    As All UK Deals have to be on Face to Face Status

    Before buying do you ask your Dealer to Try it or even chrono it

    As We often read in Advert's or write up's that the Gun is Full power
    But many are finding that they are several feet below - suggested power

    As We keep reading that most Air Gun Manufactures seem to be having
    Problems where New gun's are being returned to Distributor / Manufactures
    Often resulting in long delay's before customers get to use their New purchases

    Aware not All Dealers have Shooting Areas or Chrono's
    But @ today's prices it's something I would Expect

    Oh great another AT thread by bob, I have heard that if you use Defiant pellets it cures this several ft/lb loss in power and all guns run at 11.99 ft/lb without any deviation on them:D:D:D:D:D

    They blinking well should have. Surely has to be a requirement for any sensible RFD.

    Jeez you would hope so ?

    Bob can you back up this claim ? If thats true it makes a mockery of the guidelines most of us stand by .

    Dave, what that Not all Dealers have Shooting Areas / Chrono's ?

    I have visited a good number of Air Gun Shops - sure the majority do not have them :rolleyes:

    Re low powered Guns / New often reported on Air Gun Boards

    And get it a Lea Valley , when New Gun's are often Chronoed - @ not reaching Targets etc.

    My whole issue with AT is the Failure of Manufactures to Keep Customers
    Up todate with their current Activites

    And as well posted - that even with Power Seals it is still possible for a Air Gun
    AT Sealed to Exceed Sub 12FP - For which the owner could be prosecuted for
    But has No Control Over .........

    Defiants - are not the ideal pellet - and as Stated before I have No financial
    Interest in them - apart from being a British made product - of a Long time Associate ;)
