No but the shotgun version is not in Australia yet and has some legal troubles to overcome before it can. It is also more in the c-more price range, it'll certainly have an extra zero on the price tag than the others mentioned here!

if they allow the verney carron into aus, its a lil pricey. same with the cmore (would buy, but not legal in NSW because it looks scary)... its expenno too.

any other options?


Impala straight pull. Just arrived and they are much, much better then the Pardus/Adler

the uzkon lever action is way better to cycle than the other offerings with no feeding / ejection issues

GCA are the best advertising you can get, I even wonder sometimes if they might be sponsored by NIOA

I have the exact same one. Took it out today, boy I forgot how much fun that gun is. Gave it an absolute spanking, probably 500 shells through it, performed great.

Oh forgot to mention, if the muzzle break / flash hider gets stuck on after some use (which it almost certainly will,) grab an allen key or medium screwdriver, slip it through both sides of the muzzle break and use the leverage to twist it off. DONT do what I did and try heat it up over the stove and then melt a cloth all over it forcing me to buy a new one at 80 bucks.

Is that just a Pardus they convert to straight pull and put their badge on? Looks so similar, the stock is literally an exact copy

They are going after a very specific market - "The SP-1MF is made right here in Australia for you, the Austrian shooter."

so it finally arrived and was approved. talk about long winded process, god damn...

No lie. the gun is pretty junky. scratches on the finish, poorly cut and fitted high vis site and ghost ring knock off. the ventilated barrel sleeve isnt flush or fitted with any care. It does feel solid and substantial, however its very clear that its an entry level arm dressed up.

mine however has zero issue with extraction or feeding from what i can tell.

time to start shopping for an XM12 starts ...... now!
