Just picked this gun up from PBGateway. Its a cool gun, but there are a few things on it that I could do without.
First and foremost. Its too light. I know. I know. "What!!???? Too light!!???" Yes, too light. I mean, its like air. I like some "meat" on my guns. I dont want a "tank", but this is featherlite. For me, it could gain a pound or so. Second is the grip frame. Too thin. Granted I have xl hands, but with the frame you are limited on grip options. I cut out the wrap around part of some Virtues and used them as panels. Good enough. The built in dovetail mount I could also do without. I like the option of adding my own stuff, which, I still can. It just looks funny with the xtra dovetail. The trigger frame design I like very much aside from those two things. Its smooth and I like the larger than normal trigger guard. Next is the pump handle. Faaaaarr too small. Dimensions are: H-1 1/4"
W-1", L-4 1/2". There is just simply nothing to grip onto. Its like pumping and old BE Ninja, before they redid them. Id like to see the pump be more like 2x2x5". Thats still small. Finally, the dual pump arms that have the "guides". The problem here is that it doesnt allow for any play in the pump stroke. You must pump straight back and straight forward. Because the arms are "guided" it causes unneccasary friction. I like the dually arms, just not the guides. Aesthetically speaking, this is a looker. I like the finish as well as the not over the top milling. Its a great looking marker. I'm playing with it for the first time this weekend. I'm expecting good things on the field from it.

I sure after you get to use it a bit, it will really start to grow on you. I felt the same about my series5. Thought there was more than I wanted, then I saw it for what it really was once I began to dominate. Gave me the edge I needed against the "Dark Side".

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
tlane77 He's got a woody for your woods. splattttttt land
