I guess I need to watch Matt’s review again, as I did not come away with the same conclusion.


Usually, sponsored reviewers give pros and cons, where the pros are gushed over, and the cons are sugar-coated. Matt uses less sugar coating than most of them, but he’s still gentle. Result is that you have to LISTEN for the cons and realize they may be sugar coated a bit. Don’t let the reviewer make you forget about them until you’ve through them through yourself.

If he says: “I don’t like xxx detail” with no qualification, you can consider that a personal preference. If he gives a reason, you have to put that in line with your own preferences and decide whether it’s a deal-killer.

What I remember from that review, a couple days later is:
+ Nice build quality, as usual
– Rotary cocking was high effort. We could see how hard he was having to push to cock it…
– Very loud, considering it’s shrouded
– Not in the same accuracy league as the S5xx, S4xx series
+ Nice finishing
– Trigger’s a bit heavy

My bottom line was that I can have a rifle that shoots as well, at the same power level, for 1/2 or less money, and it is only the great fit and finish that are missing.
