    .  i have had a few , and also a few that auto-loaded the next pellet as you were cocking the barrel  mendoza rm1000, crosman brought some in and called them rm8, and 522 (577 for .177)…….seems i have seen of the mexican-made magnum springers to have a 'rws' in the circle stamped into the receiver…  the older mendozas were rated at 1100 fps in .177 and 900 fps im .22 caliber – both rifles easily achieve these speeds with crosman lead pellets.  this was because back then, mendoza arms WANTED your shot cycle to diesel or ignite – they even had an arrow guiding the shooter to put oil drops in a hole in the back of the scope rail .  the piston inside has a felt ring that circles the piston just under the new piston seal    .  of course each shot flys out either super-sonically, or at different speeds (700-1200 fps) .  it was predictable sometimes with the ignition method , but i soft-tuned a .177 mendoza rm1000 and it shot great,,,, the crosman mendozas had a single trigger blade, which was easier for my accuracy.  they shoot a little slow, but i found the mexican air rifles much more pleasant and accurate to shoot with a heavy lube tune.  .  i'd sure like to try a can of those .22 domed pellets you guys sell that work in the auto loader tube of the .22 break barrels (short, stocky pellets didnt jam in the feeder / loader tube) if you still have some around.  please reply…. – paul.   here's a link – have a look :  http://productosmendoza.com/3-rifles

    I had one in .22 a few years back-seemed like the bore was a tad oversized, it liked RWS Domes the best. Mine had the split trigger which was pretty nice. I could not get a scope to sit still on the dovetails no matter what I tried. I ended up with a rear peep sight on it. Sold it to raise $ for my R9, never looked back. I will say they are built like tanks-once they quit dieseling they group OK with the right pellet.
