45/4500 when my other guns have rail mounts that put the same tank about an inch further down and further back. I think it will be more comfortable with my 68/4500 or to swap in one of my rail/ASA combos from one of the other guns.

The barrel is incredibly fast to twist on and off. It's actually a shame that cocker threads have become the industry standard.

Overall, I think I'm going to like it. ...and that came out wordier than I thought it would.
