    Congrats on your incoming beauty!  Don’t know why, but I still clean and organize the house whenever an expected package is arriving.  Hek, I still dodge a squirrel trying to cross the road and yell out, “Dang squirrel, you almost got yourself killed!!”  Best of luck, have fun, and please keep us informed of your Ataman’s performance.

Can’t believe you’ll get yours before me. I haven’t heard anything about mine since they told me they had arrived in America a few weeks ago…

    I pre-paid for mine months ago and became upset when they kept pushing the arrival date back. PA really followed up after I sent them a venom laced E-mail.

    Maybe they are “going through it” before they send it to you.

    mini review from only one evening…….

    1) weight and point ability are great.
    2) fit and finish great
    3) trigger great
    4) noise about the same as my Air Arms S410. Not great, and I have not even done chrony work to determine fpe.
    5) magazine good in and of itself, but here is the whammy—
         The gun is butter smooth when hand loading single shots
          The gun is smooth with the mag installed, with no pellets
           When you load pellets into the mag and index, the pellets cock before they go into the breach.  The pellets “jam” and the only way to remedy is a) push really hard on the lever and drive them home.
                     b) pull the lever back and push it forward in a tapping motion and one of the times the pellet straightens up and goes in smooth.
                     c smack the side of the action with your hand after the “jam to straighten the pellet up.
    all three of these are unacceptable for a gun of this cost and quality.
    the breach really accepts pellets by hand too easily- a bench rest petigree, this area then creates slop during transition from the magazine.
    Maybe after the breach O-ring breaks in thing will get better.  Only 1 in 15 index first time and smooth.  

    This is first and honest impressions.  If the indexing problem gets fixed, it is a keeper.  Have not even put the scope on it though for groups.

    I doubt it. It doesn’t make sense with the timing. If that’s all it was, it would have been done by now. It’s something else. For some reason they are holding it back.

    I received an email from PA. Looks like yours shipped out the 14th. I will email you the tracking #. Thanks for being so patience, I probably would’ve blown a head gasket by now!

Sweet! That means it could arrive tomorrow. Friday is the best day to receive an air gun! 

    I’m “working” from home tomorrow and the wife is out all day so it would get some good use if it arrives.

    Thanks Michael!
