I'm glad it started misfiring instead of getting to dangerous. Can't wait to see if it sorted it out. Will keep everyone updated

I just put a deposit on the 22 mag version, hoping most of the issues will be sorted out.

Depends if they still have the same barrel set up. I'd be pulling the stock off after the second to third use and checking them grub screws

Exactly the same thing happened to mine !!

I took it to Under Resistance Armoury here in Brisbane as it was under warranty, he repaired in about 2 minutes & said i happens to about 1 in about 100 rifles. Somehow they don't get torqued correctly from the manufacturer. Have not had a single issue since :) :)

Such a fun little gun !!!

Picked up mine yesterday, apparently this is a version 2 so should have all the issues fixed.

Ok first impressions, very light and small , almost feels like a nerf gun, from that side, I can see alot of fun will be had, my next thing I noticed was that the bolt was pretty tight and didn't slide as smooth as my other rifles , even after I gave it a good clean its still not smooth, its ok, it is a cheep rifle so I'm not expecting it to behave the same way as my $2k rifle , it may be something that will get fixed as it gets used, anyway Sunday will be test day, ill chuck a heap of rnds and see how it goes .

Just picked one of these up as a cheap plinker and heading off to try it out next weekend, Ignoring the debate around whether or not to clean a .22 at all; what have those with the Xocet used for a bore guide? My .22 bore guide won't go into the chamber as there is a big protusion from the top of the mag; the bolt itself is almost a semi circle rather than round.

I cleaned mine as I could see crap down the barrel and just something I like to do when I have a new rifle, as far as a bore guide, I didn't use one for this.

Thanks, mine was full of thick grease so (everywhere-bolt, action, stock, barrel...!) so cleaned it when I got it, that’s when I found my bore guide wouldn’t fit.

Had my first play of it today, ti be honest , its a fun rifle to have a mess around , accuracy wasn't too bad either , couple of things that s**t me was the single loads, the bullets are too small for single loads, but that's not the guns fault, in regards to a very tight bolt, it wasn't too bad after a clean and the added hoppes grease , ill try it at Ripley's next with a magazine load.

My rifle just came in so went and had a look. I noticed the triger was just a nice flat blade not the odd looking skeletized thing it previously had. I assume this is an update?

Got to have a crack with mine today (mkII also); very happy-bolt action is very short but positive, mag feed was faultless and once sighted in stayed tight. This was a <$600 package inc scope, bag & boresnake, for that money I reckon it’s hard to go wrong.

Those people that have one. How does the barrel handle the heat of constant shooting? Do you need to let it cool after 10 rounds? Do you notice accuracy reduce due to heat?

I don't think .22LR has enough powder or bullet friction to generate heat in anything but full-auto mag dumps.

Actually, even full-auto doesn't generate much heat in .22LR.

Thats alot of ammo to chew through!

My only concern is how much metal there is under the carbon and could that be an issue while banging away at targets?

Easiest way to find out is to grab a case of ammo and put it down the bore until accuracy starts to deteriorate.

I bought one of these a few months ago, but only fired it for the first time today.

Bolt in. Ammo in the mag. Mag in. Cycle the bolt. Loaded. Flicked the safety on. Pulled the trigger to check the safety. Safety works. Flicked the safety off (with my trigger finger away from the trigger)......

BANG.

Awesome.

Now I have to strip a brand new firearm to see what is wrong with it.

What a way to start a relationship with a firearm.
