First off Man what a Storm last night!!! when I called the power company they said Oregon had about 92,000 People without power!!! The power is still out tonight and we are at a local motel anyways enough about the boring stuff!!!
Got the Gun today they guy said it was in new condition and he was definetly right. It still had the FX Box, Manual and AOA Paper work dated 12-08-05 including the 12 Shot Chrono test they did with the 16 grain JSB's average of 918 FPS. I looked over the Gun pretty good and couldn't find a scratch, nick any anthing. I was really Pumped couldn't wait to get home and try it out. I loved the way the pistol grip felt (I'm a big AR15/M4 fan) But I'll see how I really like it when I get a scope on it. I'm going to try and put a Eotech on it :wink: It was filled to around 200 BAR
Well Figured out how to load the mag it's not as simple a Rapid but but almost an exact copy. Got the mag loaded up with some CP's squeezed the trigger and the report was alot less then I expected alot less then firing my R9 off the back porch!! the sound of the impact into the tree was actually louder. Big grin on my face!!!
But.......went to squeeze off the next round and nothing cycled the bolt, bang it shot then nothing, cycled the bolt again bang, hmm defitley not a semiauto finished off the clip that way by manually working the bolt went back carefully went over the manual made sure I was doing everything right seemed to be so I tried a few more clips and still the same problem would only work by manually working the bolt got it to shoot semiauto about 2-3 shots at the most but then would stop
Daylight was running out.... still no electricity.... wife had my cell phone hers was dead.... no internet to reach the guy I bought it from or send out a SOS to you guys on the board...Holy Crap it was like I just shot my eye out with my Red Ryder BB Gun!!! Think Think what can be causing this I was telling my self???? Hmmmm did the gun function without the Mag? yes it functioned fine I tried that and it was alot louder definetly got my neighbors attention nothing like "Gun fire" as it's getting dark it a neighborhood with no electricity
OK moved the testing indoors & got the Pellet trap.
Loosend the mag a little so it moved freely when released under tension, that seemed to help shot another mag indoors with less jams got about 4-5 shots then it would hang up again and only work manually. I was on about my 7th mag and it finally started working Woohoo what a frigging Blast!!! Lit a Candle so I could see to load the mag and pellet trap (no Joke!)I couldn't load the mag fast enough very very cool!!! I shot about 3-4 mags and it worked great and then it was really low on air I think I took it down to about 80 BAR.
Well I'm just sitting here at the motel hoping the power will be back on tommorow you don't know how bad I wanted to bring my tank, gun, trap and pellets with us to the Motel but a wife and 2 young Boys kinda keeps me from that! So I'm really looking forward to trying it out some more tommorow I'm really hoping it will work fine. Even with all the problems at first I'm still really excited about the Gun, when it started working right I was seeing Sage Rat after Sage Rat falling one after another this spring.
I think it just needed the mag loosend up a little, and to be shot some to get it working? the guy I bought it from said he only shot it about 50 times, do you think it just kinda needed to be broke in from sitting for so long?
Any feedback I can get from you Revolution owners about this would be really appreciated.
Sorry for such a Long Post Guys and No pictures.....I will get some when The power comes back I promise!!
