I´m also a recent Ataman Ultra owner and I share some of the related issues. Now it seems to be O.K. but several mods were needed to improve the original performance. No opinion regarding the magazine, it was returned because it had a very small crack in one of the pellet loading holes so, no test done.
I think that the ultra concept is great for the ones that need portability and don’t like/want bullpups. In my opinion this carbine should be shooting between 18 to 22 ft.lbf (24-30j). In my case that implied reducing the regulator pressure and hammer spring length (one ring removed) from the, out of the box, configuration. The metal parts quality seems very  good and I like the folding stock, it´s not common plastic but a material similar to my peli gun case. My wood stock is symmetric but I agree that it should be larger.



Thanks for that. That makes me feel a little better. Mine has gone back to PA so it’s good to know they aren’t all like that. I was thinking that I could pay someone to fix the rest of the issues if I had to but there was no way to fix the stock except make a new one…

The folding stock actually unscrews so it can be easily replaced with a real AR one. The sizing of the buffer tube looks to be the same as the airsoft M4 stocks so you would want to buy a whole new AR folding stock adapter, buffer tube and stock to replace it. 

 I was thinking of booking some time with Ernest when I get mine back to get it tuned for an acceptable shot count. In his YouTube clip, he mentioned being able to get 30 shots per fill. That sounds more like it (although still not great). 

The air tube is a similar size to the Mutant Shorty  and the barrel length is not far off so this should be a pretty good indication of what is possible in terms of shot count, power and noise control. I can’t rely on too many 300bar fills. Once I’ve used my tanks a few times, 200-250 bar fills will be more common.
