    Looks like they put the AA EV cocking lever and loading mechanism on top of a modified Rapid Block

    side levers and bolts make sense if your looking for a scoped rifle...

    i wonder why the trigger is 2" down below? like a daystate... same problem, 1/2 a ton of weight even further up in the air than you want it.

    looks like they raided a couple of different company's parts bins and made some crude bits to join them together, what an ugly gun!

    Not really. If you have a sidelever they seem to be better, but the lever ones like the walther can take some setting up to balance the pressure between keeping them closed and stressing the pins. I've seen a few whose owners have settled for just letting them fly open. I'm sure Jon can make it wonderful if it isn't already. :)

    Yes I remember having discussions vith various people about pin/shuttle tensioning and how to adjust them (the pin with markings on the shuttle, cheers Jim/Jon) and how to minimise stress on the pins (cock using a finger hooking the shuttle, pulling it back, only use the lever to close the breech, cheers Beryl) so to minimise pins breaking (a known issue on the 2002) Also knowing Jon and his expertise with Anschutz gave me the confidance to take the 2002 on.

    Could be arranged Rob . anyway you are a spring gunshooter now . only snag is the loading lever on your springer is about two feet long . funny it was only a while ago the HW77 came in and the boys with the 35Es were saying , not a proper rifle that . a bloke turned up at Lea Valley when it was an FT club with a full on airmasters 77 in a john welham stock and tried to sell it for £ 100 . we all laughed at him and said don't be silly . were all getting puff guns now .dear goodness i wished i had bought that rifle ??? HOLLY:):D
