    Those of you who have held one in your hands, is it a good buy? Almost sounds too good to be true. Not sure if I want to go with the bargain or pay for a higher end gun. Looking to buy a .25 soon. 

    I own one and for the money, it’s a great accurate rifle. JSB Kings and King Heavys shoot beautifully. The trigger adjusted right where I like it. The only annoyance is the very stiff bolt cycling, but that improved acceptably with use.

    I've owned a 25 gauntlet for about 6 mos and I do like it. It hammers backyard pests out to 50+ yards and puts a magazine of jsb king heavies into a touching group at 35 yds.

    I know a lot of people rave about this gun, but I do find some annoyances which are almost too much to forgive. The first is definitely the random POI changes: it is a very accurate rifle but the poi seems to change with the weather. Yes, it groups pellets awesome but sometimes the group is 2 inches from the previous group. I tried all the tricks and nothing totally stopped the problem. The most effective improvement was stretching the moderator spring to put more pressure on the barrel, but it's still a problem. The trigger was horrible until I honed it. The bolt cycle is finally beginning to be reasonably smooth after 1k shots or so. It's a bit loud compared to a Marauder, and Hajimoto's baffles and stripper didn't seem to help, although they did seem to improve accuracy of the H&N grizzlies. Th stock is ugly. Why is there even a barrel band if it doesn't touch the barrel?

    Hey, other than that, like I said, I like it! I had a Marauder, but it leaked, and it wasn't regulated. If I could get a regulated Marauder for $400 (and didn't leak), I'd dump the gauntlet.

    seems like the the gauntlet has had some big improvements made to it, i remember a couple years ago Ted did not even want to review the gun because the  cocking bolt was so janky
