    If the magazines are a bit hard to get into place usually a light barrel adjustment will fix it.  Just pull the barrel forward a tiny bit and then lock it down.  If it goes in easy and then just does not cycle other than pellet choice try the JSB Mkll's.  Other than that I have no idea.

    I think he means it doesn’t cycle correctly, the rotor sticks

    I noticed this too with mine.  When I was using the 25 gr pellets switched to MKII's in 34 gr it worked a lot better.  Seems like the 25 gr are a bit short and causing the problems.

    Not sure of a fix just identified the problem.

    I took mine apart and maxed out the spring and has worked since then.

    IMO it’s just too big to work correctly, with a full mag the rotor has to move a fair amount of lead, plus  all the extra friction.

     

    FX QC is pants!

    I did not think of that but it makes sense that giving the spring a bit more tension would stop it from sticking.
