Thinking of getting one

Anyone own one or have an opinion?

I had a play with one of them before choosing to get a coach gun instead (I already have a lever action as well.) They seem to be the best quality straight pull that I've seen, much better build quality than your standard Pardus/Adler style guns. Also at a decent price, overall quite impressed to be honest

I had a mess around with one last week and i was quite impressed, i share the same opinion as ponky, the gun is at a higher standard compared to other straight pulls and at a fairly good price.

Do you know if the action can be kept open?

G’day Holstered

I have just bought the impala and have noticed that the bolt will lock in the open position during operation.Did the one you fired do this or am I just pulling back to far?

The operating instructions have been translated from Turkish and are not very clear

Anyone else had any problems?

Went to the range this morning with brand new Impala Plus to bust some clays.

Brand new gun never been fired

Fired three shots and......the charging handle came off, appears to be only pressed in.
Spoke to LGS apparently there is a modification to prevent this happening

A bit disappointing

Very disappointing
