    My mate has just bought himself a Brand New Hunter5 and he says it's pants.
    1.5 ftpe variance over the chrono, groups the size of a tennis ball, and air blowing backwards and out the sides.
    Chris you have already replied on another forum.

    Anyone got any ideas or help please?

    Ta.

    I liked the look of this rifle when it came out but the thought of it firing the pellets from the magazine makes it very prone to leaking air around the mag stick, just doesnt seem like the best idea. The possible problems will surely out weigh any advantages!
    Sorry i cant be of any help!

    If its brand new, take it back!

    Anything you do to fix it will likely void the warranty.

    Harry Preston had the hunter5 at this years Classic.
    One of the best and certainly the quickest shooting mag fed rifles I've ever used. Accuracy was spot on as we shot turkey rack after turkey rack as fast as we could. There were a lot if impressed and smiling faces.
    Take it back there clearly is a problem.
