    I've a few questions if you have?

    mainly wether the front and rear portions are actually
    a single piece or Just located with the side plates?

    cheers

    it's an interesting looking bullpup, sort of like an FX impact but potentially less sh1te.

    there's quite a few floating around, some legitimate UK ones some from Europe.
    not that it makes a blind bit of difference the service the importers offer.

    your a fan then.... haha


    I never said it was good....

    just curious as to the actual make up of the action.
    if it's one piece il consider it for a project. if not, it won't do what I want anyhow.

    as said above,. I've found the pics I needed.

    it certainly has some design flaws

    I shan't bother

    Oh wel,

    I have one and shot 10 tins of pellet’s with it, stil alive .... yes it has two places where it is sharp(ish) but so is my picatinyrail of the Edgun Leshey that I have...

    At our club there is someone with a FX Impact, very nice but it is almost twice the cost of the Priest wich doesn’t have 50 O rings, and a hundred differend adjustment thingie’s.....

    Only thing I did was bring it to near 12 footpounds and grind a little of the side of the hammer, where the hammer latch sometimes would slide alongside thus slowing the hammer down.

    No more issue’s, and I have had more with more expensive guns!

    So far barrels of fun, and very acurate!

    Oh yes!

    Today I ran the course with the Priest and a cheap chinese scope.... I added a side wheel and markt the sidewheel every 5 meters ...... hardley any wind, from 9 up to 50 meters and nothing survived, everything fel over, so FT is in reach of people that can not or wil not pay a shitload of money for a big Nikko or Sighttron!

    Some bullpup's mayebe ****.... but the name Priest ( wich is a little club or whatever you use to hit a fish over the head with)
    Has the balance of a rifle, but not the length! 450 shots per fill, in sub 12 footpound!

    Ok I did the same with the Walther LG 400 and the big nikko...... new for just (complete) 4000 Euro ...

    But the Priest and scope only did 1340 in total! New!!

    Regardless what anyone says, I’m happy and have had no issues, I cannot say the same for my mate and his FX Impact..

    But what do I know

    To add to my commitment...... sold the Walther LG 400 wich is a formiddable match rifle!!! Nothing wrong with that!!
    But not as much fun as the Priest, and ........ crap the dog needs a new knee!! I was planning on buying a Big Nikko for the Priest! Guess that has to wait.....

    So far trying to add and remove to make it more suitable for FT ...

    Don’t pay attention to the colour.... that is also going to change!!

    Then a adjustable shoulder pad........ saw someone juse it, made one my self..... but no! Not my thing!
