    I would start to push the pellet with the side lever and it would jam up. Then, let a little pressure off the lever and tap magazine with fingers. Now slowly put pressure on lever to feed pellet into breach. 

    I did this 20 times then the mag must have worn in because now the pellets just feed in without the finger tapping and 50 rounds latter all is still good and smooth.

    I was tempted to buy an Ataman rifle, but when I saw the magazines and their price, it turned my off.  These are complex little gizmos which seem a bit tricky to insert into the rifle, and they cost $108!!!!  Wowza.  Otherwise, i’m impressed with the quality of the gun and how well it shoots.

    The mags on the Ataman really aren’t complex to use at all. They’re actually easier than my other guns. You just put the pellet in and turn it. I didn’t even need the instructions (good job too). Other than the price, it’s my favorite magazine system I’ve used to date. They are much better than the other auto-indexing mags I have used. You don’t even have to take it out the gun to load so you don’t have to set the gun down somewhere if you’re in the field. 

    The way it’s designed, it seems like the intention is that it would mainly be used as a fixed mag. The shape isn’t great to be carrying a spare in your pocket anyway. I think a lot of people will conclude that a second mag isn’t 100% necessary with this gun once they try it. 

    For one thing, with the stock tuning, you aren’t going to be putting tons of mags through it before a refill. 

    I still think they should drop the price of mags by 2/3 though, or at least include a 2nd. If you’re someone who has to have 3-4 mags then it pushes the price of the Ultra Compact up to a level where the competition is far meaner. At $1800, people might start asking themselves if they should just buy an FX Impact or a Daystate Pulsar.

    If you get the chance, I would highly recommend trying an ultra compact before making any decisions based details like that. It feels sufficiently different to any other pcp rifle I have shouldered that, just picking it up could change your mind. It really feels very good. It reminds me of how it felt when I first tried a Sig MCX at the range (the firearm, not the co2 gun). I remember thinking that I wish pcp guns felt like that.

    Ataman has a great pedigree, they build the smoothest side lever action I ever felt. Daystate thinks so too, their partnership to build match rifles is exciting! I may have said too much… Idk if they’ve made it official yet..
