“dr_beretta”I hope it stays fun for you. I received the same gun but the S6 variant from AOA earlier this week but had to mail it back to them the same day due to malfunctions regarding the magazine and bolt. Mine had trouble cycling the magazine correctly, likely bending the skirts of the pellets as they were being pushed into the breech. Then after about 100 shots the cocking bolt started to get stuck half way when pushing the bolt forward while a magazine was in place. I’d have to remove the magazine in order to get the bolt to go all the way in the breech so I could shoot the gun. I was so fed up with it I called AOA and shipped it back to them for repair or replacement. Hopefully they get it sorted out right the first time or I’m returning it altogether. First time I’ve had any real bad experience with all the PCP’s I’ve owned. 


I was aware of possible feeding and magazine issues during my research, and that the cycling issues seem to go away after breaking in. Even though it was owned previously, I experienced this on mine during the first few magazines where it would occasionally hang up on a pellet while cycling. After firing a dozen or so magazines the cycling has become smoother with no issues, knock on wood.

Good luck on yours, hopefully it will come back trouble free.
