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

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!

I cycled my Pardus a heap before using it and it helped. I used it once with about 20-30 shells and it was good..it then got stolen from my mates a week later so cant speak on its longevity ...

I believe these guys are not just bad at proofreading, but at interpreting what "Australian Made" means.
Note that while they state the "Australian Made" Logo is on their guns the pictures just have "Australia" actually engraved on the receiver. The only appearance of the logo is a cutout paper version plopped on some stuff in photo's.
To me this points to Trump levels of honesty and integrity.
There may well be some Australian input, but I doubt it qualifies as "Australian Made". Having a manufacturers license means SFA if you are not actually manufacturing.

Hi ThumbNT,

Found these recently. Bought one and it works great, think its the first one that works with the Pardus. Thought you might like it.

Another update

put 50 rounds through it over the weekend. Zero failures to feed, no misfires, no extractions issues. Works perfectly. However i am upset with the overall fit and finish.

Shot it this weekend with some Eley Olympic Blues, Winchester Bushman #6, some 00 buck and some slugs.

was jamming every 15ish shots, extraction issue, magazine tube would jam............

looks like another lemon.
