    It's a very nice gun well built and feels substantial in your hands.  Still as many have said the trigger is a bad joke in an otherwise wonderful gun. You pull and pull and about the time you get to the county line it finally lets loose.  The pull is not heavy nor is it gritty at all it is just looong and then it lets off not a crisp break not like anything I have felt before but kind of like a wet noodle it breaks.  It takes some getting used to but it is a trigger and it does werq.  I didn't even clean the barrel before I shot it.  It was all I could do but I did manage to get ten shots off before I had to go full auto.  It's insanely accurate at 50 yards on full auto like under inch and a half groups and that was without even trying to hold it tight.  I was pleasantly surprised by this.  Most of my semi auto groups were 5/8-3/4 inch with the JSB .22 18.2 pellets although I must admit I was very cold and a bit wobbly so it will probly shoot better than what you see.  I did manage to get the moderator and shroud off as I was going to clean the barrel but never got round to it as a friend stopped by to chat.  So, I shot it without the moderator on.  It was very loud and sounded cool though like a machine gun. ;^) Still a kid at heart.

    Really wanted to shoot at longer ranges and chrony the gun but there were others on the range and it was getting dark so never had the chance.  I'll try again in the next couple of days. after that it will be time to tune.

    Yellow is 9 and 19 shot full auto

    Red is 5 shot semi-auto

    Fancy gun, looks like fun.  The 19 shot magazine would eat up lead and air, I am sure.  I hope you can tune the trigger to your liking.

    Great feedback on the SK-19 Bio. Would you consider it a keeper?

    At the moment it's hard not to do the full auto thing every time I load it up. ;^)  But expect that will subside in the weeks to come.  It's a good thing that the mag does not come out otherwise it would be burning through the lead and air far more than it already is.

    Haha, thanks for your honesty and down to earth tale of these addictions this gun may cause! I certainly appreciates it!

    Yes, with the way it shoots with the first pellet I fed it makes future tuning look pretty good so I would consider it a keeper at the moment.  Not a single jam or anything near to one, easy to load and decent accuracy right out of the box.  Think I can get used to the funky trigger although I shot fairly well with it I still wish it was not what it is.

    Bio, that is disappointing about the trigger. I'm a trigger fanatic. I love a light trigger. The trigger on my Thomas has ruined me at about 5 ounces, but a trigger like that wouldn't do well with a semi, or full auto gun.

    Yes, I am also a trigger fanatic and although the trigger is strange for sure it is not heavy or gritty just the longish pull and strange break.  It bothered me allot at first but I have been out to shoot the gun twice now and although the trigger is still a bit distracting I am actually getting used to it.

    I doubt there is much that I can do with the trigger but after a couple of outings with a few hundred shots behind it I think I can get used to it.

    The trigger seems to be the only thing that everyone's not to pleased about. When I get mine, after blown' a little air. I plan to look at that trigger linkage. Could be as simple as making a new part. Needs to have some travel for semi safety. But it sounds to be extreme. 

    Paid for one – I just have to wait for now……..come on mid Dec.

    Can a spring plunger be added behind the trigger blade, like can be done with a Gauntlet or a Leshiy?

    I doubt that would werq as the gun does not fire until it reaches the end of travel which is at the very end/rear of the pull on semi-auto and it goes off towards the front/beginning of the pull on full-auto

    I am not sure this means a lot as I was getting too many fliers and upon closer inspection I found that the barrel is bad.  The last 3/8ths of an inch is way chewed up.
